Shipping to Australia
People keep asking us how long it takes to collect their stuff, ship and deliver them to an address in Australia. Off course it is very important to know so you can plan your move accordingly avoiding unnecessary hurry. Below, you can see how much time you should spend on each phase of your removals.
1 week for getting quotes
Let's start with the quotation process. You should allow for it at least one week. You need to contact a number of shipping companies to obtain at least 3 estimates. At this stage you should also start thinking how to transfer money to Australia. Also if you do not have time to invite movers to your home you will have to make an inventory list that will be required to work out the exact volume of your goods.
2 days for packing
Professional shipping firms can pack full 3 bedroom house in just one day however if you decide to do it yourself you should allow for it at least two days. You need to organize the packing boxes and wrapping materials for moving, get your family to pack their personal items and most important coordinate everything making sure there are no restricted items included otherwise your shipment will not go trough the quarantine check. You may also get an on-the-spot fine if you fail to declare all your possessions.
1 week for collection and the start of shipment
It take some time to reload your goods into a container, prepare all the custom documents, check the container at the port and load it on the vessel.
From 3 up to 6 weeks on the sea
The transit time in the table below is the time at sea. Please note that the transit times are approximate. Unfortunately no one can offer guaranteed delivery times until the vessel arrives to the destination port. Your shipment can be delayed for many different reasons especially for the bad weather conditions.
|From/To||Fremantle||Melbourne||Shipping to Sydney||Adelaide|
1 week for the custom clearance and delivery
For the collection, custom clearance and delivery times please allow another 7 days. For shipping goods and delivery time to other destinations please send us an email or give us a call.

UK shipping companies
Yes, if you decide to pack yourself we can provide removal boxes. The boxes can be send to you by a currier or delivered by our transport division to your home. Please remember that each box that has been packed by you need to have an inventory list attached to it.
For those that do not have time to do the packing we will be happy to provide professional full packing or fragile packing services. If you are not sure what to do we can provide 2 options, 1 for international packing and 1 without the packing so you can decide later.
Transportation by sea or by air?
You can choose between air and sea shipping to Australia. Everything depends on your budget, delivery time, size of your cargo. As you probably know the sea shipping costs are much more cheaper in comparison to shipping by air. On the other site if you ship by air your items will be delivered within a week instead of within 8 weeks if you use the sea service. Anyway whatever method you choose everything should be delivered safely.
