Moving out of your house, even to a nearby neighbourhood, is a hectic process. It can also be expensive too since you have to rent out a truck, despite choosing to pack your items on your own. So when you have to relocate to another state, you could be overwhelmed at all the costs that you have to bear. Fortunately, hiring a single tuck is not the only option available to you. Over the years, more and more Australians are opting for backloading as a viable solution due to the myriad benefits that it accords. If you have never heard of or tried backloading before, read on to learn why you should consider it for your interstate relocation.
What is backloading?
In simple terms, backloading refers to having your items packed in a truck that is already scheduled for a move. Therefore, instead of having to hire a moving truck, you instead have your belongings either fit in one truck or have them shared out among several trucks that will be either going to or are passing by the state that you are relocating to. While this may sound unsafe for your items, it is actually much more convenient, and you can be assured that your belongings will be handled with care. Moreover, you only pay for the space taken up by your belongings.
What are the benefits of choosing to backload?
Professional transportation of your belongings
Although you may think that packing and transporting your items on your own is a no brainer, the reality is that different items will receive specialised handling since the movers are trained in the professional removal, transportation and delivery of your items. Moreover, since the professionals know how best to pack the truck to ensure maximum space efficiency, you could end needing only one or a couple of trucks to ferry your items to the new state.
Invaluable insurance coverage
The second expense that you need to worry about when you transport your items on your own during an interstate move is insurance cover. And if you have already spent a substantial amount of money on paying the deposit for the new house, rent, utilities, move-out cleaning and more, you could be under the impression that you can overlook the insurance. Instead of risking having to pay for damages to your stuff out of pocket, it is best to opt for backloading. The removalists will have the necessary cover to ensure any damaged items will be compensated, and this will be invaluable for your peace of mind.
