About Australia

Australia – or perhaps more commonly referred to as OZ, or the Land Down Under, just so happens to be one of the most popular holiday and emigration destinations in the world. Each and every year, thousands of people travel to and from Australia for numerous reasons; whether it’s to relocate, work, study abroad, or to simply enjoy a relaxing holiday.

5 most popular destinations in Australia:

  • Sydney
  • Brisbane
  • Cairns
  • Perth
  • Gold Coast

Without a doubt, Australia is by far the place to go if you’re seeking a different, adventurous kind of holiday. As well, it’s the perfect location to start a new life for you and your family. With many great universities, it’s also a fantastic place to further your academic horizons. With favourable temperatures throughout the year, vast and varied landscapes, unique wildlife and white-sand beaches; Australia is a one-of-a-kind destination.

Check out our ultimate guide on relocating to Australia!

There is an abundance of things to see and do in Australia, from visiting famous landmarks to snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef. It’s the perfect destination if you crave the adrenaline rush of extreme sports; or if you simply crave relaxing, quality time at the beach. The beaches in Australia range from epic, to downright heavenly. The Twelve Apostles in Victoria, Australia is undeniably one of the most spectacular stretches of coast to be found anywhere on earth. Or you could try the white-sand and palm-studded islands of Queensland. Even the big city beaches are great – and how many places can say that?

Why Send Your Bags Ahead To Australia?

Not to mention, when you book a bag on your flight, you need to keep in mind your airline’s restrictive, less-than-generous baggage weight allowances when packing up all of your things. It means you may have to make the sacrifice that no one wants to make; leaving many of your beloved personal belongings behind. Even then, you might still get a nasty surprise at the check-in desk, meaning you’ll have to cough up extortionate excess baggage fees. When travelling long-haul, for any period of time, it’s just not ideal.

Thankfully, My Baggage allows you to ship a massive 30kg/66lbs per suitcase at fantastic low rates. You also have the option to pay extra for even heavier bags, if you need to. That means you’ll never have to leave any of your beloved possessions behind again.

If you’re a student travelling to Australia to study abroad, or perhaps if you are emigrating with your family; our generous baggage weight allowance and your ability to send as many items as you like with us can come in particularly useful. It allows you to bring more possessions with you than if you were simply relying on a few checked pieces of luggage.

Shipping your excess baggage to Australia with My Baggage also makes that dreaded, tedious wait for the appearance of your suitcase at the luggage carousel in the airport a thing of the past. (Not to mention the possibility of your suitcase not appearing at all, which is every traveller’s worst nightmare!) My Baggage ships your luggage quickly and safely.

Shipping To Australia

With My Baggage, you can ship goods to Australia quickly, conveniently and at a low cost. Although we specialise in luggage shipping, we can help you to transport all kinds of goods.

Send Boxes To Australia

Perhaps you have a loved one living in Australia, or perhaps you are living in Australia with family residing overseas; why not send a care-package with My Baggage? At My Baggage, we don’t just ship personal effects and suitcases across the water – we can send parcels and gifts, too. Before you place your booking, be sure to do some research into Australian customs and quarantine; particularly when it comes to sending gifts. Make sure you invest in a new sturdy, double-walled (or even triple-walled) cardboard box and cushion items with plenty of internal packaging so as to avoid any damage in transit.

Shipping Oversized Items To Australia

Transporting oversized items such as bicycles and golf clubs internationally to a destination such as Australia can a head-scratch. On the surface, it can seem like a difficult process; not to mention an expensive one. Thankfully, My Baggage can help.

For example, there are a number of great golf courses to enjoy in Australia, such as Alice Springs, Macquarie Links and Sanctuary Lakes. Rather than having to rent your gear when you get there, My Baggage allows you to transport oversized items such as golf clubs all the way to Australia so that you can use and enjoy your very own equipment.

Shipping your oversized item to Australia with My Baggage is the easiest way to avoid extortionate oversized/overweight baggage fees from your airline. We help you to avoid having to haul your bicycle or similarly oversized item from home and through train stations, taxis and airports. Sending oversized items with My Baggage is an efficient and cost-effective way of getting your items to their overseas destination quickly and safely.

Most common oversized items sent to Australia:

  • Bicycles
  • Golf clubs
  • Sporting equipment
  • Musical instruments

Note: if you are shipping your bicycle to Australia with My Baggage, it will need to be dismantled and packaged up in a box so that we can transport it easily and safely. Your local bicycle shop should be more than happy to do this for you for a small fee.

Student Shipping To Australia

Whether you’re off to Australia to study abroad for the duration of your degree course, for an academic year, or even just a term; you can send everything you need straight to your new home on campus with My Baggage. Perhaps you’re off to study at the University of Melbourne, or the University of Sydney.

5 Tips For Shipping Luggage To Australia:

  • Find a reputable international removals/shipping service.
  • Don’t stop there, either – obtain more than one quote and compare.
  • Choose a service with transit times that best suit your needs.
  • Do your research on Australian quarantine and customs.
  • Package all items securely with plenty of internal cushioning.

Other Ways Of Getting Your Belongings To Australia

Of course, shipping your luggage via My Baggage isn’t the only way to get all of your personal belongings to Australia. If you need to transport your things to Australia, you should make yourself aware of the numerous options available; after all, some options will suit your personal needs better than others. Here are just a few alternative options:

International Removals

If you and your family are emigrating to Australia to begin and new life, and perhaps have a lot of possessions to bring; such as furniture, as well as an abundance of personal belongings – you might consider transporting everything with an international removals company. This means you can transport all of your worldly belongings in one go.

Sea Freight

Perhaps you don’t have an entire household of belongings to ship to Australia; but you do have a number of exceptionally large items you wish to transport, such as a sofa, a fridge, or even a car, for example. Your items will be shipped via cargo shops in large shipping containers. Therefore, it’s important to note that shipping your belongings by sea freight can be an exceptionally slow voyage, meaning you will be without your belongings for quite some time. Depending on the service, you could be waiting for up to two months.

Sea freight is generally much cheaper than its alternative, air freight. However, as well as the transit times, you need to consider the transportation of your items to and from the ports, both departing and upon arrival in Australia. Therefore, costs can mount up.

Air Freight

Similar to sea freight, shipping your items to air freight allows you to send exceptionally large, bulky items that may be otherwise difficult to transport to a destination such as Australia. Although much faster than sea freight; as air freight is typically charged by weight and volume, it tends to be a much more expensive option of shipping. Similar to sea freight, you also need to consider the transportation of your items to and from airports.

Australian Customs Information

When shipping items to Australia, you are legally required to complete and send a customs invoice with your shipment. Whether you’re sending personal effects or a care package as a gift; if your shipment does not have a customs invoice attached, it will not make it past your local country border, and you may have to pay return charges to get it back. My Baggage will automatically provide you with the appropriate customs documents for you to complete, print and sign when you send your luggage to Australia with us.

Generally, My Baggage shipments clear customs in a timely manner, free from duties and taxes, as most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects. However, as customs processes and allowances are different around the world, and because My Baggage has no association with any customs authority; we do advise doing your own personal research into Australian customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment to Australia. Please make yourself aware of potential customs duties in Australia and be sure to follow any and all advice provided by customs directly.

It is important to be aware that any shipments containing any restricted items such as foodstuffs, seeds/nuts or wooden products may result in the shipment having to be cleared by Australian quarantine, which can result in customs delays and charges.

Shipping Gifts To Australia

Thinking of sending a gift to a loved one in Australia? Gifts worth up to the value of $1000 are permitted to enter Australia free from duty and tax. Do note that all shipments, regardless of gift status, are subject to inspection by Australian Customs & Agriculture.

Prohibited Items, Non-Compensation Items and Packaging

My Baggage provides a convenient shipping service to Australia for your personal effects, which means you can send almost anything that you would typically find in your suitcase when travelling.

However, there are certain items that are known as Prohibited Items, which cannot be shipped to Australia on our service. There’s also certain items that are known as Non-Compensation Items, which can be sent on our service, but will not be covered by our compensation cover.

Below we have outlined important information about Prohibited Items, Non-Compensation Items, and recommendations for Packaging. Please review this carefully before placing your order.

My Baggage Packaging
There are a number of Prohibited Items that cannot be sent using our service. You can view them
here.
Sending a Prohibited Item to Australia will result in your shipment being returned to its original collection address, to which additional shipment fees will apply. In rare instances, depending on what the Prohibited Item is, the shipment may be disposed of.
There are certain items that can be sent on our service, however, they are classed as ‘Non-Compensation’ items. This means that they aren’t covered by our compensation cover. If you choose to send a non-compensation item on our service, this will be done at your own risk. Please also ensure that they are packaged securely and appropriately.
If a Prohibited Item is sent, it also falls under the category of 'Non-Compensation item'. You can view our full list
here.
When sending Personal Effects to Australia with us, we recommend using suitcases, or strong double-walled boxes that will be suitable for transit. If you are sending fragile or delicate items, we recommend using internal packaging to protect them during transit. You can use materials such as bubble wrap or newspapers.

Please do not use Plastic Boxes, Bin Bags, or Laundry Bags, as these are not suitable and would be considered as inappropriate packaging.

You should also avoid using fragile or expensive suitcases. Remember, packaging is a non-compensation item, and is not covered under our compensation cover.
