Shipping and Removals in Sydney

Expats anticipating shipping items to Sydney should note that it’s important to find a reliable, trustworthy and established business to move valuable household contents. Full liability cover is essential, and it is advised to utilise a company that will complete a thorough survey of the home and contents to provide a realistic estimate of shipping costs.

Shipping household goods to Sydney

When shipping one's possessions to Australia, there are many customs regulations that must be taken into account.

Anyone importing goods to Australia for the first time may approach the Department of Immigration and Border Protection for guidance on how to gather the required documentation, such as invoices, an air waybill or bill of lading, a packing list and insurance documents.

Shipping pets to Sydney

Shipping pets to Sydney necessitates careful planning and depending on their country of origin, pets may be subject to quarantine. Only cats, dogs and horses from selected countries will be allowed into Australia, while rabbits and birds can only be brought into the country if they are from New Zealand. It's also worth mentioning that some dog breeds, such as pit bull terriers, are considered "dangerous" and cannot be brought into Australia at all. As this can be a complex issue, expats bringing their furry friends along should consider enlisting the help of a pet relocation specialist.
