3 Men, a truck and a van

Three men, a truck and a van are a rarely requested combination.  We usually recommend this service for moves where the access does not allow for a large truck but there are a lot of items to be moved. 

If you have over 27 cubic metres to move but the height clearance of the loading zone in your new building is low, this service is for you!  If there is a steep sloped driveway as there is in many coastal or hillside properties, you may need a truck for all your items, and a van to ferry them down. 

Using this service, you can ensure all your items will travel in one trip while enabling the team to ferry your items safely using the van.    When the access is really tricky whether it is a low height clearance or if there are any obstructions such as low hanging cables, we can replace the van with a ute at the same rate.

Three men, a van and a truck are necessary when you have a combination of the following circumstances:
You are moving more than 27 cubic metres worth of furniture and household goods (3+ bedroom homes)
AND
You have a low height clearance (lower than 3.4m) or there are access restrictions (low hanging cables, narrow streets, etc).
AND/OR
The access to your property is through a steep ramp/street/driveway.
If you are undecided between 3 men, a truck and a van or 3 men and a large truck, please book an inspection with us.  The supervisor will check the access points at the pick up and delivery addresses and determine the right service for you.

The Cost of Moving Your Home With Three Guys, the truck and the van

Three men, a truck and a van have an hourly rate of $180 Monday to Thursday or $190 Friday to Sunday plus call out.  As this service is usually booked for very specific moves, there is no reliable average price guide.

It often boils down to the type of furniture being moved, the access at both pick up and delivery addresses and the total volume being moved. We have recently used this service for a 3 bedroom house on Tennyson Point and the total price was $2200.

Another job was a full-service packing, moving and unpacking job with 2 packers and 2 removalists in Bondi beach.  Parking was severely limited on the customer’s street so the van and truck had to swap places.  The van ferried boxes after the packers would pack whole rooms and the truck was used to load all the furniture.  The total price for this move was $4600 inclusive of box hire and packing materials.

 If you think you need a truck, a van and 3 men, it would be best to book an inspection with on 1800 001 110 so we can provide you with a fixed price.

According to Canstar’s ratings, the average local move in Sydney costs anywhere from $300 to $3500 with hourly rates of $75 to $300 depending on the type of move (a few items, a whole unit or house).

What is included in the moving costs?

The moving costs include shrink wrapping for mattresses and blanket padding for all other furniture and appliances, disassembly and reassembly of furniture and simple installation of white goods.  We also do not have hidden charges such as for tolls, stairs or fuel so these are already a part of our hourly fees and call out.

How do I keep moving expenses down?

There are many ways you can keep your moving costs down but these are the main ways:

  • Declutter as much as you can before moving day. Give away or sell furniture and household goods that you do not need or want at your new home.
  • Pack well. Everything that is small or medium sized including small kitchen appliances such as toasters, blenders and food processors, lamps, umbrellas, etc should be boxed up.
  • Plan parking and access for the team. Use your car to save a good spot for on street parking, book loading zones and priority lift access if you live in an apartment.
  • Move small items ahead of the move to ensure the removalists have clear passage and are only moving the large items.
