International removals from Birmingham, Coventry, and Manchester

International removal specialists

Because we know that moving to another country or another continent can be a stressful experience, Britannia Bradshaw International Removals & Storage goes the extra mile to ensure your arrival is smooth and trouble-free.

From information and advice before you pack a thing, to our partnership with the Government's Know Before you Go campaign, we help you have a successful move - regardless of where in the world you're moving.

We take the time to understand your move and your concerns, and do everything we can to ensure your move is as smooth as possible.

Some of our most popular destinations are Australia, United States of America, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates - but we can move you anywhere in the world that you're going!

Let our experience and expertise help you have a hassle-free international relocation.

European Removals

Removals to Europe

European removal experts

While there is currently free movement of European Union (EU) and European Free Trade Agreement (EFTA) nationals in the EU, Switzerland and Norway, there's more involved with moving in Europe than just packing your bags and arriving.

Brexit may impact your removal to or from Europe

We understand the European market like few other removal companies, and have been safely moving household and personal effects for thousands of customers to every destination in Europe including Switzerland, The Netherlands, France, Germany, and Ireland for generations.

Moving to the UK from Europe? Not a problem, we can handle your removal from Europe to the UK!

Storage for Overseas Moves

Storage for international moves

Storage for international removals

Sometimes with an overseas removal you need to store your belongings before they're loaded onto the ship or at your destination.

Britannia Bradshaw International Removals & Storage can store your belongings in our modern, secure warehouse until you've located housing and are ready to receive your belongings in your new country.

For short term moves abroad, it often makes more sense to store the majority of your belongings in the UK for safekeeping until you return, particularly if you plan on renting out your home.

Overseas Shipping

International removals by sea shipping containers

International removals shipping

After "how much will it cost?", probably the two most common questions we receive about overseas moves are:

How big are the shipping containers?

When will my items arrive?

We have some general information about shipping containers - sizes, estimated shipping times for various common destinations and more

Air Freight Shipping

International removals by air

International removals by air

When you're moving overseas, you also have the option to have your items sent by air freight

Our longstanding relationships with the world's leading air transport companies allow Britannia Bradshaw to arrange air freight for your items in an efficient and professional manner

Although smaller packages can be sent individually, we usually need to overcase (placing all your packed cartons into a large, strengthened cardboard box) before they can be airlifted

Secure Document Shredding

Shredding for international removals

Safe & simple document destruction

Before you make an international move, it is best to sort through your paperwork and decide what you don't need to bring with you. There's no sense in moving paperwork that you don't need, especially when you're travelling to another country.

Britannia Bradshaw offers a Move & Shred service - bag or box up your papers to be shredded and we'll collect them for you on moving day. It couldn't be simpler - and your first bag or box of shredding is free (details here)!

Currency & Pension Transfers

Currency exchange and pension transfers for international moves

Currency & Pension Transfers

When you're moving to a new country, it is easy to concentrate on the logistics of your move and not give much thought to transferring your pension or exchanging your money. However, this can end up costing you far more than you realise.

Did you know that you may be able to pay for the cost of your international removal by utilising a currency transfer service? The savings you make in the currency exchange rates over bank currency exchange rates is often that substantial, and many of our customers have paid for their international moves with these savings.

It is easy to do, but you can't overlook or neglect your pension once you've emigrated from the UK. Withdrawls that fall outside the rules of your new country and HMRC can trigger penalties and taxes, so it is always best to obtain professional advice before you transfer your pension.

Once you have emigrated, it is usually too late to benefit from a pension transfer. Find out more and obtain the right advice for you before your move.

International Moving Advice

Advice and information for international moves

International moving advice

For advice on moving to a new country, moving overseas with pets, children, and country information, please consult our Moving Advice section.

There's also information available on choosing an international removal company and life as an expat, which you may find useful

We offer some information on visas for Australia, New Zealand, the United States of America, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates / Dubai

We also have some advice for getting settled in your new home in the United Arab Emirates/Dubai, New Zealand, the United States of America, Australia and South Africa.

We're partners for the Government's Know Before you Go campaign, helping to ensure you have the information you need before you move abroad.
