Reliable Interstate Removalists

When you use us here at Dawson for your moving interstate, you can benefit from:

  • The services of an experienced team who are used to moving belongings across the country. We have the right vehicles and drivers to ensure a safe, rapid move.
  • A complete moving service, that includes packing, stowing, transporting and unloading at your new destination.
  • If you can’t move into your new location immediately, we are able to store your possessions securely, moving them into your fresh home or office when you’re ready.
  • Movement of awkward, large or heavy items a speciality! We have a team of piano and pool removal experts that ensures your valuables are secured during the move. If necessary, we can also partially disassemble larger furniture pieces for easier, safer travel. Once they reach their final destination, we’re able to reassemble them as required. 

One of the biggest issues you’ll often find yourself dealing with when moving interstate is what to do with your larger items of furniture. From sofas to tables and desks, these items can be almost impossible to fit into your own vehicle. What’s more, a bed may not even fit into a hired removal van!

That’s why the interstate removalists at Dawson Moving & Storage are happy to offer a partial disassembly service. We can take your big pieces of furniture apart without causing any damage, helping you to move them across the country before they are safely reassembled in your new home.

Many people think the best option is to sell their larger pieces of furniture and buy new ones when they get to their new house, but this doesn’t have to be the case. If your new home isn’t yet fully prepared for your move, you can get a self-storage unit to keep your valuable furniture or items safe and extraordinarily safe.

Prompt, professional and competitively priced, if you want an interstate move that’s smooth, stress-free and competently performed, it’s time to get in touch with Dawson Moving & Storage NQ. We  keep your move safe during COVID.

    How To Prepare For Your Moving Interstate From Queensland

    There are many elements to moving interstate. Dawson Moving & Storage NQ are your expert interstate removalists that will take care of all of your removal needs, ensuring all of your contents arrive safely and in the same condition as they left in. In the meantime, we suggest that you read this ultimate moving checklist to help you prepare and make your move stress-free. We also suggest that you do this:

    Change your registration: You have to update your registration details if you plan on driving while living interstate. This includes changing the address on your licence and registering any vehicles used in other states. Depending on which state you are moving to, you could be fined if you haven’t changed over your licence and registration within a certain period.

    Cancel and update your utility services: You don’t want to end up paying for someone else’s utilities, so make sure to cancel all of your utility services before leaving Queensland. It is recommended that you set up your electricity, phone, internet and other services for your new home well in advance because there might be delays, and you don’t want to move into a home without utilities.

    Update your address on the electoral roll: This ensures that you will continue to receive information about elections and other voting-related activities in your area. It is also the way the state or territory and Federal governments keep their records up-to-date.

    Research schools: Australia has a national curriculum, but certificates, subjects and school terms vary depending on where you live or what school system you’re in. It’s essential to do your research before the move so that you can be better prepared when it comes time for your child to start at their new school.

    Let us take care of everything involved in an interstate move so that you can focus on getting settled into your new home instead. We also provide an insurance policy for your belongings. This ensures the safety of your belongings no matter what happens on the road. We offer free quotes over the phone or online, which means there are no hidden fees whatsoever – our prices are final once we give you a quote because we believe in being upfront with our customers from the very beginning.

    Interstate Moving FAQs

    Do you offer back-hauling?

    Rather than come back from an interstate move with an empty truck, we are sometimes able to offer a move back to our initial destination for a reduced rate. This is known as back-hauling. Note that if you wish to take advantage of a back-haul, you won’t have the same flexibility over time and date as you would if you booked with us conventionally. Get in touch to see where, if anywhere we have a back-haul trip available.

    Do you do a pre-trip survey?

    We offer a tailored price that’s geared to meet your specific moving needs. Whilst some moves can be costed remotely, in other circumstances we will come out and take a look at the volume and type of items that require transportation, before coming back to you with a customised estimate.

    Do you offer a complete moving service?

    Yes, if required, you can walk out of your old home and we will pack everything for you, then unload it where required at your final destination. There is no need for you to do any packing, lifting or unpacking unless you wish to.

    How do you work out the cost for an interstate move?

    Our costs are primarily based on the distance your goods will need to be transported, how difficult they will be to load and unload, and how many possessions you have that require moving.

    How do I reduce what I need to move?

    It can get expensive to move everything in your home. After all, you’ll have decades-worth of belongings that need to be transported hundreds of miles away. Before you start packing, set some time aside to declutter.  Consider how long you need to prepare for the move, and prioritize packing all important documents and items. While anything still in good condition can be donated, you can earn a bit of money too by taking part in a garage sale or auctioning off some of your items on a website such as eBay.

    Not only does this help you to remove some unnecessary weight from the truck and leave more room for your essential items, but it can play a big part in getting you settled much quicker in your new home. The extra funds you raise can even help you to decorate after you’ve moved!

    How can I reduce the cost of my interstate move?

    Top tips to reduce costs include: – Only take what you absolutely have to. – Consider a back-haul. – Give plenty of notice. – Do the packing and furniture disassembly yourself. Dawson NQ provide a one-stop solution to all your interstate moving requirements. If you don’t have enough cash for your urgent move, you can talk with one of our agents to be in our Move Now, Pay Later program.

    Is it easy to move to a new state?

    Any move can be a stressful time, but moving interstate is a big step to take. After all, you could be moving hundreds of miles away to somewhere you have no friends or family, especially if you’re starting a new job. If you’re not ready for the move, then it can be a major source of stress.

    With our removalists taking care of all your belongings, one thing you need to think carefully about is whether you’re going to drive or fly. If you’re flying, book your flights well ahead of time for the best prices. If you’re driving, get your car serviced before you set off to avoid any unexpected breakdowns along the way.
