Whilst moving abroad can be stressful, Britannia Harrison and Rowley aim to provide expertise service that will ease the journey. We will handle everything from packing, import documents and delivery to custom clearance. We specialise in packing effects so that they are safe and secure for transit as well as providing detailed plans of your removal so that you know exactly what is happening and when.
INDIVIDUAL AND GROUPAGE CONTAINER SHIPMENTS
If you have a full container, which most removals do, your articles will be loaded outside your house and taken directly to the port for shipment. Alternatively, if your move is not big enough to fill an entire container, your effects will be bought back to our depot and placed into a consolidation warehouse, where they will be stored securely until being loaded along side other loads, ready for groupage shipment.
You will be advised of all these options during your survey and advised of the volume of your effects.
Full containers can take up to 8 weeks to reach your destination and groupage shipments can take up to 12 – 14.
PACKING SERVICE AND BAR CODING
Being the most important aspect of your overseas shipping, we only employ the highest trained removers to pack and wrap your small effects. This way we can ensure they are safe for transportation and will reach you on the other side in exactly the same condition they were packed in.
Large items such as furniture are either export wrapped or crated (using our bespoke crating service) accordingly.
Once your items have been safely wrapped, they will be barcoded so that we can ensure everything reaches you, and nothing is left at the departure address.
