What Londoners Say About 1st Move International


London to Dubai, UAE

The team is exceptional. I moved from London to the UAE which is quite specific in terms of rules and the team knew from the get go all the specificities and details required. They handled everything from A to Z perfectly. From pick up and packing, to packaging, delivering and unboxing. On time, always following up. Always on top of everything. Had quite a few fragile items and they just did a perfect job. I am super happy i chose them and will do it again and again any time. Highly recommended, experienced, professional. Thank you so much.

London to Alabama, USA

These guys are top notch. We had them move two pallets worth of stuff from a storage container in London all the way to our new house in Alabama. Everything went way too smoothly. Every single item we had was professionally packed and carefully put together into two pallets. Not a single one of our items was damaged or is missing. Pricing was very close to the initial estimate, and their communication was thorough throughout the entire process. Could not be happier or recommend their services with more enthusiasm. Awesome job!!
