Duties you’ll face when importing household items

There isn’t a straightforward answer, when asking about the import duties charged to bring household goods into Melanesia. This is due to the fact that Melanesia isn’t a single country or even a territory owned by a single country. Instead, it’s a region within Oceania that includes four separate nations - the Solomon Islands, Fiji, Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu. In addition, Melanesia contains a region that belongs to Indonesia (Western New Guinea) and a territory that is owned by France (New Caledonia) (1).

Therefore, when searching out information about the import duties for personal household belongings - you must refer to the country or territory to which you are moving within Melanesia. Use the links provided above, as these will point you towards either further details about import policies or the contact information for the customs department in question.  

Duties you’ll face when importing a vehicle

Again, the regulations of the specific country or territory within Melanesia where you plan to import your vehicle, will determine the exact duties you’ll pay. You’ll need to contact Fiji Revenue and Customs Service, Papua New Guinea Customs, Solomon Islands Customs and Excise Division or Vanuatu Customs and Inland Revenue Department.

If you’ll be shipping a vehicle to New Caledonia, then France’s import duty policy will likely apply - though there may be differences. Contact the 

French Customs Service  to learn more, or refer to this informative brochure specifically created for travelers to New Caledonia (Nouvelle-Calédonie). Finally, if your vehicle’s destination is Western New Guinea, then contact the Indonesian Directorate General of Customs and Excise for further information. 

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Moving overseas involves numerous procedures and preparations.  You may however, have a hassle-free experience if you plan and prepare well.  The following tips will enable you to make your international move easier:

  • Plan and prepare well: Know the delivery times so as to avoid last minute rush and also prepare your valuables as well as the required documents in a presentable manner.
  • Get informed: All necessary information can be found from embassies of the following countries: Vanuatu, Fiji, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, as well as from the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) and other relevant authorities.
  • Liaise with the moving company and communicate all information relevant to your relocation to them. Select the delivery option that will best suit your needs to enable easy transportation to your destination.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

Relocating overseas may be something new to you so you will need to be guided by someone who is familiar with shipping to your destination country. A professional moving company will be one that offers you reliable services as well as advice and guidance through the whole process from start to finish.

How to find the best international moving company

While your search may reveal that there are a number of international moving companies, you need to narrow down to those that offer exemplary and reliable services. Their expertise may be indicated by the number of years they have been in operation, their ratings and if they possess the relevant credentials. A moving company that also has an office or warehouse at your destination country will likely offer you better services. To pin-point the best firm in offering Melanesia International Moving Services, do plenty of research to determine what service is covered under the packages offered.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!
★★★★★

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
