Moving to Hobart

Considering a Move to Hobart?

For those moving to Hobart will find it is the Australian capital city of the island state of Tasmania. With a population of around 211,656 it is a small city however it has importance as the home port for both Australian and French Antarctic operations.

The city of Hobart is also a hub for Cruise ships during the summer months with up to 40 Cruise ships docking through the year. Other growing industries include the Hobart’s wine industry with vineyards that have developed in countryside areas outside of the city over the last 15 years. When moving to Hobart you will find a number of industries needing skilled workers in many of the key industries.

Places to consider visiting when moving to Hobart include the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, and the Tasman Bridge which is a uniquely important feature of the city.

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