Consider asking the Uber driver for assistance, and of course pay him to park his car and at least $20 for his time.

Traveling with 3 suitcases and 2 cabin bags on your own, it's going to be very difficult. Good luck at finding porter services at your destination airport as well.
I am not concerned about that when getting to my destination, since I will have people to meet me then. It is just that journey between the kerbside and the check in counter is the problem.
Probably a self service trolley if you can find one.

Some airports have recently introduced this new technology. Based on a steel platform, but with wheels for moving, and a handle for pushing these fabulous "Trolleys" can be a real life saver.

There is no porter service as such. One service company does provide complete departure assistance but I'm not sure if it's for international only or if it can be arranged for T2. go to sydneyairportassistance.com Airline staff will not help, as far as I know. Plan B may be a Hughes car transfer instead of an Uber. More expensive, but the drivers are invariably helpful.

ACT Limo executive porters or Hughes
I think Airport Porters faded away when the jet age arrived and wheels were invented for suitcases.

The amount of luggage will fit on 2 standard airport trolleys.That would be my solution. But get the driver to drop you off at Arrivals, as that's where the trolleys are, not at Departures.

@CityRail, you may struggle to find any Airport-provided or Airline-provided porter services, but there are a host of companies that provide kerbside-to-check-in porter services at a price. You can usually book online (just search online for Australian Airport VIP services or Porter Services)

There are still porters at LHR who I must say were very efficient and well worth the 20GBP we paid them to take 4 large suitcases, 2 small suitcases, a folded up buggy and a baby seat to the car.

Out of interest, there are still plenty of airports around the world where a porter service is available. I've seen porter services in all Indian airports that I've been through, LHR as previously suggested, and I've just booked a porter/immigration fast track service at Chiang Mai.
