Whether you’re moving to Melbourne for work, schooling or a change of scenery, it can be difficult doing it alone. Like with any new experience, you need to be prepared for the possible struggles you may face.

Here are just some of the challenges you could face when moving alone to Melbourne.

Arranging your accommodation

Cities aren’t exactly known for their cheap rents or low housing prices, so it can take a bit of work to find the most suitable option for your needs and budget.

Sometimes, the most viable option is to find a share house to move into so that you’re not paying as much rent and it’s quicker to settle in to your new location.

Settling into Melbourne

With the fluctuating weather, a new environment and a new lifestyle to adjust to, it can be hard dealing with all of this on your own.

The best way to get used to your new surroundings is to get amongst them. Start exploring your new city, and getting out and meeting new people, and you’ll soon get into the swing of things.

Getting homesick

Being away from your loved ones and your old city can make you feel homesick; missing what you left behind.

Technology has made things like video calling accessible to everyone, and instant messaging through any number of platforms is another way to handle being homesick. You’ll adjust in time and find it easier to deal with, so keep that in mind when you’re feeling down.

Organising a major move by yourself

It’s all up to you when you move on your own to Melbourne. There’s nobody else to help you sort through your belongings and decide what to take with you, or organise a removalist for you. That’s why it’s important to choose a moving company you can rely on, to make the move much easier on yourself. That way, you can concentrate on other parts of your move.
