Removal cost from cornwall australia

How much does it cost to move from Cornwall to Australia?

The removal cost from Cornwall to Australia will depend mainly on the volume of items you wish to ship. There are two different sizes shipping containers in use. A 20ft container and a 40ft container. For the majority of customers looking to ship the contents of a 2 or 3 bedroom property they will usually find a 20ft shipping container is large enough.

The cost to ship a 20ft container door to door to most coastal towns in Australia would be between
4,500 to
5,900, depending on the volume, town and distance from the port. For customers with a 4 or 5 bedroom property it is likely that they will need a 40ft container. The cost to ship a 40ft container door to door for most coastal towns would be between
7,100.00 to
8,900.00, depending on the volume, town and distance from the port.

For a more detailed guide price use Britannia Lanes free Overseas Price Calculator. Here is the information and guide price for a 3 bedroom property moving from Truro, Cornwall to Adelaide, Australia.

The estimated price range for moving 1000 cu.ft. sole use 20 foot container, door-to-door from Truro to Adelaide is between
4550 and
5550. Figures assume UK mainland collection and overseas delivery within 30 miles of arrival port.

A full container load (FCL) will normally take 8 to 13 weeks but not guaranteed. A groupage consignment (LCL) will normally take 10 to 14 weeks but not guaranteed. The guide price is subject to currency fluctuations and possible rises in freight charges. Rates exclude permits, customs duties and/or local taxes, storage, diversion, insurance, delivery above first floor, abnormal access, trans-shipments, pianos, second split delivery, Government wharfage taxes, extensive customs inspections, x-rays and/or agricultural inspection (if ordered) or fumigation (if ordered) and any subsequent quarantine charges.

I hope this information is of help.
