Data Shows Victoria Attracting More Office Relocation

It seems that Queensland no longer holds the national title when it comes to interstate migration. According to data released by Property Observer, more and more people are coming to Victoria particularly for office relocation. Based on annual net migration figures, net interstate migration into Victoria is currently at a record high with approximately 2,468 people moving to the state from other parts of the country.

Property Observer, which is one of the most popular sources of independent news and information for Australian property investors, revealed that migrants from New South Wales are the most "substantial" interstate contributors to the growing Victorian population. Arrivals from the mining states also helped Victoria take away the title from Queensland, which has fallen to second place since the third quarter of 2013. During the first quarter of the current year, Queensland attracted some 5,772 interstate migrants. The figure is only slightly higher than the state's previous all-time low of 5,384 net interstate migrants recorded in 2010.

Experts attributed Victoria's steadily growing population to its strong economy. According to reports, Victoria's economy grew steadily in 2013 and 2014 despite challenging conditions. Treasurer Michael O'Brien said the state even has a budget surplus of $2 billion and employment in Victoria has grown modestly over the last couple of years.

Western Australia, on the other hand, remains the "fastest growing state" in the nation with an annual population growth of 2.5%. Although only 256 people chose to relocate to WA during the first quarter of the year, Property Observer said the state is still attracting a positive net interstate migration rate and this trend is expected to continue in the coming years.

Meanwhile, if you're planning to relocate to Victoria or to simply move to another neighbourhood in your home state, always make sure that you're hiring the best removalists to help you with the move. With the assistance of professional removalists, you can make your office or home relocations a piece of cake. Not only is it convenient, you can save a great deal of time and money, too.

But before you settle for a specific removals company, see to it that you have done a thorough research. Take note that not all companies that offer warehouse, office or library relocation are created equal. By doing your research, you can easily identify the removalists that are worth your time and money. In addition, you can prevent yourself from being victimised by bad moving companies.

    ABR Relocations recently moved our company into new offices and the process was easy, problem-free and within a welcomed (and earlier than expected) timeframe. The staff were professional and friendly, the tapeless boxes were very convenient and overall, the relocation was painless for all staff. Thank you!

    Cathy Fowler – Office Manager
  • City of Greater Bendigo

    The City of Greater Bendigo engaged ABR Relocations after an exhaustive selection process…based on recommendations by other libraries, Public Records of Victoria, economic value and the ability to perform the relocation within our time frame.

  • Dahlsens Building Centres

    We recently contracted ABR to move our offices from Malvern East to Notting Hill. The price quoted was fair but more importantly the service was very good and the workers were friendly and obliging. ABR has delivered everything they promised and went out of their way to deliver the little extras we forgot. We highly recommend ABR to anyone needing to move.

  • Department Of Human Services

    I was very impressed with the Tapeless Boxes™ that you use and they certainly are very durable, easy to pack, unpack and move around.They were the most polite & helpful removalists, that I, and others who were on site at the start of the move, have come across. The way in which you moved computers and equipment, and padded the door and stairways was very impressive and I believe with the information you provided us prior to the move enabled it all to go very well.

    Lorraine Hamilton, Office Manager
  • Marks & Clerk Australia

    We recently had occasion to use ABR Relocations following a relocation of the office. They were impressive from the outset. ABR were more than happy to coordinate the move with not only our staff, but also the company in charge of the fit out of our new office. On the day of the move they were a pleasure to work with and had a "can do" attitude. They also worked over the weekend to ensure that we would have a fresh start in our new office in the next week. Following the move ABR continued to assist us with a number of matters. Overall the whole removal process was made easy by the efficiency of ABR's staff and moving guide. We would not hesitate at all to recommend ABR for any removal needs.

  • Monash University

    Can I please pass on our thanks to your team for the great job done in our move today in the VC’s office, which was absolutely seamless. Vanessa and I were impressed by the fact that despite it being in the middle of a working day, your team managed to get it done without any interruption to our work.

    Damien Farrell, Director – Government and External Relations
  • Motion & Control - NSK

    I am pleased to recommend the company, ABR Relocations.
    Shifting 2500 pallets of bulk stock and 10,000 boxes of stock from our 2 storey mezzanine structure was always going to be logistically challenging when coordinating with another contractor responsible for the disassemble and re-assembly of the existing racking system. With constant questioning from the ABR team, our confidence in their ability to get the job done was justified. Job completed in 15 days. Well done.

    Bruce Lees – Marketing and Sales Support Manager
  • Singleton Ogilvy & Mather

    With a merger there are so many variables and so many things that can go amiss, so many little details that need to be addressed and thought through. We needed a relocation company that covered all these areas and more. You came up trumps! From the very first contact your courteous and co-operative manner and style shone through, to the well thought out move and eventual relocation, your efficiency was second to none.

    Roger Clifton, Senior Management Partner
  • Tattersalls

    Your staff were the most co-operative I have had the pleasure of working with during many relocations undertaken by Tattersalls. The innovative methods employed by your company, certainly contributed to our staff having a minimum of loss of production. No computer equipment or property was damaged during the move, which I am sure was due to your methods. Due to the quality of services, your company has been appointed as Tattersalls’ preferred supplier for any future relocation work.

    Baxter Henderson, Purchasing & Property Manager
  • Tattersalls

    I think the most rewarding sight I have seen for a while was on the Monday morning following the first move.Seeing the whole office complex set up as if the occupants had been in residence the previous Friday, and then watching people starting work with intact desks and filing cabinets, phone and computers within half an hour of arriving at work.This is not only a big productivity issue, but also a big morale booster for all the staff involved. Busy, properly motivated people become quite annoyed when they have to perform unproductive tasks.The ABR methods reduced this to an absolute minimum.
