What is Backloading? Is Interstate Backloading right for you?

Backloading is a term used by nearly every long distance removalist worldwide. The term can be very ambiguous and should be discussed in detail with your desired removalists. Below we outline some examples of how the term can be used in the interstate relocation industry. Firstly, it can mean that a company is delivering to a Town or city and is empty on their return run back to home base, thus enabling them to offer cheaper transport costs as your relocation will cover some of the overheads they will encounter if they were to return empty. The pro to this is that you’ll be offered a cheap removal service, the cons are that you will have to be extremely flexible in regards to timing / uplift and delivery day. This is because a client who has booked their move has the say as to when it will take place, as they have paid the full cost. Due to the increase in nearly all aspects of the transport/ interstate relocation industry, this type of backloading has become somewhat rare, as usually companies will make sure they have return freight arrangements to ensure viability.

The more common use of the term refers to a vehicle being shared with several clients. This method allows for all clients to be aware of the day of uplift, day of delivery and only being charged for the component/volume that they take up in the vehicle. Professional backloading companies should also use an inventory system or boarding system to ensure that loads are not mixed together and clients receive their goods intact and in full. This can be an issue with cheaper companies as inventories do take a great deal more time and with the cost of vehicles and wages, inventories will be the first process to be eliminated to ensure that the job is viable, but also running a high risk of misplaced goods.

This should be checked with your removalist prior to arrangements being made, to ensure that they have the correct procedures in place that all your goods arrive and there is no displacement with other client’s goods or effects.

Sole Occupancy

The term “sole occupancy” refers to you being charged for the full use of the vehicle from point A to point B, with no other clients being on the vehicle. This is a more expensive option, but for larger removals or to ensure timing of your move is met, this may be an option to take into consideration.

We recommend Noosa Van Lines to anyone looking to relocate their household, or anything for that matter. They are a highly professional business who have well trained friendly staff who made our move a relatively simple affair. They are the best movers we have ever used and will call upon them again when required.

Great service (as always) - I have used your company a few times now. Paul and his offsider whose name escapes me I'm afraid, both went the extra mile, and everything arrived in perfect order.

Excellent
Moving interstate is stressful enough however we found the team at Noosa Van Lines took away one of the major stresses for us - moving our furniture! From the moment I picked up the phone to enquire about their services to the delivery of our furniture, everything went very smoothly. The guys that came to pick up our furniture were awesome. They were hilarious yet professional, always taking care of our things (even our things that had seen better days still got the same care as our more expensive items). Delivery was very easy and done so quickly! We had a cast of guys who were great but both Grant and Brendan were there for pick up and delivery and were amazing! Thank you to everyone at Noosa Van Lines, we will absolutely use your services again!
Great communication and service. Everything went smoothly on both days with the pick up and then the drop off. Would highly recommend and we will be using Noosa Van Lines again for part 2 of our move. Thanks to Mark for prompt email responses when arranging the quotes and day and Andy for the move, who communicated with us during the day as to what time he would be arriving. Very professional.
Noosa Van Lines were very professional and the boys that helped us all were pleasant and had a 'can do' attitude - nothing was too much trouble. It really helped us through a very stressful time!
