Services and Things to Consider Before Moving to a New Locality in Adelaide

Moving from one Australian neighborhood to another is never an easy process. Besides finding the best moving services in Adelaide, there are a lot of factors to consider from choosing the best location to facilities in the locality. 

The process is time-consuming and to get over it, most property seekers usually pick a property on the basis of its look rather than investigating the locality. And, little do they know, shopping for a property like clothes can bring several risks since it's not something that you can ‘return’ or ‘exchange’ within a week of purchase. 

As a realtor, I try to give my clients every insight into the property and ask them to not to rush their decision. I want nothing but the best for my clients, so putting their investment and safety at stake, I have compiled a checklist of things that every homebuyer should consider before moving to a new locality in Australia. 

Let’s start!

What to Consider Before Moving to a New Place in Adelaide 

Here’s a checklist that you should consider before choosing a neighbourhood and booking moving services in Adelaide:


In the real estate industry of Australia, an old adage goes by ‘location, location, location’. It means there’s nothing more important than investigating the neighbourhood while purchasing your home. Here are a few things that you should look into: 

  • Real estate value of the locality 
  • Personal convenience 
  • Distance from the city centre
  • Connection with major road links of the city  
  • Distance from your or your partner’s workplace 
  • Crime rate in the neighbourhood 


The second thing on our list of things to consider before moving to a new place in Adelaide is security. From a secure environment to property insurance, everything comes under the umbrella of measuring the security of your purchase. 

Make sure the neighborhood boasts fool-proof security by looking into things like CCTV cameras, surveillance systems, security guards, and crime rate. For property insurance, you need to get in touch with your bank or ask the homeowner if the property is insured. 

Get in touch with the neighbors and inquire about their concerns on security [if they have any].

Moving Services and Facilities 

While you’re checking off everything in the list, make sure to find a company that offers moving services in the neighborhood you’re aiming to relocate. The best way to find such service is to get on the internet and search ‘moving services Adelaide’ - you will have a list of the nearby moving companies. Give them a call and inquire whether they offer services in your desired locality or not. 

Besides, you should also look into the facilities such as proper waste management systems, cellular and internet services, public transport, emergency services, healthcare, and schools. 

Utility Supplies 

Imagine moving into a safe and secure neighborhood with top-notch location and state-of-the-art schools, but for there’s shortage of or difficulty in finding basic utilities like water, electricity, or the internet works poorly. Make sure to add this in your checklist once you’ve figured out the best moving services in Adelaide for your new property venture.  

Parking Space

Last but not least, finding a suitable parking space for your vehicle can be a bit of a hassle, especially if you have chosen to live in a bustling neighborhood of Adelaide. It might not be a problem if you’re moving to a place of your own, like buying a house, or a portion in a house. 

For renters and people who are looking to buy in a highrise apartment building, it can be a challenge to find parking space. So, make sure to add this in your list to find the best locality in Adelaide for your next move.

I really hope that my attempt helps you make a well-informed decision.
