One of the greatest concerns for those planning to move out of the US and into Australia is the overall cost of the relocation. Believe it or not, one of the best ways to avoid overspending during this time is by hiring a professional international moving company for help. Since they already have every piece of equipment, tool, material, technology and any other items needed to fulfill an overseas move, there’s no reason not to hire them. Moving services will help prevent you from having to go out and purchase or rent all the items needed to conduct a move, ultimately saving you money.

The honest cost of an international move cannot be determined right away. Most movers will come to your home to perform an evaluation before giving you an exact cost for moving services. The total cost of what you must pay for their assistance is determined by several things. From the moving services you choose to purchase to the current costs of fuel and the weight of your belongings, there is a lot that is considered before a true price for moving services can be handed out. As you research the different overseas moving companies available to you, you’ll see that many of them offer online calculators and over the phone quotes to give you an idea of what your total moving service costs may be.

The Average Cost of Moving 9,000 Miles Away

Although you can’t truly decipher how much it will cost you to move to Australia right away. It’s been said that the average move will cost around $0.50-$0.70 per pound of your belongings. Of course the cost of transportation and other factors will affect the price you pay as well, but you can assume that for one person to move to the nation from the US it will cost around $15,000, give or take.

The things that are considered before an estimate is given to you include the following…

  • Current fuel costs
  • The weight of your things
  • Time and labor costs
  • The cost for materials and supplies
  • Immigration costs
  • Import taxes and fees
  • The distance between both locations
  • The time of year you decide to relocate

The weight of your belongings is usually calculated after all your stuff is loaded onto the truck. Before the truck arrives to your home, it is weighed. It is then weighed again once everything is loaded. To get the net weight which is the exact weight of your household possessions, the movers will subtract the weight of the truck from the weight of the truck after it is loaded.

Once the loading process of your stuff begins, there are things that might come up that could increase your total moving costs. This may include the fact that the movers needed extra helping hands, another truck, special equipment, or packaging supplies to properly pack anything that was packed poorly or not packed at all. Any changes made to your quote will be clarified by the movers. They should have the ability to explain what the upcharges are for before you go ahead and pay them.

Satisfied Customers

“Most of the time people take the time to write a complaint letter. I am very happy with your service so far so I thought I would write and tell you. In today's world where mediocre service is the norm your company has proved your commitment to customer service is far above that of your competitors. I have not received my car yet but I felt compelled to write this email and commend A-1 Autotransport for the job well done thus far. Here are some points I would like to make. Your dispatcher Marie Ferguson upgraded my cars transportation, at no extra cost, to an enclosed transporter. My car is a rare SS Camaro Convertible with only 4,000 miles and is perfect in every way. I can't tell you how much I appreciate her concern for my cars safety. When the seller of the car was a little on the uncooperative side your agents offered to pick the car up where it was at the sellers residence. Again at no extra cost to me. The seller of the car called me after the car was picked up and mentioned how professional the driver was and how he moved cars off the transporter to put my car in the best location for it's long ride to Oregon. When I heard that I felt reassured I had chosen the right company to move my car. The system you have to track the progress is really fun. It took me a little while to figure it out but I had a blast watching the progress. Your driver didn't waste any time. The car was picked up in Ft Lauderdale Florida on Tuesday evening and was in Watsonville California Saturday afternoon. Great Job! I thought I might hear from you Sunday to arrange pick up of my car, most likely I hear from you Monday morning. Thank you again for all you folks have done for me. I would be happy to recommend your service to anyone who asks. Best Regards, Brian Hewgill”

“There aren’t many regulations in the auto shipping business, making it quite chaotic. Scams are unfortunately too frequent from what I’ve heard. I had to get my Porsche to Maryland, and the quotes I found ranged between $600 and $800. However, doing some research, most companies I found had mixed reviews. Some reviews were downright terrible. A1 Auto Transport was the exception, and it was easy to see why. From the very first call, Joe explained in detail everything I needed to know, how to stay in touch with his driver, and encouraged me to call me anytime I needed something. My car was delivered in less than a week. The price was the one we agreed on in the beginning, no extra charges midway. I requested they transport it in a covered trailer, so it would be safe from the elements. It was a bit more expensive but worth keeping my car safe. I am very happy with the results and would recommend A1 Auto Transport to everyone!”

“I’m happy to say A1 Auto Transport did its job and moved my car successfully. I needed a transport company to get it to Oklahoma, and they pulled through. It’s real easy to get a hold of them. You can either call or use their online form to request a quote. I chose to call since it’s more personal, and you can get a better feel of the person over the phone. Joe eased any worries I might have had and answered my questions with confidence. This let me know I was dealing with someone with experience. The quote was reasonable, so I asked for their services. A truck arrived that afternoon, and my car was delivered a week later. It was originally scheduled to arrive between 8-9 days, so I was happy it arrived even sooner. A1 Auto Transport exceeds at customer service. It’s one of the easiest to work with companies I’ve met. Great work, great services, and great people!”

“Considering some of the alternatives out there, I can safely say A1 Auto Transport is one of the best. I talked to several companies. Around 30 got back to me with such insistence, I had to block some of their numbers. It was only when I took initiative and called A1 that things finally turned for the better. Joe’s advice was the best, an extremely pleasant man. I received a text or a call once a day, while my car was being transported, notifying me of its location and status. The truck arrived on time, both at the pickup and the drop off points. When I checked it in Nevada, the car was as I left it, so I’m very happy with the service.”

“Too bad there isn’t a star rating on this site, because I would give it 5 stars with no hesitation. I and my family had to move to New Jersey due to my job relocation. We first tried a broker for our car, at the recommendation of the agent in charge of our move. The company had problems, and we should have done our research better. The truck arrived on time, but it never got to its destination. We later learned it was stuck in a Los Angeles, California lot. We called, but instead of answering our questions, they just hung up. We were already in New Jersey, with no way of going back at this point. Joe guided us through this situation and got our car unstuck. We managed to transfer its transport to his company. He got a truck to pass by the lot and pick it up. They were at our doorsteps a few days later. The car was a bit dirty from sitting around for so long, but in great shape otherwise. We’re really happy with the service. I and my family couldn’t recommend A1 Auto Transport more. Thanks Joe!”
