Shipping your belongings to Australia can seem a confusing process; there are customs formalities that need to be completed on arrival and official forms to be filled in.  The good news is that as you’re shipping outside the EU, you will not have to pay VAT.

Using a Shipping Company

A shipping agent can advise you on whether air freight, road freight or sea freight, or any combination of the three is the best option for you depending on what you need shipped.

Overseas Shipment

Most large households travel by sea and are loaded and sealed within a “sole use” 20ft or 40ft steel shipping container at your home and then delivered directly to the port by the shipping company for shipment.

Smaller consignments are usually packed on site; returned to a warehouse and safely stored for consolidation and shipment with other consignments bound for the same destination (you pay only for the space your effects occupy).
