Shipping Companies - moving your goods to Adelaide and South Australia


One of the most important aspects of your new life abroad once you have your visa sorted out will be transferring your life to the other side of the world. Get yourself organised for your new life. Shutting down your life in the Uk before starting your new life in Australia can be confusing and stressful.

This may not be as daunting as it sounds with the services of a professional shipping company. They will come in and pack your belongings into a container to be delivered at your new destination. We would recommend getting at least 3 quotes from separate shipping companies to compare prices and services offered. Download our checklist to help get organised and our questionnaire to assist you out with questions to ask during your shipping quote visit.

You will have the choice of sole use of a 20 or 40ft container or 'groupage' where you can share the container space with others. The other options of course are to pack your own container which saves money or ship just a few items over and start from scratch. Check the AQIS website below to see restrictions on what cannot be taken in your container and what needs to be cleaned for inspection. Looking through the AQIS site below could save you hundreds of dollars on unnecessary cleaning or destruction fees should you ship prohibited items. Your shipping company will be able to guide you on what you cannot ship but it pays to be prepared and know for yourself.

Shipping companies will offer marine insurance as an extra to the shipping costs to insure your container and it's contents during transit. You can also but this insurance independently so ensure you get quotes to compare the different services as the prices can differ by quite a lot.
