Backloading A Box Or A HousePerhaps the pickup needs to be scheduled for pickup over a 48-hour window because they're not sure if the truck will make it to you that afternoon, or maybe the delivery will be within a 2-day window because they're not sure how far they'll get in a single day before being forced to stop due to logbook hours.
Obviously this service isn't for every scenario or every customer. Some people need a specific schedule and that is exactly what the other removalist services are for. However, if you've got the flexibility that drivers sometimes desperately need from some of their customers, they want to reward you for making their life easier by giving you an even better price for your move.
So how exactly does that look for my move you may be thinking? Let's take a move from Brisbane to Sydney for example. It's a pretty quick trip for any removalist, a typical move could be Monday, delivery on Tuesday. That's the premium service. If you booked a backload, you'd be looking at pickup Pickup on Monday/Tuesday, with delivery 1-3 business days after collection and you would be given you 24 hours notice on the exact day of delivery.

So why is backloding so popular?

  • A backload is perfect if you're buying/selling some furniture, moving things back home, sending some personal items to your kids at university etc.

  • If the items are not desperately needed immediately at the other end, why not save yourself hundreds by having the items be slightly slower?

  • The best part is the worst-case scenario with a Backload, it's only ever a few days slower, hardly any noticeable difference at all, yet you're saving a few hundred that I'm sure you can spend on another aspect of your move!

Advantages of Backloading Removals Over Basic Removal Services

Backloading removals often means your removalist is loading your goods on their trip back to their home town or region. The idea is that people are moving house pay for the truck to take their goods on a certain day, then the vehicle has to get back (although without a load). It would otherwise be a 'wasted' trip - but if they can get a load on the way back, they can recoup some costs and offer a cheaper service.

Being too organized to backload

If you organize your move three or more months in advance, it is unlikely that any movers will have a straight backload trip available.

Most people are not that organised, so most removalists may not have a set schedule yet, so you're more likely to get right backloading rates if you engage your moving company in the last six weeks or month before you move.
