Part Load Or Full Load Removals?

At Palmers international removals, we can relocate any size shipment from a single box of clothing up to a 40ft container of household goods and cars. We regularly ship to both Cork and Dublin for complete convenience during your move from Australia to Ireland.

We provide a full up-front cost for your relocation to Ireland and will guide you through each stage of your move with expert care and attention. This will cover all costs associated with the move both in Ireland & Australia allowing you to budget for your move in confidence.

Full Container Load (FCL)

If you will be relocating to Ireland with a two-bedroom or larger shipment or transporting your car or furniture to Ireland, this international shipping solution will suit you. As a general rule of thumb, once a shipment is the equivalent of more than half a container (20 cubic metres), it is best, or most cost-effective, to relocate via an FCL rather than a shared container.

Whilst this might sound strange, the money you do save through combining shipping costs is actually outweighed by Irish customs, haulage and clearance fees. The best way to find the most cost-effective solution for your move is to arrange for a Palmers Relocations consultant to provide you with an obligation-free in-home move survey.

Groupage (Shared Consignments)

Shared Consignments refer to a shipment of multiple consignments within the one shipping container bound for Ireland. There is a large Australian expat community within Ireland so we regularly send shipments to both Cork and Dublin. These shipments are then cleared by customs and delivered to your home shortly afterwards.

Moving your Vehicle to Ireland?

It is increasingly common for those relocating from Australia to Ireland to move at least one motor vehicle with them. We relocate over 100 vehicles, boats and motorcycles each year to Ireland, each one delivered safely and securely to its destination.

When relocating to Ireland, cars can be imported in duty-free on the condition that they are not under any form of financial agreement and have been owned by the importer for over 6 months. Cars must also not be disposed of within 12 months of the move or VAT fees will apply.

To move your vehicle to Ireland, simply deliver your vehicle to one of our depots. Alternatively, we can collect your vehicle. You will need to remove the number plates to return to the RTA and provide registration and proof of ownership of the vehicle. Remember to clean the car both inside and out to avoid any unwanted quarantine cleaning fees.

Moving your Boat to Ireland

Moving a boat to Ireland is similar to moving a car. However, there are a few extra things you will need to consider. All boats entering Ireland will be checked closely for marine species needing quarantining in order to prevent any introduction into Irish waters. It is best to conduct a thorough clean of your boat before relocating to Ireland to prevent any hold-ups at customs.

Moving your Pet to Ireland

We know that your pets are an important part of your family. When moving with your pet to Ireland, we offer a range of solutions whether you are moving your dog, cat or any other animal. All we need is the weight, breed, pick up and destination location and we can organise the rest.

Shipping to Ireland

All items should be owned 6 months prior to shipping for duty-free entry and you must be in the country prior to the goods arriving otherwise a 23% VAT will apply. You do not need to be present for customs clearance in Ireland however, we arrange all this for you.

What Documentation is Required?

Documentation when moving to Ireland is relatively easy in comparison to Australia. We simply require:

  • Copy of Passport
  • 1076 transfer of residence form
  • Transfer of Residence (TOR) – PPS Declaration Document
  • Packing list – Provided by Palmers
  • Original Bill of Lading (OBL) – Provided by Palmers
  • Documentary evidence of living abroad for at least one year
  • Documentary evidence of permanent residency in Ireland
