Avoid Excess Baggage Fees - Shipporter International Shipping

 

Step 1: Prepare shipment

Firstly, check the shipping rate from your location with our shipping calculator tool and register for your mailing address with Shipporter online. Once you’ve confirmed your mailing address, clearly label all pieces of luggage and prepare them for shipment.

Once your personal items are ready to go, organise shipment to your registered mailing address with a local courier.

Step 2: Print & complete paperwork

Next, download the Australian Customs Personal Effects declaration, and complete the form to the best of your ability, answering all questions truthfully.

Please do not complete – ‘How my personal effects will arrive’ and ‘Clearing your personal effects’. These two sections are for us to fill out!

Once completed, email the PE declaration and a copy of your passport (photo page only) to cs@shipporter.com. You can use your name or mailing address as the reference.

Step 3: Track & receive

Once your shipment has arrived at the mailing address, we’ll email you an invoice for the international shipping, which you can make payment for via PayPal.

We’ll send through all the details you need to track your shipment online, and you will also receive status updates via email.

We’ll contact you directly to confirm the delivery schedule once your shipment arrives in Australia and has successfully cleared Customs and Quarantine.

Your shipment will be delivered straight to your door!

 

Avoid stress at the airport and travel within airline luggage limits. Shipporter will ensure your items are returned to Australia safely!
