Australian Machinery Importing and Exporting
Exporting and exporting Australian machinery since 2010.
Importing and exporting machinery is a complex, highly regulated process.
Luckily, McLintock International is here to help.
As the leading farm machinery transport, imports and exports agent in Australia, we know the rules and we know how to ensure your goods are transported on time and in good nick.
How does importing machinery into Australia work?
If you want to import machinery to Australia – whether it’s for agriculture, mining or construction – it’s important to know the process is subject to import conditions and Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry regulations.
Permits are required for any used machinery that has come into contact with soil, animal or plant material overseas. This applies to both breakbulk and containerised machinery. Import permits must be obtained before arrival, and your imported machinery must be clean on arrival. Machinery may require dismantling for effective cleaning before you can import it into Australia and it must be kept clean during transport. If import conditions are not met, the machinery will not be released and may be returned at the importer’s expense.
McLintock International provides export and import services designed to meet these stringent requirements. As one of the leading machinery importers in Australia, we offer:
- Machinery dismantling
- Cleaning (in compliance with destination requirements)
- Collection and delivery to port
- Permit applications (import, export and transport)
- Vessel loading supervision
- Machinery imports
At McLintock, we’re hands-on so you don’t have to be. First, we attend the initial quarantine inspection on the wharf. Next, we arrange efficient, cost-effective movement of your cargo from the wharf to one of our preferred cleaning facilities. This allows us to give you a useful update on your shipment. Through our network of preferred cleaning facilities, we can provide the most competitive balance between low-cost and quick turnaround time to get your machinery released from quarantine and working for you as soon as possible.
