Moving to Manukau

If you are considering a move to the Manukau area of Auckland City, you will find plenty of suburbs to choose from, including Papatoetoe, Manurewa, Pakuranga, Mangere and Howick. Whether you are looking to buy or rent, there are lots of options to choose from and you can even make use of great self storage units in Manukau if you find yourself “between houses”.

The Manukau area covers a large sprawling urban area close to the Auckland International Airport, and Rainbow’s End theme park. Many parts of Manukau are also not far from rural areas and beaches. The Manukau City Centre is a huge retail and service centre with an incredible range of shops as well as movie theatres and eateries. The area is close to the rest of Auckland, and during off peak times it will only take you about 20 minutes to drive into the Auckland central business district and other suburbs such as Ponsonby, Grey Lynn and Remuera.

If you are renting, you may end up with some items that you don’t have space for in your rented property. In that case, it’s a good idea to use self storage units in Manukau. Storing your surplus items while you are renting means you don’t have to sell them or give them away, and they’ll be kept perfectly safe until you need them again.

When you are looking at rental properties in Manukau you will come across all sorts of different possibilities, from flats, apartments and town houses to houses of all sizes in the suburbs and even rural properties. Manukau is such a large area, that the rental prices vary markedly across the region from suburb to suburb. You might pay $350 per week for a home in one suburb and twice that much for something smaller in another suburb. When you find the perfect rental property for your needs, don’t try to squeeze all your possessions in. If you have too many items, or there is a double up and your house mates have some of the same items as you do, then self storage units in Manukau are the perfect answer.

The moving process can be a drama, and you may find somewhere temporary until exactly the right home comes along. If you have the possibility of self storage units in Manukau as an option, you can store most of your belongings in the unit and just have your most important items with you until you are truly settled into your long term home.
