Moving house can be a daunting prospect for many people, because of the sheer number of tasks it involves. From purchasing packing materials, to finding the right help and hiring transport to move your belongings, house moving feels like a major logistics operation with many moving parts. Many people attempt DIY moves because they believe that hiring a Brisbane removalist is expensive, however, Scotty’s The Movers believes that the right moving company is more than worth it. So, how much does it really cost to hire a professional mover Brisbane-wide? Read on to find out.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Hiring a Moving Company

While moving companies vary slightly in the way they price a house moving service, they all take certain factors into account when creating a quote.

Size of the House

The size of your house is the first factor that a moving company will consider. Apartments, especially single bedroom or studio apartments will have less items to move than two bedroom apartments or three bedroom homes.

Time and Labour

While the size of the house does provide an indication of the scope of the job, time and labour are the most important factors. Some moving companies price their services according to the number of hours required to complete the job. Whether it involves packing, transport or unloading, the time required plays a factor. Labour is also important to understanding how much you are likely to pay. If the house has a lot of goods to pack and load, you may have to pay more than the average rate.


Ease of access to the house is important for moving companies since it affects the time and labour that a job involves. Your moving company may add an extra charge if vehicle parking is far away from the house or apartment. The distance the goods must be carried before they are unloaded increases the time and labour required to complete the job.
