Single box of essential items-best way to ship to Aus?

    Recommended Posts

    My wife and I are slowly making our way across South East Asia on our way to relocating to Adelaide. 

    Most of our goods are being shipped via movecube as we speak but we have a 30kg box of essentials we want to ship via airmail. 

    Does anyone know how customs would work in this way as the good are unaccompanied personal effects? Everything is over one year old. 

     Severnseas sorted all the paperwork for the Movecube so we are unsure what we need to do. The parcel is currently at a friend's house in the UK. 

    Many thanks for any help in advance.

    We shipped a few extra boxes with Sevenseas no issue. Arrived the same time as our Movecube. 

    I'd imagine airmail is going to be pricey. Have you looked at excess baggage shipping? It is stuff that can fit in a suitcase or holdall? We also flew over an extra bag when we flew over. Sent it the day before we flew out, it arrived the day after us.

    Thanks for the speedy response. The price is actually ok but it's more the customs paperwork and procedure we are concerned about. 


    We are currently sitting in a Vietnamese bar so shipping extra stuff with us isn't an option... we shall be arriving with 2 rucksacks!
