Container Shipping To Australia from UK
Melbourne is at the heart of Australia's import and export business. Fastlane specialises in giving you the fastest possible transit time. Fastlane have minimised the expense and maximised the service you receive allowing you to feel at ease throughout the whole process. Apart from Melbourne, we can also ship to Brisbane, Fremantle, port Kembla and Sydney.
Commercial Shipping in Containers
Exporting to Melbourne can be very expensive therefore Fastlane offer a shared container. This then allows for your goods to be shipped with the same quality at only a percentage of the price. This is good for business. It allows all types of machinery to be shipped at only a percentage of the price of a whole container.
Fastlane can ship almost any type of machinery from car engines to oil pipelines. This allows all trade to take advantage of the fast, effective and outstanding service we can provide week in week out.
Shipping personal effects in containers
Personal effects would usually be house hold items. Fastlane offer 20ft, 40ft and 40ft high cube (sizes given below) containers to cover all possible shipment to Australia. However if there are just a few things that you want to ship there is always the shared container option. This is the ability to only pay a fraction of the price but maintain the quality service.
Not only is it better for you financially it eases the economic footprint you leave behind. Between the quality service and the low prices you will not have to worry one bit about your shipment.
