How Much Does it Cost to Move to the USA?

Moving to the USA and trying to figure out just how much it will cost to ship your stuff? Below are very simple guide prices to ship your personal effects and household goods to the USA.

Short Answer: The UK to USA port-to-port transport shipping charge is between roughly, £1,300 and £3,000 depending on your move size and specific destination. For a detailed shipping cost breakdown please check our table below.

Important information about these moving costs

The container prices below should be used as a guide only. There's more. For obvious reasons they do not include UK collection charges from your residence (We don't know where you live) nor do they include onward delivery from the US port to your home in America, (We don't know where you are going to live) and they do not include packing and loading costs. (We don't know how much you've got.)

The moving costs below are for a 3 bed house in a 20ft container or a 4 or 5 bed house in a 40ft container. They are the shipping costs from the UK port of Southampton and London to USA port only. We have not included UK collection or packing costs, customs fees, insurance, or the costs for onward delivery to your US address via the port of arrival. Just as a rough estimate, for a 3 bed house from Oxford to upstate New York you should budget another £1800.00 to £2000.00 for the transport, packing and unpacking costs.
