About our shipping service

We've been helping people get to the UK and make the most of life there since 1995.

When we started, many of our clients arrived in the UK on a two-year working holiday visa, and after their adventures, many had to head home with a large amount of excess baggage. To help travellers avoid exorbitant excess baggage fees, we started our shipping service. Our service has grown over the years and now incorporates larger international moves. We make the process as smooth, safe and stress-free as possible.


Why choose us to ship your goods?

Free delivery and collection within London's M25 area

If you’re located in London's M25 orbital motorway, we provide free packing cartons, as well as free collection. Our London delivery and collection service operates next day, Monday to Saturday.

Nationwide service

Located outside of London? We can still help. We can deliver packing cartons and collect your excess baggage from all over the United Kingdom. If you’re based in Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow, you can get a free next day delivery and collection service. If you’re located elsewhere in the UK, we offer a courier service for a small fee.

Free cartons and packing materials

We take the hassle out of packing your belongings. Besides shipping cartons, we can also supply other packing materials, including packaging tape, bubble wrap and tissue paper – all at no charge. Not sure which boxes you need? Our experienced team is on hand with expert advice.

If you'd prefer not to pack your own cartons, we offer a professional packing service. We’ll make sure that your goods are packed securely, so you’re guaranteed that they reach their destination in one piece.

We are a certified BAR overseas bonded member. You can rest assured that your goods will be delivered to their destination, even in the unlikely event that we stop trading.

Trusted, reliable, safe and secure

We have over 25 years’ experience and have safely delivered over half a million consignments. Our certification with the BAR and accreditation from FIDI/FAIM – the respected global international removals trade body – means that your goods will get where they need to be.
