An international move is an exciting and life changing event. However, no matter how exciting it can be, it can also be stressful and you need to plan much in advance. At Britannia Bradshaw International Removals & Storage Manchester, we're experts in overseas removals, and do everything we can to help ensure your overseas move is as stress-free as possible.
Whether you're moving to Europe, Australia, New Zealand, America, South Africa, China or anywhere in between, we have the experience, knowledge and partnerships to allow you to focus on getting settled in your new country, rather than worrying about your belongings.
Providing quality moves while at the same time making sure our customers receive excellent service they deserve is our main goal. To help us achieve this goal, Britannia Bradshaw International Removals & Storage is a member of the British Association of Removers (BAR) and has achieved ISO certification.
Because of our strong customer-focussed outlook, we are also partners in the Government's Know Before You Go campaign for Brits moving and travelling overseas.
Depending on your final destination, we can offer you several options for your international removal.
Most European removals are performed by road, and most international moves are done by a combination of road and container shipping. However, if you need your items quickly, air freight is an option and generally takes 10 - 14 days to arrive, depending on your final destination.
Regardless of which service you require, our overseas removal experts can arrange it for you.You're 2 minutes away from booking your removal estimate appointment - click here to get started!
It is always a good idea to prepare for the unexpected with your overseas move due to shipping and distances covered. We offer a variety of insurance packages to suit your international removal requirements. We're fully regulated by the Financial Services Authority (FSA), so you can rely on Britannia insurance products to meet the standards set out by the FSA.
Of course, we do everything we can to avoid a situation where you'd need to claim, including using the latest packing and loading techniques. However, with international and European moves and the long distances these moves involve, damage can occasionally occur. Whether you choose our removal insurance or arrange your own, we strongly suggest you have insurance in place for your international removal - particularly if you are shipping your goods in a deep sea container.
Please ask about your insurance options when you speak with our representative.
We know you have choices when it comes to picking a removal company. At Britannia Bradshaw, over 98% of our customers love us, and we'd be happy to count you among them.
If you're moving from Manchester to anywhere in Europe or the world, we'd love to help you with your removal. Contact us or ring 0161 877 5555 for more information on how we can help your international move go smoothly.

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.
