Shipping companies/costs

    Recommended Posts

    Hi Guys,

     

    I have recently got my visa approved for Australia. I will be shipping approximately 10 large cardboard boxes from Uk to Adelaide.

     

    What companies have you guys used before? Any tips for moving? What would the average price be?

     

    It will be mostly clothes and small items like picture frames. Thanks.

    Check out companies like Seven Seas. They will have boxes so you can work out what size you need (don't forget there are weight limits also) and order and ship as many as you need. It may work out cheaper to have a small move cube or some such over a large amount of boxes being shipped. You can cost it out.

    We've just used Pickfords for our move, won't know how happy we are until our stuff arrives, but no complaints so far. They were not the cheapest but did reduce price to match a competitors post.

    I also used parcel monkey to courier some stuff we needed urgently, 3 boxes with total weight 47kgs cost £250 and beat us here! Just watch out you need to specify and cost contents and anything over £1000 could attract duty, but shouldn't be an issue if you sent each box separately
