Laws that apply to Moving Machinery
The transportation of heavy machinery requires structured adherence to Australian standards and laws to gain approval for import. In order to lighten the load of preparing machinery for moving, Kenter has prepared a list of tips to assist you in successfully moving your machinery in a seam-free and smooth moving experience.
The very first port of call for anyone considering the importing of machinery in any form whether it is agricultural machinery or other is to ensure full adherence to the Australian Government Quarantine requirements.
With one of the most stringent importing policies in the world, Australia has a good deal of assets to protect, and when the importing of machinery in our country can compromise the balance of our country, it is imperative that all Quarantine standards are thoughtfully addressed according to set guidelines for your machinery type.
If your machinery is being transported to another country, it is equally important to ensure all guidelines regarding the importing of machinery into that country are carefully considered and provided for. In most cases, the cleaning of machinery and thorough washing to remove organic materials, which pose a threat to the clearing of your machinery for shipment, will be addressed in assessment.
Machines made to move.
In an import situation where machinery needs to be brought into Australia, the laws and guidelines can seem overwhelming. At this point, Kenter is able to step in and offer you advice and resolution for your concerns. There is a broad range of situations in which we can ship machinery and our staffs is trained specially to provide assistance in getting your machinery to where it needs to be.
What will happen if my machinery is deemed under quarantine standard?
Here is where it is really important to ensure the equipment is up to scratch before you attempt to ship it. AQUIS, or the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service, has the power to re-export machinery that poses a threat to the country at your expense- a costly and unnecessary outcome for you.
A stitch in time…
If your machine can be dismantled for cleaning, it is recommended that you do so, as the stringent laws require precise inspection to take place. Organic matter poses a serious threat to the country and it is a mistake to take the opinion of near enough being good enough. Authorities are also known to check the painting of machinery to ensure organic material has not been painted over either intentionally or by mistake before shipment.
Air-conditioned machinery can incur extra expense.
Many machines with air conditioning will be required to be de-gassed before shipment. If your machine is placed in a category, which required the de-commissioning of the air-conditioning feature, and failure to apply the requirement before shipment occurs, then the machinery may be decommissioned at your expense before freighting. In order to avoid further costs, it makes sense to check and see where you machine stands in this category.
Marine Insurance is certainly worth considering, and is not covered by initial quotes unless specified. Kenter is able to provide quotes for marine insurance and a thorough assessment that gives you much needed reassurance when it comes to shipping heavy machinery.
