Moving to Darwin

Considering a Move to Darwin?

For those moving to Darwin will find it is the Australian capital city of the Northern Territory. With a population of around 127,532 this makes it the smallest of the state capital cities in Australia. Darwin is known for its consistently warm to hot climate throughout the year.

The two largest industry sectors in Darwin are that for mining and tourism. Mining and energy industry production includes mining for gold, zinc, bauxite, manganese and uranium. Energy production is mostly off shore with oil and natural gas extracted from under the Timor Sea. These industries include many work opportunities for those moving to Darwin. The tourist industry is a growing industry with Darwin now becoming more popular with tourists.

Places to consider visiting when moving to Darwin include a number of parks and gardens such as East Point Reserve, Charles Darwin National Park, the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens, Casuarina Coastal Reserve, Knuckey Lagoons Conservation Reserve, Leanyer Recreation Park, the Nightcliff Foreshore, Bicentennial Park and the Jingili Water Gardens.

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