Look at IKEA Australia website. You'll get an average market price.

It will probably cost you twice the local cost in shipping and customs. Remember! All leather and most of wood work will have to be treated by customs! that costs ... a lot.

We are actuelly going to ship our staff from Europe to oz. Most of our stuff is clothes, shoes, and other misc stuff such as wii, guitar, keyboard. Does anyone know if we would need to pay extra for customs to go through all our stuff. We are not bringing any furniture but ive heard horror stories about customs charging a fortune upon arrival.

Wii, cloths and etc are exempt. Unless you have leather jackets. I had to pay $70 cutoms fee for 2 leather jackets. Otherwise its free (if you have a general migrant or long term visa)

Good to know. Think i will wear the leather jacket then... Anyway, Hubby will have the migrant visa so hopefully they don't charge us anything! It's already costing 1000 euros to bring our clothes etc.

Well, That's on an estimate of 175kg. Not sure we will have that much. Trying to sell as much as possible before hand.
Which shipping company did you use? We are leaving France, and planning to use bagages du monde.

I shipped from Belgium, Bruxelles and used KLM, they had migrant discount at that time. Not sure if they still have it. I had only 85kg :-)
