Backloading or Express Backloading basically means that you are sharing space with another person in the removal company's truck or a shipping container. Backloading is also available when a moving truck is returning to its home depot empty from a previous interstate relocation. For example: Truck does an interstate relocation from Melbourne to Sydney, the truck is only half full, so you share the left over space with another person who is also moving from Melbourne to Sydney, now that the truck is empty, a different person that is moving from Sydney to Melbourne can "backload" their belongings into the empty truck on return to Melbourne.
It is suited to interstate and intercity removals and not local suburb home relocations.
Backloading is the least expensive option because you will be sharing space with another persons box's and furniture. You will potentially save money as you only pay for the space you take up in the truck, heading in one direction. This is a perfect option for those who have smaller loads or are on a budget.
A respectable removalist will use an inventory of each customers items in order to prevent belongings getting mixed up. In conjunction with this, it is advised that you clearly label each box and piece of furniture with you name and contact details should a rare mix-up occur.
