People moving abroad frequently have different requirements for storage of their belongings. You may find that you need to store your belongings before they're transported, and many people find they don't want to move everything - particularly if they're not going to be abroad for more than a couple of years.
There are many reasons you might need to store your belongings before they're shipped. These include needing to vacate your current home before you're scheduled to leave, changes in your schedule to move abroad, or you're not going straight to your destination and want to delay shipment for a few weeks or months. We can keep your belongings safely stored in our warehouse, export wrapped and ready to go for your shipping date.
Many people who know they'll only be abroad for a year or two decide not to ship all of their belongings to their new home overseas. Storage in our secure warehouses is the perfect solution if you don't want to move everything to your new home abroad. Your items will be ready and waiting for you when you get home, and can be delivered to you at a time and location of your choosing. If you change your mind and decide to stay longer in your home abroad, we can easily pack and wrap your belongings and arrange for shipping - you don't need to come back to the UK to arrange this.
For many people, it makes sense for them to rent their UK home out while living abroad. If you don't want to leave your furniture, cookware, etc. that you aren't shipping to be used by your tenants, the best solution to avoid breakage, wear and tear and loss of your items is to place them in storage until your return.

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
