Relocating to another country is stressful and time consuming and yet at the same time, itโ€™s extremely exciting. The whirlwind of emotion you might feel will eventually settle once you are all moved into your new home in the beautiful country of Australia. The hard work you put in towards your move will prove well-worth it all once you have had some time exploring your new surroundings, making friends, meeting neighbors, and learning more about your community.

Thereโ€™s a lot involved in an overseas move. In fact, thereโ€™s so much to care for that itโ€™s in your best interest to hire a moving company with international relocation experience. With durable moving equipment, tools, modern technologies, and plenty of knowledge pertaining to the legalities of an international move, thereโ€™s not much left for you to worry about. They can handle almost everything from beginning to end, packing to delivery.

Not only will the movers perform all the laborious tasks as well as the process of meeting all requirements for import approval. This includes helping you gather the proof needed to earn the certificate of import approval as required by the Customs Department and abiding by any other foreign policies set by the country. It can be presumed that most US citizens hire professional movers to help with their relocations to Australia due to all thatโ€™s involved in the process. According to the 2011 Australia Census, 90,000 US born citizens were residing in the ocean bordered nation thatโ€™s distanced more than 9,000 air miles away from their native land.

The Time and Effort Put into Preparing Affects the Relocation Experience

The time you spend preparing for your move from the US to Australia is perhaps the most crucial. Thorough preparation pays off by saving you time and money. It also decreases any of the risks that are typically associated with international relocations while encouraging an overall more pleasant transition for all those involved. A majority of those that purchase international moving services will opt for full move services. This is a service that encompasses pretty much all that is involved in the move, meaning the movers will handle the packing, loading, transporting, unloading, furniture disassembly and reassembly, import guidance, and more.

Itโ€™s safe to assume that youโ€™ll need at least a few solid months to prepare for your move. In some cases it may take more time. Nevertheless, itโ€™s safe to assume that a vast majority of the time you dedicate towards preparation is spent collecting the documentation demanded by Australian Customs. The paperwork you are to provide serves as proof of compliance with their import and immigration laws. If you fail to meet all demands, your relocation will not go forth until all is confirmed and lawful permissions are granted.

Aside from the efforts made to gain approvals as according foreign policies, thereโ€™s a more physically demanding task to attend to before the actual relocation can begin. Any of the belongings you intend to ship to Australia whether it be a vehicle, an assortment of household goods, furniture, pets, or anything else thatโ€™s permitted into the nation- must be properly packaged and ready for its transport.

Since the transport includes ground and overseas shipping methods to see through such a long distance delivery, it is especially important that your things are tightly packed and packaged as according to the moverโ€™s requests. You should use high quality packaging materials, practice the right packaging techniques, and label every box clearly. Furniture, appliances and other large items will need to be packaged using different moving materials and techniques. To avoid the hassle of packing your belongings, you could hire your mover for full packing services. They have the experience, materials and supplies to pack your things faster while ensuring their security during transport.

Satisfied Customers

“I must say after looking at the Better Business Bureau prior to moving my vehicle with you I was aprehensive. I noticed 67 complaints in the last 12 months. When I called John in your office to discuss this he informed me that "Yes, we do have 67 complaints, but we moved over 13,000 vehicles last year and that is less than 1/2% complaint rate" Well John, you managed to exceed my expectations! The A1 team delivered on time and without a scratch. Thank you once again for all your help.”

“I shipped my Civic from to South Dakota using A1 Auto Transport. Stories of people losing their cars in transit or having to wait weeks for them when using other companies, made me a bit weary. But fortunately, my experience with A1 was the exact opposite. My car arrived 5 days after its departure, even faster than me. The process felt a bit informal when I got updated on the transportโ€™s status via text message. I was a bit stressed, but Joeโ€™s reassurances made it bearable. I found another company with slightly lower prices, but they just didnโ€™t seem trustworthy, so I chose A1. I met the driver before the shipment, which was also reassuring. Somehow, they managed to keep my Civic for 3 days until I got to South Dakota to pick it up. Iโ€™m quite happy with my choice and Iโ€™ll give them a call when I go back home.”

“Thanks for the follow-up message. Yes - I used A1 Auto Transport - just under a different quote number. The car arrived in San Antonio after 6 days in fine condition.ย The website is great. I'll recommend your company to anyone who wants to transport a vehicle. It was easy, cheap, and safe.”

“To whom it may concern: I currently work out of the Auto Driveaway Co - Atlanta, Georgia location. At this moment I would like to take this time to say "THANK YOU" to one of your representatives Ms. Cherie Morse. Repeatedly she has presented herself ( and a reflection on A1 Auto Transport ) to be quite capable to me - promptly answering my questions ( mostly quotes @ competitive rates ) and assisting me in tracking down those trucking movements - done in the past. Unlike other companies wherein I get a "machine" and MIGHT get an answer back that day - Even with her voice mail, her response is immediate and for the want of nothing else, I wanted someone to know at A1 Auto Transport that I "at least" sincerely appreciate all her efforts. Thank you again. Sincerely, Phillip Raila Auto Driveaway Company, Atlanta”

“Truly, the best transport company! I was supposed to use another originally. However, I read some terrible reviews on it, so I gave A1 Auto Transport a call and arranged for a short notice transport. They thankfully obliged me, a big help considering all the preparations I had to make for my move to Colorado. The driver did a great job. He was communicative, professional, and very competent. He took my baby on Sunday and brought it at my new home by Thursday evening. Amazing Service! Thank you both! Iโ€™m not one to write reviews, I just really feel you deserve it.”
