Sea or Air Freight?

We can also arrange storage for any items you wish to keep in Ireland or ship to storage in Australia. If there are any prohibited items, our foreman will bring this to your attention.
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.
