Sea freight will take upwards of three months to arrive in australia, then it will go through customs and be subject to I think 10% of total retail value in customs tax payable by the receiver.

You could try DHL.

No problem, glad I could help. I wish I had better news as far as the shipping costs.. I don't have any experience shipping freight/cargo by boat so I don't know how much it would cost.

With the total quantities you've listed it would probably be a little under $400 to get this all shipped via USPS (not including customs fees or add-on services like Insurance), but it definitely beats the $1000+ UPS would charge.

can you provide a link please?

thanks for that import information into Australia. That was very helpful. So will I need to delcare that the good exceed over $1000, or will my relatives in Australia need to make the declaration?

What is DHL?

Private postal companies are extremely expensive in the area of shipping internationally. You may ship via USPS Priority and splitting shipments, this is the best way, no doubt.

DHL, FedEx, UPS are not reasonable options.

*DHL is also a private postal company.
*You need to declare the actual value of the product you're sending. You'd better declare it as the real value. Maybe your relatives will have to pay taxes, but since the value of the goods you are sending is very high, the real value should be declared, so if something unexpected happens, the insurance will cover the loss.

I am mainly looking at sea freight, and was wondering if anybody knew a reliable company. I looked through some forums, and it looks like it took around 6 weeks for the goods to arrive, which is fine by my relatives.

In tersm of declaring total value, I talked to my relatives, and they told me to send it as a gift with a total value of US$1000. Now, what are the repurcussions of this? And what are the chances the customs officers will actually conclude the total value is greater than US$1000 - and if so, will I face consequences?

So declare the value as 999$
But you should note that because of the weight and size of the packages, they will be inspected in the customs for sure, and your relatives would have to pay importing taxes.

Anyway, USPS doesn't have sea freight delivery option, since everything there is going by air.

And I don't think that either FedEx, UPS or DHL have surface mail as an option, because every package sent via them will be expedited...

12 Weeks minimum for goods to arrive by sea in Australia from the US, I use sea fright all the time.

Besides declaring it a lower value gift being highly illegal (postal fraud), will result in all goods being confiscated, and yourself wearing a very very large fine and possible court appearance in Australia. The goods will most likely be opened and the customs officers will know the retail value of each product in Australia or they will check. If it totals more than $1000 your in a lot of trouble and most likely so are your relatives.

It wont matter who it gets sent with, You have no choice but to pay the correct import taxes, if you lie about it your stuff is gone. It would have been far cheaper and smarter to buy the goods in Australia.

Listen to what was said here. Its never wise to not play by the rules when customs is involved.

You should split it into a few smaller shipments, you could try negotiation prices with ups they let you if you open an account with them, i do a ton of international shipping with my work and we get a huge discount with ups. Youre best bets are ups fedex dhl or usps if you go with anyone else youll also need a customs broker to get your shipment out. If you were closer to nh wecould have met up and id help you out, but your quite a ways away.

your best bet is to ship in multipule boxes using usps........always use the correct value of the items for insurance... if you mark them as gifts and stager them you might not get hit with import duties
