Simply the best! Highly recommend 1st Move International, outstanding service. I had a large shipment of all my worldly goods to SA of which many items were very fragile. The packaging was so amazing not a single item was broken. And the communication was excellent all the way. Thank you to all at the company.

We have used 1st Move International over the past five years and never had a concern. The service we have received has encouraged us to give 1st Move International's details to all our friends

From start to finish the process to move our goods from the UK to the USA was seamless. Wonderful communication from everyone involved, and our belongings arrived in flawless condition. Highly recommend!

Even with the inconveniences of COVID-19 shutting down the world, 1st Move International went above and beyond for our overseas move.

I would give more stars if I could! 1st Move shipped 4 large pallets from the UK to the US for me and what seemed like such a daunting task to me, they handled awesomely!

Absolutely fantastic service from start to finish. Highly recommend and would definitely use again. Super helpful friendly team with brilliant communication who helped us every step of the way guiding us through all paperwork rules and regs. Thanks so much.

Even with the inconveniences of COVID-19 shutting down the world, 1st Move International went above and beyond for our overseas move. It is amazing that there was no damage taking into consideration that there was an Atlantic crossing, countless warehouse moves, train shipments, and truck deliveries.
