Moving To Brisbane From The UK

More and more Brits are heading to Brisbane to start a new life. The pull of the Sunshine State of Queensland is just too tempting to turn down, and with Brisbane being within driving distance of two of Australia’s best coastlines, it’s understandable why this is the city of choice.

Both the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast are within an hour’s drive of Brisbane, so if you’re looking for the tranquility of the seaside, the bustle of the city and a relaxed, friendly place to live, it ticks all of the boxes. If you’re thinking about moving to Brisbane, you’ll need to enlist the services of a professional removal company and that’s where Britannia Movers International comes in.

Moving to Brisbane with Britannia Movers International

When you first bring Britannia in to manage your move, we will send someone to your home who will go through a comprehensive questionnaire with you. We’ll ask you what you plan to take with you, what you’ll be putting into storage and how much assistance you’d like with your removal. We offer a complete, door-to-door service, so you can have a fully catered move whereby we will pack, load, ship and unpack your items when they arrive in Brisbane. We’ll establish what service is most suitable for your needs and also work out what your budget and time constraints are as well.

After we’ve gone through the questionnaire, we’ll create a detailed moving plan so that everyone knows the process at any given time. Generally, your items will be loaded into a shipping container for sole use, but if you have fewer items, you may have a shared consignment to save you paying for unused space. Bear in mind that shared consignments can take over three months to make it to Australia, while a single container takes around eight weeks to arrive, so you’ll need to ensure you have scheduled in plenty of time before your flight to Australia.

Removalists to Brisbane from the UK

If you’re short of time, or simply don’t have the inclination, then Britannia will provide you with a packing team who will carefully wrap all of your items and load them up onto the shipping container for you. Cartons, portable wardrobes and bubble wrap will ensure your belongings are kept secure while they’re in transit, and we also offer insurance to give you that additional peace of mind. Things can get quite rocky on the open seas, so it’s nice to know you’re covered. We’ll also complete a detailed inventory as we go to ensure there is a full list of every single item you are taking with you. Australian customs will expect this list, so it ensures that your items will make it through the customs process. You also need to have owned your items for at least 12 months for them to be allowed in duty free, so there is a potential cost to bear in mind. However, you can rest assured that Britannia will provide you with all the necessary paperwork you need to fill in, so you don’t have to worry about anything being missed.

We’ll barcode your items as well, so we know what items are where during the whole process, making the move to Brisbane run that much more smoothly. Air freight is an option you can consider for items you need urgently, but this can be a little more costly. We’ll work with you to establish which method works best for you, so that you have the items you need when you need them. If that means part of your move is sent via sea and the rest by air, we will make the necessary arrangements for you.

Complete removal service to Brisbane

When you choose Britannia to manage your move to Brisbane, you will receive a tailored, personalised experience from start to finish. Our experienced removalists will take care of all the details of your move, including all the additional things that often get forgotten in the excitement of emigrating. Pets are part of the family and we can put you in touch with a company that can ensure the safe shipping of your beloved animals. Australia is very strict on the entry of animals, so we’ll ensure you’re in touch with a company you can trust to take care of the process properly. Similarly, if you want to ship your vehicles to Australia, there is a process that must be followed. It may be that your car requires modification before it’s accepted into Brisbane, but Britannia will provide the right paperwork and go through the process with you.

If you want to put some of your belongings into storage, the team at Britannia will arrange this for you. We can store things in one of our facilities within the UK and have them shipped over to you in the future, or we can also arrange for storage facilities in Brisbane, so that you can access your items when you get there if that suits you better. Money management and currency transfer can also be taken care of with a little help from our partners. We’ll put you in touch with companies you can rely on to ensure you have the right bank accounts and can access your money when you arrive in Brisbane.
