Moving to the Sunshine Coast

Whether you’re moving for adventure, lifestyle, or retirement the Sunshine Coast is one of Australia’s most popular destinations for kiwis making a move across the ditch. Located just one hour’s drive from Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast is home to 70kms of the world’s most beautiful coastline, hinterlands, inland waterways, and out of the way villages that showcase local arts and crafts. No matter where you are there’s easy access to national parks, Fraser Island, Underwater World, Australia Zoo, and many other incredible attractions.

Living on the Sunshine Coast offers an environment that is laid back and relaxed in atmosphere yet is also vibrant. There’s something for everyone from extreme sports fans to those who want to explore the hinterland or just relax and enjoy the stunning beaches and natural beauty. The sunny sub-tropical climate is ideal for year-round activity with the warmest month of the year (January) averaging 28 degrees C and the coldest (July) averaging 21 degrees C.

Despite its idyllic lifestyle, the Sunshine Coast still abounds in study and employment opportunities. The population is growing rapidly, with 400,000 residents, expected to grow to over 540,000 by 2032. The University of Sunshine Coast (USC) is one of Australia’s fastest growing universities and more than 400 training organisation’s provide outstanding study and career options.

Shipping Options to the Sunshine Coast

Most Ausmove customers use sea freight to send their household goods and personal effects to Sunshine Coast. No move is too big or too small, whether you have a few items or a six bedroom house load we will find the right option to fit your needs, circumstances and most importantly your budget.

These options include;

  • We can pack and ship your belongings in a shared or groupage sea container. If you’re on a tight budget or have a smaller shipment this is very popular. You only pay for your portion of the shipping container and other customers pay for the balance. As a rough guideline this will take between 5- and 8-weeks door to door.
  • We provide Full Container (FCL) or sole use containers for exclusive use. This is the fastest sea freight option, with an approximate transit time of 4-5 weeks door to door. This is recommended for a full house load, as a guideline the contents of a three-bedroom house usually fit into a 20ft container. A five or six-bedroom house should fit into a 40 ft container.
  • Airfreight is the fastest method of getting your effects to Sunshine Coast. It is also more expensive but can significantly reduce your temporary accommodation costs, as it only takes one to two weeks door to door. Many customers use a combination of both sea and air freight. Things that are needed urgently can be sent by air, and the remainder of the shipment can follow by sea, at a lower cost.
  • We routinely ship motor vehicles, in both groupage and sole use containers. A medium sized family car or mid-sized SUV will fit into a sole use 20ft container, including the building of a false wall or bulkhead to secure the load. Alternatively, you can take a 40 ft container and have both your household goods and vehicle sharing the same container.
