Moving interstate with your equipment
If you are moving to a new state or territory to live, you may be able to take your equipment with you.
There are some things you must do before you leave the Northern Territory (NT).
Before you leave
You must do all of the following:
- contact your current equipment provider to confirm what you can take with you
- contact your new interstate equipment provider for information about repairs to your equipment
- make arrangements with your new equipment provider to transfer any outstanding requests for new equipment.
The Disability Equipment Program will contact the relevant interstate equipment scheme to transfer ownership to that scheme.
If you receive regular supplies such as continence or respiratory products, contact your new equipment provider to find out what can be provided in your new state.
If you are on the waiting list for new equipment
If you are on waiting list for new equipment ask your NT equipment provider to send a copy of your request to your new equipment provider.
