hello everyone! We will be arriving in December. We want to ship some of our basic stuff (books, small kitchen appliances, diving equipment, linens etc) by air cargo using emirates or singapore airlines since we do not need a container as not getting our furniture. But all the little things add up in cost so we thought we would take some stuff and then buy the bulky furniture new when we arrive.
The companies that will fly this aircargo and release it from our airport know all info from the outbound airport but have no idea what happens on the other side in oz. I saw online in Australia customs website that everyone has the right as a PR to ship personal stuff and they call it UPEs and we have to fill in a declarartion form.
But all logistics are not clear!
Did anyone ship by air a few cartons? If so, Where do we collect the stuff??
Did you pay anything for release and customs on australia side?
Do we have to collect it immediately?( it reaches in three days not like the shipping containers).
What companies did you use??
Any info would be highly appreciated!!
Thankyou very much
