Removals By sea

Moving to another country and changing habits can be a daunting experience. And if you add all the stress related to the removal of your house with all your belongings and furniture, then it can be really challenging! If you're not an expert, it's not easy to take care of all the aspects related to an international removals: the packing, the type of transport, customs bureaucracy and the delivery to the country of destination.

REMOVALS IN CONTAINERS OR LIFTVANS (CONSOLIDATED CONTAINERS)

Removals in containers imply the use of a container which is dedicated to a single client. Depending on the volume, suitably packed belongings and household goods are loaded on 20', 40' or 40' high-cube containers.
Removals in liftvans (LCL - Less than Container Load) are used for small moves that don't need to rent an entire and dedicated container. The goods are packed and placed in ISPM15 certified wooden crates that are consolidated with other shipments inside a shared container.
Every item must be packed and stowed properly, in order to resist to eventual impacts that may be caused by rough sea or handling operations at the port. Our professional packing material is more resistant than the normal one, it can withstand greater loads when stowed and stacked.
