Faster Weekly Shipping

One of the biggest pain points of an international removal is the delay in shipping times. With current worldwide travel restrictions in place - and an unprecedented drop in emigration - it’s not uncommon for delays of 4-6 months to be experienced during an international removal.

This is due to the fact that most shipping companies are required to wait for their containers to be filled by multiple shipments before being transported to Brazil.

As commercial freight services are not impacted by the current travel restrictions, 1st Move International are proud to offer delay-free weekly shipping by sharing container space with commercial movers, serving Brazil as well as the rest of our worldwide destinations.

Safe & Secure Packing

Our signature shrink-fast packaging process serves as the safest way of packaging your personal effects - both from a damage prevention perspective and a health & safety perspective.


Your items will first be packed into boxes or crates, with bulkier items being bubble wrapped to provide additional protection. Once all boxes & crates have been packed, your pallet will be encased in a transparent stretch-wrap film as well as a double-walled cardboard sheet, aiming to minimise movement during travel.

The shipment is then encased in a 125-micron sheet of shrink-wrap, designed to ensure a tight fit to protect your personal effects from the outside world. Polypropylene strapping is then used to secure the shipment to the pallet and joined with a metal seal.

Your shipment is then labelled with a 1st Move International tracking code, allowing us to track the security of your shipment during the move. Lastly, we measure your pallet to the nearest centimetre to ensure your price can be precisely calculated, with no nasty surprises when it comes to your final bill.
