Shipping & Transporting Internationally
Full Container Loads (FCL):
This service is ideal for extensive home removals. We will load and seal your household possessions into a 20ft or 40ft metal container at your residence, and then transport the container to the shipping vessel. This option is highly recommended for hull house removals or if you require your items by a specific date.
Your container will be delivered directly to the port at your destination, making it the faster and more direct option as there is no consolidation period.
Our team can load and seal the container at your home, provided there is adequate access.
Less than a Container Load (LCL):
If you have a smaller consignment that is too large for air shipping but not enough to fill a container, our export packing team can wrap and pack your belongings at your home. We will then transport the items back to our depot and load them into plywood cases before transferring them to a metal container for shipping. This option offers an affordable solution for urgent shipments to unusual destinations where groupage services may not be available. However, please be aware that transit times may be slightly longer than other shipping options.
Our groupage service is an excellent option for those who are looking to move their belongings abroad whilst keeping in mind a more economically viable option. By grouping smaller shipments together, we can offer significant cost savings to our customers. Not only is it a more affordable option, but it also reduces the environmental impact of shipping by utilising space more efficiently. Our team will carefully pack and consolidate each shipment to make sure that all items are protected during transit.
We offer regular groupage services to popular international destinations, making it easier and more accessible for our customers to move their belongings overseas. With our groupage service, you can rest assured that your belongings will arrive at their destination safely and securely.
If seed is of the upmost importance, then air freight is the optimal choice. This service is perfect for those who need to transport a few boxes or only essential items when moving home. As we have partnered with some of the largest airfreight carriers, we can provide a professional and swift solution without compromising on quality of service.
We offer comprehensive air freight services, which include collection from your residence, delivery to relevant freight forwarders, complete customs clearance, and all necessary paperwork. Upon arrival at your new destination, we can also arrange delivery to your new residence overseas.
Air freight is the best option for transporting items that you cannot do without on arrival, such as selected clothes and favourite children’s toys that will help you settle in quickly.
When it comes to moving goods abroad, shipping by sea is often the most economical choice for larger moves. It is a great option if you are planning to relocate your furniture, car, or other large personal belongings. While the transit time can be longer compared to airfreight, it is a reliable and cost-effective solution for a full house move.
Some individuals may opt to combine sea transportation with airfreight for essential items that need to arrive quickly. With years of experience in international shipping, we can help you choose the best method of transportation to meet your needs and budget. Our team can assist with all aspects of the process, from packing and loading to customs clearance and delivery.
