Scheduling a free consultation with Hercules Moving Company is the first step for individuals looking to move to Australia. Our skilled moving specialists will discuss all your needs and requirements related to your relocation, including timeline, budget, quantity of items to be shipped and more.

This information is essential in ensuring that the move goes smoothly and successfully. We understand how daunting it can be when it comes to international moving, so our experienced team of professionals are here to make sure everything runs as efficiently as possible.

After the initial consultation, the Hercules Moving Company utilizes their state-of-the-art AI Estimating tool, Yembo.ai, to reduce the time needed for the estimate.

Our international movers consider many factors when determining the best moving estimate for a client, including size and weight of the shipment, access to the pick up and delivery locations, insurance coverage needed and other special requirements.

Every client receives a personalized approach from our experienced international moving coordinators who work hard to ensure that their needs are met and that they stay within their budget.

We strive to provide complete customer satisfaction and can even price match with any reputable movers or Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) members if necessary.

Expert Packing for Moving to Australia

It's moving day, and you have booked an international move to Australia. Most countries do not allow Packed by Owner containers (PBO), so if your items are packed by yourself and customs does not allow them, it could result in long delays and extra charges.

At Hercules Moving Company, we have years of experience in international moving, which means a team of expert packers will arrive to expertly pack your items for the big move.

Our experts use the best packing materials and techniques such as branded Alligator Wrap instead of moving blankets, and extra sturdy international moving boxes. International packing has to be performed much better than local packing due to the long overseas transportation.

We also prepare an inventory that meets all import and export requirements.

Our team will pack your items in a way that ensures they are safe during the overseas transport, so you can get settled into your new country without any worries.

Customs Clearance When Moving to Australia

Moving to another country is never easy, and there are many steps and considerations involved in making sure a move goes as smoothly as possible. Once the packing is done for an international move, the shipment will be loaded up and shipped off to its destination using the customer's preferred method.

In the case of moving to Australia, a lot of additional attention needs to be paid when it comes to customs clearance.

Customs clearance requires a great deal of experience when it comes to navigating complex regulations and requirements. Our professionals have the expertise needed to ensure that all items are cleared for entry into Australia hassle-free.

Furthermore, we provide personalized support throughout the process so that clients have someone they can rely on if they have any questions or concerns.

Our customs clearance services ensure that all shipments arrive on time and without any issues. We make sure that all documentation is completed correctly, helping clients to avoid delays while also having peace of mind when it comes to moving their items overseas.

With our knowledge and expertise in handling international moves, we make sure that our clients experience a smooth transition when moving to Australia.

Delivery to Australia

Once the items have cleared customs, they will be delivered to the client's new home overseas. Our trusted agent in the destination country will handle this process of delivery, also known as destination service. As an additional service, clients can choose door-to-door service which includes delivery.

They also have the option of handling delivery themselves if they prefer to do so. Debris removal is included in the service if it is on the same moving day, a free service which helps to maintain their new home clean and tidy.

Our delivery services are designed to help individuals focus on settling into their new home without having to worry about the logistics of moving.

The movers can even help stage furniture as desired in a new home! With Hercules Moving Company's international movers to Australia, you can rest assured that we will take care of all your delivery needs when you are relocating to Australia.

What Clients say About Us

I was very satisfied with Hercules Moving Company. They made it easy and stress free for us. They arrived on time and packed and professionally covered our furniture to go into storage, since we are in between houses. I was amazed by how they were able to efficiently pack and store a 5 bedroom, 2 living room, office and a gym into a storage unit where they organized everything to fit perfectly. This wasn't an easy job and I was 100% satisfied with their service and would recommend them to anyone looking for good quality movers. Thanks Hercules Moving company for helping us move!

Karolis S.

I couldn't have been happier with my move. It went way better than I expected. Everything was perfect from time of "my guys" arrival till everything was totally finished and cleaned up - beds and dining room table put together. All I can add is, if you're moving, call Hercules - the best Victoria movers. Thank you to all of you for a wonderful move!

Private User

These Burlington movers did a great job moving my wife and I out of our downtown condo. Took care of everything they moved, and did things quickly and efficiently. The quote itself was reasonable and compared well to others. Will use them again for future moves.

Chose because of availability and prices which were lower than other quotes received. These piano movers Vancouver arrived on time and were quick, friendly and handled the piano with care. Would definitely recommend.


Hercules Movers were great to deal with and very professional. Ottawa movers were on time with very friendly movers who even called to update us on their departure and arrival. We had a great experience and recommend them.

I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Edmonton movers. Igor from Hercules answered all my questions and provided a quote that was the best of the five other moving companies I called. The movers arrived promptly and working quickly but with considerable care and had everything packed up much quicker than expected. We were simply blown away by the professional demonstrated by both movers. Very satisfied customer.

I recently had a packing and moving with Hercules! Excellent customer service, polite and everything on time! Michael and his team did a wonderful job and I am very glad I planned my move with this company! Highly recommend!

Hercules movers moved our [very heavy & expensive] upright piano from Toronto to Stratford. These two brothers exercised thoroughness and care with the move. The brothers were very personable and professional. The piano was well wrapped, stairs were covered in blankets and our wood floor received no new grooves or scratches. Highly recommended. Choose The best from Moving companies Toronto.

Andrea Phillips

I have used the hardworking gentlemen of Hercules Moving twice now for work related moving circumstances. Very professional and quickly executed moves. They are my go to movers from now on.

Great moving experience with the best Scarborough movers I have ever met in Toronto. Arrived with a team of 3 guys and moved a 4500sq2 house within 8 hours. Amazing service!

Private Customer

Hercules is by far the most efficient, customer friendly and experienced Edmonton movers I have dealt with. They took such good care of furniture and personal belongings and made a stressful move seem effortless. I would not hesitate to use them again. For a five star, hassle free service, with great care and attention, I would recommend Hercules.

Donald Quan

I used Hercules for a non-piano move for the first time from their Storage Toronto. I expected only the best service from them as I’ve experienced how they treat Concert pianos and they delivered 100%. The time and cost they quoted was exactly what it took. They really know how to quote their services. No surprises....so rare in a moving company. They came over-prepared with blankets, stair coverings, wrappings, mega tape. They were not about to let anything happen to my valuable stuff. Best movers I’ve ever used.....they almost take moving to an art form.

I have used the services of Hercules Moving Company multiple times, both for personal relocation and office moving of a large company. Ottawa office movers are professionals in their field, they are neat, clean and do their job well! If you have any questions related to the office move or moving in general, I recommend always contacting this company.

I called Hercules movers because I needed to transfer furniture from the office in Ottawa to the warehouse in a short time. In response, the moving specialist offered me several payment options, packing materials to purchase and available time slots to choose. Four movers and a truck were required for the relocation, which successfully appeared on the day of the move. Office movers transported everything quickly, nevertheless without the rush. I didn’t assume that all furniture pieces will be received so fast.

The team came in and did a great job moving our grand piano from the second floor to the main level. It took a while for the team to assess how to do it but when they brought in the cavalry to help out it was quite impressive to see them get the job done. I would definitely recommend this happy bunch!
