Moving to Perth

Perth is the most isolated major city in the world. Instead of driving to Perth you may want to consider having your cars transported there for you. By the time that you add up the financial costs (fuel, hotels, engine wear and maintenance) along with the amount of time it will take to reach Perth, the benefits of having your vehicle delivered for you become increasingly apparent - not to mention the fact that you'll have enough on your plate moving thousands of kilometres across the country without having to drive all that way as well. We can perform this service for you at a competitive price. Visit our quotations page for a quote or add it to your existing inventory if you have one.

Western Australia's geographical isolation has, to an extent, guarded its native flora and fauna from animal and plant pests, diseases and weeds that could devastate W.A.'s unique and important ecosystem and agricultural industry. Consequently, Western Australia has very stringent laws that must be adhered to when entering or transporting goods into the state. If you are moving to W.A. from another state you will need to fulfil the requirements of the Western Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (WAQIS). Plants cannot be transported into W.A. and you must complete a freight declaration form that we issue with all quotes and bookings going to W.A. You may also download the form and find more information from the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia.

Packing your removal boxes properly is always important. However, the journey from East to West coasts is the longest and most rigorous is Australia. For this reason alone, we recommend that you pay special attention when packing your boxes or consider using our specialist Pre-Packing Services.

Perth is experiencing growth at an exponential rate. As a result the real estate market has become quite competitive, making it more difficult to find a place to buy or rent. If you're finding it hard to find permanent accommodation consider moving your goods into our secure storage facilities. Read more about our storage and redelivery services.

Getting Around Perth

From the Airport: A suburban airport bus runs regularly from the Airport to Perth suburbs and privately run shuttles meet inbound flights at an increased cost. Taxis are also readily available and there are several major car rental companies located at the Airport.

Within Perth: Perth has a good public transport network that runs in the city and out onto the suburbs. Public transport, provided by Transperth, is free within the inner city bounds (the "Free Transit Zone") and includes buses, trains and ferries. Transperth links with Transwa - Western Australia's rural transport service.
