Not all moves abroad are the same
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 to 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 and so on. Our 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.
Choosing an international removal company
We understand there's a lot of information to take in when you're moving abroad. Although we hope you'll choose us for your move abroad, we've provided some information about choosing an international removal company, even if you don't select us.
Know Before You Go - Britannia Bradshaw International Removals & Storage is a partner with the Government's Know Before You Go campaign (part of Travel Aware), helping Brits have a safe trip abroad as well as a safe and enjoyable move to a new country. They offer guidance on buying a property abroad, along with guides on living in many countries and a handy checklist for moving abroad.
Specialist trained export packers - 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.
International moves information and advice
We have moved people to all corners of the globe, no place is too far, unusual, or remote! Some of our most popular international removals are to the United States of America, 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 several country guides.
Overseas removals insurance
Despite everyone's best efforts, occasionally things can go wrong with an overseas move. Ships are at the mercy of the seas, and unfortunately we 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.

How are our appointments carried out

Well organised, courteous, friendly and helpful throughout the day
The 4 men (Tony, Ashley, Mike and Ryan) who packed everything up on the 21st were extremely well organised, courteous, friendly and helpful throughout the day. Tony and Ashley then travelled down to Hampshire where they were very helpful and professional when unloading the following day. I can’t fault any of them.
The lady I initially spoke to was very helpful and reassuring that there could be availability if I gave reasonable notice. Also Ernie’s online survey was very helpfully and professionally done.
Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Very helpful both in setting up the date for the survey for f contents and in giving information about availability, lead times, etc.Hilary KimberManchester
By far the most professional and comprehensive
James and the team were all very helpful and friendly, they also did a very thorough job. It was just a very stressful day but the team always did their best to help us. You were friendly and professional throughout the process and gave a good first impression. Quote was also competitive which made the decision even easier.
The video call assessment with Martin was by far the most professional and comprehensive of all the assessments we had with various removal companies.Matt CogleBirmingham
Reliable, arriving when they said they would
The team worked very hard, they were extremely courteous and respectful of the fact that they were working in both my old home and my new one. They were reliable, arriving when they said they would, and just worked non-stop.
It was spot on, thanks to the hard working team.
We used Britannia Bradshaw 28 years ago for our last house move and had been happy with the service then. The quote was acceptable and it made sense to work with a company which had delivered good service in the past.Karene JobManchester
All went very smoothly
Just wanted to say the guys were great yesterday moving my mother’s possessions. All went very smoothly from when we first approached you to the end of the move.Helen DitchfieldBirmingham
