Tailoring your international move to your requirements

If you are moving overseas from the UK, maybe for work or even pleasure then you may want to consider hiring a professional international removals company to help you plan your move as well as arranging collection, shipping and delivery of your household goods and your motor vehicle (if applicable).

You may be considering selling some of your household goods and buying new in your new home however arranging this can be very time consuming, you may be surprised to find out that you can ship your household goods such as a washing machine, firdgefreezer and other white goods at a low rate. With household goods the shipping is not charged on the weight, it is simply charged on the overall cube of your collective goods. This means that you will only have to pay for the exact space that your goods take up inside a shipping container.

Professional shipping, tailor to you

First Base Freight offer a professional and reliable services, each overseas move is tailored to your exact requirements, for example if you want to ship a few personal effects then our highly experienced removal team can come to your property at a time and date convenient to you and carefully pack and wrap your goods to then transport them back to our warehouse. Once your goods are in our warehouse, they are professionally palletised and wrapped with heat treated shrink wrap to utilise as much space on the pallet as possible to save you money on the cost of your shipping.

If you are looking to ship the majority of your household goods and personal effects then we can arrange a 20FT or 40FT shipping container to be located outside of your property. Our removal team can then meet you at the property to load the container or if you would like you could choose to load the container yourself, it is worth keeping in mind however that you will only have 3 hours of free loading time to load the container and additional charges will apply after these 3 hours. Also the container will be located on the back of a truck and will be at least 5 foot off the floor, to have the container dropped to the floor will incur an additional fee.
