Moving Cities for Work

Article Image

A promotion or new job is always exciting, and even more so when it means moving to a new city! Whether you're relocating to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra or Darwin there are a few things to consider before you make the big shift.

If you're moving an entire office or business, see this article.

Location, location, location

Do some research into different areas of your new city to see which suburbs are right for you. If you're working in the CBD, you'll probably want to check out the inner suburbs to avoid a lengthy commute.

Does your new city have a good public transport system? Living near a train station or bus line will avoid getting stuck in traffic twice a day.
If you've got a family, carefully research schools and recreational facilities in the area. There's no point in living close to the office if you have to drive for half an hour to find a decent playground for the kids.

Urban planning

Good planning is at the heart of any smooth city move. Talk to your employer about moving assistance or allowances. This can make the transition a lot easier. Compare quotes on city movers as early as possible to make sure you get the best deal.
Organise household connection transfers well in advance to make sure you don't move into a freezing, dark, waterless box. Make an inventory of everything that's coming with you, and ensure all boxes are clearly labelled and ordered. Book a hotel or other accommodation during the move; Chances are the house won't be fully liveable for a few days.
