Whether you are looking for adventure, career advancement, the perfect work life balance or planning your retirement, Brisbane really is a dream destination. Here are some of the primary reasons for moving to Brisbane;

  • Queensland is not called the Sunshine State for nothing. Brisbane rarely has single digit temperatures and boasts an average of 8-9 sunshine hours a day.
  • Brisbane is a centre of excellence for tourism, engineering, IT, healthcare, and innovation, for the entire Asia Pacific region. It attracts worldwide attention and boasts numerous employment, research, and study opportunities.
  • The city is a gateway and transport hub to all of Queensland. It is served by large rail, ferry and bus networks, the third largest port in Australia, and an international airport.
  • Brisbane is routinely voted amongst the world’s most livable cities. While the city is steeped in history, and attractions, it’s also less than 90 minutes’ drive to both the Sunshine and Gold Coasts.
  • Brisbane is a rich melting pot of cultural and ethnic diversity. It is often called the city of many nations, with over 31% of residents born outside Australia. Brisbane welcomes people from different backgrounds and celebrates their differences.

What our Service to Brisbane Includes

Ausmove provide a full door to door international removals service to Brisbane, so there’s no need to worry about a thing. Here’s a summary of what we have to offer;

Shipping Options to Brisbane

Most Ausmove customers use sea freight to send their household goods and personal effects to Brisbane. There are various options depending on budget, individual needs, and circumstances. These include;

  • Sending your belongings in a shared or groupage container. This is highly recommended if you are on a tight budget or have a smaller shipment. That’s because you only pay your share of the shipping costs. Although this is the slowest shipping option, that’s not always the case with Ausmove. That’s because we have a high frequency of groupage containers going into the port of Brisbane.
  • Full Container Load (FCL) or sole use container. This is the recommended option if you’re shipping a whole house load or wish to send a vehicle to Brisbane. There are both 20 foot and 40-foot container options. It’s often possible for us to pack and load at residence and take your container straight to the port, without excessive handling. While this option is slightly more expensive, it is generally quicker and can save you money on transit accommodation costs.
  • Airfreight is also a popular method of shipping into Brisbane. This is extremely quick and often used to send a smaller shipment in advance of sea freight. Our offices are perfectly positioned right beside Auckland airport, which speeds up the process even further. It’s particularly popular for customers who have young children or need quick access to their tools of trade, sporting, or office equipment. Many customers use airfreight to reduce the amount of time and cost of a prolonged stay in hotel style transit accommodation.


The security of your personal information is very important in today’s digital world. You don’t want your financial information, passport copies, destination address etc falling into the wrong hands. You can be assured that Ausmove collect, use, disclose and protect your personal information in strict compliance with the New Zealand Privacy Act and high level EU (GDPR) standards.

Ausmove and our Brisbane service partners are connected by Moveware, the industry’s most advanced move management software. Your move details and personal information are transferred seamlessly, within the same secure system. Information is ‘ring fenced’ within the system and is only available to individual staff members on a need to know basis. To enable the physical security of your belongings we provide carefully screened and trained packing and stowing staff, alarmed and patrolled facilities and standardised inventory controls on both sides of the Tasman.
