International Shipping Options
All belongings heading overseas are shipped via sea or airfreight, with options available to suit every budget. To cater for these needs, you can choose to ship your items either via a part-load or full load shipping container. For faster transit times, items can be sent via airfreight.
Part & Full Load Containers
If you’re not planning to ship an entire house load of goods, our ‘Part Load’ option is highly recommended. Your possessions will be shipped to the same destination as other customers in a shared container, so you only pay for the space used. Part loads are ideal for customers looking for a cost effective international moving solution who do not mind waiting slightly longer to receive their goods.
Alternatively, if you plan to ship a full house of goods overseas, our ‘Full Load’ option is recommended. This gives you far greater flexibility as you will be charged for the entire shipping container. Our team in the UK will pack your effects into our vehicles and transport them to our export packing depot, your belongings will be loaded into a container ready to be shipped overseas to your desired destination.
For items that require expedited shipping, airfreight offers much faster transit times. For families moving internationally over a long distance, this is useful for taking necessary essentials in a hurry. Most air carriers offer direct, consolidated and trans-shipment options. All goods are securely packaged to ensure maximum protection during transit to your destination.

Frequently Asked Questions
Transit times can differ based on your destination country. In general, a full-load container is the quickest sea freight choice, while part-load shipping naturally takes longer, especially when heading to less frequently serviced destinations. If speed is a priority, airfreight is the fastest method for transporting your goods, but it’s essential to keep in mind that it comes with a higher cost and may restrict the volume of goods you can transport.
A cost-effective method of shipping goods overseas is to use a part-load shipping option, but this greatly depends on the size of your cargo. It’s important to note that this option may result in a longer transit time.
Ideally, we’d appreciate receiving as much notice as possible, with a minimum of 2 weeks during off-peak periods and at least 3 or more weeks during peak season which runs from July to September.
Standard guidelines advise customers against packing valuables like cash, jewellery, passports, watches, mobile phones, laptops, or tablets in their shipment. It’s essential to keep these items in your possession at all times. Additionally, it’s recommended not to include potentially hazardous, destructive, or explosive materials, goods that may attract vermin or other pests, perishable items, animals, birds, fish, reptiles, or plants, as well as items that require special licences or government permissions.
In most cases, vehicles can be shipped overseas with your household goods inside a shipping container. Your vehicle will be securely strapped down to the floor of the container and if additional space is needed for your household effects, a platform will be built over the car. Feel free to reach out to us to discuss the car shipping services that we offer.
