Moving to Canberra

Considering a Move to Canberra?

For those moving to Canberra will find it is the Australian capital. However with a population of around 367,752 Canberra is not the largest city in Australia. The city of Canberra has significant areas of natural vegetation that have given Canberra the title of the bush capital and make it a very pleasant city.

Camberra is the seat of the government of Australia, and is the location of Parliament House, the High Court and numerous government departments and agencies. Employment levels are the highest in Australia and with so many government departments in the city these create many job opportunities for those moving to Canberra.

Places to consider visiting when moving to Canberra include the National Library of Australia, which holds every book published in Australia, the Canberra Museum and Gallery and the National Gallery of Australia. Other tourist places to visit include the Black Mountain communications tower.

Abels Moving Services can assist you when moving to Canberra from the UK. We have been providing professional and discrete packing and international removal services for discerning families and professionals relocating and moving to Canberra in Australia for over 50 years.

Abels Moving Services advises that Export Packing is a fundamental requirement for all your items and possessions when moving to Canberra. Export Packing is a way of protecting items when in transit. It utilises either a 6 ply paper blanket that has a wax inner and a water resistant outer or tough bubble blanket that has a soft cloth inner and robust outer to ensure corners are not exposed. Certain items will need to be card covered, put into a carton or an additional layer of the above wrap to add extra protection for items such as polished furniture, antiques, delicate legs, mirror and glass fronted units.

The level of protection that is needed when moving items for example by road is less stringent but for moving your items travelling thousands of miles in either 20ft Containers or 40ft Containers on their sea journey to Canberra then they will need additional Export Packing protection. Please remember that the goods will be “handled” many times including wrapping, loading the container, road journey to the port, container hoist removes and stacks, container hoist moves from the stack to the loading area near the vessel, loading the vessel crane gantry, sea journey and then the same in reverse. So the protection is paramount in ensuring the contents longevity when moving to Canberra.
