Well… the best way to ship your goods to the USA is with Anglo Pacific!

We provide a door-to-door international shipping service which is the perfect shipping solution to get your goods from the UK to the USA. We can pack your belongings up for you and collect them for their onward transit, so you can sit back and relax.

We offer two shipping options that you can choose from when sending your things to the USA. Both methods are beneficial for different customer requirements:

Sea Freight

If you are looking for a more cost-effective shipping service to USA, sea freight is your go-to option! Sea freight’s economic costs make it the most popular method of transport among our customers. Your items are arranged onto a shared or sole-use shipping container, which is loaded onto our cargo ship to USA for delivery.

Sea freight is the slowest of our transport methods and you can expect your items to arrive within weeks for the UK to USA shipping. For example, the average delivery time for air freight is 7 to 10 days, in contrast to the estimated 6 to 8 weeks for sea freight, but this is reflected in the low cost of shipping to USA. Please note that the transit time for your shipment also depends on the nature of the sea freight world and port congestions. Be sure to talk with your international shipping coordinator to discuss the current shipping climate. 

Air Freight

Air freight to USA is the most expensive option out of our transport methods; however, it is the quickest and sometimes the most convenient way to send goods to USA. We will pack your possessions onto a commercial air carrier ready for take-off to your chosen airport in USA.

Air freight is the best transportation to USA method if you need your items sending in a hurry as your consignment could reach you in a matter of days. This timeliness does come with a much higher price tag than shipping to USA using sea freight. Please note that the transit time for your shipment also depends on the nature of the air freight world and port congestions. Be sure to talk with your international shipping coordinator to discuss the current shipping climate. 

If you are looking to ship your items to the USA on a tight budget, then you will be interested in our Groupage service. Groupage is an option for customers transporting their goods via sea freight and this is where you share a container with other Anglo Pacific customers who are also shipping their goods to the USA. When shipping your goods via Groupage, you will only pay for the space in the container than you take up and this way, it saves everyone money!

As one of the UK’s leading international shipping companies, this gives us an advantage in securing the very best shipping rates for our customers and this is how we manage to operate on a cost-effective basis.

This is probably one of our most asked questions when dealing with customers shipping their goods to the USA, and unfortunately the answer isn’t as simple as you probably want it to be. There are a number of things that contribute to the time frame of your shipment, such as the transit method you choose and the nature of the shipping industry at the time.

For example, if you choose to ship your goods to the USA via air freight then your goods may arrive at destination within 7-10 days of departure in the UK, whereas sea freight may take between 6-8 weeks. Please note that these are estimates for arrival to your destination port and delivery times will vary depending on where in the USA you are moving to and the distance from the nearest port/airport.

Please be aware that any transit time we give you is just an estimate and the nature of the shipping industry may effect this.

Shipping parcels, suitcases and household goods to USA is already a stressful process and we don’t want to aggravate this by sneaking in any extra costs.

As an advanced international shipping company to USA, we have our customer’s best interests at heart, which is why we include all of the costs in our transparent and detailed quotes, ensuring you know exactly how much you are paying, what you are paying for, and the service you should receive when you choose Anglo to ship to USA:

Your international shipping coordinator will arrange a date with you so we can pick up your packed belongings and then we will send your boxes on their way to the USA. For large furniture items, our professional team of packers will need to export wrap these to ensure they are secure enough to be handled at the port, without causing any damage.

Please note that all items should be packed with plenty of protection and the boxes need to be secured with packing tape. If you need any advice on packing yourself, feel free to contact your international shipping coordinator.
