Relocation costs from South Africa to Australia

Not sure if this is already a topic.

Does anyone have experience with international relocation to Australia?
It doesn't necessarily have to be from South Africa.

My guess is, that moving internationally would have similar requirements from most places.

I'd be grateful for any tips. Thank you

Hi Philip,

It all depends on what you relocate. When my sister and her fam moved to Melbourne they had a 80 foot container with all their furniture. that was pricey.

When I moved to Sydney I sent a few bags of clothing unaccompanied luggage which was very cheap.. I sold all my furniture prior to leaving SA.

Hi Philip,

They used Baileys Worldwide Removals. They said they werent the cheapest but they are well known and their service was brilliant.

My brother in law said it was around R75k for a 40 foot container.

Hope this helps,
Dylan

Here's an update.

A couple of removalist companies provided quotes that amounted to around ZAR28,000 for a queen bed, some personal items, all the items in a lounge room and a few kitchen items.

We figured we could buy all that here in Australia for less money, even factoring the exchange rate. ZAR9 to AUD1.

hmmm it totally depends if you want quality stuff or very cheap stuff. I bought a bed base and a mattress and it was $1300 alone. Kitchen stuff is also very expensive.
