Meeting your individual requirements:

By Sea

Shipment by sea is the most cost effective method and suitable for bulky items.

Usually a 20’ or 40’ shipping container would be used. The container would be packed, loaded and sealed at your home and taken straight to the docks ready for shipping. We will organise customs clearance and delivery to your new home with one of our experienced agents who will unload, unwrap and position your effects. They will also unpack the cartons for you and take away all packaging and materials.

People often use a combination of deep sea transportation for items such as furniture, cars and the bulk of personal effects and then airfreight for essential items.

By Air

If speed is the priority then airfreight is the best choice. This is the service for items you simply can’t do without on arrival, such as selected clothes and favourite children’s toys to help settle in quickly.


For smaller consignments a groupage delivery can be arranged. This would still mean utilizing a shipping container but the container would be made up of 2 or 3 small consignments and can be more cost effective. Flexibility regarding delivery dates would be required.

European Removals

We are experienced in moving you to all European destinations, either as a dedicated delivery or as a groupage consignment if you have flexibility on delivery dates.
