Our team have committed to continue providing the best overseas removals services during these rough times and strive to offer our help and advice for anyone wishing to move to Australia. We have taken measures to ensure the safety of both our staff and customers and we remain open and operating as per government and BAR guidelines, offering the only fully COVID-safe international removals services.
We are the only UK international removals company that offers COVID-safe packing solutions when shipping household goods from the UK to Australia.
Our shrink-wrap packing prevents handling of individual items, ensuring a zero touch delivery and providing the best protection for your goods during your move.
Unlike most movers, we guarantee regular weekly shipments direct from the UK to all main ports in Australia including Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Fremantle - with door to door services available throughout all of Australia.
Once it’s packed we will immediately give you the next available weekly sailing and you can track the container and vessel here.
Thanks to our unique packing procedures, we enjoy the lowest claims record of any removals company. No compromises. We palletise all of your goods together to guarantee that, once packed, items are never handled individually.
Reduced handling means less risks and maximum safety for your move. Moving insurance services are provided by insurance giants Royal Sun Alliance.
We've been in the removals business for over 23 years and we've helped ship countless individuals from the UK to Australia and elsewhere.
Our dedicated team of move managers will guide you through every step of the process and will be on hand to provide advice should you have any questions.

Perfect for smaller moves. We will pick up your stuff, expertly pack it using our COVID Safe packing, then load it within the week on the next UK to Australia shipping vessel.
Our LCL service does not sacrifice speed. We are able to load your hand crafted pallets alongside commercial shipments from large exporters. That means no waiting around for additional customers - your stuff leaves as soon as we've packed it!
Full door to door options are available. We offer collection serivces throughout the whole of the UK and onward delivery at your destination can be arranged with our network of overseas agents.

Are you moving to Australia and want to find out how much it will cost to ship your stuff? We've put together a very simple price guide for international removals and personal effects shipping to Australia.
Short Answer: The cost of international removals from the UK to Australia is between £1,000 and £2,000 depending on the size of your move and your destination. For a detailed cost breakdown please see our table below.
|Destination Port||3 Bed House - 20ft Container
||4-5 Bed House - 40ft Container
Our costs table should be used as a simple guide only. We do not know where you live, where you are going, or how much stuff you have so the costs guide does not include the following charges: UK collection, onward delivery from the port in Australia to your new home, professional packing and loading costs.
Get in touch by completing the simple quote form on this page and we'll be happy to provide a tailored quote with these costs included. Just as a rough estimate, for a 3 bed house from Oxford to Sydney you should budget another £1800.00 to £2000.00 for the transport, packing and unpacking costs.
There is a shipping vessel bound for Australia leaving the UK at least once every 7 days and the port to port transit time is around 40 days depending on your specific destination

Used personal effects are not subject normally to import duties, GST or taxes and we are often asked exactly what constitutes 'Used Personal Effects' from an Australia customs standpoint. The Australia government uses the following criteria when considering what are UPE’s.
UPEs are a special category of imported goods. If certain conditions are met, your UPEs may be customs cleared without requiring you to lodge import declarations or pay duty, Goods and Services Tax (GST) or other taxes and charges. For any used personal effects or household goods to be available for the special concessions you must.
Please note however that Duty, GST/Taxes and/or Wine Equalisation Tax (WET) will be payable if your Used Personal Effects include alcoholic drinks such as wine, beer, spirits or other alcoholic beverages, and/or cigarettes, cigars and other tobacco related products.
Further information on UPE can be found in this PDF document provided by the Australian Customs and Border Protection service.
