Our Pricing

Transparent pricing that makes sense and provides our customers with the value they deserve.

Last updated 22 January 2024

Translocal has two different rates. One for pickup, transport and delivery services and another for home and office removals services.

 

PICKUP, TRANSPORT & DELIVERY

For pickup, transport and delivery services we charge $40 per hour if it’s a one man job or $70 per hour if it’s a two man job (depending obviously on whether the load requires two men to lift and handle) PLUS $1.80 per Km.

With the Km rate, if the job starts and/or finishes within the greater Melton area we only charge from the pickup address to the delivery address. If the job is outside Melton then we charge the distance from pickup to delivery and from our base in Melton to the pickup address or from the delivery address back to our base in Melton whichever is shorter.

With the hourly rate we charge a minimum of 1 hour. Jobs that take longer than 1 hour are charged in 15 minute blocks rounded up to the nearest 15 minutes. The clock starts from arrival at the pickup address and goes until unloaded, packed up and ready to be paid at the delivery address.

Km rate is calculated according to Google Maps suggested route from pick up address to delivery address. We do it this way rather than on actual Km travelled so we can quote in advance.

 

HOME OR OFFICE REMOVALS

For home or office removals we charge $120 per hour PLUS $1.80 per Km. (This rate pays for 2 men).

As with pickup, transport and delivery services, with the Km rate, if the job starts and/or finishes within the greater Melton area we only charge from the pickup address to the delivery address. If the job is outside Melton then we charge the distance from pickup to delivery and from our base in Melton to the pickup address or from the delivery address back to our base in Melton whichever is shorter.

With the hourly rate we charge a minimum of 1 hour. Jobs that take longer than 1 hour are charged in 15 minute blocks rounded up to the nearest 15 minutes. The clock starts from arrival at the pickup address and goes until unloaded, packed up and ready to be paid at the delivery address.

 

EXTRAS

“There are no hidden charges”. The only extras we may charge for are incidental costs and disbursements such as tolls, ferry fares and overnight accomodation.

 

WHY 2 RATES?

Because deliveries is very different work to removals. With one the loading and unloading time is minimal and you spend most of the job on the road. With the other you spend most of your time loading and unloading. The difference in the rates reflects the difference in the type of work and how the money is earned.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use Translocal and not just hire a trailer or a ute?

Because for shorter more local jobs we are usually less expensive than trailer or ute hire but even when we are not, you don't have the hassle of picking up and returning the trailer or ute. Plus you have our help to get the job done.

Do you only operate in Melton or do you service other areas?

We used to say that a job would need to start in, end in or pass through Melton but we will go outside our operating area if the customer is prepared to pay a little extra to cover the dead (unpaid) miles we would need to travel. The best way to find out is ask.

If I buy an item say, in the Facebook marketplace and hire Translocal to deliver it, can I get you to pay for the item and fix you up when you deliver?

Not yet! For the moment the purchase of the item is between you and the seller, we only deal with delivery. But we might have something in the pipeline. Watch this space.

What payment methods do you have?

Our drivers are equipped with mobile EFTPOS terminals which means you can pay using your credit or debit card or even with your mobile phone if you use Apple Pay or Google Pay. We also have the ability to send you an invoice by email which you can pay securely online from the comfort of your own computer or smart phone and of course we also accept cash.
