Personal Effects

Personal Effect’s customs clearance & door delivery to Australia

Cargo is classed as personal effects if you have used and owned them for more than 12 months.

If you have not owned and used the items for a period longer than 12 months, the items are considered as commercial cargo and may require payment of duties/ tax’s by Australian customs and will be handled in a different way.

Your personal effects must comply with Australian quarantine and may require an AQIS inspection which we can arrange for you , if you have a Full 20 foot or 40’ container with only your cargo in the container , the container will need to be unpacked and inspected by Quarantine at a customs/quarantine quarantine depot.

*******Containers cannot be delivered to your residential addresses.

Documentation required for clearing your personal effects:

  • Fully completed Australian unaccompanied Personal Effects Statement.
  • Copy of your house bill of lading.
  • Owner of the items full name, delivery address & contact phone number.
  • A detailed inventory list of your cargo.
  • Copies of your passport including clear photo page.
  • Any import permits for motor vehicles.
  • 2 other forms of identification.

We can handle all your customs clearance, quarantine and door delivery requirements please contact our office for options and costs involved.

Alternatively you can arrange your own customs and quarantine clearance; see below procedure although it is recommended you nominate a customs broker to handle this on your behalf.

Steps to manage your own customs and quarantine clearance:

First, you will need to take all above documents to the Customs office in your port/airport of arrival.

Once Customs and Quarantine have cleared your shipment, take your paperwork to the depot listed on our Delivery Order.

After containers have been unpacked, and goods available, you generally have 3 days to collect your shipment, after that storage fees will apply (Minimum $130.00 per day in some depots).

It is your responsibility to check with the depot on available dates. Quarantine will often want to inspect your shipment so to avoid storage costs, you will need to action your customs clearance immediately usually before the vessel arrives.

Please note if you have NOT completed customs and quarantine requirements before storage starts on the cargo (this includes any quarantine inspections) you will be liable to pay storage fees at the depot upon pick up of your cargo.
