Tips For Moving To Tasmania

Moving to Tasmania is a lifelong dream for so many people. Whether you’ve fallen in love with the island on a previous visit or you’re returning home after spending years on the mainland, there’s no doubt that the beautiful surroundings and laidback lifestyle will give you a new lease of life. 

When you’re planning any type of house move, it’s important to think ahead and be prepared. To ensure you’ve got everything covered, take a look at these tips for moving to Tasmania. Don’t forget – even the best-laid plans can go awry, so always have a contingency plan when you’re relocating!

1. Research your decision

If you grew up in Tasmania, your mind will be filled with memories of childhood games, endless summer days and a carefree attitude. Similarly, if you’re basing your decision to relocate on a vacation experience, you’ll be assuming that you’ll have the same relaxed lifestyle all year round once you arrive on the island. 

While it’s certainly true that locals do enjoy a relaxed outlook and an enviable pace of life, it’s important to ensure that you know what day-to-day life will entail once you’ve moved into your new abode. Visit the island a few times before you make a major commitment and be sure that you’re making the right decision for you and your family.  

2. Explore every option

Once your mind is made up and you’re committed to the move, it’s time to start thinking about exactly where you want to live. If you have school-aged kids, you’re going to want to be within the catchment area of a good school, for example. Similarly, if you’ll be working while living here, you’ll need to ensure that you’re in a commutable distance from major commercial hubs. 

Create a list of your must-have amenities and start researching the towns and areas that could provide what you’re looking for. There’s plenty of information available online, so you can undertake research from anywhere in the world and follow it up with a visit in person. 

3. Plan your removals

Moving to Tasmania can be tricky if you’re not well-prepared. Booking a crossing and facilitating the onboarding of all your belongings is logistically challenging, particularly if it’s not something you’ve ever organised before. If you really want your relocation to go smoothly, it’s well worth using a professional removal service.
