Sometimes when you're moving overseas, you need to have your items with you as quickly as possible. When that's the case, air freight removals are your best option.
From a single suitcase through to the full contents of your household, we've got the expertise to ensure your belongings arrive as quickly as possible at your destination.
Although we can give you an estimate of the cost of sending your goods by air freight, the final accurate price is frequently not known until it has been collected and weighed. This is because airlines charge either on the final volumetric weight or space - whichever is greater. Once your goods have been packed, they'll be forwarded on to the airport for onward consolidation, measurement and weighing.
The next step for your belongings is to ensure compliance with current air freight security measures. They'll either be placed in an X-Ray machine or a decompression chamber prior to being prepared for loading. The decompression chamber is a necessary step, and should cause no wear and tear to your belongings.
Your items will be containierised into an air igloo (see photo above) or loaded and netted onto giant pallets. Your belongings are then forwarded to the airlines or their handling agent.
At this stage, export documents and necessary customs formalities will be completed and a customs examination may need to be carried out. When your goods are sent, we will be given unique air waybill numbers so your goods can be tracked throughout their journey.
We are able to offer service to all major international airports throughout the world, along with many regional airports.
If you have a smaller consignment, you may want to collect the goods yourself from the airport, however, we suggest you allow us to assist with customs clearance.
If you'd like door-to-door service, please let us know. We're happy to arrange the service that best suits your needs.
After each move, we send a survey to ensure our customers are satisfied. Our customers have rated our removal company as follows:
Absolutely fantastic, could not have asked for better! Very caring as I was a wreck! Giovanni and Amrick.
The service provided was excellent, efficient and nothing was too much trouble. The removals crew (Andy J, Andy L, Cookie & Presto) were absolutely brilliant, everything moved and reconstructed quickly and efficiently, and importantly, without a single scratch, scrape or breakage.
You can't [improve the service]. The lads removing were brilliant. I very rarely meet such good service. Billy and the lads were all really helpful, friendly and courteous. The move was delayed and they had to stay late, on a Friday evening and not one of them complained. I couldn't speak highly enough of them.
Out of a number of similar companies I contacted, the person who answered the phone was by far the most warm, polite and helpful. Although it was one of the most reasonably-priced quotes we had, the main reason for choosing Britannia Bradshaw was that from the very first phone call, we had the sense we could trust your company. When it comes to having your possessions shipped overseas, that trust is more important than small differences in price.
We contacted Britainnia Bradshaw several times before being visited for a quote. Each time, staff were kind and helpful, going out of their way to be helpful and reassuring. They were a main reason we chose to go with Brittania Bradshaw. They were fantastic. It took four people working a very long day to get us packed, moved and unpacked. Even in the final hour, they were hard-working, kind to our children and incredibly professional. Great service, a competitive quote and willing to work with our tight timeframe for a move.
The whole day went very well, we were very impressed how the men moved all our belongings so quick and efficiently, with no breakages or damage to our belongings. The move was far better than we thought it would be. No improvements required by us.
Tony and Andy were both extremely helpful. They were very polite and courteous and made the move less stressful for us. They were so organised and very quickly packed all our belongings into the van with such expertise. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
The team arrived early introduced themselves to me individually. Very efficient and took great care in packing my belongings. Very impressed with their hard work and professionalism. Credit to the company in my opinion based on my experience.
Moving home never stress free. But working with Britannia Bradshaw has ensured that the logics packing, storing and moving were a breeze. Everyone I dealt with was not only professional, but took a real interest in understanding my requirements and meeting them. I couldn't be happier. I'll definitely recommend your services and keep your number to hand - though I do hope I'll have a breather before I need to call you again :)
Spoke to Lynne and she was so helpful as I had been in touch with another local firm who were not good in understanding your needs. Lynne knew all the answers to my questions first class thank you Lynne.
My wife and I have not got words to say what a fantastic crew we had they worked so hard and the professional way that they worked was unbelievable. Nothing was any problem to them and they were a pleasure to have been with on this day, they made this move and took all our stress away from us. We would like you to personally thank the three lads which we had the pleasure of meeting they were : Marcin Niedziela, Julian Jackson, Kamil Lesniak. All were 100% 10 out 10
