I dont know about he rest of australia but the rates in Adelaide are comparible with what I was getting in the UK a couple of years ago,,the work is quite different though as every job is usualy a full house of either carpet,vinyl or laminate/floatig floors. I have only done 2 hsl's in 2 years but there is usualy lots of seaming to do as all of the carpet here is 12foot wide and most of the rooms are a lot biggger than that.

You dont get crappy broken up ashphalt floors or rotting timber floors in ancient properties like you do in the uk so remedial work is usualy quite minimal, and they don't use doortrims like in the UK ,most doorways have to be seamed up.

There is plenty of comercial work available as well,,in fact I have been working on the same job since july last year,sadly this is coming to an end ut there are lots of other big projects if thats your thing. Hope this helps!

Sounds Good To Me, I'm looking to be out there next year.

I jump between comercial and domestic here in London.

 

Is the work normaly on a price or day rates, in London now a day rate ranges from £125 to £180 depending on what's involved obviously.

 

I'm really looking forward to getting out there just worried about getting work and how much money to take with me to use while I'm looking for work.

The rates are usualy piece work, I myself have been earning around $500 per day laying commercial vinyl. You will find lots of work if you can do a bit of everything as the layers out here seem to only do one thing i.e a carpet layer does not do vinyls,,a vinyl layer does not do carpets,a laminate layer doesnt do anything but laminate. Most of the stores I have dealt with are always looking for good reliable fitters as there seems to be a shortage ,especialy if you can do everything.

Until I came out here I never toutched karndean,but have also been layingthis,,straight lay is around $12 per metre but your average job is 120m2 plus! and the prep is a lot easier than back home as the floors are in better condition.

Hi, could you please provide some more information. My husband is a floor layer with lots of experience. Is there any possibility of Employer Sponsorship?

I know this is an old thread but I'm looking into coming out to oZ soon and have been fitting since I was 18' that was 15 yes ago so I have quite a bit of experience. I have been with a company called carpet right now for over 8 yrs and have done various tests with them I have certificates and am f.I.t.a. Registered here in the uk. I have fitted some amtico and karndeen with a trained fitter but usually just fit carpet and vinyl for carpet right. Any help would be appreciated for anywhere in Australia tbh, thanks Graham.

Hi Graham,

Are you looking to come to oz on a more permanent basis, we have a floor covering business in Scone (Horse capital of Australia) New South Wales, 3 hours north of Sydney. An opportunity has became available for a full time layer, what aspects of floor covers are you experienced in.:
