Shipping Furniture

We are going back to Cambodia for the second tlme in May. We fell in love with some of the handmade furniture and would like to know if anyone has any experience in shipping goods from Cambodia.We don't want to buy in Bulk, we are just interested in some outdoor furniture. We live in Australia and would appreciate any help.

Cheers Mick

Yes, I've shipped "goods" back from Cambodia to Australia on several occassions and will probably do so again on this coming trip.

In fact, on one occassion, and on behalf of the then committee of the Khmer Community of New South Wales, I commissioned the making of a complete set of the musical instruments comprising a classical Pin Peat Khmer musical ensemble and had these shipped back to Sydney for the community.

All you need is a good and reliable freight forwarder at both ends.

In fact, if your total shipment valed CIF or CFR basis is under AU$1,000. and you know what the procedures are, you can effect your own importation clearences on arrival in Australia.

But do not attempt this unless you genuinely know what you are doing.

"Furniture" means you will have some Quarantine issues to sort out prior to shipment and on arrival with AQIS. But not difficult.

Best regards. Ian

2. Re: Shipping Furniture

Does anyone have any advice RE importing wooden furniture? I wanted to get a bed made while visiting cambodia again. I was wondering if people had tried this and had success/failure.

I know in Indonesia there's a huge issue with people selling "green" (not properly aged/treated) timbers and when people get their products home the wood splits.

Anyone had stuff made/imported?

Thanks!

i would suggest make contact with a freight forwarder in Australia first as they can advise you of all the ins and outs. They should have agents in S.E Asia that look after it from this end. That is the way that I did it when I was importing.
