Australians prepared to move interstate for a better lifestyle

#Interstate Removals #Moving House #Removal #Brisbane Removalists

ABOUT one in three Australians are prepared to pack their bags and move interstate if it meant they would end up better off.

Interstate Moving Australia

A report released today says 31 per cent of Australians would happily move interstate if they could earn a bigger wage and improve their work/life balance.
The ING Direct Financial Wellbeing Index found Queensland is the preferred destination, with 46 per cent of the households willing to move Interstate to the Sunshine State, followed by NSW and Victoria which both appealed to 40 per cent of people.
The report found the lure to move interstate would be to earn a higher salary (32 per cent), improve work/life balance (30 per cent), lower the cost of living (19 per cent), reduce home loan repayments as a result of lower property prices (10 per cent) and have better job opportunities (9 per cent).
ING Direct spokesman David Breen said the percentage of Australians willing to move Interstate was “quite high”.
“One in three nationally are prepared to move for either financial gain or a better lifestyle, they are the two driving forces,” he said.
“The Australian workforce is much more mobile or potentially more mobile than what people think.
“Whether they actually move Interstate is one thing, but consideration of moving sees there is great potential for the workforce.”
Social analyst David Chalke said the results showed Australians were far more flexible when it came to moving Interstate.
“People are far more mobile than they’ve ever been before,” he said.
“The young are far more mobile than their grandparents’ generation who would be born, work and die all in the same suburb.
“With the situation with mining and fly-in fly-out, the ability to earn $150,000 and do it for three years to buy a nice house is quite a powerful incentive for some people.”
He said the reason Queensland was the most desirable place to move interstate was because of “lifestyle”.
The results also showed men (32 per cent) were more willing to move interstate for financial gain than women (28 per cent).
South Australian residents were more likely than their interstate neighbours to move interstate with 35 per cent prepared to pack their bags if it meant earning more money.
The Financial Wellbeing Index, which rates household comfort levels across the six key aspects, also rose from 105.6 in the June quarter to 109 in the September quarter and was the highest reading since 2010.
The report said the increase was because of “ongoing efforts by Australian households to reduce debt and increase personal savings”.

  • Victoria: 40%
  • Western Australia: 31%
  • South Australia: 30%
  • Tasmania: 22%

  • Northern Territory 16%

Moving to Queensland—change your registration

If you move to Queensland from another state or territory, you must get Queensland registration and a Queensland driver licence. You have 14 days to register your vehicle in Queensland and may be fined if you don’t.
When you register your vehicle in Queensland, you can apply to get a refund on the remaining part of your interstate registration.
To do this, you need to hand in your interstate number plates at a transport and motoring customer service centre or, if you live in a rural area, a QGAP office, Magistrates Court or local police station that provides vehicle registration services.
If you have purchased personalised or customised number plates from the interstate authority you will have to check with them to see whether you can keep the plates.
You will get a receipt for the surrender of the number plates. To cancel the interstate registration you must contact the interstate authority where you vehicle was previously registered.

Moving from Queensland to interstate – Change Your Queensland Registration.

If you move to another state or territory and take your Queensland registered vehicle with you to your new address, you will need to register your vehicle in that state or territory.
When you register your vehicle in another state, surrender the number plates to the transport authority and make sure to get a plate surrender receipt. To do this, you need to contact the relevant transport authority to find out their registration requirements.

Refund of unexpired Queensland registration

You can apply to the Department of Transport and Main Roads for a refund of the unexpired portion of Queensland registration, as well as the compulsory third party (CTP) insurance component.
A refund will only be issued to the registered operator of the Queensland registered vehicle—this is the person who the vehicle is registered to. If you’re not the registered operator of a vehicle you cannot get a refund.

To apply for a refund of unexpired registration

Mail a completed cancellation of registration form (F3517) (PDF, 282KB) with a copy of the plate receipt to:
Department of Transport and Main Roads
Rockhampton Customer Service Centre
PO Box 5096
Make sure you provide your mailing address on the form.
Buying a Queensland registered vehicle from interstate
A vehicle must be garaged at a Queensland address to be registered in Queensland. If you live interstate and purchase a vehicle that is registered in Queensland, you cannot register it in your name in Queensland unless you have a Queensland garaging address.
If you can’t transfer the Queensland registration into your name, you may ask the seller to cancel the vehicle’s registration at a transport and motoring customer service centre. You can then apply for an unregistered vehicle permit to transport the vehicle to your home address.
To register the vehicle you will need to contact the transport authority in your state or territory to find out their registration requirements.
