Shipping Personal Effects to Australia

International shipping to Australia from NZ can be very cost effective. Oftentimes the cost of repurchasing your personal items greatly outweighs the cost of shipping from NZ to Australia. In addition, a lot of items have special memories and are simply irreplaceable.

At Transworld International Removals we can ship most items anywhere in the world, no matter where they are currently located. Your goods will be individually wrapped and packed with our specialized international wrapping materials and/or boxes and then stowed into a container for shipping.

Sea Freight

FCL - Full Container Load

Transworld offer regular shipping services of FCL containers to all ports in Australia.

If you are shipping a full household you may use the whole container to yourself, there are 20ft and 40ft containers. With this service you have more choice of shipping dates and arrival dates to Australia.

Depending on the access to your home and your street council approval, will depend on whether the container can come direct to your home for loading. Once loaded the container will be sealed and taken directly to the port for shipping to ensure a fast shipping time.

In Australia, the container will then be unloaded at our agents depot for quarantine inspection and then re-loaded back into a container or furniture truck for delivery to your new home.


If you have a small or a part household or just have one or two boxes, you can share the container with our other clients also moving to the same location. This is the most economical way of shipping and our most popular service. This service may take a little longer while we wait to fill the container to your destination but it can be a very cost effective option.

Transworld offer groupage shipping services to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Shipping to Adelaide is less popular and therefore may need to be shipped via Melbourne.

The cost of shipping is based on the cubic volume of your shipment, therefore you only pay for the room that your goods take up in the container.

Air Freight

The cost of air freight is predominantly much more expensive. The price is based on the Volumetric Weight or Actual Weight, whichever is the greater, of the items you wish to send. Although much quicker in transit times, the cost needs to be considered against the urgency required to receive the goods.

Some of our clients will send a small shipment by airfreight for essential items that they cannot do without whilst waiting for their sea freight to arrive with the rest of their effects.
