What is Backloading?

Lets try to answer this for you so you can make an informed decision you Back Loads or better known as Backloading.

Backloading is a word often used throughout the Furniture Removals Industry and would imply that a truck with some available space could fill it by offering that empty space as a Back load. As the space would have remained empty without the Backload so its often given at a cheaper rate and will save you money. In other words, with Backloading you only pay for the space your furniture takes up on the truck. One thing to keep in minds is that Backloading is that delivery dates can only be given as an estimate as the truck will have to do other deliveries as well as yours.

Some people worry about their furniture on the truck with others goods however it is a safe option. As all furniture will be wrapped in blankets and sectioned off the load will not be mixed up so there is no need for concern however if you are worried and want to take out Moving Insurance then that is an option open to you.


Nearly all Removal Companies are Backloading these days as the rising cost of fuel and labour encourages business to work smarter and utilise their trucks to the highest capacity. If you would like to have a whole truck for your move only then that can be arranged and quoted for but would cost more than a Backload. Options for obtaining a quote for a small Back load Quote

Hello. We need to move to Brisbane, but will not be taking furniture. I have a lot of buckets of fabrics, books and personal things. Can you give us a ball park figure for a backload costing?
And my car would need to go somehow.
