HOW TO IMPORT INDIAN FURNITURE INTO AUSTRALIA?

Before we begin with these details, in the interest of full disclosure, we have to mention that we are manufacturers of Indian furniture ourselves & we currently work with a couple of large retail stores. We love working in the country thanks to the love Aussies show for Indian designs & carved Indian wood furniture and also due to the fact that conversing, forging meaningful business partnerships and trading is a whole lot easier when compared to other nations

Does that mean we cannot share some unbiased information on how you should go about procuring furniture from India? Of course not! In fact, that's exactly what we'll do & you can decide for yourself if you'd want to work with us, or at least, consider us in the running.

Firstly, it is always a great idea to know which types of furniture are a country's strengths due to the ecosystem of raw materials, skilled labour & favorable government policies. India is known for housing several wooden furniture manufacturers that use both solid wood & engineered wood types. You'll find both handcrafted wooden furniture in traditional styles & even mass-manufactured furniture in contemporary designs

Also, metal based furniture is also popular across India but you'll only find cast iron, mild steel and wrought iron furniture & the country is not known for aluminum & stainless steel furniture. Essentially, handmade metal furniture suppliers & a few mid century furniture suppliers is pretty much most of it. Lastly, the country is also well known for inlaid furniture designs, this includes the bone inlay furniture that we make, stone inlay furniture & more. 

Secondly, akin to the trend in most manufacturing-oriented countries, there are only a couple of hubs in India that make furniture at such a massive scale, with great prices & in high-quality materials & designs. Jodhpur is by far the most popular one, this is also where FurnitureRoots is based in.

You can now browse through some interesting Indian furniture products, after which we'll explain a standard process of importing furniture from India to Australia. This is also where we shamelessly plug-in our services, you can get in touch with us to access our digital catalog or you can just get in touch with us to know more about our batch manufacturing program & how you can import high-quality furniture from us at low cost, despite low quantity requirements

      PROCESS FOR IMPORTING FURNITURE INTO AUSTRALIA

      The law for importing stuff into Australia is actually quite friendly and simple and generally does not require any special permits or licenses. However, a few items do fall under what is called the Biosecurity Import Conditions (BIOCON) and wood + wood derivates do fall under the purview of the same. These protocols mandate you to furnish proof of treatment & processes that the imported item has gone through. (All of which we furnish). You may check out a full list of the items that are required to furnish these details here

      Apart from this the procedure is pretty standard and involves the following steps (simplified)

    • Obtaining what is known as a CI (commercial invoice) that you will submit to your bank in Australia
    • Using the CI as a proof, you'll be opening an LC (letter of credit) on your account in Australia
    • provided the adequate funds as per the CI is available in your account, the LC issuing bank in Australia will share the LC with our bank (or the bank of the exporter that you choose to work with)
    • Once we onboard the goods through our freight forwarding agent, the shipping company will share what is called a bill of lading with us
    • It is this bill of lading which we share with our bank, the bank in turn shares this bill of lading to the LC issuing bank in Australia (your bank) which then dispatches the payment & the goods will reach your site within a week!
