White & Company are also proud winners of the British Association of Removers ‘Overseas Mover of the Year’ Competition 2016.

Darwin Removals

Moving household possessions for international removals & shipping is not like moving in the UK or even to Europe. International removals are a completely different process involving export packing, container loading, shipping, export documentation, customs and the observance of local regulations and procedures at destination. But that’s all in a day’s work for us.

Although moving to a completely different country has its exciting side, it can also be a time of great stress. Leaving everything and everyone definitely takes you outside your comfort zone and there is much to do before you get there. White & Company can help take some of the worry out of  Darwin removals. We have been moving people around the globe for many years. Having been in business since 1871 we have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience over this time.

Planning Darwin Removals

Planning your Darwin removals as early as possible is definitely beneficial, as there are a host of things that need to happen to ensure your move takes place on the day or days you require. One of your first tasks should be to arrange a written quote from an established removal firm. White & Company can offer a free home survey to assess your moving and storage requirements. Our professional surveyor will identify the volume of goods you are moving and supply you with a detailed quotation within 48 hours of a home visit.

Darwin Removals Packing

Once you have decided to move home, you should consider if you wish to pack your possessions yourself or arrange for a removal company to pack some or all of your effects for you. If you choose to pack yourself, White & Company can supply you with top quality packaging materials delivered to you as and when you need them.

If you would like us to pack your Darwin removals for you, we will ensure china and glassware are wrapped in special paper and then packed in double-thickness cartons; furniture can be wrapped in bubble blanket for extra protection; and items requiring specialist care, such as antiques, can be packed in made-to-measure wooden crates.

If you feel there are some items you would like to pack yourself, this is absolutely fine. The removal team will supply you with the correct packing materials on the move day. Alternatively, you can arrange to have a selection of boxes, paper and tape delivered before the move date.

With over a century of experience of moving families across the world, we will take care of all the details and help you achieve a stress free move. White & Company are founder members of BARFIDI  and Omni. White & Company your first choice.

Removals Darwin – Common Relocation Questions

Having one of our experience estimators visit you before the move is imperative. During the visit the estimator will complete a report and discuss issues such as difficult access to your property. He will also check to see if there are any unusual items being shipped such as a piano, as these will need specialist care when being packed. Other common queries you might have may include:

• What are the customs regulations for importing goods into Australia?
• Do I take everything with me or do I take just essentials?
• Can I ship my motor car/motor bike?
• Is it cheaper to ship everything or buy everything new once I arrive?
• How long will it take for my effects to arrive in Australia?
• How much does shipping cost?
• Will my effects be covered by insurance in case of breakages?

Why Darwin – Houses for Sale in Darwin

The outdoor way of life combined with the weather and laidback family orientated attitude of the Australians makes moving to Darwin an attractive proposition.

It has been said that Darwin is arguably Australia’s most cosmopolitan city, boasting a population made up of people from more than 60 nationalities and 70 different ethnic backgrounds. This makes for an amazing mix of cuisine, customs and cultural festivals. In the past Darwin was seen as a frontier town and less sophisticated than other cities such as Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. Nothing could be further from the truth. Darwin has equally as much to offer, if not more that its other rival cities. There are plenty of museums and galleries to visit. Crocodile farms, wildlife sanctuaries, safaris, water sports, deep sea fishing and stunning beaches are just a few to mention.

Finding Property and Property Prices – Houses for Sale in Darwin

As with most cities, property closer to the centre tends to be more expensive and the further out of town you go, the lower the prices become. Darwin has suffered a slump in property values in the last couple of years, due to mining job losses. However, property experts have reported that the market is on the rise again.

Tiwi is a popular suburb, it lies close to the Northern Territories largest shopping centre, Casuarina Square. It is also close to beautiful beaches and to the Charles Darwin University. The average house price here is currently AU$500.000 (£284,000).

You can purchase a lovely contemporary apartment, close to the beach with two bedrooms for AU$399,000 (£226,000). There are some luxury homes for sale with a large price tag of AU$950,000 (£539,000).

Australian real estate agents will only be too happy to assist you with buying property, answer any questions you may have and guide you through the whole process. Below are some estate agent web sites which may be of interest in your search for property for sale in Darwin:

Darwin is very close to the equator and surrounded by a spectacular and beautiful landscape. It has a thriving tourist industry and stunning national parks, the biggest being Kakadu. The area also has many beautiful beaches; the best are Mindil Beach, Vestey’s Beach and the popular nudist beach at Casaurina. There are plenty of street-side restaurants and bars, interesting museums celebrating the city’s past, and galleries to showcase Darwin’s rich indigenous art. The transport connections in Darwin are fairly basic, there is a local bus service, which is run by the government and is called the Darwinbus.  The service operates from the Darwin, Casuarina and Palmerston Interchange stations and also services Greater Darwin.

Removals Darwin – Education

If you are planning your Darwin removals and emigrating with your family, you will need to ensure that they receive a good education in Darwin. The standard of education in Australia is world-renowned, and many expats even migrate to Australia’s sunny shores specifically to become students. The age at which a child starts school currently depends on the state in which you live. The general ruse is that school is compulsory for children aged older than five or six and younger than 16 or 17.

Following compulsory schooling, and provided your child has obtained a SSCE qualification, they can progress to university. Australian universities have an extremely good worldwide reputation and attract students from all over the world. There are a total of 41 universities in Australia and four of these are ranked in the top 100 universities in the world list.

Like any other Australian native, if you’re a permanent resident in Australia, you will be eligible for the public health system Medicare, Australia’s publicly funded universal health care system.
