We pride ourselves in our packing, and for good reason. Rather than shipping items lose like most movers, we'll carefully pack and wrap your household goods onto shipping pallets, ensuring that we make the best use of space to minimise the total volume.
We then wrap the entire pallet with clear stretch-wrap film to secure all items tightly together and reduce movement during transit. Extra layers of cardboard sheet and export standard bubble wrap are then added to further increase the protection for your move.
Lastly, we encase the whole shipment in our recognisable black shrink-wrap film which is heat treated for a tight fit. This provides an exceptionally secure seal from the outside world, helping to guarantee that your personal belongings are protected and untouched upon arrival at your door.
Not only is this one of the safest ways of shipping household goods overseas, it also provides the perfect protection against the Coronavirus as it prevents handling of individual items and ensures that your goods arrive untouched since leaving the UK. The ideal COVID-Safe method of moving abroad. No other removals company does this!

Guaranteed Weekly Shipping
Thanks to our packing, we're able to ship alongside commercial goods so we never have to wait around for a container to be full (as is the case with some removals companies). This means we can guarantee weekly shipping from the UK to over 144 countries worldwide.
We are trusted members of BIFA (the British International Freight Association) and BAR (the British Association of Removers) and we have been safely moving household goods overseas for over 20 years.
We offer comprehensive shipping insurance for your move. Due to our packing methods, we enjoy the lowest claims record of any moving company in the UK. Reduced handling means less risk and our shrink-wrap palletised packing means greater overall protection for your belongings.

Real customer reviews
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.
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!
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. The only moving company I recommend!
