Shipping ?

Has anyone shipped something from the US to their new country where your shipment came right to your door? Before moving I shipped some stuff to Oz, but it only went to the port and we had to pick it up and go through customs and it was a huge hassle.  There are a few furniture pieces I want to have shipped here, but I really don't want to have to go get it at the port,  I would much rather it come right to my door.  Is this normal procedure to have it go to the port, or is it possible to come right to my house? Does anyone know/recommend a company that does this? TIA

  • I used Robinsons International, they do door to door and I am 99% sure they ship to Australia too. We had no problems with them at all!

  • Yeah, you just need to specify when making the shipping arrangements that you want it door to door instead of door to port. 


  • Thanks ladies, I will definitely look up Robinsons.  Last time I shipped they asked if I wanted them to take care of all the customs forms, etc, and I said yes, but obviously that didn't happen! It was the biggest pain in the butt to get my stuff.  I am definitely getting door to door this time!

  • our shipping company handled all the stuff at the docks & delivered to our door, granted that was from the UK to the OZ, but you definitely can arrange it

    we used excess baggage, but again - I think that's just UK to OZ

    definitely look around for a company that has offices here, then you can find out if they will do 'door to door' shipping as they call it:)

  • Thanks, I will do that.  I should have just asked you this afternoon, but I forgot all about it!
