FAQs on Moving to the UK from Australia: What to Do

Relocations WA is here to provide guidance on how to move to London from Australia and to help you understand the rules and regulations we'll both have to follow to make your move simple and stress-free. With our convenient FAQ section and helpful customer service team, moving to the UK from Perth or anywhere else in Australia couldn't be easier.

How long will it take for my goods to reach the UK from Western Australia?

The amount of time it will take to move your goods overseas will depend somewhat on where in Australia you’re moving from (Perth, Albany, somewhere more remote, etc.). Transit time will also vary depending on which vessel dates are available when you book with us.

Our standard transit time is almost always within 8-12 weeks for shared containers and within 7-9 weeks for full containers of only your belongings. We at Relocations WA will provide you with more details and a concrete shipping timeline once you’ve booked with us.

Do I have to be in the UK when my goods arrive?

Yes, in accordance with UK regulations, you’ll have to be in the country when your belongings arrive.

Will there be any taxes payable on my new furniture or any other new belongings I bring with me?

These items might have to undergo customs inspections and could be subject to charges. If you require more details, please don’t hesitate to contact our team.

Can I bring my car from Australia to the UK?

Yes! There are some regulations concerning the import process, but it’s only the basic things you’d expect, like confirming your residency status and how long you’ve owned the vehicle, as well as ensuring that the vehicle type is compliant with UK safety standards. 

You don’t have to go as far as steam-cleaning your vehicle before exporting it to the UK, though it’s recommended that it's cleaned thoroughly to minimise risk and any potential charges upon inspection.

Can I bring my own food items to the UK?

The laws regarding food items being brought into the UK are quite restrictive. As a result, your items will be inspected by the Ministry of Primary Industries, which could very well prohibit some of your food items from being brought into the UK.

If you’d like more detail about what food items may be prohibited or permitted, please call the Relocations WA team.
