Backloading: Sydney to Melbourne

Moving interstate in the near future and worried about the cost of removalists? If you’re looking for an affordable alternative to interstate removals, Transcorp Removals & Storage can provide assistance with our backloading services for your house move. Backloading from Sydney to Melbourne involves your furniture being transported in a truck performing another job at the same time, resulting in a lower cost for your interstate relocation.

Backloading can also involve using a truck’s empty space upon its return journey after it’s finished another job. For example, you can utilise the space in a truck that’s driven to Sydney and would otherwise be driving back to Melbourne empty. It’s never been easier to save time and money when moving interstate.

Backloading Frequently Asked Questions

To help you decide if backloading from Sydney to Melbourne is right for you, we’ve answered the following frequently asked questions about backloads:

What is Backloading?

Backloading is the name given to removals that use a single truck’s journey to carry out one or more removalist jobs at the same time. This can be in the form of a truck carrying items from multiple clients in one journey, or a truck being used for another job on its return trip instead of making the journey back to its original location empty.

Why Opt for Backloads?

There are many reasons why backloads are preferable to hiring traditional interstate removalists. The top reasons include:

  • They’re a more affordable option, helping to save you money on your interstate relocation that could be better spent on other things. If you don’t have enough items to fill an entire truck, backloads offer an excellent way to save some cash.
  • They benefit the environment, as backloads either double up with another removalist job to save a truck or use a truck that would otherwise make its return trip empty. This minimises emissions and reduces our environmental footprint.

Are My Belongings Safe?

Yes, all items being backloaded are treated with the greatest care to ensure they arrive at your new destination safe and sound. Our removalists carefully catalogue all belongings and use itemisation to ensure the right items are delivered to the right place, meaning you don’t have to worry about sharing a truck with another interstate backloads job. We also offer insurance for added peace of mind that covers theft and accidental damage. Speak to a Transcorp representative today to request a competitive insurance quote for backloading.
