Shipping from China to Australia

importing from china to australia

China is an Australian bargain hunter’s heaven. However, great prices and exceptional savings on purchases can be lost once the prices of shipping from China to Australia are considered.
Airfreight is expensive, however there are options that can offer large savings. Shipping with an experienced sea freight specialist is an affordable and safe way to deliver overseas shopping to your door.

At Shipporter, we specialise in importing from China to Australia. By registering for a free Chinese mailing address through our website, you can begin shopping without the regular international boundaries. We then ship your purchases straight to your door! With the modern boom in online eCommerce, many Australians are seeing the benefit in waiting a little longer for their goods, and shipping by sea rather than air.

You can arrange low-cost shipping from China to Australia for virtually anything that fits into a shipping container, including car parts, furniture, large musical instruments, gym equipment and more.


China to Australia example:

Sea freight is a more affordable way to deliver heavier and bulkier items from overseas. We priced an Antique Chinese sideboard from an eBay seller in China at $1,950.00 AUD.

We used our shipping calculator to determine how much it would cost to ship from China to Australia. Using these measurements, Shipporter can deliver this antique Chinese sideboard from our warehouse directly to your door for $388.00 AUD. A comparable air freight service calculated the charge to be in excess of $1,500.00 AUD.
