Although we would like to cover as large as area as possible, the practicalities of providing mobile massage in Sydney means that we do have to limit what suburbs we do and do not visit. Our company name, Inner west mobile massage, gives a good indication of our service area.
However, the definition of what is and what is not the Inner West is a matter of conjecture. For our purposes we define the area covering from the city as far West as Homebush, south as far as Bexley, mainly on the south side of the Parramatta River (although we will go to suburbs such as Gladesville and Hunters Hill).
A map of our service area is shown below.

It should be noted that not all therapists will be available for all suburbs which are at the boundary of the area that we cover. If you live in a particular suburb and want a specific therapist then we will endeavour to make that happen but, because of distance and logistics, we cannot guarantee this.
We are often asked to provide service outside of our area. It may seem plausible that if we go to suburb “X” then we will go to the next suburb “Y” as it will only be another “5 minutes”, particularly if we add on a small travel surcharge say of $10 for the extra time/cost for the therapist.
Unfortunately the issue of travel surcharge is not as straightforward as adding the travel time from “X” to “Y”.
Our fee is based on an average travel cost for providing massages in the area we service. As it is impractical to vary the rate on a suburb by suburb basis then the upshot is that some suburbs are easier and cheaper for a therapist to get to, others are longer and effectively more expensive.
These are not actual figures but just shown for demonstration purposes. If our average cost of travel to an appointment is $30 then an “easy” location may only cost a therapist $10 in travel costs and time whereas suburb “X” on the fringe effectively costs $50. Going to suburb “Y” may have a true travel cost of $60.
So whilst we only charge a travel fee of $30 to go to “X” as part of our service area, we would need to charge $60 to go to “Y”. As this difference $30 for neighbouring suburbs may appear to be excessive, then, as a business we have taken the decision it is easier not to go outside of our area rather than have to try to justify a large surcharge for travel.
Having said that then if you do live outside of our area then by all means feel free to give us a call as individual therapists may be available for particular suburbs depending on their own circumstances (for example if they live at the fringe of our area then for them travelling a little outside is an option). It is just that we as a business do not guarantee that we can provide a suitable therapist.
