cost of moving from europe to Tasmania

    Recommended Posts

    We live in France at the moment but feel we're better off coming back to Aus in our dotage.

    Has anyone moved lock stock and barrel from the uk as I doubt anyone would be coming from France and could give

    us recommendations for a shipping company and cost please.

    Sorry but haven't you posted an identical thread previously?  Yes we sent a container from Europe to Australia but that was in 2001. Costs likely increased considerably from then. Even then shopped around and found a good deal out of Hamburg.

    Thanks Pura Vida

    I don't know if I posted an identical thread but certainly have asked many questions! lol  No-one answered anyway about

    the cost of shipping but I thought I'd ask again as a long shot.  Nothing is cast in stone but it does help to have some idea

    of what we're going to be up for should we eventually sell here and make the move.  A bit scary but there you go nothing

    ventured nothing gained.  Shipping to Tas will also add to the cost I guess but certainly and by no means sure goods would

    be unloaded in Melbourne and then on to Tassie.  Am I correct in my assumption?

    @Bound4Tassie is making the move from the UK to Tasmania so she should be able to give you an idea on the cost.  The shipment will more than likely go to Melbourne then be put on a freight ship to Tasmania.
