Moving to a new city can be both exciting and daunting at the same time, and with these conflicting emotions come challenges. Being well prepared and knowing what to expect from your new city, how to prepare and organise your relocation tasks, and how to research and choose a community that will meet all of your needs are just a few of the challenges you will face.
You will need to find a new home, budget for your move, source an efficient way to transport your belongings to your new location, take care of the paperwork, pack your belongings, and complete dozens of other moving tasks before the big day arrives. With so many practical considerations your move can start to feel overwhelming and time consuming.
The experienced team at International Consultants Centre (ICC) can help you and your family with all aspects of your relocation. From arranging removalists to choosing a home and school in your new location. Our relocation consultants are here to minimise the stress and ensure your move is as smooth as possible.
Some of the most common questions about moving to a new city include:
Understanding the rental housing market in my new city –
What can I get with my budget? Is there much available in the market? How long will it take me to secure a home?
Understanding the suburb/community choices –
Which areas will suit my lifestyle? Which areas have the type of housing I am looking for? Where can I find the best schools for my kids? Which areas have low crime?
Rental process in my new city –
How can I set up appointments to view properties ahead of the crowds? What is the process to apply for a home? Once my application has been accepted what are the start-up fees?
Relocation schedule – How will I find time tocoordinate all the relocation activities?
Pack and uplift of household goods–
Which company should I use? How many quotes should I get? When should I ask for the pack and uplift? What if I need storage?
Settling into your new community –
Where is the nearest doctor and dentist? Is there a swimming pool nearby? Which day should I put my rubbish bins out?
