We’ll also establish if there’s anything you want to have sent over immediately via airfreight whilst waiting for the main delivery of your items. Our survey is very comprehensive and will ensure we have covered every item to be moved and help us establish a complete itinerary for your relocation.

Packing for Your Move to Australia

As soon as your date of move is confirmed our International move co-ordinators will liaise with you to arrange for a team of professional export packers to pack all your  items in the correct fashion. Ark Relocation utilise high quality industry standard packing materials. We have specially designed boxes for your items including hanging wardrobe cartons, TV cartons, and bike cartons. Mattresses, sofas and other soft furnishing are wrapped in export wrap for protection. We also provide a full case making service for valuable items, paintings and antiques.

Once everything is packed correctly our operatives will proceed to load all of your items into the shipping container. If you have a large volume to be shipped we will place you effects in a sole use container. For smaller shipments, we’ll place your items into a groupage container with other Isis clients heading to the same destination. This will save you money as you will only pay for the space used in the container. Our International move co-ordinator will work with you to find the most logical option for your move, including a combination of shipping and air freight if required.
