Humphreys seamless international moves
Humphreys international moves helps families relocate to places as far afield as the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
Having your furniture and personal belongings with you in your new home as quickly as possible, is an important part of settling into your new surroundings, particularly a new country.
Our process starts with a visit to your home to understand the details of your individual move. We survey the furniture and contents of each room then put an initial plan together including shipping options and a provisional schedule.
Humphreys’ International Removal Network
We have a network of trusted and approved agents based all over the world. These are people whom we’ve known for nearly 30 years – trustworthy family-run businesses sharing our values and best practices.
This means you have a dedicated team handling every aspect of your move with care and attention with every aspect overseen by the UK office.
International Moving Expertise
Each country has different customs procedures which we’ll manage on your behalf:
Prohibitions and Restrictions
You’re probably familiar with the ban on firearms and narcotics but there are other restricted items such as plants and food to consider too.
Domestic pets: you’ll need a specialised shipper of animals to coordinate all documentation and necessary veterinary procedures.
Vehicles: cars, motorbikes, vans etc. – we’ll help you ship your vehicles and manage the varying tax and duty that each country applies.
Customers can choose from individual or groupage (shared containers). A ‘standard’ move (e.g. the contents of a 3 bed house) generally fits within a 20 foot container. However, should you need more space (the fitness kit in your garage!) you can share a container (and costs) with other customers instead of paying for 40 foot of extra space. We call this ‘Groupage’.
