How Can You Get Your Stuff Moved Across The Country On A Budget?

If you've been finding it difficult to make ends meet in your current situation, then you may have decided to move across the country to take advantage of some better opportunities. You don't really have a lot of money to play with and need to be cost-effective as you schedule this move, but you've still got quite a lot of stuff to transfer. What options do you have when working with professional moving services?

Available Options

The good news is that a full-service removalist can offer you options. They'll be able to deliver all of your belongings to the remote destination safely and securely, but how this is done is up to you. You may be able to take advantage of a service known as backloading, which can help you to remain within your budget while achieving the same outcome.


These shipping companies work with a variety of different customers, all of whom have different objectives and a variety of different belongings. One person may have enough to fill up a moving truck completely while another may not, and because it is best to maximise the use of space, these companies may offer a backload. This will allow them to move your possessions along with somebody else's to make the most of the trip. As you will be sharing the load with another person, you can split the cost, and this is what makes backloading so attractive.


To take advantage of this opportunity, you will need to have some flexibility with regard to your timing. This will allow the company to fit in your load with the other party or parties so that everyone gets to their destination within a reasonable amount of time.

Careful Packing

You will need to be especially careful as you pack all your possessions. They will need to be safe and secure and well-identified so that they can be kept together during the move. This will ensure that there is no confusion at the destination and that you are reunited with all your possessions.

Planning the Move

Once you know your schedule, have sized up your total load and have a good idea of your budget, get in touch with a removal expert. Tell them that you would like to consider shipping your possessions as a backload and they will be able to quote you accordingly. They will then help you to work on the timing so that you can get to your destination, set up your home and take full advantage of your new start.

About Me

Cross Country Moving and Storage

Hello, my name is Denis. I grew up in a suburb of Melbourne and lived there all my life. I went to school and college there and got a job at a local bank. I was very happy and I had no plans to leave the city. However, one day I met a beautiful woman. We instantly clicked and within 6 months we were married. The only problem is that she lived in Perth on the other side of the country. I decided to move to be with her, but I had no idea how to transport and store all my stuff. I got in touch with a moving and storage company. They were great and helped me to organised everything. I decided to start a blog to advise others about moving their things across the country.
