Packing & Delivery – Our trained packers can pack and wrap all your items to ensure that they are transported safely. If you choose a full door to door service, we will deliver the goods to your new home. Our agents can then unwrap your furniture and unpack your moving boxes onto a flat surface, and all used packing materials will be removed from the site.
Additional removal services – Britannia Bradshaw can provide a variety of additional services when moving to the USA. We can provide comprehensive insurance, can arrange international storage prior to delivery, and can also take care of your pet transport.
Importing Personal Effects to the USA
Household goods and personal effects can usually be imported duty free, provided they have been owned for at least a year before arriving in the USA. Most containers arriving in the United States of America will be subject to examination by US customs. You must ensure you have the appropriate visa for entry into the USA. To import your household goods, we will provide you with the correct customs form, that must be completed prior to the goods leaving the UK.
Prohibitions and Restrictions
In general it is in your interest not to import the following items to the United States of America:
- Firearms & ammunition
- Inflammable goods & substances
- Plants & plant material
- Foodstuffs, perishables or otherwise
- Narcotics and dangerous goods
- Offensive materials

Transit of groupage or shared load consignments usually takes 8 to 11 weeks via the East Coast and 11 to 14 weeks if going via the West Coast. Sole use containers will normally take 2 weeks to the East Coast and 4 weeks to the West Coast. However, transit times will also vary depending on the size of your consignment, customs or immigration delays and weather conditions.

Services from your Birmingham branch is very professional and friendly
which made me a very satisfied experience. I contacted Martin for a quotation in November. He has been very kind and professional to estimate the size of my house and travel to every corner of my house.
Until yesterday, December 16th was a big day for me to move. Spencer's team, including Paul and Fabio, moved very quickly. They arrived at my house at 8:30 in the morning. I had to move as many things as warehouses, cardboard boxes and storage bag. There are at least more than 80 bags, and there are many large electrical appliances and furniture .Their team is very professional.
It took 2 hours to move the whole house supplies to the big truck. They set off from Birmingham and arrived at my new house in Preston at around 2:30 pm. Their perseverance and strength opened my eyes. They are very strong. My new house is a 3-storey house, and they can also move the furniture I use to the 3rd floor.
I am very grateful that they were able to work quickly and make sure that the things I moved were intact despite the low temperature yesterday.
Thanks and regards

We were very successfully moved from Manchester to London last week. The team - Alastair, Mike and David - could not have been bettered. They were extremely polite and helpful at all times and nothing was too much trouble, even when faced with challenging circumstances. They were exceptional and deserve great praise.
Bradshaw International were excellent from beginning to end and we could not recommend them more highly.
Many thanksPattie CarvisManchester
