    Darwin is the capital city of the Northern Territory. With a population of approximately 150,000, the city contains the majority of NT residents. Darwin is the smallest and most northerly of the Australian capital cities and serves as regional centre for the Top End.

    Darwin’s landscape varies from inner-city apartments to sprawling acreage properties. Homes are often designed to celebrate the outdoors, with large entertaining areas, swimming pools, and tropical gardens. While the NT is a beautiful state, the rest of Australia also has much to offer, so it’s common for NT residents to move interstate too.

    Relocating or moving goods to or from the Northern Territory can be an overwhelming experience. If you’re planning to move, the last thing you need is the stress of wondering whether your possessions will arrive safely. Or if you’re managing a business, you may need to transport goods that can’t easily be trucked.

    At ContainerZone, we specialise in Australia-wide container removals, transport, hire and storage. Whether you’re moving between Darwin and regional NT, or between states, we ensure your contents arrive quickly and securely, with full transit insurance and real-time tracking.
