Moving to Australia is a big decision and you have plenty to think about - new jobs, a new home and school for the kids.

The last thing you want to stress about is how to get your precious possessions there in one piece - this is where we come in.

There are different shipping options to choose from depending on your need and we can help you work out which is going to be best for you.  We also provide quality packing services to make sure your possessions arrive in one piece.

Because air freight is the most expensive option, it may not be practical to freight a whole or part of a house this way, so shipping by sea will be the best option.

Sole Use or Full Shipping Container

You can have a whole shipping container for your sole use. This would be the case if you are shipping a whole three bedroom house full of furniture and possessions. The container will only have your goods in it regardless of whether you fill the container completely or not.

Shipping containers come in two sizes only, twenty foot and forty foot. Generally speaking the average three or four bedroom home will take up a twenty foot shipping container.

If you have a three bedroom home but have a lot of doubled-up furniture, for example two lounge suites or a lot of bulky outdoor furniture, you may need to cull some items to fit it all into a twenty foot shipping container. But this is the exception rather than the norm, so it is safe to say that the average three or four bedroom home with all the furniture being shipped will need a twenty foot container.

Shared Containers

The great thing at Ausmove is that we provide a shared container shipping service.

This means your possessions are put into a container with other people's possessions - handy if you are not taking the entire contents of your home.

And you will only be charged based on what space your belongings take up in the shipping container. So this the most economical way to ship your possessions when you are only shipping a portion of your household furniture or only cartons. It may take a little longer to arrive than if you have a container all to yourself
