Choosing a sole use container to ship your household goods to Australia has several benefits:
Space: With this option you have sole-use of your own dedicated 20ft or 40ft container. The ideal option for those shipping larger quantities of belongings, such as the contents of a 3-5 bed home. For reference, a 3 bed home can typically fit in a 20ft container once packed. For 4-5 bed house moves we typically recommend 40ft containers.
Speed: Once your container is loaded, we immediately book it onto the next available vessel for shipping to Australia.
Security: All containers are security sealed and tracked from the moment of departure. Your belongings remain untouched until arrival. You can track your container on it's journey from the UK to Australia and delivery to your door can be arranged.
Shipping your household goods in a shared container, often referred to as a "groupage" service, also has a number of advantages:
Ideal for Smaller Moves: Perfect for those shipping less than the contents of a 3 bed house as it allows you to share container space with other smaller shipments.
Cost effective: Sharing container space also means sharing the cost of the container, making it the most cost-effective option if you do not require the space of a full 20ft or 40ft container.
Secure Professional Packing: All shared container shipments are meticulously packed and palletised to protect your belongings during the shipping process, and to ensure easy handling and clear identification of your shipment from others. This also allows for more accurate billing. You only pay for the exact space that your pallet requires.
Australia has several significant ports that serve as the main hubs for container shipping. These ports play a crucial role in the country's trade and commerce by handling millions of Twenty-foot Equivalent Units (TEUs) each year.
