Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
We do more than just move your things from Point A to Point B. We provide a comprehensive all-round service that can take you from Melbourne to your destination, without the middleman. You will have a direct line to your personal moving consultant, who can help you with everything from the basics to added extras like storage, tracking, and insurance, along with setup and handyman services in your new home. This is what sets Allied apart from competitors.
There are several factors that influence how long delivery of your belongings will take. For example, choosing sea freighting is a slower process than air freighting, but is generally the best option for bigger moves. Shipping a container with only your belongings is quicker than a shared container, as that cannot be shipped until all parties are ready. The distance will have a large impact on timeframes, especially as Melbourne is so far south of many popular destinations, as well as customs clearance on arrival.
Yes! Your furry friends are part of the family, so of course you’ll want to take them around the world with you. If you are moving to Melbourne from outside of Australia, there is important documentation needed when bringing pets along, and many other countries have similar procedures. These can include pet passports, vet checks, and quarantine periods. Our Allied experts understand local requirements and can help guide you through the necessary measures.
When it comes to your movers, the price will be dictated largely by the volume of items involved. To keep things under control, it may be worthwhile to consider selling some items locally, and repurchasing them upon arrival. This can be a good option for furniture that you aren’t particularly attached to, and smaller things like kitchen appliances. Luckily, the second-hand market in Melbourne is always booming, so you should be able to shift some items easily.
Familiarise yourself with the climate of your destination, and make sure to have appropriate clothing and essentials ready for when you arrive. Melbournians know to pack for all weather, so this one shouldn’t be too hard! PTV’s trams, trains, and buses are all part of everyday life in Melbourne, but public transport may not be quite so accessible in your new home. Take this into account when choosing where to live, and whether or not you’ll need a car to get around easier. Don’t forget to prepare for any cultural changes too, like language barriers, currency swaps, and cost of living differences.
