International removals by air

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.

Pricing estimates

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.

Loading on to the aircraft

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.

Your destination

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.
