Relocation & Shipping for Expats in Melbourne

Moving your possessions to Melbourne may seem like a daunting task but it doesn’t have to be. Engaging the services of a professional relocations company will ensure your move is stress free.

Key relocation & shipping tips you should know as an expat in Melbourne
  • Australia has strict quarantine rules, be sure you understand how this applies to the goods you are moving Melbourne.
  • Any household or personal items deemed to be contaminated, will be fumigated, steam-cleaned, gamma-irradiated or destroyed. This will incur a fee.
  • Be aware that your shipment must be cleared by both Customs and Quarantine before delivery can be arranged.
  • Keep in mind any household goods or personal items owned for less than 12 months prior to moving may be subject to Goods and Services tax (GST). It’s advisable to keep receipts and invoices to show values involved.
  • Items assessed for duty/GST, payment must be made to Customs prior to the release of your belongings.
  • If you plan to bring the family car, new or second-hand, a permit will be needed and paperwork must be completed prior to shipping. Otherwise it may be rejected, whereby you will need to cover the re-export costs and possible fines.
  • If you are moving your pet – it’s best to engage the services of a specialist pet moving company.
