Why move to Canberra?
Riverside and ocean escapes
Canberra can heat up in summer, and there are plenty of rivers and freshwater swimming holes to cool off in the ACT. Murrumbidgee River, Cotters Bend Casuarina Sands are just a few. Ocean-loving Canberrans head to the nearby NSW south coast to areas like Batemans Bay in summer.
Being a smaller city with just under 400,000 people in 2016, Canberra offers a sense of community that other largely populated cities can’t. The people are vibrant and friendly. Introduce yourself at the local, join a social group or consider share house living to meet new people.
Out and about
Canberra’s Parliamentary Zone offers free museums and galleries. Hang out spots and hidden gems in coffee shops, bars, eateries and shops line Lonsdale Street. Traffic and parking are a breeze, taking about 30 minutes to get from one side of the city to the other – even in peak hour.
Jobs and growth
While Canberra is known as the political capital and many people do work for the public service, other vital industries where you can find employment are building, construction and trades, education, tourism and hospitality, and health services.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do WridgWays use accredited Canberra removalists?
At WridgWays, we only employ Canberra removalists who are accredited by the Australian Furniture Removers Association (AFRA). Not all moving companies in Australia are required to be accredited by AFRA, but it’s important to have.
Our Canberra removalists have the necessary equipment, vehicles, premises, and training required to carry out local removals safely and efficiently. All AFRA accredited Canberra removalists are informed of the necessary procedures involved with packing and transporting belongings.
How will you protect my mattresses and furniture during my move?
No matter how far you’re moving, it is always important to protect your furniture during transit. Our Canberra removalists will provide specialised protective materials to ensure your goods and furniture are protected throughout your move, such as furniture pads, blankets, and export wrapping.
We also use VIP plastic covers to protect any fabric furniture form becoming soiled, and blankets made from breathable fabric to prevent your leather furniture from sweating. To protect electronic equipment such as televisions or speakers, our Adelaide removalists will use specially-designed boxes to safely transport and store your belongings.
If you are packing your own belongings, then you may not be covered under your insurance policy during transport. Please refer to the exclusions and limitations in the WridgWays Removal and Storage Insurance brochure for more information.
When you arrive at your new home, your WridgWays Canberra removalists will carefully unpack and place your furniture and belongings where you want them to go.
Should I pack the boxes myself, and what are the implications of this?
You can pack your own boxes but you need to take precautions if you do so. Make sure you avoid using boxes that previously contained food or plant materials.
Our Canberra removalists can recommend boxes that are designed specifically for moving, such as book cartons that will prevent your books from folding or tearing. We can also provide you with a range of specialist packing boxes so all of your belongings will be safe and secure.
Do I need to dismantle all furniture before moving day?
While our Canberra removalists are always ready and equipped to dismantle large furniture items, they do request that you dismantle items such as swing sets, cubby houses, and built-in fixtures before moving day.
If you do need any help with outdoor items or built-in fixtures, our Canberra removalists can provide a disassembly service for you to make it easier. Simply ask one of our WridgWays moving consultants for a quote on this extra service.
Am I allowed to leave the house while the removalists are packing or unpacking?
On moving day, it is required that you, or a representative over the age of 18, is there while your Canberra removalists are packing up your belongings.
We need someone to be there to direct the moving crew when we unpack your belongings as well so that they know exactly where to place everything.
If my new house is not ready yet, can you organise storage until it is?
Yes, if you’re not ready to move into your new home yet then our Canberra removalists can arrange storage solutions to suit your needs.
With state-of-the-art facilities and the latest innovations, you can rest assured that your belongings will be safe and secure. Our facilities are located all over Australia to make it easier for you to access secure storage.
