International Removals

International  Removals is possibly one of the biggest decisions any family can make. We have all heard the adages about poor planning and what it leads to, which are mostly correct. With effective planning even complex international moves can be handled efficiently, economically and with the least possible disruption to your family.

We are now one of the UK’s largest international moving companies, shipping household possessions from the UK to any destination across the globe, and from any country back to the UK. We have the national and international resources to provide professional shipping and storage services that are reliable, cost-effective and responsive to our customer’s demands.

International Removals

Moving household possessions for international shipping is not like moving in the UK or even to Europe. International moves, for example, moving to Australia are a completely different process involving export packing, container loading, shipping, export documentation, customs and the observance of local regulations and procedures at destination. But that’s all in a day’s work for us.

White & Company your first choice

With over a century of experience of moving families across the world, we will take care of all the details and help you achieve a stress free move.

If you are moving overseas we can deliver your possessions to anywhere in the world including Australia, Canada, China, New Zealand, South Africa and removals to the USA.

The earlier you plan your International moving the less stressful the move should be. To start planning contact our experienced team who will take you through the process. Contact your local branch using our branch locator where you will find a telephone number to call, or complete the contact form below and we will contact you. When you are ready we will arrange for one of our surveyors to visit you. For further information of the services White & Company offer read our online international moving brochure.

Whether you need to send an entire household or your just shipping boxes to South Africa, by sea or by air, we’ll get it there, safe and sound, anywhere in the world. And we will provide you with two months storage in the UK absolutely free of charge.

Packing solutions

Packing for international shipping from UK is a specialist skill, so we have experienced and professionally-trained staff to provide this service for you. We’ll decide what type of packing and wrapping is necessary during the pre-move survey.

We’ll use modern, environmentally-friendly, purpose-made packing materials to pack all your possessions ready for moving.  China and glassware are wrapped in special paper and then packed in double-thickness cartons; furniture is wrapped in bubble blanket for extra protection; and items requiring specialist care, such as antiques, can be packed in made-to-measure wooden crates if necessary.

Air Freight Services

Air Freight and LCL, (Less than Container Load) cargo is over-cased in purpose–built, tri-wall board cases for optimum protection.
We ship globally to thousands of destinations, including Europe, Canada and shipping to South Africa. For further information on shipping goods to Australia or anywhere else, contact our international office on 01489 854175.

Marine Insurance

We are proud of the International Moving service we provide our customers and we always try to minimise problems during the moving process.
However, it pays to be aware that your possessions are exposed to a number of inherent risks which are outside our control whilst your goods are in transit and/or storage. We recommend that you consider protecting your valuable personal possessions whilst in transit and/or storage with our “All Risk” Marine Standard Liability cover.

Marine Insurance Cover is offered to you on receipt of a completed Overseas Valuation Form.  Such Marine Insurance Cover is ‘Comprehensive’ and ‘All Risk’ and is based on the values as declared by you on the Overseas Valuation Form.  There are certain exclusions as detailed within our Terms and Conditions.
Limit of Liability

If you have owner packed possessions, or do not provide us with a declaration of value, or if you do not require us to accept Marine Insurance, then our liability to you will be a maximum of £40 per item if anything is lost or damaged as a result of negligence or breach of contract on our part.

Please see our Terms & Conditions for full information. For further information on our international removals to Australia or to discuss shipping to Canada, South Africa or Europe, contact our international office on 01489 854175 shipping container
