Living in Christmas Island
Christmas Island is an Australian territory, located 960 miles north-west of Australia in the Indian Ocean, near the south coast of Java in Indonesia. It is a very small island, with an area of just 52 square miles, and its population reflects this; there were 1,843 inhabitants according to the 2016 Census. The capital of the island is called Flying Fish Cove, which is also the main settlement. Much of the remaining area of the island is relatively untouched by humans; 63% of the Island is included in the Christmas Island National Park. The lack of human intervention in the environment is a primary reason for the National Park status, with the island having a large variety of unique species of both plants and wildlife and thus being of significant scientific interest. Despite the small population, a range of languages are spoken on the island, including English, Malay and Chinese. The predominant religions practiced are Islam and Buddhism. Economically, the closure of phosphate mines in 1987 meant that Christmas Island has no real export or industry. But the Island is known for its culture, shaped mainly by the various religions that co-exist harmoniously and are the basis of a range of festivals and celebrations. Tourism is relatively small-scale, but these festivals are a pull for many, as are the fishing opportunities in the region, and the unique environmental features.

What are the shipping methods for removals from the UK to Christmas Island?
Removals to Christmas Island via Air Freight
If you need your belongings in Christmas Island in a hurry, airfreight is the quickest transit method to move your possessions internationally. Removals via air freight are highly convenient, but this does come with a higher price tag. Your quote for Christmas Island Removals is calculated based on the weight of your consignment, meaning it is not so economical for larger loads such as an entire home.
If you are only sending a one bedroom flat, some boxes of clothes or a few items of furniture to Christmas Island but you require them urgently, air freight is a convenient transport method. Many Movecorp customers will make use of our air freight to Christmas Island service cooperatively with another method of transportation. Such as sending a small number of items they need as a priority via air freight and everything else they can send via sea freight to cut costs.
Another factor that might influence the cost of your Removals to Christmas Island via air freight is what happens with your goods upon their arrival in Christmas Island. You can choose to collect your goods at the airport yourself, or you can request that diligent moving teams deliver your goods to the kerbside of your new home.
Removals to Christmas Island via Sea Freight
For Removals to Christmas Island, sea freight is one of the most favoured transport methods due to its cost-effectiveness and ease for our clients. Removals to Christmas Island via sea freight can sometimes be a slow process, therefore we advise that you allow ample time for your delivery.
Shared container load is the ideal Removals to Christmas Island choice if you have a small consignment such as a one bedroom flat, a studio apartment or a small office space. All of your goods and furnishings will be wrapped, packed and loaded onto a shared shipping container to Christmas Island and you will only pay for the space this baggage occupies.
Dedicated container load is the recommended Christmas Island Removals method if you are sending an entire home load or a large commercial office space. You will pay to receive the sole use of a 20ft or 40ft shipping container. A 20ft container will fit a three-bedroom home comfortably and 40ft is sufficient space if you want to send a vehicle amongst other goods.
