Our Fees

We understand that every move is different and your needs will vary, depending on the size of the home, accumulated items, family involvement and how much or how little you are able to do. This is especially true if you're a senior. The Moving Planners charge an hourly rate for managing your move and packages start from as low as $450.


Complimentary meeting in

your home

The Moving Planners only charge for the hours we work and do not receive any commissions, fees or kickbacks from service providers.


We provide great value for money, generating efficiencies by acting as a single point of contact for all of your moving jobs and relieving you of the stress that comes with moving.


We give you peace of mind that service providers and tradespeople that we source are reasonably priced and most importantly, trustworthy.


We are confident that we can add significant value and minimise the stress of your move.

Once you've contacted us:


We'll arrange to meet with you in your home to discuss your requirements. During this free one hour meeting, we'll  introduce ourselves and explain how we can help with your move.


In order to provide a cost estimate, we'll get to know you, understand your current and future home situation, talk through your  move time line and understand any sensitivities.


We'll walk you through our detailed services list, allowing you to decide what you need us to manage. You can choose either a bundle of services or individual tasks.


After our meeting, we'll prepare a detailed estimate, setting out the number of hours we believe will be necessary to fulfill your requirements.


On acceptance of this estimate and payment of the required deposit, we'll prepare a plan for the move, providing you with all the details of your move. 


Once work has commenced, we'll keep you updated regularly on our progress and hours. This allows you to be in control and have some flexibility on the scope of work. 


If we need to organise external service providers and tradespeople, we'll assist by providing some options and allowing you to choose your preferred supplier.

Value for money compared with your total moving costs *

When you consider all of the other costs of moving, buying and selling, our costs are a small percentage of the total. We've put together some indicative figures below, which show that even if you choose a mid range service, the cost of engaging The Moving Planners is approximately 8% of your total costs of moving. That's a small price to pay for everything we do and the weight that is taken off your shoulders.
