International Moves

Moving overseas­ – our process


Britannia Cestrian will provide professional help and guidance to all clients wishing to move abroad, including a comprehensive ​pre­move survey.


During the pre­move survey, we will advise whether your effects will be shipped in their own shipping container or as part of a shared load consignment.


Most international shipments are loaded into steel shipping containers. Sole use containers will normally be packed outside your home, sealed and transported directly to the docks for international shipment. Alternatively, if your move is not big enough to fill an international shipping container, we will transfer them to our consolidation warehouse where they will be stored safely, until being loaded jointly with other loads travelling to the same destination.


Should you wish to move your car along with your household effects, we are able to offer a professional, safe method of international car shipping.


Items required urgently at the destination can be sent by air. We will pack these into airline approved cartons or cases. For smaller consignments to remote destinations, your effects can be case packed for shared loading.


We will create a detailed tailor­made move plan, including exactly what you want moving and specifying whether our international movers and packers need special equipment or materials to move any large or unusual items. We will make sure that every single item that you require is included in the plan.


All small items are wrapped in paper or tissue then carefully placed in strong reinforced international shipping boxes. All furniture and larger items are wrapped in multilayer export grade wrappers, and card can also be used for extra protection.
