Moving to a new country overseas is both exciting and a bit nervewracking. Our experts an help you navigate the sometimes complicated path to moving your life abroad with relative ease. From helping you plan out a schedule to ensuring that all of your items are packed and ready to go and clear customs, our team will help your move abroad be as stress-free as possible.
Whether you're moving to Europe or further afield, we can help with your move.
We know that every person moving abroad has different requirements and reasons for their move. Whether your company is relocating you, or you are moving for a new job and experience abroad, or you've met the love of your life and are moving a new country to build your life together, or you simply want a change of scenery - we've got you covered. Each of our international moves is bespoke, meaning that you're not paying for something you don't need and your requirements are our top priority.
Every country has their quirks about what can be imported, customs charges, etc. Our international move experts know the rules and will be able to advise you on what you can't move, or how to prepare certain items for moving to help you avoid issues when it comes time for customs clearance in your new country.
Our removal men are trained in the art of export wrapping and packing your belongings, helping to ensure their safe journey to your new home abroad. Unlike others, our men perform this task on a regular basis, and their experience, knowledge and expertise helps your belongings be packed for export quickly and safely.
Despite everyone's best efforts, occasionally things can go wrong with an overseas move. Ships are at the mercy of the seas, and we (unfortunately!) can't predict Mother Nature. Because of this, we suggest you have international removal insurance. Britannia Movers International PLC offers International Marine Transit Insurance for Household Goods and Personal Effects. There are several levels of cover to suit your items and your budget, and our international move consultant will explain the options available to you so that you can make the right choice for your international relocation.
We have moved people to all corners of the globe, no place is too far or remote! Some of our most common overseas moves are to the USA, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the UAE, but we have the experience, knowledge and expertise to move you anywhere you are going. We also offer information and advice on how to prepare for your move abroad, obtaining a visa, and how to successfully move abroad with your pets or your children along with some country guides.

My family and I have used Britannia several times and have always received a good service. Very flexible, given my lack of availability for an assessment and the short time-frame. [Removal men were] Mike Preston and Chris Heyworth - really friendly and helpful
The move day experience far exceeded our expectations. Considering moving house is meant to be one of the most stressful things you can do, we were relaxed for the whole two days with plenty of time to make a cuppa! We had every confidence in the removals crew. Jay and his team were professional, helpful and kept us organised without being obtrusive. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
Amazing service from Britannia Bradshaw I'll definitely recommend you to friends and family. Thank you for making what can be a very stressful day go so smoothly. For me everything was great can't think of anything to improve. Ben and James were very friendly, polite and helpful - amazing service
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.
