Shipping Costs to Australia: What to Know


The prevalence of e-commerce and the globalization of commerce through
trade are the factors that promote the relevance of the shipping industry
in moving one item to another from the point of origin to its destination.
The trade happens within a country, an island or from one country to another.
It is not anymore surprising to many that shipping costs can be expensive.
However, the costs can vary greatly because of these factors:

1. Size and weight of the object for shipment


If you are shipping an item that is the size of jewelry placed inside
a box to Australia, the cost may not be that considerable compared to
shipping a car.

Size really matters because the bulk is taken into consideration, particularly
when they occupy a big portion in the contained van for shipment.

Weight is also a factor in shipping cost.
The heavier the shipment, the higher would be the cost in shipping.

2. Value


Even if the dimension of the jewelry box may be smaller than the size
of a gift box with a shirt inside it, the cost would still be more for
the first item which value is three times or more than what is inside
a larger gift box.

Similar situation can be exemplified in importing cars to Australia. The
custom duties of a luxury car may be greater than a brand new sedan.

3. Mode of shipment


If you avail a door-to-door shipment method, you are likely to pay more
than you would if you bring an item to the kiosk or shipping office.

Moreover, shipment via air carrier can be way more expensive compare to
shipment by sea. However, the aircraft shipment can be received in fewer
days than it would if a shipment is made by a marine vessel.

4. The type of goods to be shipped


Importing vehicles will have to go through more agencies and lengthy procedures
than shipping other consumer items. Though this is to be the expected
because of the complexity of vehicles, it is to be noted that the shipments
will take more days. Take these into consideration along with the complication
in processing. Then take a dose of patience and a whole lot of preparation
before shipping an item you deemed to be controlled extensively.

5. Destination


Generally, you’ll pay less if you’re shipping items to Australia’s most
accessible cities like Perth and Sydney. You’ll need to pay more if you’re
sending packages to their provinces or places considered to be remote.


Shipping costs really vary with those factors mentioned. Be sure to ask
the shipping service provider the fees that correspond to the item and
other factors. You may avail of a free price quote online or obtain one
from shipping company near you. Fees can vary from one shipper to another
so you may have to shop around and compare not only fees but services
as well.

Make sure you are prepared for the big cost if an item is valuable, bulky
and will likely be controlled by Australian Port Authorities.
