What is meant by the term backloading?
Can this save you money?
A backload is a cheaper alternative to move interstate. You end up sharing the space available in the truck, rather than having it all reserved for you.
For example if your move happens on a 60m3 truck, and you have 20m3, you only pay for 1/3 of the cost for that truck

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.
