Hi guys just want to ask how did you ship all yer stuff going to Australia? I just had the weirdest experience I called fedex and asked whats the biggest box that they have cuz im going to ship my used stuff to Australia. Then the agent told me under Australian law you cannot ship your used items to australia its prohibited. Thats the weirdest rule that ive ever heard. So guys how did you send yer stuff going to australia? Ive heard people used containers and sea freight their stuff but I dont have that much stuff I just have one big box full of things. Please help!!! im leaving next week and I still havent packed my stuff thanks in advance!

    @paris_hipon yung iba sa mga international movers sa sg gusto nila per container van ang isship mo, di sila tumatanggap ng 1 or 2 boxes..

    sa singpost ako nagpadala, by sea ay 1-2 months. kung by air around 5 days ata un, mas mahal nga lang kumpara sa sea freight

Then mas nagtipid pa kame by taking Jetstar and we bought 40KG baggage per pax (family of 3 kame e). tiis na lang sa legroom pero mabilis lang flight kase direct sya so not bad

    what i meant of agent is ung call center agent of fedex hehe. Depends on the courier fedex do not allow shipping used items in australia but other couriers you can. Its faster if you do via airshipping than seafreight. Pag seafreight itll take 2 months daw due to quarantining stuff.
