Our prices includes
We operate our own network which means we control both where you are shipping from and - more importantly - where you are shipping to (unlike most other companies), we know first-hand the charges that will be incurred by your shipment.
Our price includes boxes, bubble wrap and tape. Our boxes are specially made for us and use a hardening agent to ensure strength and durability. To make it even easier we suggest you order extra boxes in case you need more than you planned. If you find you do not need them all simply hand the empty boxes back when we collect.
If you can pack a TV back into its original packaging and box then this would be acceptable, providing the box is not damaged in any way.
Once collected by our driver, some items will be placed inside boxes for shipping. We have specific boxes designed to take all sorts of items from suitcases and family items (e.g. pushchairs, car seats, sports equipment, bicycles, etc.) to musical instruments (with or without their hard cases).
You can arrange for the delivery of packing boxes and their collection (once packed) online or over the phone. We need a minimum of 36 hours’ notice so please do not leave it to the last minute.
We understand that moving abroad is one of the most stressful things you can do in life so if you need some storage options while you’re working out the logistics of your move, just let us know.
Once you have placed your order with us, we will email you a link which will take you to the login for your online account.
You can monitor and manage your shipment through your online account from start to finish.
It is normal practice for us to split the full charge for international shipping by sea into three stages. If the shipment is sent by air, then it depends on the service: Air Economy has payment in three stages whilst Air Express has payment in two stages.
Our large and standard boxes have packing tips printed on the flaps at the top of each box type.
If your address is outside the range of our depot’s vehicles, all the boxes you need for your shipment will arrive in a large delivery box. Check out our videos for each box type and how they are to be used to pack your possessions. Any boxes that you find you do not need, please return to the Delivery Box and it will be collected at the same time as the rest of your boxes.
Protection against the "what if" moments
