What does it cost to ship furniture to Australia?
The cost of shipping furniture to Australia can vary depending on several factors, including the number of items being shipped, the shipping method chosen, and the final destination within Australia. As a result, it is difficult to provide a specific cost without first conducting a thorough assessment of your shipping needs.
At Simpsons, we offer a range of shipping options to suit your budget and timeline. We recommend booking a home or video survey with our experienced team to receive an accurate quote for your move. During the survey, our team will assess the size and weight of your furniture, as well as any other items you wish to ship, and provide you with a personalized quote for the move.
When it comes to container shipping, there are two main options available: Full Container Load (FCL) and Less than Container Load (LCL). With FCL, you will have exclusive use of a container for your move, which means that you can pack it with as much or as little as you need. LCL, on the other hand, is ideal for smaller moves, as your items will be consolidated with other shipments to fill the container.
At Simpsons, we have years of experience in shipping furniture to Australia and can help you choose the shipping option that best meets your needs and budget. Our team will work closely with you to ensure that your move is stress-free and that your furniture arrives at its destination in perfect condition.

This is particularly useful for those who don’t have enough items to fill an entire container.

This is particularly useful for those who need their items to arrive quickly or have a tight schedule for their move to Australia.
