- Air Freight
- Ocean Freight
Shipping via Air or Ocean is time-consuming as Australia is an individual country far from the USA with no land borders which increases the transit time for cargo. Of course, Airfreight delivers the product quicker than Ocean Freight.
It usually takes 7-10 days for shipping via Air and 90-120 days for ocean shipment. In case you require speedy delivery, there is an option of express shipping via Air.
We highly recommend choosing your mode of shipment based on your needs and requirements. If you have a specific departure time, you can schedule a pickup for your belongings to be shipped 3 months prior to your move which will result in savings as your belongings will be shipped via ocean.
On the other hand, if you have a sudden shipment and need your belongings to be delivered as soon as possible, we highly recommend airfreight for express deliveries.
Custom Department Regulations:
Like NAFTA- North America Free Trade, Australia and USA have an Agreement – the Australia–United States Free Trade Agreement (AUSFTA). According to the agreement, there is in and out free trade between both countries without any objections. This indicates that custom duties, tariffs, taxes will be cut down, compared to other foreign countries.
It is to be noted that tariffs and taxes might have some variation. Custom duty is just 5% of the total value of the items being shipped. Calculating customs duty and handling fees are time-consuming. So plan out your shipment and calculate your costs and time limits well in advance.
Prohibited items for shipment:
Following the government guidelines for shipment from USA to Australia, certain items are strictly prohibited from transporting. “Illegal drugs, weapons, live or dead animals, any sort of fireworks or explosives, Rough diamonds, indecent material, etc.” It is a criminal offense to ship prohibited items. High duties are charged for compensation.
