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.
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!

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.
