Re: Moving from Aargau to Perth Australia share container

Hello there....just happened to come across your post here by sheer accident. Would be interested indeed in sharing some container space with destination Perth/WA/AUS

I would have some boxes of tools packed inside plastic storage boxes and also a big Hobart style doughmixer, which is packaged inside a australian custom approved wooden box. This would take up approx. 1.5 m3 at most and considered personal belongings, as I possesed this gear for several years and would like to move to my country of residence

However I am also toying with the idea of transporting to Australia my Land Rover Defender MY11 DIESEL Station Wagon...original idea was, to put all my personal belongings inside my vehicle, which in turn would have to be placed inside a 20' / 6mtr. Seacontainer. I am not aware yet at this stage, what the requirements for transport of motor vehicles by sea are.

Where did you intend to ship from?(Basle, Rotterdam, Genoa, Hamburg...or) Where in Switzerland would you load yours or rented container? Pick up by whom?....and...and

So, wouldn't mind hearing from you soon, in order to give us a chance to nut things out
Solong & ooroo Zwergli

Re: Moving from Aargau to Perth Australia share container

Hi,
this might be a very dumb question as I'm not into mechanics. can a left hand drivers side be made right sided for Australia and if so, what might be the cost?

Re: Moving from Aargau to Perth Australia share container

You don't have to do conversions any more, unless you want a right hand drive vehicle like almost all the vehicles in Oz. However there might be some safety requirements that will be outlined by the australian authorities (http://www.infrastructure.gov.au/vehicles/imports/)? depending on the vehicle make your are thinking of bringing into the country. A conversion is not a cheap affair and if the value or age of your car does not warrent this major change, then you are probably better off selling what you got here...save on not spending on shipping costs..and buy an approved model off the shelf inside Australia.

Re: Moving from Aargau to Perth Australia share container

Hi,

My Husband and I are planning a move from Aargau to Perth between June and September 2016. I've been looking at quotes from relocating companies but I'd be interested in sharing a container. What are you doing for insurance and the packing??
