Shipping your belongings to Australia is quicker and cheaper than using an airline. With Kiwi Movers’ excess baggage service, you could save up to 70% on the cost of sending it by air and your excess baggage will be at its destination in 10 – 12 weeks by sea or if you’re in a hurry, ask us about air freight which takes 7 – 10 working days.

Excess baggage vs shipping

Given the distance, commercial flights often don’t represent good value for money when it comes to shipping unaccompanied baggage. If you’ve accumulated a lot of stuff during your time overseas and want to send some of it back home, sea shipping is very likely to be a big money saver.

You can ship your belongings to Australia without the hassle. Just take advantage of our flexible collection times. All you need to do is pack, fill in any necessary documentation, and we’ll take care of the rest.
