Transport methods for shipping items to Australia

There are two ways to send items to Australia from the UK. You can decipher the most appropriate transit method for you on four main factors – consignment size, urgency, budget and location.

There are lots of different reasons why you may be shipping goods to Australia. You might be moving down under, staying in Australia for a while or sending a present to surprise a loved one. That’s why we give customers a choice when it comes to transit methods. The right choice for you will depend on your budget, end location and schedule.

Groupage (GRP): If you are shipping small items or the contents of a small apartment, flat, a small office or even just large furniture items from your house – GRP is the best option for you. Your effects are stowed and secured within a shared container and you will only pay for the space your possessions use up.

Full Container Load (FCL): FCL is the favoured option for those shipping an entire home or large work offices. You will be charged for a 20ft or 40ft container depending on the volume of your international removals and you won’t share the container with any other customers.
