Moving abroad is an option which is considered by many Brits every single year and an increasingly popular option for many people is Australia — in fact, 13.6% of the emigrant population in Australia is British. However, before you pack up and get a Shipping to Australia quote from an international removals company, there is the important matter of deciding whether or not this is really the move for you – so, what considerations do you need to make?
The first thing you will need to inevitably consider is your family — would they be happy living in Australia, or even living in another country which isn’t the UK? Despite the fact that there is a certain cross-cultural element between the UK and Australia, it is still a different country with different customs, and there will of course be a settling in period, especially for older children or children in their teens.
Another consideration you will need to make is cost – can you afford it? Not only will you have to pay for the removal, but you will also have to find a job, buy a new house, perhaps a new car and in the meantime, find enough money to live off. This can cause a serious amount of financial hardship.
