Moving to the United Kingdom from Australia is not just for young people wanting to experience London life for a couple of years. The United Kingdom can offer an exciting fast-paced lifestyle, or a relaxed rural experience; perfect for families, older couples wanting to retire, younger couples wanting to climb the corporate ladder, and individuals wanting to experience something new.
Why Move from Australia To the United Kingdom?
The United Kingdom is a popular moving destination and therefore allows for shared container services, making the cost of moving overseas more affordable.
Some of the biggest companies in the world have head offices located in the United Kingdom. Some of the top industries include banking and finance, tech, construction and education.
The public transport systems in the United Kingdom are super-efficient and convenient. It’s easy to get around in the United Kingdom without a car as the extensive public transport network can get you just about anywhere.
The United Kingdom hosts some of the top sports events such as Wimbledon, the EPL, and the British Grand Prix, as well as top international music acts, stage shows, theatre productions and cultural festivals.
Ease of Travel
The United Kingdom is a great place to base yourself if you wish to explore Europe. Travel to Europe and even further afar are incredibly cheap from that side of the world and there are many low-cost carriers offering heavily discounted airfares.
Although you’re moving to the other side of the world, it’s not too foreign that you’ll be overwhelmed with culture shock. Sure, they use a different currency and drive on the other side of the road, but they speak the same language which is very helpful when trying to settle into a new country. Speaking the same language will also help you secure a job.
The United Kingdom has thousands of years of history compared to a few hundred in Australia. This means the architecture, art, and museums are packed with cultural and historical wonders of worldwide significance.
Requirements of Moving to The United Kingdom:
You’ll first need to make sure you have a valid passport before you can start any paperwork or application processes, such as your visa application.
There are a number of visas you can apply for, depending on your circumstances. These include a two year working holiday, employer sponsored visa, ancestry visa and partnership visa. You need to apply for your visa in Australia, with your passport. The application processing time can take up to three months, so it pays to do this in advance.
Depending on your visa, you may need to have a job secured as a prerequisite to being granted your visa. Other visas entitle you to secure a job once you have arrived in the United Kingdom.
You will not be eligible for insurance in the United Kingdom until you have lived there for at least 6 months, so it pays to get travel insurance to keep you covered.

We Offer a Range of Moving Services to UK from Australia:
As the experts in international relocations in Australia, we pride ourselves on our top-notch international moving service. We service all major international destinations, with several relocation options to suit your budget:
Full container loads (FCL) – the fastest mode of sea freight. Your goods are loaded into the container by themselves.
Shared container loads (Groupage) – for the budget conscious. Your goods are loaded into the container with other goods (you share the shipping cost). Transit times are longer than FCL in order to make up full loads.
Less than full container loads (LCL) – ideal for small shipments that need to be sent immediately. Your goods are wrapped and secured in a wooden crate and loaded with other goods into a container.
Airfreight – You can’t get it there any quicker than this. We use a modular carton pack to eliminate the spare space that you will be charged for by the airline. Our design is a market leader in way of security and cost effectiveness.
We Offer Secure Packing of Your Belongings:
It is essential that careful attention is paid to the packing of your furniture and household items, which must be wrapped and packed by skilled packing teams specifically for international shipping. All items are individually labelled for easy identification and accompanied by a complete inventory to ensure the safe arrival at destination.
