Move to Australia

Now that your paperwork is in progress, it’s time for start thinking about how to move to Australia.  You can never be too prepared for this as although it’s incredibly exciting, there’s a lot to think about.  In this section we explain the move process, the practicalities and the essentials of moving your life halfway across the world.

What to take

Relocating means a lot of new and exciting things, but mostly it’s about your possessions. Depending on the size of your home and family you’ll probably want to take everything with you, but how?  There’s no way you can fit your home on a plane!

Before you start to think about using a relocation company, the first thing you’ll need to think about is what to take.  You could start by making a list of the things that are most important to take with you, and as with any house move, clearing out items that are no longer needed would help start the process.  It’s worth thinking about what items you could sell at a boot sale or put on eBay to help raise some additional income.

Do try to remember that if you wanted to you could just start again, which would be the most straightforward way.  Australia has many well-known department stores and you could easily furnish your house from top to bottom.

What you have to do is weigh up the cost of shipping verses buying new.  Some items are worth taking, purely just down to cost but there could be items that would be cheaper to replace on arrival.
