Shipping Australia

Moving overseas to a foreign country is one of the most exciting decisions you will ever make. When you move internationally, you create a whole new lifestyle for you and your family. You will be opening a whole new world of culture and will discover the wonders of a new environment. Considering all of those changes, it is important to surround yourself with familiar things from home, as they can help make adapting to your new community easier. Therefore you need to ship your contents. Read more about international container shipping Australia.

Shipping to Australia: the moving process

When you are moving to Australia there are several steps you have to take during the moving process. Whilst moving around the corner in your local area may be achievable with a couple of friends and a trailer, an intercontinental move involves more effort.

The process of removals to Australia:

  • Packing;
  • Loading;
  • Transport by ship or plane;
  • Unloading;
  • Unpacking.

If you would like to know more about this process, check Moving Overseas. You can also take a look at Moving to Australia! Finally, in addition to the shipping Australia process also remember the official administrative duties. It is advisable to have a good translator for the translation of abstracts and birth certificates. More information about documents and visas when you move to Australia can be found on Australian Embassy.

Shipping Australia

When you are moving intercontinentally your stuff will be transported by ship or plane. The mover will load your goods into the container on the arranged date. While loading it is essential that the goods are properly stowed in the van, so no damage can occur. For information about shipping costs, see International shipping costs.

Shipping Australia: tips for proper packing

  • Make sure all packing materials and cartons are new
  • Wrap all china, glass and crystal individually
  • Tape cartons across top, bottom and all sides
  • Make sure all rugs and carpets are rolled and wrapped
  • Mark your name, room and contents on each carton

You can choose to let the mover do the packing. You can also do your own packing and let the mover pack the fragile and expensive objects like antiques. Those items which are not suitable for packing will be padded for transport. These items include furniture items, large bulky pieces and large appliances. These items will be paper padded as a standard and where they require additional protection the use of double wrapping and crating will be involved.
