Moving to Australia Supply Shop

Moving Boxes

Are you shipping anything to Australia? Then you need new, unused boxes. That’s right, you cannot reuse boxes from a previous move.

I have selected several speciality boxes to help with packing up your household below.

Packing Supplies: Label, Sharpies, Packing Tape and More

Australian Customs and Quarantine will be checking each of your boxes against your shipping inventory. The faster they get through all your boxes the less they will charge you for each inspection. This is why having nicely labeled boxes with the box number on it is important.

Travel Adapters & Step Down Transformers

Are you moving from the US to Australia? Do you want to take your KitchenAid Mixer with you? What about your food processor or TV? Then you will need a Step Down Transformer. Also be sure to stock up on outlet adapters before you move because they are surprisingly expensive in Australia.

Australia Moving Guides

These guides are not just for adults but for kids too. That’s right, there are two guides I recommend parents get their kids. One is an Australian Travel Guide for kids and the other is a book for kids about living in Australia.

Besides moving guides, I have selected several other books about Australia that are worth a read.
