Types of Lighting That We Customs Clear

At Platinum® we can help you to import the following types of lighting:


  • Floodlights
  • LED lights
  • Indoor lamps
  • Outdoor lamps
  • Table lamps
  • Bedside lamps
  • Lamp shades


    Importing floodlights is a great way to add extra lighting to your home or business. Floodlights can be used to illuminate dark areas, highlight features of your property or provide security lighting.

    When choosing floodlights, it is important to consider the wattage, beam spread, and mounting options. Wattage will determine how bright the light is, while beam spread determines how wide the area of illumination will be. Mounting options include wall mounted, post mounted, and ground-mounted.

    Wall-mounted floodlights are the most popular option, as they are easy to install and can be directed to shine light wherever it is needed. Post-mounted floodlights are also a popular choice, as they can be placed in a variety of locations and are not as visible as wall-mounted lights.

    Ground-mounted floodlights are typically used for security lighting or in applications where height is not an issue.

    LED lights

    Importing LED lights can be a great way to save money on lighting costs. LED’s are much more efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs as they use less electricity and last longer.

    They also generate very little heat, so they’re safer to use and don’t add to your cooling costs in the summer; and because they don’t contain any toxic chemicals, they’re better for the environment. There are a few things to keep in mind when you’re importing LED lights though:

    First, make sure that you buy from a reputable supplier. Second, be aware of import taxes. More than likely you will need to pay import GST when you import LED lights into Australia, so it’s important to factor that into the costing equation.

    Indoor lamps

    Importing indoor lamps can be a great way to add style and sophistication to any home. Indoor lamps come in a wide variety of styles, from sleek and modern to intricate and ornate. Before you start importing indoor lamps, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.

    Ensure that the lamps you have selected are compatible with Australia’s electrical system. You should also make sure that the lamps have been packaged as best to protect the transit from your supplier’s premise to your premise. Indoor lamps are fragile items and minor damage can greatly reduce their value. There are also Australian Border Force and Quarantine requirements for importing goods into Australia; as experienced brokers, we can help you with your importing needs.

    Outdoor lamps

    Importing outdoor lamps can add beauty and elegance to your front porch or backyard, and they can even help to increase the value of your home. When choosing outdoor lamps, it is important to consider the style of your home and the overall look you are trying to achieve.

    You will also need to decide which type of lamp is right for you. There are several different types of outdoor lamps available on the market, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Once you have decided which type of outdoor lamp is right for you, you will need to find a reputable supplier who can provide you with the outdoor lamp.
