Now, more than ever, moving homes is a stressful and tiresome process. With the added weight of COVID restrictions, it can be difficult to get the manpower you need on-site to have your move completed quickly and smoothly. If you are in the process of looking for a new home, moving to a COVID-safe suburb can ensure that you have a great moving process, but also that your family’s health is prioritised. Below is a list of COVID-Safe suburbs that we recommend considering if you are looking to relocate.

Please note, due to the nature of COVID, we cannot guarantee that these locations will remain COVID-safe.
