If you are considering moving house, we imagine removal costs are at the forefront of your concerns. That’s why Sirelo is here to help you with a breakdown of moving house costs in Australia. Read on for information on removalist prices, as well as money saving tips and tricks!
With a move on the horizon, the question “how much do home removals cost?” has likely been on your mind, and we’re not surprised. In the interest of getting to the crux of the issue, average costs of removals for a 3-bedroom house can range from $1,500 to $2,200 for a move in the same state, interstate removals costs are a whole other level. That’s a fair amount of moolah!
You might be left wondering how removal costs seem to fall over such a large range. Fortunately for you, we took the time to break down where some of the costs come from.
Remember! 💡 You may not need all the services mentioned and there may be some factors, which we cover below, that push your costs outside of our estimated removal costs range.
|Basic Removal Services||$800-$1,050|
|Disassembly & Reassembly||$100-$200|
|Storage (1 Month)||$100-$150|
Please note: these figures are based on the average moving cost across Australia. You’ll find that removal costs in Sydney, Brisbane, and other large cities will be higher.

As we already mentioned, and as you can see from the table, the household size has a sizeable effect on removal costs. While the owner of an average 3-bedroom house will own a volume of around 28m3 of belongings, you might have more or even less.
