The economic impact of ‘Brexit’: importing from the UK to Australia

July 12, 2016 - Posted By shipporter

Importing UK to Australia

Pound deteriorating against the AUD

Historically, Aussies have been intimidated by the British pound, with hopes of shipping UK goods to Australia dashed once they do the math and see the astronomical value of the pound compared to the Aussie dollar.

With the Brexit, that’s no longer the case. The value of the Australian dollar has risen sharply against the pound, making shopping online in UK stores a very exciting prospect for Aussies looking to scoop up a great deal.

With the value of the British pound deteriorating, now’s the perfect time to jump on sales and pick up that fancy British chandelier or washing machine you’ve had your eye on.

Importing from UK to Australia

Importing from the UK gives Australians a much wider range of options when it comes to home goods and decor, since the UK market is much larger.

  • Access to a greater range of products
  • Access to products not sold in Australia
  • Affordable shipping, no matter the size of the item
  • Peace of mind that your goods will arrive safely
