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. When seeking Melanesia International Moving Services, work with a firm that is familiar with the rules that govern shipping to that destination and that can advise you accordingly.

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.

Satisfied Customers

“A1 Auto Transport sure knows how to give a red carpet experience. Joe was proactive and always available. The company I used before couldn’t get me scheduled even after a week. Joe did it in a few minutes. Ordering was a breeze, and the driver was good. He was on time for the pickup, but the delivery was a day late. The weather slowed him down a lot, but I’m just glad it arrived in Rhode Island intact. Overall, the experience was worth recommending to others. The car was as I sent it, and I’m a very happy customer.”

“Got my car shipped to Idaho and am really pleased with the experience. Joe was always just a phone call away and made sure everything went smoothly behind the scene. He found a place just a couple minutes away from where I live to squeeze a truck in for the pickup and delivered it at my doorstep in Idaho. How he managed to squeeze in through the roads near my house is honestly a mystery. I checked my car before handing it over and once more when it arrived. There wasn’t a single extra scratch on it. The driver was of the same mindset as me it seemed, since he also checked it with me and even took pictures. I am very happy with the service I received and would definitely recommend A1 Auto Transport to anyone who needs to move a car. Thank you Joe!”

“After my dad’s passing, I decided to return to Rhode Island to support my mom. The last company I used to move a car was late by 3 days, so I went to the web once more and did my research. I went through several websites and asked for quotes, including A1 Auto Transport. It wasn’t the cheapest nor was it the most expensive company of the bunch, but I knew not to rely on price for these things. I’ve heard of quite a few scams from companies with really low rates. So, I called each one to get a better feel for them. To my questions, some of them got flustered, others didn’t know how to answer and said they’ll get back to me at a later date. One guy whom I pestered a bit too much simply hung up. But with A1 Auto Transport, it was a different story. Joe answered the first time and had no problem answering my questions. It was like he already knew I would ask them. His quote was also reasonable, so I asked him to arrange for a truck to pick up my car. My experience with A1 Auto Transport was a resounding success! Thank you Joe for the stellar service!”

“Hi, Nicole: I just want to let you know how I am impressed with your company's efficiency in scheduling and customer service. The local transportation carrier just picked up my newly purchased car yesterday in Spring Lake, NJ and it is on the way to VA. I was told it will be a door-to-door delivery. Since I am still out of town and won't be back to Glen Allen, VA until 1/2/2006. I was wondering whether I may schedule the delivery date any time after 1/2. Thank you for the timely assistance from both you and Teresa, which made the transaction and delivery so smooth at the short notice in the holiday season. Your company's commitment to quality and customer satisfaction are really top-notched. Happy New Year and Regards.”

“Thank you Joe and the A1 Auto Transport team! It was a satisfying, honest and professional experience. The car was picked up on time and delivered to South Carolina as promised. They didn’t charge extra either. Joe made sure I was informed throughout the transport and explained the entire process, so I knew what to expect. The driver brought the car to my home, encouraged me to inspect it, and asked for payment only after. He called a day before to let me know he’d arrive, and also a couple hours earlier, so I’d be prepared. I had no problem with the drop off location, since it was in front of my home. I didn’t have to pay a deposit until the truck actually picked up my car. I was also informed of it beforehand. I’ve heard stories of companies asking for a deposit before picking your car, so they may leave with your money without ever showing up. Not the case with A1. I received another call from Joe after receiving my car to ask if I was satisfied with the service. Yes, yes and yes!! Thank you Joe for an awesome delivery!”
