Lighting, LED & Furniture FAQ
What do I need to import furniture into Australia?
The type of furniture and homewares and the materials used to manufacture them determine the treatment and documentation required for importation.
Solid timber is the highest risk material and should be treated prior to export. Normal fumigants will not treat Oversize Timber exceeding 200mm in all directions. Any logs or furniture of this size needs special handling organised prior to export.
Plywood, MDF and particleboard is an engineered wood and not as high risk as solid timber. Plywood articles only require a newly manufactured plywood declaration from your supplier for clearance.
Include the type of material used in the product description on the commercial invoice or declare
on a Manufacturer’s Declaration.
Often these goods are covered with leather, wool, cotton or other soft fabric. These furnishings are normally highly manufactured and should just be included in the description of the goods. However, if any shipments contain any animal hair fabrics or unprocessed materials, please check the requirements with ICE before shipping.
What do I need to import LED products and lighting into Australia?
All electrical equipment imported, and sold in, Australia must be proven to be electrically safe. All electrical products, regardless of use, must comply with AS/NZS 3820 which is the general electrical safety standard.
Do you offer white glove service?
Yes! If your goods are fragile (such as LED screens, glass items, interior design objects or delicate lighting) we can offer a white-glove service. This type of service caters to bespoke requirements for a particular piece of cargo. This can include things like assembling goods, installation and so on.
When should I choose airfreight over sea freight?
Airfreight is the fastest method to ship your goods internationally, however, it can be more expensive. If your cargo is urgent or time-sensitive, we recommend shipping via airfreight. Otherwise, sea freight is more cost-efficient and suitable for larger consignments, heavy bulky items or dangerous goods.
