About 1st Move International

If you’re moving overseas from Milton Keynes, make 1st Move International your 1st choice for professional COVID-safe packing and removals.

Founded over 24 years ago, our team have helped ship countless individuals’ belongings from the UK, all of whom have benefited from our exceptionally high standard of packing that you simply won’t find anywhere else.

COVID-Safe, Zero-Touch Removals

What makes our packing so special? Here’s a quick rundown of how it works:

  • First, all goods and furniture are individually packed and carefully arranged together on one or more shipping pallets (depending on the size of your move).
  • Your pallets are then further wrapped in layers of high strength cardboard and export standard bubble wrap, ensuring that all of your items stay tightly together and protected.
  • We then encase the shipment in our signature Shrink-wrap film which is heat treated to provide the perfect seal from the outside world.

These three simple steps ensure the best protection for your goods during your move, from departure to delivery - and it’s how we’ve been doing things for over 20 years.

These procedures help drastically reduce handling of individual items and ensure that items are never shipped loosely. This means no mix-ups, fewer accidents and drastically reduced insurance claims for our customers.

Guaranteed Weekly Shipping

Thanks to our palletised packing, we’re allowed to ship alongside commercial products. This means no waiting around for a container to be full and guaranteed weekly departures.

Shipping Insurance

All moves are covered under marine insurance, provided by insurance giants Royal Sun Alliance. We enjoy the lowest claims record of any overseas removals company due to our unmatched packing.

Associations and Accreditations

We are long-standing members of both the British International Freight Association (BIFA) and the British Association of Removers (BAR). These associations ensure that all members are reputable, professional and safe, giving customers peace of mind.
