Would you like to know how long your personal goods will be in transit for before they arrive at your new home? Wouldn’t it make life so much easier to plan ahead of time! Well lucky you can, with the help of Wridgways. It is important to note that time frames for household deliveries around Australia depend largely on where your goods are being moved from and to and how much you plan to take with you.
Once you have determined what you’re taking, making the decision of whether to have the sole occupancy of a 20ft or 40ft container, or whether you would prefer to share a container with other peoples goods going to the same destination is so much easier! Both options have their advantages; sole occupancy containers are sent to your new destination straight away so you will have much a shorter transit time from uplift to delivery. Shared containers are great if you don’t require the full container and would like to save some money by combining with other peoples items headed for the same location. Sharing a container can have a longer transit time for this reason as the other consignments may not be ready to be sent on the same day.
Here’s Our Guide to Transit Times for Sole Occupancy Containers:
- Transit times between Capital Cities and their surrounds, so for example Melbourne to Brisbane and Perth to Adelaide we advise generally allowing between 5 and 7 business days to receive your goods.
- Household goods headed to regional areas such as Cairns, Alice Springs and Kalgoorlie we suggest allowing anywhere between 7 to 15 business days depending on the origin and delivery destinations.
Evaluating where in Australia to make your next home? Think no further! Make it Geraldton, Western Australia.
Geraldton has long been the home of Australians seeking beautiful warm weather in a beach-side town rich with history, and it’s easy to see why it has a population of more than 35,000 people. From the much-loved windsurfing haven of Coronation Beach to the Batavia Shipwreck off the coast of Geraldton, there is plenty to do and explore for people of all ages. There’s even a miniature railway that everyone in the family can enjoy! Geraldton is an important service and logistics hub, with a large involvement in the fishing, mining, wheat, sheep and tourism industries. Located just 400km north of Perth, it’s easily accessed by air via Geraldton Airport or road. A beach lifestyle accompanied by plenty of extracurricular activities and sights to see; what more could you ask for?

The best places to hang out?
There are plenty of seaside cafés and restaurants along the esplanade that make for a picturesque dining experience, as well as new barbeque facilities right along the water for social get-togethers. For a day trip it’s impossible to go past Waminda Wildlife Sanctuary or the Ellendale Pool; a waterhole located just 45km south east of Geraldton where you can stop for a picnic or even camp overnight. Learn about Geraldton’s vast history by visiting the HMAS Sydney II Memorial or the Western Australian Museum – Geraldton. You won’t leave disappointed or empty handed with all of the beautiful photo opportunities!
The most sought after locations
The most popular suburbs within Geraldton tend to be those within a fairly close proximity to the beach such as Beresford, Beachlands, Mahomets Flats, Tarcoola Beach and Wandina. All of these suburbs are conveniently located within a 10 minute drive of the main area of town so driving for a long time between town and home is never an issue!
