Accreditations and certifications are a good way to determine the professionalism and credibility of a company. With a little money and a web expert any moving company can get a good position in your search engine listings, but how do you know they are reputable?
Organisations like FIDI (who certify international removal companies to the FAIM standard) and the BAR (British Association of Removers) pre-vet moving companies for you, and only let those who meet their standards become a member and display the badge. BAR companies also offer an advance payment guarantee so if anything happens to the removal company whilst your move is in progress you are financially protected. So, if you want to be sure you’ve chosen a reputable Removal Company, look for the badges. Find out more about International Shipping company accreditations here.
Every move is different so when we’ve talked through your personal move situation and requirements, we will suggest our recommended services and move plan. Typically, this includes:
If something we suggest doesn’t quite work the way you’d like it to or if you want to explore alternative solutions that’s no problem, just let us know and we’ll be happy to customise the plan so that you’re most comfortable. Our services are completely flexible, it’s your move and we’re here to make it as easy as possible for you.
For larger overseas shipping moves we usually like to arrange a Move Consultation (sometimes known as a ‘survey’). This allows us to talk through your personal requirements further, explain your options and how your move might work, highlight anything you might find useful to know (like what you can and can’t take to specific countries based on their customs regulations) and to assess the technical aspects like the volume of items you’d like to move, the access to your property, any special packing or handling requirements that might be involved. We will send your quote over as soon as possible afterwards.
Typically we will visit you at home for the move consultation, but if you don’t have time, need an out of hours appointment or would just prefer us not to visit we can offer a range of other options like a Live Video Survey (available 24/7) using your smartphone, a telephone survey or our online self survey form.
Yes. Sharing a container is a great way to reduce the cost of international removals if you have more than a few boxes don't have enough volume to fill a container.
