Need to transport something over a long distance for an affordable price? Backloading is the perfect way to organise pick up and delivery for your items, especially if you need interstate transport. You can get help with one or two appliances or piece of furniture, through to a whole house worth of furniture. Your backloading removalist will help by loading up your items and delivering them at their destination, as part of their travel route and journey.
The best way to find a backloading service near you is on Airtasker. Simply post your task with details on what you want moved and your location/delivery pick up, and you’ll get offers from drivers travelling your route with extra space for your items.
With our transparent ratings and reviews system, you can be confident you can rely on your backloading removalist.
When you book your backloading service through Airtasker, your backloader is covered under our insurance.
Your truck driver will take care in loading the items, as well as protecting them with towels, blankets, and packing foam where needed.
Backloading usually costs between $246-$675 when you book your service through Airtasker. But costs will vary, depending on the distance, number/size of items, and whether your driver needs to go out of their way to pick up and deliver.
Whether you need long-haul, interstate backloading, or something a little more local, your backloader will start by confirming the details. Then they’ll pick up your items, transport them across the distance, and deliver them to your agreed upon location. Here’s how your backloading service will work:
Because backloading involves adding your items to an existing load or planned delivery service, this step is critical to get right. Your backloader will check that the timing and locations match up with their schedule and that they have enough space to accommodate your items. Then they’ll book the space for you and arrange pick up.
Picking up your items, ready for backloading, involves carefully labelling each box or item with your name and destination info. This is important, especially when multiple parties are sharing the same delivery space. Your backloader will use a trolley and/or tail lift to help move any heavy items into the truck. They’ll shuffle things around to make sure that everything fits snugly, as well as using blankets and pillows to cushion items and protect them from bumps.
Your removalist will proceed on their journey to your items’ destination. They may make several stops along the way to pick up and deliver other items, according to their schedule. Once they arrive at your destination, they’ll help unload the items for you (or your recipient) using their trolley and/or tail lift. If you’re not the one receiving the items, they’ll send you a message to let you know they’ve been delivered.
