We have been moving customers to the USA for over 30 years therefore we know exactly what services you require to make your move as hassle-free as possible. We also provide a range of shipping options and a dedicated team of staff to attend to all your queries and requirements. We know how stressful moving abroad can be and that is why we have designed a simple seven step guide for your removal.
What are the best shipping methods to the USA?
Household goods are normally transferred by shipping vessels. At Moving Home Company we ship your goods in 20ft or 40ft metal containers. We offer a full container load (FCL) service where your shipment is the only cargo in the container. This service means there is less handling of your personal items once loaded and they are taken to the port of departure where your goods can take from 9-30 days to be shipped depending on the destination.
For a more budget-friendly shipping option we offer a less container load (LCL) service where your shipment will be combined with other smaller shipments in order to make up a full container. Due to the consolidation period of the other consignments, this service has longer transit times in comparison to the FCL service.
If you have a few items or require important personal possessions to be available as soon as you arrive in the USA, then airfreight is a better means of transporting your goods. This air service offers speedy transits, reliable departure and arrival times and less hassle in the move process. If you would like an instant airfreight quote, please click here.
It is important that you are fully aware of the customs regulations in order for your goods to be cleared. For more information on regulations and for access to forms please click here: http://relogenius.com.
During the course of your move you may require storage of your items either in the U.K or your international destination. Our network of overseas partners means that we can arrange for your goods to be securely placed into a storage facility until you need them. Alternatively we can store them in our warehouse until you are ready to ship them abroad. Speak to your move consultant who can arrange this for you.
