As mentioned above most removal costs come down to the amount of time taken to complete the move, so long-distance moves will cost quite a bit more than local ones. However, there are ways of saving money on long-distance removals. 

Share load furniture removal options allow you to pay for one-way removal as you only pay for the space you are taking up in the truck. The truck will be used by multiple people going to the same destination, so the cost will be split between you and the other clients on the truck. This is a great money-saving option for those moving far away. 

Moving long distances can take a toll on your possessions, so removal companies can provide you with the necessary moving supplies such as moving boxes, bubble wrap, buff tape, and other packaging material to safeguard your move. If you choose to get the removal company to pack your possessions, then they can ensure that your belongings are packed professionally and safely.

What about moving long distance?

Bargain on about R1750 or R1950 and up to move a 2 bedroom flat of about 50 square metres within the same city/town. Note: Ease of access and how much furniture impacts the final price.

If you want to work out how much it will cost for your removal service, then you will need to start by looking at the average costs. Local removal services can start from as little as R1000. If you are moving from one city to another then it will be closer to R3000 to R6000. 

The average cost for movers by the hour is around R1000 to R2000. If you are moving locally and doing all the packing yourself then it will probably only take you around two hours, so overall the cost would be from R2000 to R4000. If you are moving from one city to another then it will take longer, so factor in the amount of time it will take you to get a more accurate price. See: How much should you pay a mover?
