Shipping Container to Belgium | Moving to Belgium
Shipping containers to Belgium from Australia
We provide affordable international shipping from Australia to Belgium.
Shipping to Brussels, Brugge, Antwerp, Ghent and most inland destinations.
Collaborating with our agents in Belgium, we are able to offer the most competitive and affordable sea-freight Door to Door relocations from Australia to Belgium with 20FT, 40FT containers, and shared container services (LCL). For excess luggage we also offer air-freight services.
We arrange export and import customs clearances, packing, loading and tracking to make your move as stress free as possible. Self pack moves are also available and can save you many thousands of dollars if you are willing to do this yourself.
Average transit time to Belgium is around 40 days and we offer weekly sailing services.
If you have a smaller amount of goods to move, for example 1-10m3 (cubic metres) we can provide a shared container services option. Shared container services are an affordable way of shipping your small amount of goods from Australia to Belgium.
While many companies offering shared container services hold your goods at their warehouse until they accumulate enough cargo to ship a full container, we offer weekly shared container services and do not wait to ship your goods!
For customers who only have excess baggage or a couple of boxes to send we can assist with excellent airfreight rates which are charged per kg. If you have any boxes or luggage to send to Belgium send us a quick email with the dimensions and weights to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond to you ASAP.
