When you move to Australia most of us need to send or take some stuff with us.

Weather its sending a parcel or your personal effect (everything in your home) from New Zealand to Australia here is the information you need to know.

Moving you and your family to Australia

When your moving your whole family to Australia you are bound to have a houselot of furniture and other personal effects that need to go with you. It is certainly cheaper and easier than finding and buying everything you need when you get there.

There are different shipping to Australia options to choose from depending on your need and Ausmove can help you work out which is going to be best for you.

Sole Use or Full Shipping Container

If you have a houselot (three bedrooms or more) that needs to go to Australia with you, then a sole use or a full container will probably be what you need. The container will only have your goods in it. Shipping containers come in two sizes: twenty foot and forty foot. The standard NZ home, three or four bedrooms, will usually fit in a twenty foot container.

Shared Containers

If you don’t have a full houselot or a small one or two bed home, then you can share a container. This means your possessions are put in a container with other people’s possessions. This means you are only charged for the space your belongings take up in the shipping container. This is the most economical way to ship your possessions when you are only shipping a portion of your household furniture or only cartons.

Sending a parcel to Australia

Do you only have a box or two full of your possessions you need to send to Australia? Computer and printer but not a houselot of personal effects. Ausmove can send any size shipment for you with their fast and cost effective air freight service. From NZ to your new front door in Australia.

If you already have your box packed and ready to go, contact Ausmove and you can easily drop it off to them and they can take care of the rest. If you don’t have a box that suitable for international shipping, Ausmove can courier one out to you. Or if you want to added peace of mind, Ausmove can come to you and professionally pack your parcel and take it with them.
