International Removals to Sydney
Sydney is a global domestic and tourist hub that is regularly declared to be one of the most beautiful and liveable cities in the world. It’s the largest capital of New South Wales and has the largest population of all the cities in Australia. Sydney is an advanced, developed and peaceful destination with sunny beaches, laid back lifestyle and friendly people. The city is a strong financial hub, with a pivotal role in the world economy.
Little wonder then, that Schepens has helped numerous families make the move to this exciting city. The vast majority of expats love this friendly, laid back city. We asked them if there was any advice they’d give to movers about to start a new life in Sydney. Here’s what they told us.
1. Don’t Jettison Your Jumpers
Despite the fact that Sydney enjoys a sub-tropical climate, the winters can get pretty cold. Expats told us that you definitely need some winter clothes in your wardrobe. This is exacerbated by the fact that Australian accommodation is often built for heat, not cold. Expect blue skies, and temperatures of around 9-17ºC.
2. Sydney Transport System
People moan about the transport system in Sydney, despite the fact that there’s been huge investment in the infrastructure recently. Basically, the problem is that the rail network isn’t trusted by commuters, so the majority of people end up taking the car to work. This leads to clogged up roads and complaints that there’s no viable alternative to driving.
3. A Really Friendly City
Absolutely every expat we spoke to spoke positively about the friendliness of the people they encounter in the city. From fellow expats, to people they work with, to long suffering transport employees. It comes as no surprise that Sydney regularly tops the polls for being the friendliest city on the planet!
4. Property is Expensive
Sydney property prices are amongst the most expensive in the world. The current trend in the city is for renting, therefore, but there are suburbs where buying is still an attractive proposition. These tend to be concentrated in West Sydney, in Rosen, Lakemba and Waterloo. In each of these areas studies found it was cheaper to buy than to rent.
5. You’ll Get Fit
There something magical about the way in which even the most hardened couch potato starts to embrace a healthy lifestyle in Sydney. Expats told us that exercising, and working out are hugely attractive lifestyle options, and this – allied to the wonderful weather and location – make you want to spend more time outdoors, getting your body in shape.
Finally I unpacked every box and I can say that every item was in very good condition. I want to thank you for the very good service you offered me and I recommended your company to my friends. Every step of the process was very professionally done and your crew consists of nice and competent people. Thank you very much for everything.
