Australians are on the move!

Victoria recorded its greatest number of interstate migration in more than 40 years! Most of the new arrivals came from New South Wales followed by South Australia and Western Australia, according to Australian Bureau of Statistics. In the Western Territory and Queensland, more residents left the state than arrived in 2014. Many of these residents will turn to self pack container removals for their moves. Why? self pack removals offers an extremely economical and uncomplicated way to move interstate. For those on a budget, it is an especially attractive option. For those who’d like some control over the process, it’s also a great option.
