When you move to a new city there is a lot you’ll need to think about. Moving to Canberra is a big step, so it’s a good idea to talk to your removalists before you go. They’ll be able to run you through the process and make sure you’re prepared for your move. If you’re not sure where to start, here are some great questions to ask your removalists in Canberra.

Planning your move to Canberra? Let our movers Canberra help you!

1. Does Canberra have toll roads?

When you move to a new city it’s good to know where you’ll need to spend money as you drive. In Canberra, you will find that there are no toll ways or roads that need E-Toll or electronic tags. This will make your travels in Canberra much more affordable.

2. What if my new Canberra home isn’t ready to move into yet?

3. What is public transport like in Canberra?

You will find public transport in Canberra is easy to use and very efficient.

  • The main form of public transport here is the bus service, which runs all around Canberra.
  • Canberra will soon be introducing a light rail system, which will run every six minutes during peak times, with 13 stops from the City to Gungahlin.

You will also find there are train services if you want to travel further to Melbourne or Sydney.

4. Do I need to be present when the removalists are in my home?

Throughout the uplift and delivery processes, you or a representative over the age of 18 will need to be present. This is to make sure that everything is done correctly and nothing is forgotten. It’s also useful to be there when the removalists are dropping off your goods as you can show them where you want certain boxes to go. Make sure you arrive early to let the removalists in so they don’t waste valuable time waiting around.

5. What’s the easiest way to get to the Canberra airport?

The Canberra airport is close to the CBD and is easy to get to. You can get here using public transport, by driving, or by catching a taxi or rideshare service. The airport is only 7.2km from the Canberra CBD so it shouldn’t be hard to get to and from the airport during your travels.

6. How are you going to transport my belongings?
