Shipping From the UK to Australia
Glorious sunshine. Stunning beaches. A famously laid back lifestyle…
Who wouldn’t want to move to Australia?
Of course, it’s not always as simple as buying a plane ticket. For people with established lives here in the UK, moving to Australian cities like Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane is a major undertaking. Throw a family, a pet and a lifetime of personal possessions into the mix, and the shipping process becomes quite the challenge.
That’s where we come in. As a professional international moving company, we take care of the hard stuff so you can hit the beach, fire up the BBQ and soak up the sun from the moment you land.
Helping Brits switch hemispheres
Every year, the ONS estimates that more than 300,000 Brits emigrate overseas. Of these, a huge 43,000 are shipping goods Down Under bound. That’s a lot of boxes to tape up, and house – we estimate 100,000 20ft shipping containers per year head to Australia from the UK.
As the UK’s number one international removals company, we take switching hemispheres seriously. So seriously, that we assign every client with their own personal shipping coordinator. Throughout the international moving process, they’re on hand to organise pickups/drop offs, answer questions, deal with red tape and ensure that the client enjoys a stress free experience. After all, there are oceans to be crossed.
No one knows better than us that moving to Australia goes hand in hand with complexities that just don’t apply to domestic moves. That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of services designed to meet the needs of Brits shipping to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and other major Australian cities.
Our international removals and shipping services cover all bases, and are designed to make your move as smart, safe and smooth as possible. Here’s a glimpse at what’s on offer:

Your possessions are our possessions
We understand that when it comes to moving house, a major concern is whether possessions may get damaged or lost along the way. As the crow flies, there are almost 10,000 miles between the UK and Australia. This is much further than the average domestic move, and opens up a lot more risks when it comes to damage and loss.
That’s why to us, shipping your possessions are our possessions.
No matter what you’re putting in a shipping container, we’ll always do our absolute best to ensure that it arrives at your new doorstep just as you left it. Whether you’re transporting family heirlooms, hand carved furniture or your beloved golden retriever, you can rest assured that your belongings are in the hands of removal experts who care.
Our Aussie shipping price promise
We get that shipping from the UK to Australia isn’t cheap. Given the scale of the move, shipping possessions is usually the biggest expense. That’s why we offer a ‘true blue’ Aussie price promise to every customer. We’re proud of our competitive pricing, so if you receive a cheaper quote from another professional removals company we’ll do everything we can to not just match, but beat it.
