Shipping and International Removals to Australia | Expert International Movers to Australia
Australia remains the top destination for Brits moving to live abroad, a recent study conducted by Lloyds Banks discovered back in the summer of 2015. Over the past five years over 200,000 UK citizens have upped sticks and headed Down Under with Melbourne being the most popular city destination.
Perhaps these figures should come as no surprise, after all, Australia ranked as the happiest country in the world from 2010-2013, according to the OECD’s Better Life Index, and since then it has consistently remained in the top ten countries, ranking particularly highly for health and wellbeing, life expectancy, family life and individual freedom.

To a man they were hard working, tidy and cheerful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The fact that we did not suffer a single breakage (not even a crack to the 50 or so large stem glasses!) is testament to their diligence in packing carefully and safely. We have been hugely impressed throughout the entire process and offer our sincere thanks to you all.” – Rod Bransgrove

Shipping to Australia – The Basics
In order to begin planning for your move from the abroad or from UK to Australia we would need a copy of the consignee’s passport and proof of residence. Once we have this we can start to make all the necessary arrangements for shipping your goods. Shipping takes between 4-6 weeks for a full container. A cheaper option is to share space in a shipping container but the journey can then take between 10-12 weeks.
