Shipping to Japan from Australia can be difficult.

Moving Your World has the right people and approach to minimise the stress of moving while tailoring the shipping quotation to your specific needs.
We offer the most affordable international container shipping rates with a no compromise quality of service.

If you are planning to move your personal belongings and/or your motor vehicle to Japan we can offer 20FT and 40FT container shipping services with self pack or professionally packed shipping options.

Yes we also cater to smaller moves with both LCL and airfreight services for sending boxes or excess baggage to Japan.

20FT and 40FT containers (FCL) are handled less than other options and your goods are therefore less liable to be damaged during transit.

LCL (shared container services) are a great way to ship 1m3 – 10m3 without paying the price of a full 20FT container. LCL is charged per cubic meter and an affordable method for shipping items that are too large for postal services but not large enough quantities to warrant a full 20FT container.
Door to Door and Depot to Depot shipping options available.

Avoid penalties and storage fees by planning ahead for the receiving party to be in the country and available at the time of import. Completing all paperwork ahead of time ensures smooth processing and allows for any mistakes to be rectified before the shipment arrives.
