Our box shipping quotes are based on volume and these can be tweaked to suit your individual requirements. The first step is to provide a written quotation, which states the services offered as well as the conditions and exclusions of the contract. Prices will vary depending on whether you are packing your own boxes for shipping, or if you would like your boxes professionally packed by us.

Our professionally trained staff are able to provide a qualified packing service, whereby fragile items are carefully packed and handled. All your personal effects will be placed into double ply export grade cartons, which have been specially designed for the rigours of an international move and are extremely fit for purpose.

Depending on the final destination, for international box shipping to Australia from the UK we suggest a timeframe of approximately 12 weeks. If you need to either reduce or increase delivery times to fit in with your travel arrangements, it is possible to liaise with your allocated Move Manager, who will endeavour to accommodate this.

What if I don’t know when I am moving my boxes?

As a specialist box shipper, we are constantly able to fit clients in at short notice for collection dates. We usually advise giving two weeks’ notice, if possible, but we can accommodate clients on 24 hours’ notice if necessary.

No, we just ask that prior to shipping your boxes from the UK, we are given a contact address plus contact details. Once your boxes have arrived in Australia and have been through the necessary customs clearance and quarantine formalities, it is at this point we will require a delivery address. If you are not in a position to provide one, however, do not worry, as we can arrange storage on your behalf.

Do you offer box insurance?

When it comes to relocation, it is vitally important to consider taking out insurance. If you are packing the boxes yourself, we are able to offer a total loss policy, but if we are professionally packing your boxes for you, then we can provide an all risks marine transit insurance policy. You will be provided with a transit proposal form in your extended quotation. We advise you to read the information carefully, and if you have any questions, please do get in touch. proposal form will be provided with all our quotation extended.

Moving day for my boxes has arrived, so what happens next?

Prior to moving day, our operations team will confirm the date and approximate timescale. Once our team have arrived at your collection address, if we are packing, they will arrive with all the materials required in order for them to complete a professional packing service. If we are collecting owner pre-packed boxes, however, they will prepare the box shipment for transit. These will be checked to ensure they adhere to international moving standards and are in good condition for the journey; if not, we may suggest that we repack for you at an additional cost. For your security and peace of mind, each individual item will be numbered and listed on a specialised inventory form, and a copy will be provided for your records. We will then load our vehicle and return to our depot where we will consolidate your shipment into a groupage/shared container service prior to sending to Australia.

Once my box shipping has arrived in Australia from the UK, what happens next?

Before your consignment arrives in port, you will be contacted, and once it has arrived, we will arrange for your boxes to be customs cleared by Australian Customs and Border Protection Services. To assist us with your clearance, you will be required to complete an unaccompanied effects statement, which is an Australian customs form B534. This can be completed in the UK prior to your departure, or in Australia if you prefer. Do no worry if your boxes arrive in Australia before you do, as a member of your family or a friend in Australia can be assigned to act on your behalf. If you know this is going to be the case, you must complete the Australian customs from B534 yourself before departing the UK. You will also be required to present the following information to Australian Customs. Once customs and quarantine formalities have been completed, we will then require a delivery address for your boxes.

Will there be additional charges to pay?

We base our extended quotation on a door-to-door service, which includes terminals and custom clearance formalities. This does not include, however, customs inspection fees, customs duty or taxes on new goods, or goods that do not meet the unaccompanied effects ruling and the Australian Quarantine inspections (AQIS), which are mandatory in Australia. Australian Quarantine inspection fees are also not included in any of our extended quotations, and these need to be paid directly to our colleagues in Australia.

What about payments and deposits?

Prior to shipping and once the collection date has been agreed between both parties, our booking department will require a 15% deposit to be paid.
