Frequently asked questions when arranging a move to Australia

Just because you are moving to Australia it shouldn’t mean you have to sacrifice your personal possessions and household goods. In our many years as an established removal company to Australia, we have mastered the art of shipping just about everything as part of our international removals to Australia service.

Throughout the years we have sent everything from: clothes and shoes, beds and wardrobes, fridges and freezers, sofas and armchairs, frames and artwork, mirrors and pictures, camping equipment, sports equipment, musical instruments and beyond.

Australia, much like every country, has a list of restricted and prohibited items that you won’t be able to take with you, unfortunately. However, if Australia allows it – we will ship it!

For a comprehensive list of items you can or cannot send as part of your removals from the UK to Australia, your moving coordinator will be able to help.

Our international removals to Australia services can often be amended to accommodate a varying range of client budgets and time frames. We can send removals to Australia using air freight or sea freight vessels, although sea freight is the most commonly used transport method for large domestic and commercial removals.

Australian removals using the air freight method are recommended for smaller since air freight costs are calculated based on the weight of your removals, so air freight can become quite an expensive transport method for removals from the UK to Australia. However, the average delivery period for airfreight consignments is 7 to 10 days.

If you are looking for cheap international removals to Australia from the UK, we would always suggest one of our sea freight solutions. If the size of your removals is reserved, you can use our shared option. Your removal will be assesses, packed and loaded onto shipping container that is shared with other customers and you will only pay for the space your items occupy within said container, based on their cubic volume.

Alternatively, for larger home removals or commercial removals to Australia, a dedicated shipping container removal is ideal. You will pay one flat rate for a 20ft or 40ft shipping container that is for your exclusive use and you can fill the container how you wish – even with a vehicle!

The economical shipping method means you will have to wait slightly longer, but it is highly recommended for full removals and those looking for a money saving removals option. Sea freight delivery on average takes 6 to 8 weeks

Your move coordinator will be able to discuss our international removals services with you in greater detail, discuss the best option for your requirements and provide you with a removals to Australia quote.

As a committed team of international removalists from UK to Australia, we always go the extra mile for our customers. Moving overseas can be a stressful undertaking to begin with, let alone with removals in tow, so our mission is to take charge of the process and ease the tension.

Melbourne, Victoria

Melbourne is the hip and individual second city of Australia, widely known for its flourishing food, arts and culture scene. If you are a fan of partying, you will find that some of Australia’s best nightlife is in Melbourne, as well of a vast range of music festivals, performing arts events and of course – some of the best dining establishments. The Economist quite often rates Melbourne as the most liveable city in the WORLD, so we’d be very surprised if you had a bad time. Although Melbourne has four distinct seasons, it is quite well known to also experience all “four seasons in a day,” so be prepared!

Sydney, New South

Wales We are sure you were already expecting this one, but Sydney is here with good reason. For many people, Sydney is the first city that many people think of when they hear ‘Australia,’ thanks to its iconic landmarks and golden beaches. Sydney really is world-famous. With close to five million residents, the vibrant metropolitan is Australia’s most populated city, favoured by natives, expats and young travellers alike. The city is bustling for the most part, but there are a lot of quieter and more tranquil neighbourhoods for those looking to wind down.

Brisbane, Queensland

Brisbane is a quirky and eccentric cosmopolitan city and it is bursting at the seams with diversity, whether this is of its residents, culture, arts communities and even its social scenes. The city is a notable business hub in Australia, with a number of industries such as I.T, finance and the public sector exceeding all expectations. If you are moving to Brisbane with children, good new… the city takes the education of its youth extremely seriously, so you will find a plethora of nationally and internationally acclaimed schools within the city.

Adelaide, South Australia

If you are looking a city that offers a strong economy and high employment rates, look no further than Adelaide, South Australia. The city is flourishing with career and educational successes, but they still know how to have fun in Adelaide. The city is diverse and celebrates uniqueness, with its residents coming from all cultures, all walks of life, all ethnicities and each is welcomed with open arms. Adelaide appreciates art in all forms, festivals and a good bit of entertainment.

Gold Coast, Queensland

The Gold Coast appeals to everybody of ALL ages, so it has grown to be a popular city of choice amongst families. The Gold Coast boasts approximately 43 miles of beaches and thanks to its very mild climate, almost every day is the perfect beach day! There are a number of national parks and wildlife sanctuary’s if you like to be with nature, but if you are more of a thrill seeker, there is no shortage of theme parks and water parks in the Gold Coast. Even though the Gold Coast is well-known for its chilled vibe, the nightlife scene is certainly a lively one.

Great Barrier Reef

We couldn’t have a list of the best Australian attractions without the Great Barrier Reef. We would be lying if we left it out! The Great Barrier Reef could well be regarded as the best destination in the world for lovers of the ‘big blue,’ with over 2900 coral reefs and innumerable islands. You can explore the reef on a boat cruise but we think the best way is scuba diving, especially if you want to catch a good view of the fascinating sea creatures that lurk around the reef.


Uluru, formerly known as Ayres Rock, is one of the most instantly recognisable Australian landmarks. The vibrant red sandstone formation is one of Australia’s top tourist attractions but with good reason. Uluru is a sacred site to Anangu, a local Aboriginal tribe, situated in the heart of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. The best way to appreciate and learn about the sacred rocks is through a tour around the park with an Aboriginal guide or ranger.

Daintree National Park

Daintree National Park is a world heritage site that is one of the oldest ecosystems on earth. The area is property of the Kuku Yalanji Aboriginees and it is believed that many of its features and landmarks hold great spiritual significance. There is two main sections within the park; Mossman Gorge and Cape Tribulation. Mossman Gorge covers an amazing 56,500 hectares of rainforests, woodlands and mountains, and Cape Tribulation consists of 17,000 hectares of more beach and costal scenes.

Sydney Harbour and Sydney Opera House

The Sydney Opera House is an iconic Australian attraction, and usually one of the first things people think of when they hear the word ‘Australia.’ Known to people all around the globe, the instantly recognisable architectural structure is definitely worth a visit, you can take a tour of its cinema, theatres, studios or concert hall. Two birds with one stone, while you are in the area we absolutely recommend that you spend an afternoon strolling the Sydney Harbour. You can explore the harbour on foot, although boat is becoming a much more popular option. You can enjoy stunning scenery at every turn of the head and appreciate a frontal view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Great Ocean Road

Starting in Torquay, Victoria, stretching all the way down to Allansford, the Great Ocean Road is 151 miles of stunning coastal drives and some of the most beautiful scenery in Australia, including the infamous Twelve Apostles – limestone formations that climb out of the ocean. Other sightseeing spots along the mammoth drive include Loch Ard Gorge, London Bridge and the Arch.

If you are moving from the UK to Australia, you will be pleased to know that depending on which state you relocate to, you might just get one or two more bank holidays than you do in England. If you tally up the regional and national public holidays, there are 29 in total. Only six of these are nationwide.

National Public Holidays:

  • 1st January – New Year’s Days
  • 26th January – Australia Day
  • The Friday before Easter Sunday – Good Friday
  • The Monday after Easter Sunday – Easter Monday
  • 25th April – Anzac Day
  • 25th December – Christmas Day


When people think of the Australian climate, most people just imagine hot, hot, hot, but this is not always the case. Due to the sheer size of Australia, the vast country experiences a number of varied climates across the lands.

The northern states and cities of Australia have a more tropical climate and it sees hot and humid summers with generally mild winters and usually dry. Whereas southern Australia is has slightly moderate summers (albeit a lot warmer than our summer in the UK) and mild winters that can get fairly rainy. When you are relocating to Australia it is also worth remembering that UK and Australia’s seasons are opposites, so it’s likely you’ll be having a BBQ on Christmas Day instead of a big old roast.

Your removal to Australia could take between 9 -14 weeks to arrive, depending on your destination and the service you have chosen. Below we have listed the estimated transit times for your shipment.
