There are a few things you'll need to do before you move to Brisbane. An essential guide to moving to Brisbane

With any big move, it's important to plan ahead to make sure you can settle into your new home as smoothly as possible - especially if you're heading to an entirely new city.

Some careful, detailed planning ahead of time can make all the difference to the moving process, so it's worth putting some serious thought into organising this life change.

If you're getting ready to live in Brisbane, here are a few important things to check off your to-do list.

Finding accommodation

Before you go anywhere, it's a good idea to secure your new home - there's nothing worse than arriving in an unfamiliar city, only to find that your rental or boarding plans have fallen through!

With long term accommodation available through the Live@Mantra program, you can enjoy the convenience of living in a central location in a furnished, modern apartment that will help you feel at home.

Mantra on Queen and Mantra South Bank are two great options to consider if you're looking for long-term accommodation in Brisbane.

You won't have to deal with the hassle of setting up utilities or securing a rental, and you can enjoy a range of services such as discounted internet and parking and 24-hour reception.

Organising travel

If you plan to fly to Brisbane, flights will need to be booked as early as possible if you're looking for ones that won't make too much of a dent in your wallet.

On the other hand, if you're driving you need to ensure that your car is sound and ready to go and you have planned out the best route to take.

There are also several bus and train services available for your convenience, so it's worth checking these out if you're looking for a cost-effective option.

Tying up loose ends

List down everything you'll need to take and organise for a moving company to help you transport these items to Brisbane (if you can't take them yourself). This way, you won't leave anything behind and you can focus on taking only the things you really need.

Before you leave, you'll need to change your address for your mail and organise disconnection of utilities such as telephone and internet at your old home.
