moving to Canberra

The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) houses Canberra, Australia’s capital which has a population of approximately 360,000 people. The city was built between Sydney and Melbourne in the early 20th century. Canberra is Australia’s largest inland city and the eighth-largest city overall.

Canberra was designed to be a neutral site for the Federal seat of government, consequently not giving any particular state an advantage by hosting the government.

“Nothing was too much trouble”

We just thought that we would like to acknowledge how fantastic the service from Allied Pickfords has been so far.
Right from the moment Carla and Jimmy walked in the door yesterday we knew were in good hands. Nothing was too much trouble as they quickly and efficiently went about packing up our family home of 36 years. All of our belongings of all shapes & sizes were loaded into the container with the ease of professionals.
