Moving abroad shouldn’t mean sacrificing all of your beloved possessions. As one of the most advanced international shipping companies in the UK, our services allow you to send a suitcase to Spain or a home load of furniture to New Zealand; whatever your heart desires.
Every country has its own list of prohibited and restricted items that you won’t be able to send, but aside from that, if your end destination allows it – we ship it!
Items we commonly deliver as part of our international shipping from the UK are:
- Extra clothes, shoes and accessories
- Toiletries, make-up and jewellery
- Beds, wardrobes and dressing tables
- Sofas, television units and office furniture
- Computers and server systems
- Surfboards, golf clubs, skis and other sports equipment
- Musical instruments, weights and work tools
- Bicycles, motorbikes and cars
Your move coordinator will provide you with an exhaustive list of items that you can ship and answer your queries if you need confirmation for any specific items.
Some shipping and removals companies offer a one-size-fits-all package for their own convenience whereas a reliable international shipping company will provide a tailored experience for every individual customer; this is the policy we employ at Anglo Pacific.
We use three shipping methods; road freight, sea freight and air freight. Each customer will find a different one, or a combination thereof, more suited to their cargo.
Shipping internationally via sea freight is the most popular transit method because it is the cheapest of our international shipping services.
Your items are packed within a shared or sole-use shipping container that is then loaded onto one of our freight vessels for overseas delivery. Sending goods abroad using sea freight will often take a number of weeks, especially to further afield destinations such as Singapore, Thailand or Australia. For example, the average delivery period for air freight consignments is 7 to 10 days, compared to sea freight deliveries that often arrive within 6 to 8 weeks.
Air freight has the most expensive international shipping rates, but sending items via air is highly beneficial if you are in a hurry. Your goods are packed and loaded onto a commercial aircraft ready for take-off to your chosen destination. Air freight is the best international shipping method if you need a quick turnaround as your goods will reach you in a matter of days, rather than weeks.
Road freight is a fine choice if you are looking for cheap international shipping to the UK and European destinations. However, road freight is commonly used in conjunction with sea freight to speed up delivery times whilst keeping the cost of international shipping as economical as possible.
Our international shipping services from the UK can be tweaked to suit your budget and time-frame, but there are three dominant factors that will influence your international shipping costs – load size, transportation method and end destination.
If you are looking for cheap international shipping, sea freight is the best choice. When sending items abroad using sea freight, the cost is largely calculated based on the volume of your cargo.
In your online home survey, we assess your load and advise whether you should use the LCL or FCL sea freight method. If you choose Less Container Load, your goods are loaded onto a shipping container that is shared with other Anglo Pacific customers and you will only be charged based on the cubic volume that your items take up within the container. If it is more useful to use Full Container Load, you will be assigned a 20ft or 40ft shipping container and charged one set rate to fill this container how you wish; this is most beneficial for very large loads and vehicle shipping.
Air freight will set you back considerably more than sea freight because the bulk of your cost is calculated based on the weight of your items. Air freight is advised if you have a small number of items that you need urgently.
Another contributing factor to your international shipping quote is the distance that your goods are travelling. For example, a sea freight shipment to France is considerably cheaper than the same load being shipped to Australia.
Shipping international suitcases, parcels and home goods is already a stressful process for many and we don't want to aggravate this further by sneaking in additional costs along the way.
We are an organisation of international shippers with the customers at heart, so to avoid unnecessary frustration we provide a transparent quote from the outset and include all of the added extras so you know precisely what you are paying for and the exact service you will receive:
