Sea or Air Freight?
Depending on the type of goods you wish to ship down under, we offer both sea freight and air freight service. Sea freight is cheaper and appropriate for those without rigid time constraints, and provides both full and shared container load services. Air freight is the fastest way to ship your belongings and is usually more expensive than sea freight. There are several ways to approach air freight and JIT Removals can advise you on the most appropriate solutions based on your specific needs.

What happens when my stuff arrives in Australia?
When you move to Australia, your goods must be cleared by both the Customs and Quarantine services. We are well aware that Australia’s quarantine laws are strict. It is necessary to pay particular attention to any food, animal and plant material you may intend to bring. We would also advise you that you may need to obtain a permit to bring certain goods into Australia. We always suggest that you contact Australian Customs prior to deciding what goods to bring.
