Santa Fe Wridgways Handy Guide to Transit Times in Australia
Would you like to know how long your personal goods will be in transit for before they arrive at your new home? Wouldn’t it make life so much easier to plan ahead of time! Well lucky you can, with the help of Wridgways. It is important to note that time frames for household deliveries around Australia depend largely on where your goods are being moved from and to and how much you plan to take with you.
Once you have determined what you’re taking, making the decision of whether to have the sole occupancy of a 20ft or 40ft container, or whether you would prefer to share a container with other peoples goods going to the same destination is so much easier! Both options have their advantages; sole occupancy containers are sent to your new destination straight away so you will have much a shorter transit time from uplift to delivery. Shared containers are great if you don’t require the full container and would like to save some money by combining with other peoples items headed for the same location. Sharing a container can have a longer transit time for this reason as the other consignments may not be ready to be sent on the same day.
Here’s Our Guide to Transit Times for Sole Occupancy Containers:
- Transit times between Capital Cities and their surrounds, so for example Melbourne to Brisbane and Perth to Adelaide we advise generally allowing between 5 and 7 business days to receive your goods.
- Household goods headed to regional areas such as Cairns, Alice Springs and Kalgoorlie we suggest allowing anywhere between 7 to 15 business days depending on the origin and delivery destinations.
Please note that this is an indication only, there are sometimes factors outside our control which can arise and speed up or delay this process.
