Shipping from the UK to Australia

Shipping such a long distance requires:

  • thorough planning

  • extensive logistical capabilities

That is what ParcelABC excels in: making professional decisions at a high level in these areas. We are motivated to help a sender find the best shipping solution for his or hers parcel. Whether it is determining the quickest route or the cheapest option, shipping from the UK to Australia is our specialty.

Remember that according to both the UK’s and Australian laws, a person cannot send:

  • Any military grade items unless certified by according governmental institutions (but such certification is highly unlikely)

  • live animals

  • fresh vegetables or fruits

  • uncanned meat

  • dairy goods

unless you are doing a commercial import, which requires obtaining an import permit.

Before you ship a package from the United Kingdom to Australia, make sure you understand the responsibilities outlined by the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources. Any eco-system impacting object (food, pet, animal…) will likely be denied entry because of the feared damage to the environment. Shipments must also be declared to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. Any food imported has to fit the standards.

Regarding the UK originated parcels, Australian postage experts suggest using a clean container, providing the right set of documentation, maybe even a few excess document copies in order to be reassured and choosing your packaging materials wisely. ParcelABC would like to add that you can also decide the best way to ship your package on our website. Fill in the quote to get suggestions for shipments and compare the prices between the services of various couriers and postal companies.

Upon arrival, shipments are inspected by one or two institutions. First of all, the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources of Australia check the declarations and the documents. If you are sending something precious which you don’t want to be opened pre-delivery, make sure that the postage documents are accurate, and the department officers have no reason to open up the parcel. Imported items “that do not meet import requirements and cannot be treated are directed for export or disposal at the importer’s expense”, so be careful and follow the guidelines we describe here or contact our team directly by e-mail so you would not be charged for these services.

The DAWR usually clears the packages if the documentation is accurate, but if there are suspicions, the customs have to step in.

Once the package gets cleared, it is easy sailing from there on. Qualified and very professional companies will handle your parcel on the soil of Australia. Shipping from the UK to Australia requires your decision on the courier and postal service for shipment handling. ParcelABC takes pride in giving the customer the decision for the best way to ship his or hers packet. Choose from the options available and contact our team if any questions occur.
