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.

We are so pleased we chose your company
I just want to say a massive thank you to Sonic and team for moving us out of our home last week Sunday and Monday.
What amazing guys they were, nothing was too much trouble, they worked so hard and methodically. They are an absolute credit to your company so I just wanted you to know how much we appreciated them. Also before our decision we had 3 different removal companies down to compare and we are so pleased we chose your company.
I’d also like to thank their manager as Sonic and his team tried to get to our house on the Friday when it was ice and snow and the manager was able to rearrange for them to come on the Sunday to make a start which was very much appreciated.
The other person was your sales rep Diane Twigge who was absolutely excellent and extremely helpful, right on her game. Thank you again for all your wonderful staff that we had dealings with.Janet HallManchester
