Moving to Australia

If you are moving from the US to Australia, it would be a completely new experience for you if if you are relocating for the first time. International moving means that all your belongings have to be shipped overseas, which means that packing and shipping has to be done with great care. The whole procedure can be quite tiresome especially with all the paperwork involved. Also, some federal trade regulations have to be followed. Above all, the cost of logistics can be difficult to judge at first. Mover New York can help you out with all the bureaucratic details, as they are experts when in it comes to international moving.

Once it is finalized that you are moving to Australia, the first thing to do is to make a list of all the belongings that you want shipped. If you have vehicles in your list, there is a lot of paperwork involved. Also, the rules for shipping cars and for shipping your belongings are not the same. For example, if you ship your car to Australia, make sure that it is thoroughly cleaned, otherwise it will be sent back immediately, and you will have to bear the cost. Once you have prepared a final list, you can book the container to Australia.

Of course a shipping list will help you determine the size of the container, and when you ask for online price quotes, the list can be a great help as well. All your household belongings except the car have to be fitted into shipping containers. Containers are available in various sizes and you can rent the container that you require. They look like massive bin boxes and can be used for storage as well, in case the shipping from the US to Australia is delayed. If you are unsure about the correct size of the container required for your specific purposes, consult the professionals at Mover New York.

In order to get an approximate shipping quote from the US to Australia, you need to browse through several websites offering shipping services. That is why it is necessary for you to measure all your furniture with a measuring tape, so that you can have a fair idea of the number of boxes that you will need.

Compare prices during your extensive online research, and once you have found the suitable company, book the container and finalize the shipping dates. There are certain arrangements which may be necessary, and you have to work out the details - for example, decide where the packing of the container will take place: whether it will be done outside your home or at the container terminal. If it is the latter, you will require a truck to take your belongings to the container terminal, and you will also require some help with the packing. The delivery details also need to be looked into.

Label each box according to the contents and number them, because this will make your unpacking easier. And you should plan to be in Australia in time to receive your shipment there. It will add to the excitement of settling down in a new place.
