International Removals Process
We will come to your home and conduct an extensive pre-move survey before establishing a detailed plan for your moving day. With the option for our international removals team to take care of everything, we will ensure we know every part of your move, in detail, what is being left, what needs to go into storage, and specialist packaging needed for valuable or fragile items. We may also be able to carry out your pre-move survey remotely with our app.
We will supply you with the high-quality packing materials necessary for the safe transit of your items, or, as part of our inclusive service we will come and pack everything for you if you would prefer. Once everything is packed, we will load everything into one of our shipping containers and ensure your belongings are ready for transit to your destination.
For our standard international house removal service, we will arrange for your items to be shipped in containers, however, in the instances where there is a distinct timeframe or rush, we can have them sent via air instead. Although shipping your goods by air is faster and more direct, this service comes at a premium.
Shipping Options: Air Vs Sea Freight.
There are two ways to transport your items overseas; by sea or air. Both are extremely good options to consider, however, there are some important differences that you need to be aware of.
Sea Freight is our standard service option and is the cheaper option, available for long-distance trips with a longer deadline. With an average shipping time of 2 weeks to a month, depending on the location.
Air Freight is the more premium option available, and is an extremely useful option for people who are subject to a quicker timeline. With the ability to access more remote locations, air freight is the more direct option. However, with the stringent restriction on what you can transport by weight, size and product, air freight is best used in certain instances.
International Relocation Agents
Our international relocation agents will be able to help you with the customs and paperwork, and we’ll ensure everything is barcoded as we load it, giving you a detailed inventory to hand over when your belongings arrive at your new international home. We also have specialist equipment and packing materials for the more unusual items that you may wish to move, so please let us know your requirements and we’ll tailor the move around your needs.
