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.

- Firearms & ammunition

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.

They even put our couch back together so our young kids had somewhere to sit
Ryan, Mike and the lads were fantastic. On the first day, three crew turned up and packed up the ground floor and a room upstairs in 2 hours. Due to the solicitors slowing down the completion, the lads had to hang on a bit longer but as the day was getting later two more guys joined the team giving us 6 people to unload the van and put it in to the correct rooms within the hour, they even put our couch back together so our young kids had somewhere to sit.
Couldn’t have done it without them though so I’m glad they had managed it so well on the day.
Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Ernie Humphries was straight to the point and extremely helpful in helping us to decide whether to pay for the packing service. Due to stamp duty ending, June had become a very intense and busy month so Ernie and Keeley were quick to help accommodate our needs. We couldn’t get two days together so they were able to pack on one day and load the van two days later.Rob DewhirstManchester
Moving is said to be traumatic but we felt we were in safe hands
What a gold star team! Paul, Pat, Dan and Ade worked like Trojans for days on end to make it all happen. Moving is said to be traumatic but we felt we were in safe hands. The level of expertise was amazing, and coupled with a helpful attitude and cheerful approach they made the whole experience much more enjoyable than I expected. I thoroughly recommend all of them!
I don't think you could have done anything better!
Reasonable prices and knowledgeable staff.
Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Friendly and efficient. Also very reassuring and patient with my numerous questions.Lucy SchlappaBirmingham
