Relocating can be stressful, so it's important to have the right service provider to assist in the relocation process. It is also essential that expats know about the customs regulations and restrictions on certain goods prior to shipping any household contents.
Besides the actual shipping and transit times, expats must also allow time for customs clearance and delivery. Advice should be available through a shipping and removals company.
Expats should be aware that all household goods and personal effects will be subject to customs inspection and clearance. Items that have been owned for 12 months or less will be under more intense scrutiny, but will not necessarily be subject to customs fees.
Shipping pets to Melbourne may require quarantine and necessitates careful planning. It is recommended expats enlist the help of a pet relocation specialist.
