how do you get Interstate shipping quotes

Recommended Posts

Interstate shipping

does anyone now how you go about shipping from one state to another in australia !

surely it can be put into a container and moved from one state to another ! even on a train.

we are in melbourne at the moment and have only been here 7 months so nothing

major to box up again half of which is not unpacked anyway and still have all the boxes

other than car which we might drive IF we decided to move to perth how much it would be cant be as bad as shipping 1/2 way around the world !!!!

i have googled a few but they need itinerarys !! to get a quote

any ideas guys

many thanks carole

I have previously moved from Perth to Brisbane and back again, whilst my parents recently moved from Perth to North Queensland. Each time we have found that Allied Pickfords was the best quote and their service was excellent. You should be able to find out the info on their website.

It cost us almost $10k to move from Adelaide to Brissy, mind you we had 2 20ft containers and 2 cars. We had items still in boxes that hadnt been unpacked but they wont allow that, they literally repack them - as you wont be covered by their insurance if they havent packed them.

Hi Carole

 

I am actually in the process of getting quotes myself - we are in North Brissie and are moving to Emerald (Central Highlands )QLD.

We don't have a huge amount of stuff - just the normal items like bed, lounge suite, fridge/freezer, washing machine etc etc. I have googled loads of companies and have completed the itenaries. The prices really do seem to vary - the best I have had so far is $1450 incl GST and the most $3000!!!

 

Once I have made a decision - I'll let you know!

 

Kind regards
