Moving To Adelaide From The UK

Adelaide has won the award for the most livable city in the world three times in the past five years – so it’s clearly a popular destination to want to move to. Boasting a logical road layout amongst green parkland, Adelaide offers something a little different to many cities in Australia.

The ‘festival state’ has something going on all year round, so whether you’re heading to a new job on the other side of the world, or are embarking on a new adventure with the family, Adelaide is a hugely popular destination. Britannia Movers International frequently helps individuals and families move to Adelaide, so if you’re thinking of making the big move, why not find out how we can help you?

Moving to Adelaide with Britannia Movers International

This stunning city is over 10,000 miles away from the UK, so if you’re moving to Adelaide you’ll need to have the most detailed moving plan possible. Britannia Movers International will send a team to your home and go through a comprehensive moving questionnaire with you. We’ll use this information to come up with a plan that covers every stage of the move to Adelaide – from the amount of removal people you need, to what timeframes you want to work with. We can supply packing materials and even a team of packers who will carefully wrap and load your possessions onto the shipping containers ready for you if you’re short of time or simply don’t have the inclination. We also offer and recommend you take insurance for your items, as they can get jostled around on the ship and it’s nice to have the peace of mind that everything is covered.

Find your local branch

When you move to Adelaide, you’ll discover that your items must be accompanied by a complete inventory before they will be accepted into the country. Britannia will provide all of the necessary paperwork for you to fill in and we’ll also barcode everything and create the inventory, so that this can be submitted to the Australian authorities. Please also bear in mind that your items will be allowed in duty free, as long as you have owned them for at least 12 months so there may be an additional charge to account for here. We can offer you storage if you’d like to keep your things secure when they arrive in Adelaide before your own arrival, so let us know if you require this.

International removal services to Adelaide

We will take your items to Adelaide via shipping containers, ideally as a sole use consignment which takes around eight weeks to arrive in Australia. If you have fewer items, we’ll send them as a joint consignment, which can take over three months to arrive. Once your belongings actually get to Australia, they can then be held up at customs for another couple of weeks as well. It’s worth knowing all of this in advance, so that you can plan your own flights based on when everything will arrive. If you need anything urgently, we can arrange to have it sent via air. We can combine air freight with shipping to suit you, so just let us know what the best option is for you.

If you want to take your vehicles with you, Britannia Movers International will take care of the shipping but you’ll need to ensure your cars meet the regulations for being road legal Adelaide. You may need to modify them in some way, while the Australian government may also require further paperwork from you. Your car will be subject to duty as well, so you might want to do what many expats do and sell any vehicles before you leave, then purchase a car upon your arrival in Adelaide that will already be compliant with Australian law.

Additional international services from Britannia

At Britannia Movers International, we offer a number of additional services to ensure your move to Adelaide runs as smoothly as possible. We understand that emigrating is a big step and involves lots of different elements, so if we can’t take care of it directly then we’ll be able to put you in touch with people that can. If you need assistance with setting up a bank account in Adelaide, or would like some advice regarding currency exchange, we have the right contacts who can take care of all of this, ensuring you have access to your money when you arrive in Australia.

Similarly, if you’re moving permanently, you’ll want to take your pets with you and this is not always an easy process. Britannia will introduce you to a company that specialises in pet transport and they will ensure your animals are safely shipped to Australia. They’ll need to undergo various veterinary checks as well, so this can be taken care of for you, removing the additional pressure of worrying about getting your pets over to Adelaide with you.
