What Is Interstate Backloading And Is It Right For You?

Interstate backloading is a term that sometimes comes up in the furniture removal space. But what exactly is it and is it right for you? If you’ve ever wondered what interstate backloading is and if it’s suitable for your needs, read on to find out more.


What Exactly Is Interstate Backloading?

Interstate backloading is an alternative way to move your furniture and personal effects interstate. Depending on the type of service being offered by a professional removalist, backloading can either mean one of two scenarios:

  • Space sharing – Paying for spare space to move your belongings alongside other people’s items in a partly filled moving truck. Usually the truck is returning home from a completed job. In this case, you will be paying a partial cost relative to how much space you require on the backload.

 

  • Sole occupancy – Filling a moving truck with only your belongings on its return journey home from a completed job. Basically you will be charged for the full use of the vehicle from one location point to another, but it will be at a cheaper cost compared to a regular move.

 


How Does Interstate Backloading Work?

Interstate backloading is a fairly straightforward process no matter whether or not you choose to move your belongings by sharing space with others or being the sole occupant of a returning truck. A quick overview of the process behind interstate backloading is bellow:

Shared backloading

  1. The moving company will get in touch to advise of when a truck is passing through
  2. Start packing your items or hire a professional to help get the packing done faster
  3. Your belongings will be loaded onto the back of the empty truck alongside other people’s belongings
  4. Your belongings will then be transported safely to their destination


Sole occupancy

  1. The moving company will get in touch to advise of when a truck is passing through
  2. Start packing your items or hire a professional to help get the packing done faster
  3. Only your belongings will be loaded onto the back of the empty truck
  4. Your belongings will then be transported safely to their destination

 


Who is Interstate Backloading Ideal For?

While there are many great reasons to book an interstate backloading service, it certainly isn’t for everyone. Below are some ideal scenarios of people who would benefit the most from an interstate backloading service:

  • People looking to save on moving costs
  • People who don’t have a lot of items to move
  • People who can have flexibility when it comes to moving dates and times
  • People who don’t mind moving their belongings in the same truck along with other people’s items

 


When Is A Backloading Service Not Suitable?

As mentioned earlier, backloading isn’t for everyone. Some situations where backloading isn’t the most suitable option include: 

  • When you don’t have a lot of flexibility with your moving date and time
  • When you have a lot of items to move
  • When you would rather not share moving space with others (in this case, you might want to consider the option of a sole occupancy interstate backload instead)
