Removals in Australia often cover large areas of ground and need to be highly organised to go smoothly. While our Sydney to Altona removalists are here to do as much as they can, there are a few things you can do to help them out.
We’ll always recommend that you start planning for your move from Sydney to Altona as soon as possible, which includes getting in touch with us in advance. By having the proper amount of time to prepare, we can make your relocation even easier, and we’ll be able to organise any extra services that you need. Of course, last-minute jobs and moves are a part of life, and while we can handle those, we do recommend leaving plenty of time to get things in line.
Packing is one of the biggest parts of an move and often takes longer than people expect. We kindly ask our customers to be packed and ready to go when your Sydney to Altona removalists arrive, otherwise there will be delays to the entire process. If you don’t want to pack, we offer a full packing service that will safeguard your cargo from door to door, handled by experienced members of our team. If you want to take care of the packing yourself, take a look at our moving checklist, which will help you stay organised.
One of the best ways you can help make moving day go smoothly is to make sure that there is ample space for our moving truck to park near your property. If our removalists have to transport your cargo down the street, this will delay things. And, please make sure that all doors, corridors and pathways are free of obstructions so that our removalists can safely load your belongings.
Organising the practicalities also extends to the destination, where once again we will ask that there is a parking space for our truck, and that you team’s path is clear. Another good idea is to have your power and water utilities running and ready to go for your comfort.

There are several reasons why Melbourne is regarded as such a desirable place to live: various public transportation options, low crime rates, and a large number of career opportunities. It also has a fantastic arts and culture scene, top-notch universities, and a laid-back way of life.
The city is famous throughout Australia for its colorful alley culture, which is full of bustling shopping arcades, roving musicians, live music, calm street-side book cafes… and the occasional secret street party!
International students understand the value of having an airport close by, especially when traveling back home or when visiting family and friends. Fortunately, Melbourne’s airport is easily accessible and conveniently located in the city center (around 20-35 minutes each way).
Melbourne is consistently voted Australia’s ‘best student city’ for both local and international students, and it is the world’s third-best student city! Melbourne thereby outperforms in terms of affordability, employer activity, appeal, and student perception.
Many expats, especially those from the United Kingdom, Ireland, China, Italy, and Germany, who make up some of Melbourne’s largest expat populations, dream of relocating to the city. In 2018, about 90,000 people moved to Melbourne, joining the 58 percent of Melbournians who were born overseas.
Melbourne is clearly a well-liked vacation spot. In the InterNations Expat Insider poll, the city is consistently ranked among the best locations to live, and immigration is expected to aid the city’s rapid growth over the next decade.
Expats who speak English will find it quite easy to settle in Melbourne and blend into the local culture. You may easily meet friends, learn about Melbourne’s history and culture, and participate in all of the activities that make it so enjoyable. Finding a job and a place to live should also be easy because most business is performed in English. Similarly, if you are a natural Mandarin or Cantonese speaker who also speaks English, moving to Melbourne is not difficult. The city has a significant Chinese population, and many street signs are written in both English and simplified Chinese characters.
If you want to migrate to Melbourne, you can apply for a variety of visas and work permits, depending on your status and qualifications. If you want to stay in this city for a long time, you’ll most likely need a Skilled Worker Visa or an Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) visa. To be eligible for one of these two visas, you must complete the following requirements:
To be eligible, you must meet all of the requirements for the Australian visa for which you are seeking. To be nominated, you must also meet the requirements set forth by the Victorian government. This could be for a company visa or a skilled worker visa. Finally, you must commit to permanently residing in Melbourne (or the state of Victoria).
Visit the Victoria Government’s official website for further information.
For many expats, working in Melbourne is a dream come true. The city has a flourishing job market that is predicted to grow by about 10% in the future, as well as a thriving start-up sector.
Finding a job in Melbourne isn’t always straightforward, but the rewards are well worth the effort. Working in this city allows you to advance your career while also enjoying the benefits of living in the state capital. Many people will be qualified to work in this city that enjoys Australia’s wonderful weather and lively culture, with chances in professions as diverse as healthcare, construction, and professional services.
Despite the abundance of career prospects, finding work in Australia’s second largest city is not easy. You cannot expect to find work simply by arriving on a tourist visa, nor can you think that your qualifications will instantly make you stand out in a competitive job market.
The average income in Melbourne, like the rest of the globe, differs depending on the industry. It’s vital to keep in mind that the cost of living in Australian cities is very high, so you should weigh your possible living costs against your earning potential before relocating.
The average monthly net pay (after tax) in Melbourne is similar to the Australian average net salary, although this is offset by the fact that the cost of living in Melbourne is greater than in some of the other capital cities.
Working in Melbourne pays roughly $5028.73 per month on average, compared to $4843.42 nationally. Now you must determine how much of your wages you will need to meet the cost of living in a city where living expenditures are deemed not only high in Australia, but also around the world.
Accommodation accounts for the majority of everyone’s budget, including professionals, families, students, and overseas students. The closer you get to the core business district, as in any metropolis, higher the price.
