How to move to Australia from Brighton?

Because of the large distance from the UK to Australia, the best choice is likely to be the plane, so that the journey will be reduced to a minimum. But what about personal things. Whether it is better - sea shipping or air freight?

When we need to ship our private goods to Australia, there are a few options to choose from, but the two basic methods of transport are air freight and shipping by sea (container shipping). Whether you are an entrepreneur sending regular freight or private individuals moving to Australia, you need to decide on the way of transport before you contact  Brighton removal companies. There are two main factors to be taken into account when making decisions.

  1. Shipping costs

    One of the main factors taken into consideration are shipping costs to Australia. What would be cheaper? Transport by sea or air transport?

    Sea shippingIt is widely accepted that shipping by sea is cheaper in comparison to air freight. Usually it is, but there are exceptions. To be able to make the right decision you need to know how the fee is charged by the carriers. Most Brighton shipping companies charge per container rates (commonly used are 20ft and 40ft containers). It would seem that in the case of shipping by sea price is calculated based on the weight of the load, but more often the price is based on the size of the load. In case of loads smaller than container, price may be based on cubic volume of your shipment. The rule is that the larger and heavier loads is more profitable to transport by sea. The smaller the load, the smaller the difference in price and sometimes it is cheaper to send a small parcel by air than by sea.

  2. Shipping time

    When it comes to time without a doubt wins air transport, but it brings a much greater costs. The average time of sea transport to Australia (whatever you are shipping to Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or other locations) is 4-8 weeks but by air it can be delivered even in a few days. So if you need to send only a few boxes you can consider air transport, in other cases, especially in case of shipping belongings to Australia, container shipping is the only choice.

By inventing containers, their normalization and ships designed for container transport, maritime transport has become the main mode of transport during in case of removals to Australia. Transport by container, it is not only the safety of shipping, ease of cargo handling, but also less expensive moving costs.
