First, determine what you want to ship.
Some things you will leave behind, but some things you will want to bring with you to your new home in Australia. If you own a car, trucks, boat, or motorcycle you will need to decide whether you will leave them with friends or family, sell them, or ship them to Australia. If you do wish to keep the items you can’t take with you on the plane, you can ship them to Australia with our international freight shipping service. You can find useful tips on how to successfully plan your international move in our overseas moving shipping guide.
