    How It Works

    All belongings destined for the United States are shipped by either sea freight or airfreight, with flexible services available to cater to a variety of needs and budgets. To ensure that your requirements are met, we provide our customers with two options when shipping their belongings to the USA:

    Part Load

    Our part-load service is especially designed for customers who are not shipping an entire household worth of goods and is also the recommended option for those on a tighter budget. Your belongings will be transported to the USA in a shared container. This means that customers using the part-load option will only be charged for the amount of space used. It is important to note that those choosing this service will have to be willing to wait a little longer for their goods to arrive in the USA.

    Full Load

    White & Company recommend using a full-load container if you are shipping a full house load of goods to the USA. When choosing this option, your costs will include the space of the entire container, which means you can fill it however you want. The full-load service provides customers with much more flexibility and will typically arrive faster than the part-load alternative.

    When you select the full-load shipping service, our team in the United Kingdom will load your items into our vehicles and transport them to our export packing depot. Following that, your belongings will be loaded into a container bound for the port of entry closest to your new home in the United States. Keep in mind, this option is more expensive than a part-load move, but the faster shipping and delivery times may be appealing.

    How Long Do Removals to the USA Take?

    The time it takes for your goods to leave the UK and arrive in the United States is largely determined by the shipping method you choose, as well as the specific destination you are moving to in the country.

    Sea freight times from the United Kingdom to the United States are approximately 4-6 weeks for a full-load or 7-10 weeks for our part-load service. It is also important to keep in mind that you will also need to allow extra time for customs clearance. Our crew of professional packers will typically take 2-4 days to pack and load a container, depending on the size of your move. Below is a table displaying the average timeframe expected for goods to leave the UK and arrive in the States.

    USA Removals Man


    White & Company are proud to be founding members of the British Association of Removers, the industry voice for removals in the UK.

    Our membership means we are accountable for upholding the most rigorous industry standards and means that listening to our valued customers is essential for us to continuously improve our services.

    Insurance for Removals to the USA

    When sending a significant shipment of belongings overseas, marine insurance is essential. We suggest that all of our customers insure their belongings while they are either in transit or in storage with our ‘All Risk’ Marine Standard Liability cover.

    Your marine insurance coverage is provided upon receipt of a completed ‘Overseas Valuation Form’. This specific type of insurance is entirely comprehensive and ‘All Risk,’ and will be based on the total amount of items you declare on the application form.

    Preparing for Your Move

    It will come as no surprise that the United States is one of the world’s most popular expat destinations. The sheer size of the country means that expat communities are able to thrive and prosper all across the USA.

    Because of how big the country is, you will find average property prices are very affordable, especially when compared to other wealthy countries, including the UK. It is important to note that this doesn’t apply everywhere in the USA.  Much like in the UK, major cities including New York and Los Angeles have much higher property prices, rental costs and food prices. Thanks to the United States being one of the world’s richest economies, you should expect a very high quality of living. However, the cultural difference between the UK and the USA may take some time to adjust to and you may get some strange looks when eating beans on toast!

    Because the United States lies on the other side of the Atlantic, moving all of your belongings is a significant logistical challenge. We know that moving, especially overseas, can be a difficult experience, but we are here to make the task easier for you. Our highly trained international removals staff have plenty of experience in the process of moving your items from the UK to the USA, so please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. White & Company are here to help!

    Yes, you can import your furniture from the UK to the USA.

    It is important to note that there are several important considerations and regulations you should be aware of.

    It is always important to adhere to any and all customs regulations.

    When importing furniture to the USA, you must ensure you comply with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations. This means that you have to declare all items being imported and may have to pay some import duties.

    Like many countries, the USA has some strict regulations regarding wood and upholstery. Furniture made of certain types of wood or containing specific upholstery materials might be subject to additional scrutiny or restrictions. This means checking that your furniture is eligible to be shipped to the USA.

    Several items cannot be imported into the United States from the UK, either due to safety concerns, environmental reasons, or legal restrictions.

    Here are some of the main prohibited items to look out for.

    Prohibited foods include many fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and dairy products, in order to help prevent the spread of pests and diseases.

    Some items that come from endangered animals and plants such as ivory, fur, and certain wood are prohibited under the Endangered Species Act and CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora).

    There are also strict regulations governing the importation of firearms and ammunition. In order to import these items, customs will require you to provide a permit as proof of ownership.

    For a more comprehensive list be sure to check out the U.S Customs and Border Protection website.
