Affordable Freight: Many stores now offer International Shipping Rates, however, they usually only ship via air freight which is much more expensive. Don't need it overnight? Too big/heavy for a regular carrier? We only ship via sea freight in consolidated shipping containers.

How long does it take?

We deliver to Brisbane, Fremantle, Sydney and Melbourne. Freight is packed into containers on a first come, first serve basis. Below is a basic time line for the complete process.

timeline of how shipping to Australia works

After a container is booked, there is between 8 - 12 weeks travel time before it arrives in Australia. SHIPtoAUS has regular containers to Australia so the wait should not be too long. While SHIPtoAUS provides the best shipping rate for your goods, they do not run the US government, the Australian government or the weather. International shipping is a complicated process that has many different entities involved. Your freight will arrive in Australia safely, however it will not be a quick process. If goods are required quickly, air mail would be a better option.
