Moving Furniture with uShip in Australia

When it comes to moving furniture – whether it’s a single piece or a whole house – uShip has you covered. We make finding the perfect removalist easy. All you need to do is create a listing and let our marketplace of expert removalists compete for your business. They each have a profile so you can view their moving history, customer feedback or any other relevant information. Who knew moving furniture could be so easy?

How to Transport Furniture

With uShip, you can move your furniture in three easy steps.

1 | Create Your Listing

The first step is to create a detailed listing for the furniture you need moved. You’ll want to include details such as height, approximate weight and a picture of your item. Be sure to include any special moving conditions, such as if it needs to stay upright or is fragile. It’s important that the removalists know the level of care required. Your listing should also include your desired budget and time frame.

2 | Choose the Best Moving Service

The second step is to choose the best transportation service. Once your listing is posted on uShip, you will receive quotes from transportation companies as they compete for your business. Each company has a profile on uShip so you can view their transportation history, customer feedback and insurance policies. You can also ask them any questions you may have to ensure that they are the right fit for your moving needs.

3 Transport & Delivery

The final step is for your furniture to be transported and delivered to its new home. Now that you’ve chosen the best removalist, you’ll need to arrange the location and times for pick up and delivery. If there is a third party involved, be sure to provide those details as well. Make sure you have your payment ready, and if you stumble across any roadblocks along the way, contact us so we can give you a helping hand.

How Much Does it Cost to Move Furniture?

The average price range to deliver furniture locally is A$75 to A$250, while the average cost to move furniture across the country ranges from A$300 to A$600. Naturally, larger deliveries, white glove service, long distances, and other factors can increase the cost. Furniture movers sometimes combine several shipments which helps keep the delivery price low.

Options for Moving Furniture

Depending on how much furniture you’re moving and where the final destination is, you may want to consider if you need a door-to-door service or if you’d rather move it by freight. Door-to-door services are great for short distances, but if you’re moving something across country you may want to opt for a freight service. Putting your furniture on a freight may be a cheaper option, but remember that you’ll need to do the heavy lifting, such as packaging, loading and unloading your furniture yourself.

Preparing Your Furniture for Transport

Make sure you speak to your moving company or freight service about the expectations for packaging your furniture. Different companies may have slightly different requirements or may offer different packaging options. The checklist below is a great way to make sure your furniture is being properly prepared for moving.

  • Furniture is disassembled (including legs to couches and chairs, if possible).
  • Any screws or small parts are in a plastic bag and taped to the furniture.
  • Drawers have been removed.
  • Furniture has been wrapped in bubble wrap or cardboard and corners have been properly protected.
  • Any pillows, cushions or linens have been placed in plastic bags or boxes.
