Shipping from Australia to Uk
The UK is a very popular destination for our clients. Just as we have many Brits moving to Australia so we have many moving to the United Kingdom. Of courses they are not all British many Australians and other nationalities living in Australia need to move to the UK. We do not offer a full international moving service any more for a number of reasons. International moving is a very competitive market in Australia and we have found a specialist place in the budget side of the market for people who are happy to pack and load their own container. Just because it’s budget doesn’t mean that it is a risky or low quality service, most of our clients pack better than a crew of removalists.

Clearing your goods in the UK?
Clearance process for quarantine in the UK are nowhere near as strict as they are in Australia and New Zealand but they do conduct random inspections both for customs and quarantine. Usually you can have the container delivered from the wharf to either a residence or a facility. We would recomend you get a few quotes from brokers in the UK to facilitate the clearance of your container and generally stay away from removalists if possible.
