UK to Sydney Removal Costs

Costs can vary depending on the quantity of goods and the nature of the removal. While smaller shipments will be in the region of hundreds of pounds, full container load shipments could be up to around £6,000. Air freight is considerably more expensive.

Generally, complexity adds cost – so if your removal is straightforward (in terms of access, packing, distance from the ports in both countries then the price will be lower. When there’s an increase in the volume of the removal and distance, then the complexity of the packing and crating will naturally increase the cost.

The most important thing is that you choose an international removals company that won’t let you down. From small baggage shipments to the relocation of large items, John Mason International will take the greatest care in moving your goods to Sydney.
