Global Relocations specialises in overseas removals from the UK to any destination around the globe, regardless of whether you have one item or a complete household to ship by sea, road or air.
We offer a safe and cost effective removal solution tailored to your personal removal requirements. With a global network of accredited agents spanning across all five continents in over 120 countries, you can be sure that we have the right move for you.
An overseas move consists of six parts:
Part 1 – Call our office on 020 8359 1207 to discuss your move in more detail and schedule a convenient home survey. Alternatively, you can click here and complete our FREE HOME SURVEY request form and we will call you back to confirm the appointment.
Part 2 – Pre Move Survey
We send a representative to your home who will go with you, room by room, to view, measure and assess the proposed volume of your household effects. Depending on the size of your property this will take between 45 minutes to an hour and a half.
Part 3 – Formal Quotation
Following our visit, you will receive a written quote within three working days, highlighting the service that will be undertaken by Global Relocations, according to your removal requirements.
Part 4 – Move Day
Every aspect of an overseas move is important; however the day of the move is of particular importance. A lot of care and preparation has been taken into account so that the crew will arrive with all the relevant materials to ensure that your household effects are professionally export packed and wrapped. In addition, they will label each item and create an inventory list, which you will sign and keep a copy of for your records.
It is advisable to purchase coloured stickers to place on the boxes so you know into which room to have them unloaded at destination.
Part 5 – Ocean or Air Freight
If you have enough possessions to warrant a Full Container Load (FCL) as assessed in our pre-move survey, then the container will be positioned outside your residence (assuming normal access) for the crew to securely load, seal and transport directly to the port of exit and shipped to its respective destination.
If you do not have sufficient possessions to fill a container, then your effects will return to our warehouse where they will be loaded in the next available groupage container.
Global Relocations is able to offer an air freight service for any items that require immediate transportation.
Part 6 –Delivery at Destination
The final aspect of your move consists of customs clearance, delivery and unloading items into your new residence. In some countries it is imperative that you present yourself to customs. In other countries you may need to arrange a visit to our appointed agent, so it is important to factor this in when making travel arrangements.
Our global networks of accredited agents operate to the same protocol to ensure that clearance and delivery is seamless. They will make contact and arrange a suitable delivery time to unload and unpack your effects and clear any unwanted rubbish from your new property.
We understand that each move is different and at times you may require some breathing space. Therefore we are pleased to offer secure, cost-effective, containerised storage either in the UK or at any one of our overseas agent’s warehouses.
