We can offer great rates for January and February for full loads, LCL, and vehicles to Australia.
If you are shipping to Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane or Fremantle please do contact us for extremely competitive rates.
We can collect from your door or if a smaller shipment you can drop the goods into one of our 15 receiving centres throughout the UK. Containers for full loads will be positioned at the loading point of your choice.
We specialise in shipping worldwide and Australia is one of our major destinations. It is a good idea to get several quotes before before making a decision but do keep in mind that the cheapest quote isn’t necessarily the best one. Consider what you are getting in the rate quoted. Some companies will quote a door to door rate and others a door to Port or depot. Because of the currency fluctuations it is better to split the charges so you pay in sterling for UK charges up to the Port of destination and then charges at destination in local currency.
Take into consideration:
- How long it will take for your belongings to arrive – ask the company to advise you of the vessel, the estimated time of sailing and estimated time of arrival. We offer a weekly service with transit times from 38 to 42 days.
- Although it’s comforting to be surrounded by familiar things when you move to a new country, it’s worthwhile doing a thorough review before deciding what to ship to Australia to determine whether the costs outweigh the benefits.Think twice before shipping any electrical goods. Australia runs on 230V power (50Hz), so you may require transformers and adaptors for them to work in Australia.
Australia has some tight quarantine laws, particularly around food, plant and animal material. There are also other restrictions on what you can take into the country and in some cases permits may be required. We can advise you on restrictions. Any wood packaging must comply with Wood Packaging regulations.
