Shipping machinery

If you would like to import machinery to OZ or export factory plants from the UK to Australia there are strict regulations in respect of making sure there are no insects, plant seeds or bacteria present that could threaten the unique Australian's flora and fauna. Whatever type of machines your would like to bring to OZ – printing presses, milling machines, industrial fans, building equipment, cranes, production lines or large trucks you will have to make sure they are properly cleaned, free from any contamination. If you fail to clean your machinery the Australian Department of Agriculture can send your machines back to the UK at your costs.

Why the machines have to be properly cleaned prior to arrival in Australia?

Used machinery and industrial equipment can be contaminated with soil, animal or plant materials which can contain pests, viruses and diseases that can have a devastating impact on the unique Australian environment. There are plenty of diseases in the UK that are not present in OZ. That's why it is so important they are not brought to Australia together with the machines.

Machinery moving equipmentAny machinery and machinery parts that had direct contact with soil, plant or animal material must be properly cleaned. If you would like to avoid any delays in delivering your machinery to Australia you may want to dismantle them. The officers of Australian Department of Agriculture are very accurate and strictly follow the cleanliness checking procedures. The importer should make sure the machinery does not require dismantling to be checked properly. It is advisable all heavy machines are shipped dismantled so they can be inspected quickly, with no problems and released from the wharf or storage facility.

If the biosecurity worker inspects your machinery and recognizes you did not make any effort to clean the machine your import permit can be cancelled and the machinery could be returned to the UK on your expense.  In the case there are only small traces of contamination or the machine needs dismantling for proper inspection it will be sent to the nearest Quarantine Approved Premises. The QAP workers will dismantle and clean the machine so it is ready for re-inspection. The cost of dismantling and cleaning is to be covered by the machine owner.

As you can see the cleanliness of your heavy equipment plays a very important part when importing machinery from overseas. We offer both professional cleaning and international packing services. We will make your devices, trucks and other heavy machines ready. Avoid problems and cut down your expenses only to the necessary once that can't be avoided.
