Australia is the world’s sixth-largest country and is on an island continent. While English is the official language, many other languages are spoken both at home and in the social sphere, and one in four Australians has English as their second language rather than their first. This is due in part to the fact that Australia is an incredibly multicultural country with migrants from some 200 countries.
If you decide to relocate in Australia, take enough time to choose your removal company. This is an important step not to be taken lightly. Set up an appointment with a relocation counselor for an in-house estimate. Make a list of all the objects that require special care (glass, mirror, piece of art, special packaging etc.) Specify to the mover what you will do yourself (dismantling furniture, packing dishes etc.)
To find a carrier or a mover, use the Internet, consult the yellow pages or click on the links below.
Regarding the estimate, several key points are to be considered such as:
• Origin address – where removers will pack and load your belongings
• Destination address in Australia – where removers will unload your belongings
• Volume or weight of your stuff
• Types of transportation (by air, train, truck, ship)
• Nature of the services – terms and conditions – insurance damage
• Prices and payment plans
Read carefully the terms and conditions of your contract to find out more about transportation and handling of precious objects. This statement is particularly important because without it, an estimate cannot be established, which will obviously affect your relocation and your organization!
