Shipping abroad can be complex with each country’s customs requirements and local regulations being different. The precise cost for shipping or air freight will depend on the exact size (and sometimes the weight) of your consignment.

We recommend air freight if you require your effects promptly. If you wish to ship most or all of your household effects we recommend the use of a dedicated container for your removals to Australia.

For smaller shipments, we recommend our part load (groupage) service as the most practical and cost effective option. The exact price will depend on the cubic capacity, container size, and service required. Part loads will be returned to our warehouse for consolidation and loading. Full load containers can be loaded directly at your home if the access allows.

Our expert packing service provides a detailed inventory for customs and is suitable for use with ‘all risk’ marine insurance cover.

Over the years Australia has welcomed immigration from many different nationalities and it is now one of the most popular destinations for Brits looking to relocate abroad. This is no surprise when you consider its diverse climates, 21,000 miles of breathtaking coastline and its vibrant, carefree culture. Australia also boasts some of the best healthcare facilities in the world in both the public and private schemes. A large number of British expats relocating to Australia are young families looking to take advantage of Australia’s larger properties, excellent schools and plethora of outdoor pursuits. Australia is also a popular destination with UK pensioners looking to spend their retirement in the year round Australian sunshine.

Australia is the sixth largest country on the planet and is made up of diverse climates and vast landscapes. At over 30 times the size of the UK with only one third of its population it is no wonder why so many Brits are choosing to move to Australia. Due to its size and the long transit period from the UK we recommend you use our airfreight service for essential items and have your non-essential items shipped by seafreight. Australia is divided into six states (New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania) and two territories (Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory). Some of the most popular cities with British expats include Sydney, Adelaide, Canberra, Melbourne and Perth.

Australia is well known for its stringent customs and quarantine procedures. These measures are in place to protect Australia’s unique biodiversity and ecosystems but they can sometimes be hard to navigate. However, there is no need to worry with Matthew James Removals, as we are on hand – along with our dedicated agent network of Australia’s finest moving companies – to help you with full Australian customs clearance assistance. Further information on Australia customs can be found on the Australian Immigration website.

There are various visas available for people looking to relocate to Australia. The main visa categories include Skilled Independent Migration, Employer Nomination Scheme and Business Migration, while there are also retirement visas for those aged 55 and over. Further visa details can be found using Australia’s Department of Immigration Visa Wizard. While you will still be able to claim your UK state pension once in Australia the value will be frozen at the value it was when you arrived. This is because there is currently no social security agreement between Australia and the UK, although ongoing talks between the two countries suggest that this may change in the near future.
