So, you’re contemplating moving from Melbourne to Adelaide. We get it, Adelaide offers a great lifestyle that’s far removed from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne, instead featuring a stunning coastline and rolling hills. It’s certainly an appealing location to move to. However, the move from Melbourne all the way to Adelaide is a long one. Have you considered how you’re going to get this interstate move done? Doing it all yourself is a lot of work. From shifting the furniture onto the trailer to driving it all the way to Adelaide, it’s likely that your possessions will suffer some damage along the way if you do it yourself. That’s why it’s best to leave it to the experts.
How Do You Move Interstate?
Moving from Melbourne to Adelaide takes roughly eight hours by car, and that’s without stopping to stretch your legs or grab a bite to eat. This makes it a reasonable distance for our movers with a van to perform your move. We can meet you in Melbourne at any address of your choice to pick up your belongings and then drive them all the way over to Adelaide. We will bring them to wherever you are, just name the time and place.
The alternative option of having your possessions shipped or delivered via air freight can be a more expensive choice and take just as long. However, you can quickly fly to your new home and meet us there if you’d prefer not to make the long drive yourself. After all, you’re not driving your belongings up, so there’s no need to spend that much time in the car.
How Much Does It Cost to Move Interstate?
Here at EasyMove, we want to make it more affordable to move interstate. That’s why we charge a fixed cost for these moves based on one of two things. The first is the number of moving trucks you require. If you have a lot of stuff, you may need more than one. We can charge you depending on the number of trucks you need. The second is that we can set a fixed cost that depends on the number of bedrooms you have in your home. A four-bedroom house tends to have more items in it than a two-bedroom, so we charge you accordingly based on this.
How Long Does an Interstate Move Take?
It’s always a good idea to allow extra time for an interstate move. After all, your belongings are embarking on a long journey from your old home in Melbourne to your new place in Adelaide. Allow a day or two for the movers to pack the belongings in the truck, then add time for the drive and unpacking. You can expect it to take at least few days but no more than a week all up.
What Do You Need to Do When Moving Interstate?
Moving interstate provides a unique set of challenges for any family. Here is our advice for factors you need to consider.
What are you going to do with your pets? Assuming that you are bringing them with you, you must plan in advance how they are going to reach Adelaide. You may be planning on driving them in the car, but if you’re flying, you will need to check if they can come on the plane.
Then there is the issue of what to do with them while the movers are at your house. We recommend asking a friend or relative to look after them for the day. You’re going to have movers walking in and out of the house, carrying heavy furniture. Opening and closing the door each time isn’t really an option, but you don’t want your pet to escape. That’s why you should see if you can get them out of the house for the day.
