WHAT ARE THE RISKS I SHOULD BE AWARE OF?
The main risks of moving big pieces of freight often include;
Loss or damage to the cargo
Even containerised machinery can still encounter the risk of damage. Working with reputable service providers will help ensure better handling and care of your import conditions.
Cargo is too big to fit in a container
Big bulky items can be difficult to accommodate and handle in shipping containers and require dismantling. The more an item can be in a dismantled state the better.
Licenses required to import machinery
Getting in contact with the relevant authority department prior to shipping and getting your import permit issued on time will help ensure a smoother process.
We have experience in contaminated machinery and will help ensure an effective cleaning has occurred to pass quarantine protocols and get customs clearance.
Biosecurity Risk Material
To protect plant and animal health all machines will be inspected for BRM to ensure their safe usage in Australia. Machinery cleanliness will be heavily scrutinized, especially in used machinery.
Imported machinery requires a skilled and experienced team like the one at DAZMAC to help mitigate these risks involved.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SHIP?
Each shipping company or customs broker has different timelines due to the specifics of the import requirements; permit applications, customs, ensuring that you meet import conditions, machinery cleanliness, the route that the shipment needs to take and even the direction.
For example, Australia to New Zealand can take approximately 10 days, but Australia to New Zealand is usually around 30 days. We’ve provided other estimations for other popular routes that you might expect.
- Australia to Europe – 80 days.
- Europe to Australia – 45 days
- Australia to USA – 45 days
- USA to Australia – 45 days
Linked is our RORO Shipping Schedule, which you can use to get an example of the length of shipping times your import machinery to Australia may take. This would only be indicative though, and only once we fully understand the extent of your shipping needs, would a more accurate time be available.
Working with a reputable company in Australia, to handle these more complex jobs, ensuring your machinery arrives on time, can help prevent delays and avoid delays.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it worth importing heavy machinery into Australia?
While sometimes you won’t have a choice, importing machinery requires much less effort than you may think when you have experts like DAZMAC helping you. We make sure your transport is imported safely with every import permit taken care of. Our ability to manage the whole importing machinery into Australia process on your behalf, makes the task more worthwhile.
How do I avoid delays when importing machinery?
In most cases, delays are caused by incomplete paperwork, or the equipment doesn’t clear customs or border controls. You can prevent delays by ensuring that the machinery is ready for shipping in a clean and dismantled state. This will allow inspection officers easier access to all areas of your import, for a quicker evaluation.
What does a RO/RO Shipping Vessel look like?
If you’ve ever wanted to see the inside of the vessel that gets machinery transported, we created a special virtual tour of a RO/RO vessel for you to get a better understanding of what they look like.
Does used machinery differ from new machinery?
Yes. A used machine will be subject to far greater scrutiny from border controls, especially those used items that have come in contact with Biosecurity Risk Materials, like plant material.
