Australia is one of the top destinations in the world for immigrants and Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland, is no exception to this. The city itself is young, modern and clean, consisting of a compact city centre and sprawling suburbs north, south, east and west. However, don't forget to bring your beachwear, as the city is ideally located for access to the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast. With an average of seven hours of sunshine every day and warm to hot weather all year round, it's no wonder many Brits choose Brisbane (or ìThe Sunshine Stateî) as their adopted home.
Shipping your household belongings to ìThe Sunshine Stateî is a simple process. It's essential that you choose the correct size container in order to transport your possessions and we've come up with a guide to help you decide: The contents of a 3-bedroom house and a vehicle should fit into a 40-foot container. If you aren't planning on taking your car, the same 40-foot container should accommodate the contents of a 4 to 5-bedroom house, with room left for a surfboard or two! Alternatively, items from a 3-bedroom house or two small cars should fit into a 20-foot container.
In general a car will fit into a 20ft container. You will also need to consider quarantine and tax charges usually levied on importing vehicles.
