So im packing my belongings up as I have sold my house. This is well in advance of even applying for a visa. Is there anything i should be aware of reference how it should be packed etc. Its all going in my parents loft until probably next July and I don't really want to have to re pack it again. Its only my personal stuff books, DVDs and generally just stuff I don't want to get rid of.

Be careful not to pack anything you cannot import, or that might give concern to customs during an inspection - this could result in extra charges if anything has to be treated/disposed of by customs. http://www.customs.gov.au/site/page4369.asp

 

As Vickyplum says make sure to keep an inventory of what's in each box and leave the boxes open for your movers to inspect, they will do a quick check to make sure everything's packed ok for the kind of journey and that nothing obvious has been packed that shouldn't be.

 

Use a little extra padding than you would for a move locally, ships move alot more than trucks! Use scrunched up paper to fill in any gaps within the box to stop / cushion movement as much as possible.

 

Hope that helps!
