Living costs anywhere are subjective of course, depending upon your standard of living. The good news though, is that comparatively speaking, Adelaide is one of the cheaper main cities to live in Australia-wide. The median rent price per week in central Adelaide is $418. The median house price is $597,375*. (Compare to Perth, where the median rent price per week is $460 and the median house price is a whopping $835,000*!)
There are many options that are cheaper (or more expensive) based on your location. The great thing about Adelaide is that you can choose to live in the city centre, by the beach, near the port, in the picturesque Adelaide hills or the beautiful surrounding countryside - whatever your favourite type of landscape is, Adelaide probably has it!

Generally speaking, yes. We can deliver moving containers to all corners of Adelaide and beyond. We have previously delivered containers to addresses as far north as Port Augusta and as far south as Victor Harbor and plenty of places in-between, such as Mount Barker, Nuriootpa, Seaford Rise and McLaren Vale. In all cases, when we book in an interstate move, we always check out your delivery and pick-up addresses to ascertain whether or not a shipping container can be placed there. In most cases, it is not a problem, however there can sometimes be issues with deliveries to apartment blocks or units. The good news is that there are other options available if you don't have space for a moving container at your address - the most popular being a depot load/unload. To ensure you have the best chance of taking advantage of the great savings we can offer, we try to make the container removals option available to everyone we can, so if you're unsure whether it can work for you, give us a call and we will happily take a look at your address and discuss your moving options.

Yes! We are happy to provide short-term or long-term storage - or maybe you don't even know how long you will need it stored, either way, it's not a problem.

Usually the farther away from the rail terminal you are, the higher the cost of your move. Our costs are very competitive though and we are happy to take a look at any other quotes you get, we will do our best to beat any competitors quote for the same service.
