Expats considering shipping items to Adelaide will first need to decide what to lug along on their move Down Under, and whether it’s worth it. Shipping can quickly become expensive, and Adelaide has plenty of opportunities to purchase items upon arrival.
Shipping smaller items to Adelaide
Expats should keep in mind that sending fewer than 20 boxes through a commercial shipper is not worth the high cost. Private companies are more expensive than local post offices, so it’s vital to consider all the options and conduct proper research. Expats should consider air mail if they need items delivered quickly; this is expensive though, so less urgent items should be shipped by sea.
