Crown’s Worldwide Quality Program ensures that our customers receive the best service possible every step of the way. This includes tested and perfected Packing Techniques that see thousands of containers moved every year, as well as workers who embody our unique set of brand values and way of doing things. 

There are a number of different options available when it comes to moving your furniture and valuables to Australia. 

  • Shared containers are a popular choice and often used for small shipments of items. These containers are often shared with other Crown customers and are very cost efficient as you only pay for the space you use.
  • Sole-Use Shipping Containers are most often used for full house loads and ensure a quick relocation over the Tasman.
  • For things you just can’t live without, we provide an Air Freights service which is the quickest method of international transportation. 

All of your furniture will be packed and wrapped by our team who comply with internationally recognised standards and our company’s customer-first philosophy. All quotes are for a full door-to-door service and include shipping, the AQIS Inspection Fee (which a lot of companies exclude) and delivery to your new home. We are also able to fully assist with the relocation of pets and vehicles if needed.
