During the pre-move survey we will advise whether your effects will be shipped in their own container or as part of a shared load consignment.
Most 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 shipment. Alternatively, if your move is not big enough to fill a 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, Britannia are able to offer this in either your own sole – use container or as part of a shared consignment.
Items required urgently at the destination can be sent by air. Britannia 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 tailor-made move plan, including exactly what you want moving and whether the packing team need any special equipment or materials to move 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 / tissue then carefully placed in strong re-inforced cartons. All furniture and larger items are wrapped in multi-layer export grade wrappers. Card can be used for extra protection.
High value or unusual items can be further protected by custom casing by our resident cabinet maker.
Once packed all items are labelled with name, destination and inventory number.
