Highly professional operation. Quote, honesty, quality of people, delivery estimate - everything from initial contact to final delivery was top notch with no surprises. I was very pleased with how 1st move handled my international relocation from UK to USA. Highly recommended by me and will be my go to for any future relocation needs.
12/11/2023 - Canada
Beautifully packed!! Amazing work!
08/11/2023 - 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.

Outstanding service! Shipping my personal effects overseas could not have been made easier in any way
28/10/2023 - USA
1st Move International is a very professional company. They did exactly what they said they would do. My shipment was well packed and arrived at the destination exactly on time. I would recommend them to anyone wishing to ship personal effects across the globe
26/10/2023 - USA
UK to US with flying colors! I shipped furniture and personal items from my parent’s house in Sheffield UK to Connecticut USA after they passed away so more sentimental than anything else. Included rocking chair, dresser, chest, glassware, old records etc. Have to say I am thrilled with the outcome. I put 100% trust in them and they came through with flying colors. From day 1 getting a quote to receiving everything in one piece. I never met anyone, not even when they picked up in Sheffield, but I felt comfortable with them as they communicated well and were confident of their own process. Many thanks!
26/10/2023 - Japan
Gerri, thank you very much for booking the room for our goods so immediate and informing us about the shipment. That’s great. We are really looking forward to their arrival. I really appreciate your support and great service.
19/10/2023 - Canada
Good communication. Coordinated moving while I was away and everything arrived fine with plenty of communication and updates on the shipments progress
18/10/2023 - USA
We're happy to confirm that we have received our shipment yesterday, within the expected timeline. We wanted to note that the pallet was really well packed. I also wanted to say thank you for your patience and precious help throughout this whole process!
From first contact to completion of the job everyone at 1st Move International had time to talk through options, they all worked with humour and appeared to enjoy their work from the driver who collected my stuff up through the office staff. I can't think what they could have done better, when my stuff arrived after several weeks at sea I was pleased but not surprised to see no damages. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and if I move again they get the call! 5 Star
11/10/2023 - Fiji
I am extremely happy with the service provided by 1st Move International. My personal effects were secured very thoroughly, even the receiving agent was very impressed. I was constantly updated on the status of my shipment throughout the process. I recommend 1st Move International because others don’t do personal/household effects. Thank you, 1st Move International.
05/10/2023 - Hong Kong
Very professional moving service, expensive but worth it. The entire team and local agent were extremely professional in handling my relocation, minimal fuss/faff, no extra fees, rapid delivery. Would recommend to friends and family/use again in the future if need be!
05/10/2023 - Nathan
Shipment arrived yesterday. Thank you for all your help with this move
03/10/2023 - USA
Movers showed up bright and early this morning and are almost done. Nice guys, they've been professional and quick!
28/09/2023 - Canada
Fast turn around. Polite staff.
27/09/2023 - USA
I did a lot of research into various shipping companies for my family's house move overseas. 1st Move had a significant advantage over the others in speed and cost. The moving crew was also pleasant and efficient. I was especially happy that they took special care with fragile items like artwork and heirlooms. Good stuff. Thanks guys!
23/09/2023 - Dubai
Our shipping arrived this morning and I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who we have delt with at 1st Move. The process was fantastic and relatively straight forward. We had great communication with everyone throughout and the company on the receiving/delivery end provided an exceptional service as well. Thank you once again for you work in making our emigration from the UK to Dubai as stress free as possible. We will endeavour to recommend you to anyone that we know who might need to move in the future.
14/09/2023 - South Africa
Your chaps turned up dead on time this morning and very efficiently loaded up all *our* boxes. I must say we have been very impressed with your firm. You have been pro-active in guiding us through all that was needed and this is so much appreciated. Thanks to all.
14/09/2023 - USA
The two fellows that did the packing were great. Big thanks to them.
08/09/2023 - USA
Moving household effects from UK to the USA is, by nature, complicated by paperwork and odd sized items. The move was completed with comprehensive and immediate help from the staff both online or by 'phone. Items were collected from storage unit in the UK and delivered kerbside in the USA with no problems and on schedule. Packing was excellent with extensive padding and protective wrapping. All in all an outstanding service.
08/09/2023 - USA
Thank you for a seamless experience with you and your colleagues
08/09/2023 - Dubai
My husband and I moved with you last year (July) from the UK to Dubai and you provided the most seamless and wonderful service :)
06/09/2023 - Dubai
Thank you so much for this, I have checked the link and the packing looks amazing
05/09/2023 - USA
ighly recommended. The process was straightforward and well managed with professional but friendly support. The communication was clear and transparent throughout. Their agent in the US also went above and beyond.
05/09/2023 - Canada
I am extremely happy with the service provided by 1st Move International. They answered all of my questions whenever I called, the removal team was on time and very quick and friendly. My personal effects were secured very thoroughly and arrived at the destination in super quick time and in perfect shape. I was constantly updated on the status of my shipment throughout the process. I wholeheartedly recommend 1st Move International. Worth every penny
26/08/2023 - USA
Very knowledgeable and helpful throughout
24/08/2023 - Barbados
Overall we had a good experience and will recommend 1st move international
23/08/2023 - Cyprus
I finally opened the last piece of box and furniture yesterday (except the pictures). Please pass my thanks to the team for the work and thank you! 😊
21/08/2023 - USA
I had a very good experience working with First Move to ship furniture from England to USA. Staff are friendly and helpful, offering good advice about filling in quirky customs documentation and other aspects of the procedure. Everything went to plan. Tracked the container ship leaving London and arriving in New York. Furniture arrived very nicely packaged. The only stressful part was trying to contact the local delivery company to see if they needed assistance unloading the pallet from their truck. Their 'phone system was down for several days apparently. However, when the truck showed up they managed to move the pallet into my garage so everything worked out ok. I would definitely recommend 1st move and will probably use them again in future.
20/08/2023 - Grand
Can't fault 1st Move. Great communication and guidance, super-speedy packers and delivered to our door on schedule. Would highly recommend.
11/08/2023 - Grand Cayman
Preparing for the shipping was good with quick answers to queries and lots of helpful advice. The reimbursement of the cost of boxes was appreciated and easy to sort. The collection team were quick and efficient. Delivery was equally good and the help from the Cayman agent excellent. We liked knowing the ship and could track progress and would have liked to know the second ship for the final leg from Florida. Very good and we would definitely use again if needed.
09/08/2023 - Canada
Fast, honest, safe service with friendly and helpful staff
06/08/2023 - Canada
Extremely professional and efficient and all the team from start to finish were very personable
18/07/2023 - Canada
House move to Vancouver. 1st Move International was very professional and careful with our belongings. The process was smooth enough and helped us feel less stressed about moving abroad. The delivery of the cargo was delayed by a month once it reached Canada, but that was not due to any fault of 1st Move. We were told delays were a possibility and the team was quick to send us contact details of the agent who was supposed to receive the shipment here in Canada. When opened the Shrink-Fast packing everything was intact inside, which was surprising and a great relief for us. We are really grateful for this and would highly recommend!Thank you for all your help!
01/07/2023 - USA
The entire process was expertly, professionally and efficiently handled from beginning to end. Extremely careful handling of my property, everything exactly as planned in terms of timing and cost. One of the most important things was that communication was regular, accurate and continuous. I am so pleased that I found this company and would recommend them to anyone shipping goods Overseas. Unpacking at this end was quite fascinating to see how incredibly efficiently and safely things had been packed.
28/06/2023 - Canada
100% worth it, in every aspect. Chap at house was brilliant. Montreal was great...only yuck was traffic in and out of the city, no ones fault. I would use again without thinking twice. Thankyou👍👍
27/06/2023 - Singapore
Very efficient and straightforward service. Good communication throughout and good handover from the UK to the local team.
17/06/2023 - USA
This is a different way of moving "part container" personal effects. I was a bit worried about the concept but Tom in the UK was extremely good at explaining the system and I have to admit it worked perfectly. 1st Move kept us informed in virtually every step of the journey. Our goods were picked up, transported then palletised and shrink wrapped at their Warehouse in Bristol. Our goods arrived in Australia (Brisbane) where their partners Conroys dealt with the Australian part of clearing Customs. All 112 packages arrived safely and intact. So of course - I would thoroughly recommend them!
16/06/2023 - Barbados
The whole experience with 1st Move International was easy and smooth. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the team. When you are moving abroad it is a stressful time but the team made it a great experience. The delivery of the cargo was exactly on time to the port in Barbados. When we got the shipment from the port everything was intact. Amazing team. Would highly recommend!
15/06/2023 - USA
My things were moved safely and nothing was lost. The packer was efficient and the delivery was much earlier than they said.
10/06/2023 - USA
Move went very smoothly and everything was packaged securely and nothing was damaged.
14/05/2023 - Cayman Islands
A brilliant team! I was apprehensive about trusting any company with all of our valuable belongings, but I can't recommend 1st Move enough. We moved from the UK to the Cayman Islands - door to door this took around 10 weeks, which was in line with our expectations. From our initial enquiry, Tom was so helpful and understanding of our needs. The quote we were given was very accurate compared to our final cost. Dave called me before the removals team arrived to ensure I knew what I needed to prepare and what to expect. On the day of collection, everything was so smooth and efficient and the driver was in great spirits, especially considering he had left Bristol at 5am to get to us! Geri ensured that the logistics with payment were handled without any issues. We were given tracking information for the first ship our container was on, and an estimated arrival date. Tessa was absolutely fantastic at keeping us updated and liaising with the shipping lines on our behalf. Everyone at 1st Move who I came into contact with was so nice and had a great sense of humour - they are a great team and really helped to make a stressful time a lot easier!
10/05/2023 - New Zealand
12cbm's happily made it from London to New Zealand in the time quoted. 1st Move International went above and beyond for me. After they arranged for our stuff to be picked up in London we realised that we'd packed our son's passport in one of the boxes 🤦♂️ I immediately drove to their packing warehouse in Bristol and arrived at 5:30pm. The 1st Move team went out of their way to stay late and help me find the missing passport. The team were all kind and friendly and you could see that they had a very well run operation with knowledgeable staff that have been doing this for years. I'd use them again in a heartbeat.
05/05/2023 - USA
Thank you so much. We have been truly impressed by the quality of service
29/04/2023 - Bahamas
Thank you so much 1st Move team, your service has been impeccable
28/04/2023 - USA
We hired 1st Move International to pick up our belongings from a UK warehouse and deliver them to our new address in WA, USA. We packed everything ourselves as far as boxes go, but we had some furniture and bigger items that did not fit any boxes. Some of those had to be repacked and reorganized. 1st Move was very precise in doing that, taking special care of fragile items (e.g. our record collection). Everything arrived in perfect condition. Nothing was damaged in any way. They were also on top of their communication, always letting us know where our items were and when we could expect delivery. Actually, in the end, they were delivered a couple of days before schedule. All in all, it was an impeccable experience and we can only recommend 1st Move International.
24/04/2023 - USA
1st Move were so friendly and helpful at every stage of my journey from London to New York. They answered all my questions very quickly, and kept me in the loop on all the developments, and were very flexible when I needed to store some of my stuff before shipping!
20/04/2023 - Barbados
This company are amazing! From start to finish they have been great. See you in Barbados belongings!
18/04/2023 - USA
Just to thank you and your colleagues for managing the shipment to my son. The shipment has arrived and all is in good condition.
17/04/2023 - USA
Matt and Shane were incredibly professional and efficient! You have some great staff members on your Team!
16/04/2023 - Barbados
I would like to say a big 'thank you' again to the boys for the way they were on Friday. They made it so easy for us and were very helpful. I would highly recommend your company.

13/04/2023 - Canada
Brilliant company to work with - really responsive and helpful office-based staff dealing with all the preliminaries for the move from London to Canada followed by amazingly quick and hard-working team of packers and movers who dealt with the 5.5 cubic feet of stuff to be shifted down 8 flights of stairs (!) into the van. Have not yet had reports from the recipient in Canada but I expect that to be wholly positive. I just wish we'd used them when we made our move to and back from New Zealand a few years back.
04/04/2023 - South Africa
Just reflecting on what a fantastic job you have done for us since my other half contacted you way back in August 2022. It’s my birthday tomorrow and you just made it even better :-)
04/04/2023 - Singapore
That was super quick! The whole process has been very quick and easy so thank you
24/03/2023 - South Africa
I’m very impressed with the fact you have one agent, and I will not have to pay extra unexpensive fees on arrival. On other shipments, it has always been expensive and difficult. I will recommend my friends in South Africa to use 1st Move International.
22/03/2023 - 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!!
17/03/2023 - USA
Absolutely amazing! Very professional and trustworthy. Communication was always great and all our items that were shipped from UK to USA arrived in perfect condition and 10 days earlier than expected. Highly recommended!
14/03/2023 - Australia
You're so on the ball. You've all been so helpful
13/03/2023 - Australia
Quick, transparent and easy. The collection, updates and experience was swift, clean and smooth. I’m so grateful to find this company to help us for the move too!
12/03/2023 - Australia
Helpful and informative staff. Everyone was really informative and helpful during the whole process. Our goods were delivered safely
02/03/2023 - South Africa
😊 Thanks for all your help.
02/03/2023 - USA
They have come and gone, thanks! All went smoothly.
01/03/2023 - USA
Good communication from all departments and associated shippers.
22/02/2023 - Canada
Being an elderly widow, my moving from the UK to Canada was a huge change for me. It was something I had wanted to do for many years. My only grandchildren are in Canada. To be honest I was very stressed at having to transfer personal effects. Right from the start 1st Move International gave me the confidence I needed, I could leave everything to them. Their kindness, care and professionalism shone through every step of the way, from door to door Cambridge to Vancouver. Everything arrived safely and I thoroughly recommend 1st Move International
16/02/2023 - Canada
16/02/2023 - Australia
Thanks so much. You’re awesome
14/02/2023 - Canada
Thank you so much for all your help and care over the last couple of months shipping my possessions to Vancouver. It's a long way via Shipping Container and Train. All the boxes were delivered safely at 11.45am Vancouver time this morning, a beautiful sunny day. Now I will feel more 'at home' with my familiar things around me. I am so relieved and excited, my new life in Canada has really begun, one of the boxes is full of Lego, so my grandson is looking forward to seeing this after school! He is excited at the prospect of a big box of Lego that once his dad played with! We are in the same building so it is perfect for me. So thank you once again for your professionalism and care.
31/01/2023 - Mexico
Had a international removal from London to Mexico City with 1st Move and it went very well. Took almost exactly three months door to door (Oct 13 to Jan 14) which is more or less what I expected, probably would have been quicker if it hadn't been around the holidays. Everything on the Mexico side (customs, transportation) went flawlessly as well with the Mexican company that they have partnered with. I mostly packed my own stuff so cannot comment on packing quality, but the few things they did pack (which was mostly the fragile stuff) arrived without a scratch. I know Mexico is probably not a common removal destination for Londoners but would absolutely recommend them given how limited the number of companies that ship there
29/01/2023 - USA
Transparent, helpful, friendly and on time. Tessa made the whole process and completing the required documentation so transparent and easy. The two moving men who packed and transported our stuff were bang on time and so friendly, professional and respectful of our belongings. All in all a great service from the team.
25/01/2023 - USA
Could not be happier. 1st Move International recently arranged the transport of household belongings from an address in Scotland to the US. We could not be happier with the way things worked out. From start to finish, the entire process was seamless and stress-free. From the initial consultation to the packing and shipping of our belongings, they were extremely professional and accommodating. Importantly, they handled all of the paperwork and customs forms, allowing us to relax knowing that this potentially problematic aspect was well taken care of. Their customer service was top-notch throughout. They were always available to answer any questions, and provided us with frequent updates on the status of our shipment. We would highly recommend 1st Move International to anyone looking for an experienced and reliable international shipping company. They made the entire process smooth and hassle-free. Not only were their rates highly competitive, but we’re extremely satisfied with the services they provided. We would definitely use them again.
16/01/2023 - Canada
Thank you so much for all your help with my emigration to Vancouver.....I really appreciate your help.... This move has given me many sleepless nights....but then you came in and took control.... I have been looking at Vessel Finder and so I can track the Montreal Express...it is so exciting.... My late husband and I used to rent an apartment on Vancouver Island.....and so many times we would see a tug pulling a barge loaded with containers on its way to Alaska, I would often wonder what was inside...now I have an idea... So Thank You for everything
16/12/2022 - Chile
Kind service. Efficient organisation at all steps. Good coordination between UK and Chile. Reasonable price
15/12/2022 - USA
Thanks Tessa for all your and the teams help this week
13/12/2022 - USA
The move was dealt with in a professional manner from booking, pick up times and dates, notifications of shipping and contact information with USA partners, kept well informed of delivery to my USA address, and receiving my goods which arrived in the condition it left my UK address. A truly professional job. Highly recommended.”
9/12/2022 - USA
Thank you! Delighted to know my belongings are packed so nicely. Will send a photo from Florida!

THANK YOU to Tessa, Tom, Geri, Dave and Patrick. Great team!!!👏👌
13/11/2022 - Saudi Arabia
The team made moving our life abroad to Saudi Arabia so much easier - they were always on hand with helpful advice no matter how silly the question. They were patient yet persistent with getting all the customs forms completed appropriately and the team that arrived to take our things for shipping were swift and professional. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
01/11/2022 - Cyprus
A perfect removal. The whole process has been a stress free experience, the collection of our possessions was faultless. Our fragile items arrived intact due to the care taken when packing our goods onto a pallet. We would recommend 1st Move to anyone moving their property around the globe.
30/10/2022 - Australia
A satisfactory experience. My Move was handled well from pick up to drop off in Sydney. All furniture and belongings were very well packed and there were virtually no breakages. The staff were pleasant and helpful to deal with.
27/10/2022 - USA
US move was easy. We were very pleased with our move. The communication from them was excellent. Everything was explained and the instructions were very easy to follow. The pick up in England was on time and they were very professional. We were kept up to date as the move progressed. On arrival everything was well packed.
27/10/2022 - USA
Thank you again for all your help throughout this process. Shane did a brilliant job with the pickup today.
21/10/2022 - Dubai
Having never moved internationally before, 1st Move were really helpful, open and honest in responding to my many questions. From start to finish they helped me adn th family relax around moving our possessions to Dubai. On the day of pickup the team were also really helpful moving and packing things that were odd shaped etc. The delivery the other end was also great and the team were done in minutes. Everything arrived as packed and would highly recommend the team!
13/10/2022 - Canada
Moving made easy and hassle free.
Dealing with 1st Move was a pleasure.
Tessa patiently dealt with all my queries and was very reassuring and knowledgeable.
No question was too silly for her to answer.
Also the movers were quick and professional.
All my boxes arrived safely at their overseas destination.
I would highly recommend if you want piece of mind when moving.
8/10/2022 - USA
I would like to leave a very positive recommendation. Everyone I have dealt with have been great
6/10/2022 - USA
Great experience. Everything was according to plan and on time. US-based receiving company was exceptionally helpful and kept us updated from when the ship docked to when it was delivered. Really well wrapped and protected and arrived with no damage.
7/10/2022 - New Zealand
I recently had a small but sentimental item sent from England to New Zealand, and my move co-ordinator was Tessa Deeks. She is an absolute asset to your company! Her customer service is exactly that … service. She is a caring employee, who went above & beyond what most employers would expect, but what every customer so appreciates. Tessa is a pleasure to deal with - knowledgeable, a great communicator, logical (! ), practical, pro active & uses initiative. That’s a heck of a lot of compliments for a heck of a fabulous employee! I’m not usually one to use such superlatives, but Tessa is worth her weight in gold to your company, and I wanted to let you know from a customer’s point of view.
6/10/2022 - USA

6/10/2022 - Dubai
Friendly, professional, excellent service. From start to finish, everyone we dealt with in the company was professional, warm, friendly and extremely helpful at all stages. The efficiency of collection and the ease at drop off and unpack was incredible. All items reached us in absolutely perfect condition. There was a delay in our items leaving the UK but this was communicated to us openly and honestly. Thank you!
20/09/2022 - Dubai
I just wanted to say thanks to the team today, they were great!
14/09/2022 - USA

14/09/2022 - Canada
Clear communication, flexible and accommodating. Thank you.
13/09/2022 - USA
I was really nervous in making my selection of which shipping company to use. Reviews for all companies I looked in to seemed to be quite mixed but the customer service from 1st Move International in answering all my initial questions was great. The cost was also really competitive and so I accepted their quote. The booking process was simple, the collection in the UK was well communicated, the tracking of my pallets on the ship from the UK to the USA was fun to follow and then the communication Stateside was also good. I was amazed that the eta given when my pallets left the UK was the exact date my stuff arrived at my house! I was expecting delays with the global shipping issues so that was a bonus. All of my boxes and furniture was well packed and arrived as I left them. All in all I had a great experience and would use them again.
30/08/2022 - USA
You were "by my side" the whole way and I can't thank you enough.
30/08/2022 - Canada

Really pleased with the collection team they did an exceptional job, were fast, friendly and professional. They helped reassure my wife and were very good at helping her with the china items. I’ve been really pleased with your service and professionalism at all points.
20/07/2022 - Canada
Very impressed with the collection team (Rob & Neil)
18/07/2022 - USA
I would really like to say how pleased I am in having had 1st Move recommended to me. From the initial conversations with Tom, and the challenging situation of finalising a collection date with Dave, to the detailed communication received from various members of the teams to help us be ready and confident with shipping is ALL really great.
The drivers who came to us today were fast, efficient and friendly and kind. I really appreciated how down to earth and humorous they were because I am finding this moving process very stressful, and kindness and humour make the whole thing a lot easier. I am very grateful to them. I really appreciated their knowledge and advice because I had questions concerning paintings and about exceeding my quotation and so on. I found them very informative and calming.
I will readily recommend your company to anyone making such a move.
14/07/2022 - Taiwan

Move from London to Cyprus. We were very happy with the whole experience. Very nice team to deal with, friendly and helpful. All our items arrived safe. We will strongly recommend this company.
26/06/2022 - New Zealand
The 1st Move team were excellent from start to finish! I’m delighted to have had them recommended to me by a friend who also had her stuff shipped from the UK to Aotearoa NZ. I can't fault your communications - you kept me in the picture brilliantly. Everything arrived safely, just MAF NZ who opened a couple of things and i think they must have been the ones that broke the bottom of a leg of a chair, because your packaging was seriously good! As an almost plastic-free household the amount of bubble wrap was a bit over the top for me, but at least it can go to the soft-plastic recycling here. Thank you for bringing my personal belongings to me - I’m now enjoying opening the boxes like it's Christmas!!

1st move International was fantastic very grateful for the company to help on short notice and received my personal belongings in South Africa without any hiccups. Thank you
12/06/2022 - USA
We were pleased overall with the experience. There were a couple of plastic totes that broke during transit because of how they were packed (by us) and palletised (by 1st Move) but contents were absolutely fine.
We were charged an $80 "emergency congestion charge" when it arrived in the States, but we were pre-warned there could be some unexpected charges and 1st Move told us to budget worst case $300 for these fees, so we were in budget. You can see the shipment arrival process on our YouTube channel, parkerlings. Note the benefit we had by having access to a skid steer to move the pallets where we needed them.
Overall, good communication especially when there were various delays through the process. Thanks 1st Move!
11/06/2022 - USA
1st Move was great to work with and our relocation from London to the USA went well and was roughly delivered as estimated. The UK side was very smooth and had great service all around. The receiving end in the USA was not at good, with sparse service updates from the end contracted logistics company. The shipment arrived at our residential address with no pallet jack or way to get the actual pallets off of the truck, so definitely a miss for the "logistics experts" doing the delivery. All around, I'd recommend this service above other international shipping options that our friends have used, which have had many more challenges and delays.
01/06/2022 - Dubai
The guys came this morning and took our modest shipment. They were great and were really fast efficient and friendly. Thanks to you both as well for the excellent comms and advice.
25/05/2022 - South Africa
Great service, great communication and excellent packaging. Shipped some household items from UK to South Africa within 8 weeks from collection to door delivery. Would recommend 1st Move to everyone.
22/05/2022 - Buckinghamshire to WA, USA
I would give more stars if I could! 1st Move shipped 4 large pallets from the UK to the US for me and what seemed like such a daunting task to me, they handled awesomely! I had 2 collection addresses and I was already in the US and wouldn't be there for the collections. 1st Move collected everything from my storage locker facility, who also gave great feedback how the collection went. The whole process went very smoothly, and I was very impressed how everything had been wrapped for protection. I spoke to various people at 1st Move and everyone was always very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend 1st Move anytime. Thank you so much!
18/05/2022 - London to NSW, Australia
Efficient and professional service Good and friendly communication from Tessa
08/05/2022 - Hove to TX, USA
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!
14/04/2022 - London to Pretoria, South Africa
I needed to have my stuff shipped from London to South Africa. Oh boy! These are the best guys in the business of shipping. From the initial response to my quotation request to the time of shipment, the guys never set a foot wrong. The shrink wrapping they do is second to non. Goods arrived intact because of the way they shrink wrap them. No chance of any breakages from start to delivery, I highly recommend them any time.
26/03/2022 - London to Cape Town, South Africa
My wife and I needed to ship some goods to Cape Town from London, and 1st Move came up trumps. They were extremely professional and courteous at all times, and made sure that everything was packed securely and safely, including some precious musical instruments! All the goods were delivered to our door without issue. The only small niggle was it took slightly longer than expected to get here even though we got everything packed on time.
09/03/2022 - Guildford to MA, USA
1st Move International handled a shipment of household stuff from Surrey UK to Boston USA for me. I thought they were amazing. It's a complicated thing to do, navigating customs review etc, but they made it so straightforward and easy to follow. Everything arrived ahead of scheduled and without damage - including glass and paintings. Super pleased with their service and I'd use them again.
08/03/2022 - Cambridgeshire to ON, Canada
My experience with 1st Move was wonderful, very efficient and it arrived almost a month earlier than they initially expected. Everything was packed in their warehouse and arrived safe and sound. I would use their services again
02/03/2022 - Reigate to George Town, Cayman Islands
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.

Great communication, thorough and very helpful, pleasant experience!!
17/02/2022 - Greenford to Marsascala, Malta
Thanks for ur services the stuff is in my country, I tried some other companies, but thank god that I chose you. You were also very helpful. I thank you again.
30/01/2022 - Kent to Durban, South Africa
Moving from the UK to Durban in South Africa - 8 cubit meters of household goods.
From the initial quotation, the insurance, picking up our packed boxes, wrapping our goods and shipping to South Africa, to maintaining contact with the overseas agent for onward delivery to our final destination address, the service provided was excellent. There were a ton of hiccups from us with regards to timing but they provided the necessary assurance and service. A little more expensive than some of the other companies that do not wrap your boxes together, but definitely worth it. Would use them again without hesitation.
28/01/2022 - London to PA, USA
1st Move International provided quality service for a move from the UK to the US. Communication from the company was prompt and helpful throughout the process. Belongings were wrapped carefully and arrived intact and in excellent condition, including delicate glassware. The quality work is competitively priced as well. In the midst of life's challenges, they made an international move an easy process.
24/01/2022 - Bristol to SD, USA
Responded quickly to a short notice international move. Worked with us while we struggled with personal logistics.
Packing crew showed up on time and was efficient and covid aware.
Pricing was fair and company contacts were highly responsive.
Company contacts were very responsive and knowledgable.
Would use them again.
10/01/2022 - Wirral to QLD, Australia
Second time I've used this company; if anything, it was even smoother than the first time (which itself was an entirely satisfactory experience). Service does everything it says on the tin. Would recommend.
30/12/2021 - Devon to BC, Canada
Thank you for your professional handling of my shipment, with no damage to the items, and appreciate especially that you have made sure to include all details needed for the move, and guidance in every step of the process. I would recommend this company for any overseas move so that anyone can have piece of mind when looking for an international shipping company.
17/12/2021 - Birmingham to VA, USA
With the outset of covid and my belongings in storage in the UK and myself already located in the US. i found 1st move international very professional and informative although it took me three years to finally be reunited the process was made easy and felt that i was looked after. would definitely recommend the company and any associates connected.
14/12/2021 - Lancashire to San Diego, USA
Shipped items from UK to San Diego - everything arrived safe and on-time!
10/12/2021 - Hampshire to Cyprus
We recently moved to Cyprus from the UK. Despite the fact that there was a delay due to the our moving load having to go on another ship (no fault of 1st Move) we received great customer service and our boxes and items were so safely wrapped and stored that they looked the same as when they were picked up. We were so pleased with the professionalism, communication and care they showed for both us and our items that I would have given 10stars if possible. Small hiccups aside they made our move so stress less and breezy and we really appreciated them for that. Would highly recommend and use again
10/12/2021 - Maidstone to Brazil
Excellent service door to door. I am very happy with the service provided
10/12/2021 - Talsarnau to Halifax, Canada
A great company. I had items shipped to me from the UK to Canada. I must say I was very impressed with 1st Move International from start to finish. This company deserves 5 stars. My items were from my mother's estate and very meaningful to me. They were there for any questions I had. They kept me informed throughout and helped with all the necessary paperwork. Everything was packed carefully and despite having many fragile items, nothing got broken. I would definitely recommend this company for shipping your items overseas.
05/12/2021 - Wiltshire to TX, USA
After a few weeks of research we chose 1st Move (who were not the cheapest) but appeared to offer everything we required. I read some reviews which were both good and bad. (The bad made me wonder if we’d chose the right company to move our belongings) I can honestly say that whenever I had a query/question Tessa answered immediately. All staff that I had contact with were above and beyond helpful. We couldn’t fault the professionalism of the staff, even those that came to the house under Covid times. We packed the majority of items ourselves and left anything of value that required insuring to 1st move. Upon receiving our freight in Austin TX it was well packed, well sealed. Not a drop of moisture was visible anywhere. No items were damaged. The US delivery company were indeed 1 man, so expect when it states curb side drop off, that’s exactly what you get unless there is an option to get them to unload within your property. The only niggles I have is the small print really requires reading by everyone at the start of the process and familiarise yourself several weeks later, 4-6 week delivery was quoted, but that was a little on the optimistic side. I guess with all the world issues currently, it took 9 weeks door to door (but Covid is the new normal now and so this should always be factored in). Overall very satisfied and would recommend 1st Move to anyone and I’d certainly use them again if required.
04/12/2021 - Porth to South Africa
I can assure you that if you choose 1st move you have chosen an unbeatable service Reliable and efficient
26/11/2021 - Lanarkshire to Cyprus
The team at 1st move were outstanding! Great communication and really helpful throughout. Thank you for making process so easy!
25/11/2021 - Crawley to Canada
Everything right from getting the quote to having my belongings arrive in their new country was flawless and they were exceptionally helpful throughout and very competitively priced too.
18/11/2021 - Cheltenham to South Africa
We wanted to contact you to say thank you for a brilliant service right from the collection in Cheltenham to delivery here in SA. Dealing with your Company in all departments has been a pleasure. I wanted to thank in particular your team that packed our goods in such a professional way, very safe and all individually wrapped and protected. We would reconmennd your services to anyone. Well done, it's rare to find such a complete team.
01/11/2021 - Haverfordwest to IN, USA
I've used Autoshippers and their sister company (1st Move International) 3 times for moving my personal possessions from the UK to the USA. I CANNOT RECOMMEND THEM ENOUGH! They are professional, courteous and give excellent communication. They were extremely patient with my last shipment when it was delayed a number of times before delivering to them. I have no hesitation recommending them to anyone. And they are the only shipping company I will use, period. Thanks!
29/10/2021 - Bristol to WA, Australia
The guys at first move did an excellent job of getting various parts and components together and well packed for my car Restoration in Australia, from initially talking to Tom in sales and then Tessa and Mike, they were really helpful in getting it sorted out, some items were not delivered and Tessa tracked them down to the next door premises! Also thanks to Dave in the warehouse. I have had two other shipments from UK to Australia with 1st move and would highly recommend them.
23/10/2021 - London to Israel
The people I was in touch with were extremely responsive and polite. The material sent by email was clear and simple. The price was slightly on the upper range of my prediction. The agent in the target country was helpful and creative. The cargo came in as promised, very well packed and without any damage. Thank you.
22/10/2021 - Berkshire to Oregon, USA
Absolutely smashing experience end to end. Bespoke and curated. I've worked globally for a decade across the globe and have found the 1st Move International to be the best experience hands down.
19/10/2021 - Sussex to Lija, Malta
Am writing this to thank all of you for the excellent service for my move. **** in Malta especially was a diamond and really worked hard to sort out the release of my goods. Thank you again

14/10/2021 - Newbury to OR, USA
Absolutely tip top move from the UK to the states during these challenging times during COVID. This is absolutely the best, most professional and curated move experience I have had over 25 years of working globally. Fantastic job 1st Move International! Absolutely highly recommended! The quality of preparation, wrapping and security on the pallet is amazing.
10/10/2021 - Reading to Ontario, Canada
I had a great experience with 1st Move International moving my belongings from UK/ Reading to Canada/Ontario. Communications were easy and fast. The guys who packed my stuff were quick and efficient. I had many fragile items that needed an extra care. I was kept informed of each step along the way. Also, the initial quote ended up being slightly less once my things were weighed and packed up which was a bonus! On the Canadian side, I had to go to Immigration to get my stuff released due to some paper work needing to be signed but other than that, it was delivered all in a great condition and nothing missing. I would definitely recommend 1st Move International!
03/10/2021 - Kent to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

08/09/2021 - Watford to Gauteng, South Africa
Moved my stuff from UK to South Africa and made sure it got delivered to my front door!!. From the first day of packing it all up to the shipping they were amazing. Made sure all paperwork was in order and kept you informed on when your stuff was shipped and gave all details of shipment and when it could arrive and who to contact... a must if you want to move abroad!! Thanks
05/09/2021 - Berkshire to Texas, USA
The service and support these guys provided from beginning to end was exceptional. They made everything as stress free as possible. Thank you all so much!
03/09/2021 - Edinburgh to Jacksonville, USA
Moving overseas during covid was a daunting task to begin with. 1st Move International was brilliant. Everything was handled flawlessly, paperwork, collection, shipping. Great job to the cast of many at 1st Move.
31/08/2021 - London to Melbourne, Australia
Great service and communication. Everything went to plan. Even recommended a great receiver and broker on the receiving side who was equally excellent. Can't recommend them enough.
12/08/2021 - Bristol to Fremantle, Australia
A huge thank you to all the guys at 1st Move, it's been a mission but all my bits are together, great customer service and support. Awesome Job.
11/08/2021 - Bridgend to NC, USA
I can honestly say this company treated me and my shipment with the greatest of care and consideration. I was kept informed all the way through. I would highly recommend them.
11/08/2021 - Solihull to OK, USA
The professional team of 1st Move International took the stress and hassle of moving my things from the UK to USA ( during the pandemic ) with ease and comfort. From the start when I was just asking for information and quotations they were extremely helpful, polite and friendly and knowledgeable. I would like to say thank you to all of you, special shout out to Mike, Dave and Tessa and the wonderful gentleman (sorry I forgot his name) who picked up our things. It was a windy and rainy day when he went to the house. He was there on time as promised! I appreciated all the prompt emails. All details communicated every step of the way. Tessa, thank you for your help and patience for my never ending questions. All in all my things arrived intact and in good shape. Thank you for taking good care of my consignment. The packing was great. Kudos to the packing team! I would highly recommend 1st Move International for your shipping needs. A friendly, professional, transparent, well organized company! Warmest regards to all :-)
10/08/2021 - Doncaster to Queensland, Australia
Excellent end to end service during COVID restrictions including regular email and telephone communication, packing and collection in the UK, online paperwork/customs and delivery to my home in Australia - thanks
30/07/2021 - Bridgend to NC, USA
Just wanted to thank your team for an awesome job. Everything arrived in great condition . The delivery driver was super nice too. I have been blessed by all the people I have had contact with over the last few months. Thank you again for a job well done and for taking the stress out of it for me. God Bless and enjoy your summer.
30/07/2021 - Merseyside to SA, Australia
So pleased with this Company, they have been fantastic since the first conversation about moving our goods back home to Australia, to picking up our boxes and to this final picture before our boxes start their journey over the waters. Thank you for your professional service.
29/07/2021 - Cambridgeshire to Missouri, USA
With it having been a few months, I am sorry to say I've fogotten names. Wish I hadn't because they all deserve recognition.
What I can say, is that the service was incredibly streamlined and made very easy for me. No question was too much, no phone call annoying.
The staff at every step of the way were very friendly, helpful and comforting.
I couldn’t recommend these guys more.
There were slight delays in recidivist our personal effects to no fault of the service, simply sign of the times with the pandemic.
Thanks to all of the team who made it so easy for my wife and Into move to Australia! Thank you."
22/07/2021 - Oxford to Queensland, Australia
1st move international were incredibly friendly and helpful throughout my move of boxes of books and homewares from the UK to Australia, even while working in the middle of a pandemic. My boxes arrived in perfect condition and were clearly well cared for. If I ever have to undertake a similar move then I will definitely use them again!
07/07/2021 - Oxfordshire to Rio de Janeiro
The service in England was first class. Very efficient and pleasant and competente responses from the staff. The problem has been at the port of destination, where I've confronted enormous costs for storage before the tax authorities got round to evaluating my case. Can I suggest that you warn your customers that, as well as possible import duty, they will face this extra cost. Obviously, this is out of your control but it's valuable information for the customer. Thanks for everything.
02/07/2021 - Berkshire to Florida
I want to thank everyone who was involved in shipping my boxes from bracknell UK to largo Florida .everything arrived safely nothing was damaged. Thank you all again so much.
17/06/2021 - Berkshire to Las Vegas, USA
Even with the inconveniences of COVID-19 shutting down the world, 1st Move International went above and beyond for our overseas move. All of our items were packed, sealed, and delivered without a single break. It is amazing that there was no damage to any of our items taking into consideration that there was an Atlantic crossing, countless warehouse moves, train shipments, and truck deliveries. The only moving company I recommend!
12/06/2021 - Reading to MD, USA
Had a wonderful experience with 1st Move International. Had to transport my belongings without a lot of warning from UK to USA and the team were there to answer my questions quickly and got my things packed and shipped over without any hassle. My belongings were packed very securely, with multiple layers of protection. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who was looking to ship international.
11/06/2021 - Lancashire to MI, USA
Used 1st Move to move to the USA.
Absolutely fantastic company to work with and whilst not the cheapest, it really is what you pay for (and a little more!).
Very smooth process getting it onto the ship and through both sets of customs and apart from a little hiccup with their overseas logistics agent (which was the agent's fault ultimately) it arrived at my new home pretty smoothly.
The hole picture attached to this review shows the ""first cut"" into the pallet on unpacking and shows just how far they really got with the shrinkfast packaging to keep your stuff safe.
10/06/2021 - Hertfordshire to Dubai, UAE
Really good value - excellent service and communication
10/06/2021 - Bedfordshire to MO, USA
Great experience with 1st Move. They were responsive, helpful, prompt. They worked not only with myself but with my family back in the UK to make sure everything went smoothly and quickly. My shipment arrived safe and sound. I highly recommend these guys.
07/06/2021 - Llanelli to GA, USA
Everything went to plan. Communication was good. There were some delays at the end, but that was not of 1st Move's making. All give pallets arrived. I would recommend 1st Move!
03/06/2021 - London to Kallangur, Australia
Thanks folks. Amazing Job👍
25/05/2021 - Reading to MD, USA
My stuff arrived safely. Thank you so much for making this process so easy.
25/05/2021 - Manchester to Barbados
Amazing service from 1st Move International. My wife and I used their services for our move from Manchester, UK to Barbados. Our quote was very affordable and it only took to three weeks from door to door.
24/05/2021 - Kent to NJ, USA
We're very satisfied with 1st Move International, when our stuff arrived everything was intact, they did an amazing job with the packaging, layers of protection, we really recommend their services very professional team.
14/05/2021 - London to Dubai, UAE
Would recommend this company , they were great communicators, and I always had a swift response to any queries. Any issue that I had ( which was final invoice v quote price ) they resolved efficiently. They were really helpful and all of the stuff arrived on time , and well packed. They removed a lot of the stress in moving overseas, particularly during the pandemic.
11/05/2021 - Bristol to Auckland, New Zealand
I was helped by Tom in Avonmouth through the whole process of moving my household possessions from Bristol to New Zealand. The whole process ran smoothly and entirely to plan with the packing being exemplary. The handling at the New Zealand end was easy primarily due I think to the packing principles and skills of the Avonmouth guys. Thanks team, if I were to do this again I would certainly choose you guys and would recommend you guys to anyone.
10/05/2021 - London to Dubai, UAE
It was really good service. Shipment made easy from London to Dubai..nothing damaged..everything was perfect
30/04/2021 - Essex to Larnaca, Cyprus
1st Move shipped a small pallet of personal goods for me from UK to Cyprus in the early part of 2021 when they had to contend with the "double whammy" of Brexit and COVID 19. The shipment was perfectly packed (as in really sealed) and arrived in great shape. At all stages they were efficient, communicative & polite and the consignment arrived in Limassol exactly on schedule. 1st Move also arranged for Customs Clearance and house deliever locally and despite a frustrating amount of paperwork this end (thanks Brexit) that phase too was extremely well managed. I'm not planning on returning but if I ever do I would contact 1st Move for sure. Highly recommended.
14/04/2021 - London to Virginia, USA
Very speedy pick-up from our flat, the team was expert and made quick work of our 1 bedroom to include carefully packaging our exercise bike. About 7 weeks after the household goods were picked up in London they were delivered to the East Coast USA. We have moved with about half a dozen companies over the past decade and this was the first time everything arrived intact. On occasion the company took a day or two to respond to emails but they always answered all questions accurately and fully. We would highly recommend using their service for a UK to US move.
08/04/2021 - Cambridge to the Cayman Islands
Efficient, quick and very well-organized. I would use this service again. They are excellent in customer service and response. They shipped my things from Cambridge to the Cayman Islands whilst I was abroad and things could not have been done better.
06/04/2021 - West Sussex to ON, Canada
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Whenever I had a question the were quick to reply. The process could have been explained a little clearer but all went well. We were very pleased with the packing and management of our personal property and furniture. Everything arrived intact! We also appreciated the sealed pallets as an added Covid measure. I would have appreciated receiving the list of goods prior to our departure as we needed it to clear customs when we declared it at the airport. It required an extra trip back to the airport, with the list, to complete our declaration. The only disappointment was the time it took to get our belongings. We paid a premium using this company to get our stuff quickly but it still took 6 weeks. I can understand some delay due to Covid but it was more than we anticipated. We also had to pay extra at our end to have it delivered to our residence. Be prepared to possibly pay for customs inspection if your shipment is chosen for inspection . Of course ours was! I think under normal circumstances, if you want your belongings quicker, this is the company to use.
17/03/2021 - Derbyshire to ON, Canada
Excellent service all the way from collecting goods to clearance and collection in Canada - second time using 1st move and would highly recommend
17/03/2021 - Cheshire to GA, USA
1st Move packed some very precious family furniture and mementos at my late mother's house near Manchester, England, and everything arrived in Savannah, GA USA in perfect condition. We did have to unpack the pallet ourselves when it arrived so be prepared for that. The communication throughout on both sides of the Atlantic was conducted with old-fashioned care and courtesy, accompanied by great tech so we always knew what was happening. Phones were answered by real people who remembered our previous conversations!!! Highly recommended.
11/03/2021 - Hemel Hempstead to Florida, USA
Exceptional team providing outstanding service to customers from initial enquiry through to receipt of goods in the destination country. I would recommend 1st Move to anyone embarking on overseas shipping of household goods and / vehicles. Excellent value for money, efficient communications, friendly and professional staff.
04/03/2021 - Cambridge to BC, Canada
Yay! Thank you for your amazing service!
04/03/2021 - Essex to Cape Town, South Africa
Cannot wait for arrival. Thank you so much you have been so professional.
25/02/2021 – Wakefield to Texas, USA
I was looking for a reliable, trustworthy company to help me move my items from the UK to the US. I definitely found this in 1st Move International. Although they are not the cheapest - which was a good thing - they are certainly knowledgeable and effective at international shipping. From first contact to ongoing communication to the movers who packed my items, I was impressed the whole time. I highly recommend them.
17/02/2021 – London to Cyprus
Excellent service. Speedy and very reliable
17/02/2021 – London to Perth
I chose 1st move as I liked their transparency in wrapping your goods and measuring them on pallets and sending you photos. Phone calls and quotes and paperwork was as clear as such a tricky process could be. The man who came to collect was bang on time and very professional. All staff I spoke to on the phone were helpful too. The goods arrived in good time and in perfect condition. The wrapping that 1st move did was very impressive and we breathed a big sigh of relief when we eventually got it all home. With so many bad reviews on shipping companies out there I just wanted to share my experience and I had a very good one with this company.
05/02/2021 – Kirkaldy to New Zealand
The whole process was quick. The boxes arrived in NZ quicker than I thought.
29/01/2021 – London to Dubai
smooth move to Dubai +responsive, helpful, expert and professional team
20/01/2021 – Tamworth to Fremantle, Australia
Thank you! Great to see my most cherished belongings being cared for by you guys. Will perhaps use you again with my classic car in the future
16/01/2021 – London to Canada
I was very impressed with their efficiency and attention to detail. My shipment of just 1 pallet was securely wrapped and shipped on time. Especially in these covid times, the procedure was straightforward and timely.
15/01/2021 – London to Canada
Just wanted to let you know that my shipment arrived safely and has been unpacked. Everything looks great, really happy with the service.
15/01/2021 – Hampshire to Canada
This is the second time I have used 1st Move International to ship my belongings from UK to Canada. Each time has been a 'slick' and easy to understand process to enable my belongings to be organised, collected and delivered to the receiving warehouse in Canada. I would use again in the future.
07/01/2021 – London to Greece
Many thanks again, everything arrived intact and excellently packed; I truly appreciate your professionalism and quick action. Your agent in Greece/Zakynthos is really very good too. It was a brilliant experience, thank you.
05/01/2021 – London to Kouklia, Cyprus
All went very well and I have now received all my belongings - nothing broken! Thanks so much for your service, best regards
12/12/2020 – London to Melbourne, Australia
1st Move International was extremely good with helping us with our international move. They took so much of our stress away as they picked up the boxes and packed the crate themselves. They had developed a "COVID-SAFE" wrap so that our shipment wouldn't have to sit for two weeks upon arrival. They were very responsive to any questions we had, and communicated very well through the whole journey. When unpacking none of our stuff was broken, wet or crushed in anyway. I would highly recommend to anyone thinking about shipping overseas.
23/11/2020 – Cambridge to Conway, USA
1st Move International packed and shipped the contents of my house in the UK and delivered them to me in Massachusetts, USA. It was a very stressful time for me since I had to do the whole thing unexpectedly and remotely because of the Pandemic.They were wonderful throughout the process. They assisted me every step of the way. My belongings arrived beautifully packed and with no breakages - even the crystal glasses! I am very grateful to them.

15/11/2020 – Oxford to Warrandyte, Australia
Well-packed pallets, good-value!
10/11/2020 – Sussex to Duluth, USA
Our fourth transatlantic move with 1st Move. Tessa and all of the team were extremely helpful and everything was on time, with zero problems. The delivery was effortless and the driver even helped offload right into our garage. We had cheaper quotes, but for sure you get what you pay for - not a single issue from beginning to end. Thanks guys!!
10/11/2020 – Mold to Canada
Wow, it's all I can say. From the word go, First move International was there for me, no matter how stupid the question I had. The whole process was done with ease and simplicity, and the whole crew was extremely pleasant. I have already recommended you and will continue to do so in the future. Thanks for making the next leg of my journey a little easier.
4/11/2020 – Hayes to Kallangur, Australia
Thanks to Tessa and the team for an excellent service. I got stranded due to COVID-19 and was unable to return to the UK. I had to organize the shipping of my belongings from the UK from a far. Everything arrived safe and sound, I was well informed and taken care of throughout the entire process and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company. A very happy customer!
30/10/2020 – London to Zante, Greece

10/09/2020 – Oxford to Melbourne
Just to thank the team for a great job with our move - actually we just received it this week due to delays with Covid-19 at the Australian end.You offered a good value service and comms was easy. The way the pallets were packed and had protective wrapping was well done. We appreciated it!
01/09/2020 - Luton to Charleston, SC, USA
Service was excellent from staff who handled the arrangements to the packers who did a great job. Would highly recommend.
06/08/2020 – Crewe to Malta
I recently used 1st Move International to ship some personal items from my parents home in the U.K. to my new place in Malta. This was completely foreign to me having never moved before and I found the company helped me every step of the way. This was especially helpful as I am not very computer literate and the staff were always so helpful and obliging when I contacted them with my numerous queries. I used the professional packing service and this was done efficiently and with good care. All my goods arrived safely shrink wrapped on the palate and transferred to my flat. I paid extra for door to door delivery but this service was well worth it to me, being a single woman alone in a new country. I found the staff very friendly and helpful in all aspects of the shipment and I would recommend this company highly to anyone who needs to do a shipment.
04/08/2020 – Stevenage to Malaysia
I moved my personal effects out to Sarawak Malaysia in July this year and can highly recommend 1st move for their efficient service and the packaging was excellent all goods arrived safe and sound with no breakages.
02/08/2020 – Preston to Saudi Arabia
I moved out to Saudi Arabia in November 2018 and initially lived here on my own for 3 months before being joined by my wife and young daughter, initially we only had what I had bought and what we could bring as luggage on the aircraft.
It soon became apparent that we wanted to bring out more of our possessions to make life easier and feel more like home (plus renting our house in the UK out meant that things were going into storage if they didn’t come out!) I looked through the internet to find companies who offered a service that would suit us. I found 1st Move international (amongst other companies) and contacted them for a quote. 1st Move were competitive but they also appeared to care about the items I was bringing out and even bothered to call me on a Saudi mobile to discuss any concerns / questions that I had.We decided to take the professionally packed option for all of our goods as my wife travelled back with my daughter to empty the house on her own and so it was one less job for her do. As it turns out, if we were to do a similar thing again I would pay the little bit extra for this service without hesitation as it made things so easy and was all packed and loaded in a couple of hours (we shipped 5.2 cubic meters). My goods arrived without any damage and they were still securely shrink wrapped to the pallets that they left the UK on.I am always the 1st to let a company know if they have done something wrong, but in this instance I took the time to send a thank you email to 1st Move International for their professionalism and friendly service. We had shipped crystal glassware, crockery and numerous electrical items – they all arrived in the same condition we sent them and the shipment arrived when we were told it would do.Thanks again for a great service,
27/07/2020 – Moving Gerrards Cross to Canada – Toronto
The goods arrived at our Toronto house yesterday. I am quite amazed at the idea of these household things going from Gerrards Cross in the UK, onto an ocean vessel and arriving at our house. The packing job was excellent. The cost of shipping was more than the goods would have fetched at auction or elsewhere in the UK, but the cost was worth it to the family. My husband’s parents bought the dining room set forty years ago, and were quite proud of it. It will end up at our cottage in Muskoka, where I am sure it will get another forty years of use, if not more. I don’t mind sharing my comments. I found your service through an on-line search that had users comments posted on it. I finally finished unpacking the glassware and porcelain. The only thing that was broken was a hand from a porcelain figurine that I broke while trying to pack it myself. My attempts to pack were re-done by your packers when they came to pick up the goods. I think they were being kind when they said that they have seen worse.

29/04/2020 - Esher to Miami FL, USA
After reading many review from many different companies I decided to go with first move for my move from Surrey to Miami. Honestly from the first step they were professional and made the move so much easier. All my items arrived undamaged and in great condition. Also they were the only company that told me there were additional port fees in the US and to have an extra $400 a side. This was for USA port taxes and could only be paid on arrival into the country. Every other company keep that quiet!
21/04/2020 - Liversedge to Jacksonville FL, USA
Great service once again guys. I would highly recommended 1st Move!!!!

18/03/2020 - Fareham to Limassol, Cyprus
Complex procedure made easy. 5 Stars
16/03/2020 - Romford to Paradise NS, Canada
So glad I went with 1st Move International. After reading reviews of many moving companies for my move from the UK to Canada, all of which had horror stories, I selected 1st Move because they palletise the shipment, rather than loose load a container. This felt more secure to me and, having received my shipment, excellently packed and with nothing broken I am glad I went with this option. Whilst I hope not to be moving countries again any time soon, I would use 1st Move International again for sure.
14/03/2020 - Kinross to Limassol, Cyprus
The experience of shipping my car to Cyprus was effortless. I would not hesitate to recommend 1st Move to anyone. They were very professional from start to finish and arranged everything. And would certainly use them again.

Five stars for Punctuality, Quality and Responsiveness
25/02/2020 - Winchester to New York NY, USA
We used these guys to move from Winchester UK to New York City. They got the job done when they said they would and for the price quoted. We ended up with 7 pallets (just over 5000 lbs) so rather a large move, still all done in about 3 weeks. Can’t fault them at all. The pallets were all packed sensibly and safely and literally nothing was broken in transit. I managed to drop and break more stuff while packing and unpacking than they did in moving it all transatlantic.
I made a few mistakes in what I packed (some booze, not allowed I later found out) and they were wonderful about it. Quick to point out my error and helpful, and quick to respond when I made arrangements to have someone pick it up from the packing depot. When my employer who was paying for the move took a bit longer than anticipated to pay them, there was no complaining or heavy handed threats, they just put our stuff to one side for a few days and got it on the next boat as soon as the money went thru.
All in all I would highly recommend them to anyone. I have done a few international moves like this and 1st Move International has been far and away the easiest and smoothest shipper I have used. And MUCH faster than anyone else was quoting. As I type this our stuff arrived 3 weeks ago, and the next fastest company (who btw wanted close to double the cost) would still not have been here for 2 more weeks.
25/02/2020 - Lowestoft to Brisbane, Australia
Super-helpful, professional and friendly. Really great, friendly and professional service; helped us at every step and made sure the entire process is clear, not to mention the amazing packing skills!

01/01/2020 - Whitby to Milwaukee WI, USA
Hello everyone at 1st Move. Just to let you know that we collected my goods yesterday. Everything has travelled well and the way you ship goods on shrink wrapped pallets is the most efficient way I can think of to do the job, the pallet is going on to a second life as a small platform / step to the doorway on the farm we have! Thank you for your help with my move, I am chatting to others in the UK who might be moving so I will tell them about you. All the best for the future. Regards

24/11/2019 - Camberley to Halifax NS, Canada
I honestly can’t believe how easy they made it to ship a vehicle from the UK to Canada. My brother bought a vehicle online and I agreed to sort the UK side, which I was apprehensive about, but 1st Move were more than happy to deal with us both and also with the seller for collection.
18/11/2019 - London to Montreal QC, Canada
So I moved to Canada, and needed to move all my stuff, including computers/screens/audio equipment and guitars. Overall they were really great! They came to my flat in London, took all my stuff in 15 minutes, and 45 days later, all my stuff was at my door, perfectly packed. Extra care was taken for my guitars and I really appreciate. Not a single item was damaged! I would recommand them to anyone! For me, not a single penny had to be paid over what we agreed.

Found 1st Move very helpful in all respects in shipping our two cars out to New Zealand. They made the whole process very easy and trouble free.
09/11/2019 - Stafford to Limassol, Cyprus
From start to finish it was a pleasure to deal with 1st Move. They picked up my car at the dealer where I bought in the UK and about 14 days later I could pick it up in Limassol. There everything was handled by a customs agent, a father and son team, and I was in and out in about an hour with instructions on the next step to get the car inspected and registered on Cyprus plates. I was basically hand held all the way and the car was spotless when I picked it up. Very happy with the entire process. Thank you!
07/11/2019 - Shrewsbury to Limassol, Cyprus

29/10/2019 - Nottingham to New York NY, USA
Excellent service at drop off & pick-up for RORO transport. No damage at all, and free 5 day storage at pick-up point! The paperwork process at the pick-up point was quick & easy (I used a USA Broker to handle the process as it was a 1 time event for me...). Took 10 days from Liverpool to arrive in USA. 1st Move proactively stayed in Email contact with me regarding info & status leading up to shipment, so always felt they were (are) on top of things so I didn't have to think about status or "what's next". Very easy to do business with!!
29/10/2019 - London to Sherbrooke QC, Canada

Truly excellent support and interactions from start to finish! The team was outstanding in managing all aspects of the pickup, crating, export, shipping and coordination to import an antique motorcycle from the UK to the USA. The 1st Move team was professional, responsive and knowledgeable. They made the difference in the process and outcomes. The motorcycle is now in my workshop looking as good as it did when I last saw it in the UK.

29/09/2019 - Southampton to Halifax NS, Canada
I dealt with 1st Move to transport a Citroen 2CV on RORO from Southampton to Halifax. The first thing to mention about 1st Move is the quality, clarity and accuracy of their communication. From the very first email query, it was clear that this was an organization on top of their business. For the year that it took on my side to get things organized, they never pressured me but they reminded me regularly that they were there to help. The car was located and registered in France and I was initially concerned that driving it to Southampton could pose import/export problems but I was reassured over the phone that this was routinely done. I was also worried about the fact that this car is not easy to start but again, 1st Move confidently answered how this would be dealt with. I had clear instructions of where to drop the car off and it turned out to be a very simple process. 1st Move also referred me to a very competent agent in Canada who professionally guided me through the import process. Overall, this has been an excellent customer service experience and I would certainly recommend 1st Move to anyone interested in shipping a vehicle anywhere in the world.
24/09/2019 - Winchester to Limassol, Cyprus
First class service from the team in the UK booked by phone in the morning and accepted at the port in Southampton by 4pm the same day. The ease of the whole process at both Uk and Cyprus excellent. Recommend to anyone who wishes to send a car by RORO.
20/09/2019 - Middlesbrough to Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago
From the moment of contacting 1st Move, they guided me thoroughly through the process of exporting two cars from the UK to Trinidad. All steps were well explained and saved me a lot of time, trouble and money. My cars arrived fast, in excellent condition and at a competitive rate. I can highly recommend 1st Move and would definitely use them again.
14/09/2019 - Cardiff to Sydney, Australia
Happy with the service.
12/09/2019 - Glasgow to Christchurch, New Zealand
Very communicative and professional - the delivery of my goods from UK to NZ went smoothly and all arrived intact and safe and very well packed. There were a couple of additional small charges at the end of the journey (quarantine inspection etc) however I had anticipated these. There was some confusion regarding the paperwork and the cargo ship but 1st Move International were quick to assist and resolve some simple issues. I would use them again, its a risky business shipping personal stuff overseas as there are a number of different parties involved at either end and the shipping company too. This was my first experience of this but it was a good experience.
11/09/2019 - London to Singapore, Singapore
The team has been efficient and attentive to my requests! They took very good care of my furnitures even though some were very old and fragile pieces! I highly recommend their services.
10/09/2019 - London to Halifax NS, Canada
From England to Canada. We just moved from London, England to Halifax, Canada using 1st Move and were really pleased with how it all went. The packing was extremely efficient and our items arrived exactly when we were told which was brilliant. Boxes I had marked 'fragile / do not put heavy items on top' were at the top of the pile and therefore were treated exactly as I wanted which was great. Highly recommended.
07/09/2019 - Pontesbury to Jacksonville FL, USA

18/08/2019 - Didcot to Vancouver, Canada
1st Move did a great job in communicating with us regarding costs shipping times. The best part was when the container was opened, and our car was very secure, in place, and undamaged. It wasn't even dusty. I just drove away. After 2 months in a container that came from England, all the way, through the Panama canal, and eventually arriving at the Port of Vancouver, It was a pleasure to see it completely intact. Thanks again. Great job!
18/08/2019 - Bournemouth to Jacksonville FL, USA
I have sent a number of vehicles overseas over the past 10 years and found this experience exceptional. 1st Move worked as a team and I have nothing but positive comments to make. I will certainly be using 1st Move again in the future.
17/08/2019 - Anglesey to Jacksonville FL, USA
1st Move is a first class organisation. I have used them twice in the course of three years and both transactions were successfully completed, hassle-free.

They are a very professional company and I would not hesitate to use them again and to highly recommend them to others. Thank you to all the team at 1st Move.

Nothing extra to pay, just what we paid upfront.

07/08/2019 - Lymington to Baltimore MD, USA
1st Move did a phenomenal job with paperwork and customer service. Before I was shipping with them, I was going between multiple shipping companies and waiting even weeks to get responses, and usually it was a flat no. On some of the online chats, they just hang up on you or never respond to you again. So I ended up with 1st Move and their representative answered all of my questions effectively with haste and with ease. The price was top notch and paying the bill with them took less than 30 minutes. The shipment arrived exactly as anticipated and the vehicle had no damage. Given it was my first time shipping a car, I was rather lost. But 1st Move answered all of my questions and even got me in touch with the closest dock near me. Altogether, if I had to ship another car, I'd do it again through these guys.
06/08/2019 - Warrington to Halifax NS, Canada

Please forgive the delay in sending you our thanks. We really have to thank everyone involved in getting our possessions over to Fremantle WA safely.

All our questions and queries were handled with great humour and efficiency making the whole process completely pain free. The quality of your packing of our pallet was superb and we did not experience one piece of damage or breakage…amazing! The customs officials said it was one of the best packed pallets they remember inspecting and the efficiency of the packing sheets inventory that you provided was so helpful to them (and us!) we cleared customs in 30 minutes...from the officers arrival to inspect to leaving with all docs cleared. We would happily recommend 1st Move International to any Brits leaving for Australia and please use any of the above as a testimonial... you all deserve it. Thank you all once again

1st Class Service - U.K. to U.S.A. I have used other international shipping companies in the past, but my experience with 1st Move International was by far the best.

The photo of the wrapped item they provided before dispatch was very reassuring. The piece arrived superbly wrapped, undamaged and about the time they estimated. I had no problems and would recommend them for any international move.

We had a great experience with 1st Move International moving our belongings from London to Toronto. Everyone I spoke to on the phone was super courteous and friendly and any emails I sent were answered within a normal amount of time. The guys who took the boxes & belongings from our house were quick and efficient and we were kept informed of each step along the way. Also, our initial quote ended up being slightly less once our things were weighed and packed up which was a bonus! On the Canadian side, we had to go to Immigration to get our stuff released due to some paper work needing to be signed but other than that, it was delivered all in one piece on the pallet and nothing missing. I would definitely recommend 1st Move International!

I appreciated that they sent clear instructions about how to fill in all the customs papers (otherwise quite an intimidating task!). They also always called back on the days they had promised to, and were really friendly, so I really felt looked after.

A top quality service and uncomplicated experience. I arranged to ship my son's musical equipment and personal chattels to the US from a Cardiff medium sized storage unit. Notwithstanding I had to change the date of the move a couple of times to ensure my son would be at home around the date of arrival, 1st Move took this in their stride. They were very helpful on the phone re: talking through the process and when they came to collect the items they packed it quickly and efficiently. At their depot they packed it all up even more thoroughly and I received pictures of the finished shrink wrapped pallets to accord with their final invoice which was very reasonable compared to other providers. The shipment arrived on time in the US and my son was amazed at how well everything had been packed and covered in vast quantities of bubble wrap. Every item was safely accounted for and he and I are exceptionally pleased we chose 1st Move International. Thank you to everyone involved, from the Transport Management team, through Administration to the collection and packaging teams.
01/02/2018 - Selby to Gozo, Malta

Professional service and good price. Car arrived at destination and was collected by receiving agent on schedule and as planned. First time I've ever shipped a car abroad, and all my questions - no matter how minor or naive - were answered quickly and courteously.

The order procedure, customer service and overall experience was excellent in fact 5*****.

13/11/2017 - Swanscombe to Birkirkara, Malta
Dear Tessa, Just to say thank you very much for all the team work involved in shipping my bits and pieces to Malta. It was packed to perfection. Everything was good in Malta everybody was very helpful. I’m off there again in December for Xmas and to organise my installation of a kitchen. Once again thank you very much and have a good Xmas. Regards
11/11/2017 - London to Valletta, Malta
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, I am a little late in conveying this message to you, but better late than never! I wanted to let you know that my car arrived in perfect condition and sooner than expected. So thank you for that. But I also wanted to particularly tell you that the Cargo Handling Company that you selected on the Malta end did an absolutely exceptional job - much, beyond my expectations. Doreen, especially, was incredibly helpful and responsive, going far beyond the scope of services that I had any right to expect. She assisted me (always immediately, with no delays) in not only taking delivery of my car, but she made introductions to various local insurance agents, gave me guidance about registering the car in Malta, getting my Maltese Driver’s License, giving me directions to various locations, etc.. etc.. In a country which is remarkably bureaucratic and complicated for an outsider, she made the import process much, much easier than it would have otherwise been. I cannot recommend highly enough. Best regards
08/11/2017 - London to Limassol, Cyprus

I can't fault the service I received. My boxes were picked up on schedule, and a few days later were put on pallets and wrapped. They were put on the next available boat to New York, and processed by their USA agent. I had no problems with customs, and the packages were forwarded to my location. Delivered in a timely fashion and no damages reported. I can't fault the service I received.
10/08/2017 - Oxford to Toronto, Canada
I paid for kerbside delivery from my apartment in the UK to my apartment in Toronto, Canada. Pick-up was quick and efficient. I was not charged any extra fees on the delivery end and my goods arrived in pristine condition. If I had been slow about declaring my goods with the customs agents, I would have had to pay storage fees. But I was quick about it and didn't have to pay storage fees. I am very happy with the speedy and careful service and I would use this company again.

A 1st-class, friendly, customer-oriented service. From start to finish 1st Move International demonstrated first-class customer service. Their rep explained the entire process and kept me up to date with regular email communication. I was sent timely and courteous reminders to help me plan my packing and preparation for shipping. When I had to call them, they answered my questions promptly and treated me in a friendly and professional manner. Their movers arrived (I lived in the north of Scotland) exactly on time and carefully packed my goods on their van. Later, I was shown a photo of my goods professionally packed. 1st Move International were so helpful in providing me with forms and advice on how to prepare for my arrival in Canada and subsequent delivery of my goods to my new address. I would have no reservations about recommending them to anyone and would happily use their service again should the need arise.
17/07/2017 - London to Kaiapoi, New Zealand
Friendly, professional and quick. They were always very happy to answer my hundreds of questions. Everything was packed by them really quickly and I loved how everything is sealed to ensure nothing gets lost. I got a couple of broken items but still rate as 5 star as the process to claim the insurance was quick and easy.
16/07/2017 - Glenrothes to Limassol, Cyprus
On arrival at the warehouse, I was impressed with the digital pictures and inventory of my bike taken. This put my mind at rest. A custom made box was made and the bike was delivered safe and secure on arrival in Cyprus. The cost was a little more than some competitors but I believe you get what you pay for. I will not take chances with my Ducati. Thank you for being professional guy's. Recommended!

Good Afternoon Tessa, I hope life in the UK is treating you well. I wanted to pen a few words to thank you and your team for helping me ship my worldly belongs to the USA. We moved in 8 days ago and yesterday I opened my last box, it has been like Christmas being repatriated with things I'd forgotten I'd shipped. Not one single item that I shipped was broken or even damaged by their 4,500 mile journey to their new home and that is a credit to the team that packed and moved the items. Please extend my thanks to the team that were involved I am grateful, even though I have no idea why I shipped much of the stuff I did, I guess it's because it's all that remains from my time in the UK !!! Thanks again for your patience and help, you made the process simple. My best regards.
08/03/2017 - Southampton to Valletta, Malta

Hi Tessa. We are happy to report that this Monday we drove to Baltimore and took delivery of our furniture shipment. We took it directly to a friend of ours who is a super furniture restorer. He helped us open that big black pallet your people packed up and once all pieces were out we were able to see that both pieces were intact including all sections of the two glass windows. Considering the route of travel a brilliant job! Thank you so much for all you did for us and please also thank the packing crew. After thirty years being stored on my sister's farm it will now be back in a Brunton home! Cheers

The items were well packed for their long journey and I would certainly use this company again.
10/02/2017 - Bristol to Christchurch, New Zealand
Great Service 1st Move. We were extremely happy with our experience using 1st Move International to shift our belongings from Bristol to New Zealand.

Most important of all our belongings arrived promptly with no damage or breakages.
09/02/2017 - Horsham to Richland WA, USA

22/01/2017 - Sawtry to Smithton IL, USA
Great moving experience! My previous employer always took care of my moves, so this was the first one I did on my own. 1st Move International came highly recommended from multiple friends. I was a bit sceptical because their price was so low, however I was pleasantly surprised at every turn. Their customer service through email and over the phone were top notch and not once did a question or concern go unanswered. The gentlemen who packed my household goods were professional, friendly, and definitely knew what they were doing. All 17 cubic meters (5 pallets) of my goods were packed well enough to arrive safely to the US from the UK. Even the 200 beer glasses I had arrived, not a one broken. I would use them again in a heartbeat and highly recommend them.
21/01/2017 - Bristol to Boston MA, USA
Very smooth process from start to finish. We were extremely impressed with the service from 1st Move International. The Bristol-based staff were friendly, helpful, patient and professional and the whole process was very easy, from quoting through to insurance and dropping our belongings off at the Avonmouth depot. When our things arrived in America we were contacted immediately, we had a week to collect it all from the depot here. Everything arrived in perfect condition.
20/01/2017 - Chelsea to Columbus OH, USA
EXCELLENT SERVICE (UK TO USA). This is the 2nd time I have used 1st Move to shift a few furniture items from my UK home to my US one. Both times have been fantastic. Great communication, easy paperwork, very secure packing and seamless delivery. Thank you so much! PS. Especially loved the photo of my pallet of stuff as it left your warehouse!
13/01/2017 - Gloucester to Washington DC, USA
Hi Tessa, Just to let you know that I picked up my shipment today, we stripped it down to just the cartons. I have to say we were really impressed with your packers work. Everything looked as your post packing photo with no inner box denting anywhere. Now I just look forward to opening them all to see my stuff once again. Its going to be a Christmas weekend. Thanks for a good job done. Regards
11/01/2017 - Brixham to Plant City FL, USA

04/01/2017 - Reading to Seattle WA, USA
Dear Tessa and Tom, I just wanted to drop you both a line as you had specifically helped me through the process, but this thank you is extended to your entire team who were involved. I cannot begin to express how you made something that could potentially been extremely complicated (had I been arranging it myself!) into something so straight forward. The communication and service I received from you was really second to none. I received my belongings on the 29th December and I am so grateful to your team for organizing it all and taking such good care of it, particularly the packing. Nothing was broken or damaged, it was in exactly the same condition in which I had left it. I would recommend your company in a heartbeat and if I should need to ship anything else, you will be the company I come to! Thanks again for all your help it's greatly appreciated. Happy New Year to you all. Best wishes,
03/01/2017 - Grantham to Colonial Heights VA, USA
Fantastic. These guys and gals know their stuff, they do a fantastic job, re packing when needed, everything arrived safe and sound. I will definitely use them again.
24/12/2016 - Ilchester to Davenport FL, USA
Hand-held service. Moving abroad for work was a scary business - everything new to deal with. 1st Move held our hand through the whole shipping process, with clear guidance, quick response to any questions or requirements, and good humour throughout. When we got it wrong they professionally put it right, and ensured we met deadlines along the way. Our shipping was well packed, and arrived on our doorstep exactly as packed when leaving the UK. Packing and unloading teams were extremely helpful, and all our goods arrived in good order. We were never hassled, but contact was always there to explain and guide. A first rate service, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them or use them again.

The friendliest moving company. 1st Move International had a great team. Each person involved in the move of the furniture was friendly, well informed and helpful. I had no concerns about my furniture arriving safely and the whole process was smooth as silk.

Thank you so much for all your help....the best service EVER! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all your help.
06/12/2016 - London to New York NY, USA
1st Move International were very friendly and supportive. My interactions with 1st Move International were all very positive. They were friendly and supportive from the original enquiry to the status reports regarding it's shipping status. When I realized that I hadn't completed an inventory they were accommodating to help repack and do this for me.
02/12/2016 - Surbiton to Sydney, Australia
Just a quick note to let you know that all my personal effects arrived safely in Sydney, Australia last week. All now unpacked and all are in excellent order. The plastic bubble wrap was a great way of protecting all my belongings and in ensuring that they all remained as one complete package throughout the transit process. Many thanks as well for your advice regarding attending to the customs and quarantine paperwork in a prompt manner. This helped to facilitate the process in a stress free manner. Once again thankyou to you and your entire team. Sincerely
01/12/2016 - Bromsgrove to Sydney Australia
Thank you for a stellar service.
25/11/2016 - London to Marsaxlokk, Malta
Great service, very clear pricing! We have recently moved from England to Malta. After some research and few quotations, we decided to go with 1st Move International, and were never neglected. They keep good contact throughout the process, very fair and clear pricing, and their service of pack everything into a pallet, take a picture and share with us was wonderful. How safe we felt when we saw the exact pallet we saw on facebook! Nothing has been broken and was kept perfectly. I definitely recommend to pick them, if you are wondering among several companies.
25/11/2016 - Stockport to Montreal, Canada
Always reliable and competitively priced. I've used 1st move twice now to shop from uk to Canada. Both times I've been impressed with their care and excellent customer service. My piano arrived safe and sound, packed superbly and sounding great!! Thank you so much !
24/11/2016 - Ispwich to Seattle WA, USA
Excellent shipping experience courtesy of 1st Move. From my initial enquiry about shipping domestic furniture and personal household items from Suffolk to Seattle to collecting two pallets on the west coast of the USA six weeks later, my experience with 1st Move was flawless. Professional service and advice, clear answers to questions in a friendly manner, prompt and efficient collection, packing and loading, handling, customs and shipping formed the foundation for the flawless transportation and safe delivery to Seattle.
22/11/2016 - Staines to Gozo, Malta
Hi Mark, We got our goods delivered in one piece last Thursday. It was so nice, we could see how it had been packed before it shipped and found them just as in our facebook picture. Your packing team had also done a great job and nothing was broken. Thank you very much for all your professionalism and please pass on my message to everybody involved. Regards
21/11/2016 - Kesgrave to Kirkland WA, USA
Hi Tessa, Greetings and warmest best wishes from Kirkland WA. Today, my wife and I got the shipment that you organised and that started with my first contact in the summer. Please pass on to the whole team at 1st Move our appreciation for a job well done. Every aspect of my contact with your organization was smooth, professional, friendly and fun. It culminated today, when we got the two pallets. Unloading our possessions, photographs and furniture generated excellent memories and personal reminders of your guys arriving at our house around 10am after a long journey from Bristol. Their efficiency and professionalism was outstanding and generated a phone call to you, outlining how impressed I was with both of them. It's the biggest celebration of the year here later this week. Thursday is Thanksgiving or 'Turkey Day' and we will raise our glasses and drink a toast to you, and all the team. Please share our appreciation and best wishes with everyone. Very sincerely
18/11/2016 - Camberley to Phoenix AZ, USA

Hi Tom, I just wanted to let you know that I collected our goods from the warehouse in LA yesterday. All went well, and the goods all arrived safely. Many thanks to you and your team, we’re grateful for the excellent way you handled everything. Best wishes
13/11/2016 - London to Brisbane, Australia
UK to Australia no problem. Due to a family emergency my wife, son and myself had to move out of a top floor walk up flat in London and across to the other side of the world (Brisbane Australia) with very little notice. We called 1st Move International and let them know that we needed to be packed up and gone within a week, with everything to be put into a 20ft sole use container. Surprisingly 1st Move were extremely accommodating, they were happy to discuss the move with me over the phone and more importantly answered their phone every time I rang and gave me all the information I needed. On the day their packers and movers arrived bang on time and were quite happy to grab an extra lounge suite we had in storage (we did tell them this on the phone), they packed furiously but carefully and were in and out within about 8 hours. (That's packing and moving!). We said goodbye to our furniture and understood that it would be repacked where needed onto pallets for the sailing. Having received our furniture and personal belongings now in Brisbane, I am happy to report that they did everything they said they would. The furniture arrived in the same condition it left in, nothing was broken and being at customs on the day of delivery I could see it was packed and wrapped with care. I would definitely recommend 1st Move International to anyone that asks. Great company, great people, very happy.
07/11/2016 - Kidderminster to Limassol, Cyprus
Overall excellent experience. We shipped a car to Cyprus and 1st Move ensured a smooth ride from start to finish. Their customer service was first class and they didn't need to hold our hand through the process as their experience ensured everything was covered. In fact our car was collected from the port on a Tuesday and by the Friday of the same week we had it registered on Cyprus plates and were driving it around our village where we have our holiday home. Will definitely use 1st Move again without hesitation. Thank You.
28/10/2016 - Manchester to Batam, Indonesia
Excellent work from start to finish. From home in Manchester to Batam, the service offered by 1st Move was excellent throughout, I will recommend to friends.
27/10/2016 - Weston-Super-Mare to Orlando FL, USA
Great service - start to finish. Really great to work with these guys. Everything went well. Great packing service - they make sure your goods arrive safe and sound free from any damage.
26/10/2016 - Barking to Dallas TX, USA
Excellent service all the way through. Would recommend them to anyone moving abroad.
21/10/2016 - Bristol to Houston TX, USA
To everyone at 1st Move, Thank you once again for doing such a fantastic job, not just with the packing and moving, but also with a much appreciated personal touch. Many thanks
21/10/2016 - Maidstone to Limassol, Cyprus
I would recommend you to others. Very responsive and helpful. Jason and Riccy were excellent.
20/10/2016 - Wokingham to Boston MA, USA
Fantastic from start to finish. A huge thank you to everyone for helping get my things out to Boston. I don't know how you managed to ship the antique furniture out here so carefully and well wrapped. The USA team emailed me constantly with details and as soon as it was clear it was overnighted to me and I got it all a week before it was due. These were our last things from the UK and you made the whole process easy to deal with when I was already stressed. I'm so glad I chose your team. Many thanks
17/10/2016 - Sawtry to New York NY, USA
1st Moves customer service is great. Getting my vehicle shipped from the UK to the US was no small task and their representative never flinched to assist. From arranging a customs broker in the US to being flexible with my situation, they always replied promptly with the right information I needed.
15/10/2016 - Harrogate to Sydney NSW, Australia
Hi Riccy, just a message to let you know that my car arrived ok and is now safely in my driveway. You did an excellent job really pleased. I can certainly recommend your company. Many Thanks
14/10/2016 - London to Singapore, Singapore
Hi guys, All my gear has turned up safe and sound. Not one chip or scratch. My vinyl collection is in perfect condition, it's like it didn't even move yards, let alone thousands of miles. I'm just spinning some 60's soul wax in my Singapore home right now, overlooking a massive humid thunder storm. Thanks again for the expert packing and move. Cheers
14/10/2016 - London to Denver CO, USA
My move to Denver. I cannot recommend 1st Move more highly. I moved a small medium sized pallet to Denver from London and it arrived in great time and with no damage to items. To say I was anxious is putting it mildly and I know I drove the team at 1st Move crazy with silly questions and concerns, but they were so sweet and kind and not once did they lose patience. I had read a few bad reviews that said once they handed over to the US that I might have issues, but nope not a single one. I was informed at all times, even when my shipment was going to be late. Guess what it arrived 8 days earlier than it was due! I am now wishing I had bought more furniture in the UK, to ship over as there's none of the antique stuff I love so much, here in the US! Well done to the team on both sides. If you are hesitant then just take a deep breath and trust in the experts. That's what I did and I don't regret it
K Van Sant
14/10/2016 - Liverpool to Singapore, Singapore
Great experience with 1stMove. Nothing was any hassle despite my many questions. Would recommend to anyone moving overseas from the UK.
12/10/2016 - Caernarfon to Sonoma CA, USA
Tessa, Just wanted to let you know that my bureau arrived yesterday and I was able to pick it up today. It was excellently well packed and arrived without any damage. I am extremely happy (and relieved). Thank you for all you (and the rest of the company) did to make the delivery happen.
07/10/2016 - Blackpool to Limassol, Cyprus
Fantastic service from start to finish, cannot fault at all. Dealt with Riccy who sorted everything for us. Would use again and would defiantly recommend.
06/10/2016 - St Ives to Deer Isle ME, USA
Exceptional Service! Thanks 1st Move International - you were flawless - and made a complicated move easy to execute in every way at both ends. You could not have done better. Keep it up.
04/10/2016 - Goring By Sea to Fortaleza, Brazil
Great work guys.
28/09/2016 - London to New York NY, USA
Quality service. Used 1st Move to transport goods from London to NY a few times. Very happy with the service, highly recommend the team.
28/09/2016 - Aylesbury to Los Angeles CA, USA
Picked my shipment up today. Perfect. Had to break down the pallet when I picked up in Los Angeles as it was too tall to fit in my Range Rover, but found everything was carefully packed with foam protection as well as the shrink wrap. I will also send you a couple of pics soon but thanks to all the 1st Move Folks!
26/09/2016 - Cardiff to Dallas TX, USA
Easy, stress free experience. I used 1st Move International to move from the UK to the US. They were easy to get in touch with, and always on time. The constant follow-up from their side eliminated a lot of my stress as I always knew exactly what was going on. Everyone I encountered was very friendly. My things arrived ahead of schedule and everything was intact and perfect. The pallet was well wrapped and padded. I would use them again for an international move in a heartbeat.
21/09/2016 - Thame to Limassol, Cyprus
Fast response since first seconds of communication. Democratic prices and good service on every step of shipping. The best combination of quality, service and speed! Thanks for the great work! I will recommend you to all. Best regards
10/09/2016 - Whitstable to Melbourne, Australia
These guys couldn't have been more efficient. It took me nearly 6 weeks to get my import approval from customs but it took only 4 days for these guys to get my vehicle on the ship. The communication was 100%, I was kept up to speed to the hour on what was happening, easy to contact either by phone or email. Would I use 1st Move again? YES. Would I recommend 1st Move? YES. Thank you guys, you've made this part of the process so easy thank you again. Oh, one more thing, the price I paid and the service I received was not only great value but absolutely top notch before and most importantly the after sales service.
09/09/2016 - Derby to Montreal, Canada
Excellent, quick and reasonably priced! I shopped around to move some family Heirlooms which were priceless to me. I started working with another company and they started to change the rules as the process moved forward. I stopped working with them because I lost trust. I then found 1st Move International. Not only were they nice to work with but my items got here in a fast timely fashion at a reasonable cost. They were very honest about fees as my price was reduced significantly once measured to actual size. 1st Move were very easy to talk to and explained any questions and walked me through the whole process. 1st Move would absolutely be my first chose if I ever needed to move items overseas again and I would totally give them a very strong recommendation.
07/09/2016 - Sutton Green to Eureka CA, USA
From the first contact, the service was excellent. Well organised, prompt return of calls and emails. I would have no hesitation in recommending the firm.
25/08/2016 - London to Saskatoon, Canada
I have been very happy to have moved with 1st move. As a non native speaker, they have been patient and helped me a lot. Also, everything is organized and you are never in doubt or waiting. You always can track your belongings and I found the facebook page original and reassuring. Thank you to all the team for their support. A happy customer.
23/08/2016 - Stoke On Trent to Valletta, Malta
Great service, everything made clear from the start, no nasty surprises. Definitely recommend.
20/08/2016 - Chudleigh to Wellington, New Zealand
Efficient and Good value. I picked this company to start with because of their packaging system. It then just got better and better, they helped you through every step and kept you informed of progress. It all turned up safely in New Zealand and my son had the same efficient service at the other end. No heartaches no worries just what you wanted.
16/08/2016 - London to New York NY, USA
Thank you. It was a pleasure working with your company. Kind Regards
13/08/2016 - Huddersfield to Laem Chabang, Thailand
Just one little problem in Thailand, got sorted out quickly and everything went plain sailing.
08/08/2016 - Calne to Limassol, Cyprus
Execellent as always, would certainly recommend.
07/08/2016 - Gloucester to Singapore
Relocation from UK to Singapore. Everything in the uk was fantastic and the communcation was brilliant from day one. What a professional service and even sent a picture of my shipment.
05/08/2016 - London to Toronto, Canada
Quality service with great people who care. From the get go, 1st Move inspired confidence, able to answer every question and concern I had. The collection and packing/wrapping team went beyond my expectations... carefully protecting every item. Expertly putting together a solid and secure pallet which was wrapped and everything arrived safely, no breakages. It was wrapped very well in 5 layers and packed very well....shrink wrapped (black), bubble wrapped, Clingfilm wrapped, corrugated cardboard wrapped, Clingfilm wrapped, Fragile items wrapped in extra clingfilm and bubble wrap, Stacked and arranged very well on the pallet, with odd shaped items protected in the centre of the pallet. Shipping was smooth sailing..... left and arrived on schedule. Customs agents this end had all the paperwork prepared and my shipment was a formality getting through customs. Not one item broken.... great to have all our stuff back. Thanks 1st Move - 100% recommended.
05/08/2016 - Bridgwater to Fremantle, Australia
Moving to Australia. After looking online for different companies, 1st Move were the first to get back to me and I felt like they wanted my custom, not simply wanting the fees. Once I called them back they explained the process and I was able to take my belongings direct to them saving me some money. Very impressed with their customer relations and attitude towards us.
29/07/2016 - Portland to Mellieha, Malta
Well recommended. I would recommend this company to anyone they are helpful and trusting with our stuff.
30/07/2016 - Hasleingden to Perth, Australia
The only way to go is with 1st Move International! Excellent service from the start to finish we cannot fault you. Thank you for a worry free experience, no stress required! Very well done can only recommend your faultless service.
27/07/2016 - Nottingham to Charleston SC, USA
Excellent Service. Great communication and I loved that there wasn't a weight Limit Fee. Regularly updated me on the status of my Pallet and extremely friendly on the phone. But most of all my pallet arrived when they said it would. I highly recommend them.
17/07/2016 - Johnstone to Piraeus, Greece
This was my first time shipping a car to an overseas port. I have no complaint in the way business was conducted and would consider it very efficient. I would like to say that the vehicle arrived safely and I am satisfied with the service enough to recommend to others and use again. I hope my comments prove useful for other potential customers.
11/07/2016 - Danescourt to Yakima WA, USA
Excellent service. Was very pleased with their service. They packed all my belongings into a smaller area than I expected, and communicated with me well. The items arrived a bit sooner than estimated and all was intact. I would have no hesitation recommending 1st Move International to anyone.
06/07/2016 - London to New York NY, USA
1st Class. Moved from the UK to the US with 1st Move and couldn't have asked for more. Coordinated just about everything from here with just a flying visit back for the pick up. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the collection team worked really hard on the day. Delivery was made on time and we were amazed at all the padding and wrapping and needless to say everything arrived in perfect shape. Would definitely recommend.
05/07/2016 - Cardiff to Seattle WA, USA
Just to let you know I collected the pallet yesterday from Seattle and everything was intact including Titanic, so I just wanted to say thank you very much for taking good care of it all! I'm just relieved to have gotten it all safely so thanks again. I have one more shipment to send out in the future once I am settled and will definitely contact yourselves when the time comes.
04/07/2016 - London to St John NB, Canada
Excellent Service, Explained the process well! We thought moving our things abroad was going to be complex and difficult. 1st move made the whole process very easy and straightforward. They explained the rules well and checked in with us throughout the process. They decoded the customs procedures for us and helped us to meet with officials feeling confident and prepared. Thanks so much!!!
27/06/2016 - South Queensferry to Baltimore MD, USA
1st Move were great to work with. My Lincoln was safely shipped home to America after 16 years travelling around Europe.
25/06/2016 - Brighouse to Nicosia, Cyprus
The service was exemplary. Not only was everything clear and concise during the quotation stage, but when it came to action, it went like clockwork. My car was picked up on time and all through the delivery process I was updated, even when I had to make a big change to schedule, for unforeseen circumstances. All possible assistance was given at the other end, which helped smooth working with the Customs protocols.
23/06/2016 - Southampton to Halifax NS, Canada
Amazing service. Have used before, will 100% use again.
23/06/2016 - Watton at Stone to Port Hueneme CA, USA
Excellent service. Buying a vehicle from the US, having it shipped over was made possible by the well explained and organized team. Receiving a photo of my vehicle prior to its being shipped was awesome. I will gladly post a photo of picking the car up 10.000 miles from where I last drove it. Cheers, thanks, and to more classic car collecting and shipping in the future.
21/06/2016 - Hove to Cairo, Egypt
Excellent service. Prompt response to enquiries. Very professional, efficient, friendly and polite. Paid exactly what I was quoted. My stuff was adequately wrapped and I would definitely recommend 1st Move to family and freinds who may need this kind of service.
14/06/2016 - Oldham to Clarksville TN, USA
Our move abroad. I would firstly like to thank all at 1st move international, right from the very first telephone call to the actual move you where brilliant. Having never moved in over thirty years to a move abroad was quite daunting! however it was so easy, the help and advice I received was nothing short of excellent. Everything was collected and packed all to schedule and after three weeks everything arrived completely intact nothing broken or missing just perfect. I couldn't praise the company anymore and I highly recommend them, they were fantastic from start to finish. Thank you so much, Mrs Webster.
30/05/2016 - London to Santos, Brazil
26/05/2016 - Oxford to Milwaukee WI, USA
Very Smooth Moving Experience. I used 1st Move International to transport approximately 1.5 cubic metres of personal household items from Oxfordshire, UK back to my home of Milwaukee, WI. From the very beginning the process was extremely efficient. The quotation provided by this company was the lowest out of all those that I contacted. They called my mobile multiple times to confirm details such as where to park, how to access my house, and what forms I needed to fill out. They were also able to easily accommodate a change of move date without any hassle or extra fees. There was a lot of paperwork to do - this is unavoidable when moving internationally. However they had step-by-step instructions for these forms and there were only a few minor details that were slightly confusing. On the day the truck arrived to pick up my items, the driver was extremely polite and handled my items with care. The pictures posted online reassured me that my items were carefully arranged and packaged. I was warned ahead of time that the quotation only included services in the UK and sea freight shipping from UK to the port of entry, which in my case was Newark, New Jersey. I was then contacted by their US partner company, who charged me $200 for shipment from New Jersey to Milwaukee and a $40 USD "release fee" to come pick my stuff up. Again, I was warned ahead of time about these charges and it was not a problem.
25/05/2016 - Chichester to Fremantle, Australia
All areas great.
24/05/2016 - Northampton to Santa Clarita CA, USA
Great service! 1st Move made it very easy. I had no idea where to start my overseas shipping. They were happy to answer all my questions in a super friendly manner. My pallet arrived before expected, all in one piece. Impressive service. I would definately recommend it to friends and family.
24/05/2016 - Reading to Paralimni, Cyprus
Superb service from start to finish. I was able to track the carrier online and my car arrived on the date expected. Well done to all concerned.
23/05/2016 - Heywood to Denver CO, USA
Painless and trouble-free. Second time I've used this company and in both instances it's been hassle-free. Everything arrived as promised with no breakages. The packaging was first rate - will be using them again in the future.
20/05/2016 - Southampton to Toronto, Canada
Great Service. My wife and I used 1st Move International to move some household items and personal effects from Southampton UK to Toronto Canada. The whole process was smooth and easy. The team were a great help and showed excellent email and telephone communication, clearly guiding us through the process. On collecting the shipment in Canada it was well packed and none of our personal items had been damaged in any way. This company provides great value for money. We cannot fault this service and would defiantly use them again.
17/05/2016 - Birmingham to Winnipeg, Canada
Great experience. In the lead up to the move, the staff were communicative and very helpful with every question I had. They made sure to contact me regularly to check in and make sure everything was running smoothly. On the day, the people who came to pick up my things were prompt, efficient, and friendly. I felt very reassured that everything would be organised and take care of. Great service.
11/05/2016 - Norwich to Phoenix AZ, USA
Honest, reliable and professional. Really helpful people with an excellent attitude. We were helped throughout each stage of the move and appreciate everything that was done for us.
11/05/2016 - London to Alpharetta GA, USA
Good move - was happy with results. Everything worked out, even though I was very nervous about shipping some of my most precious memories abroad. The movers were overall great.
09/05/2016 - Berkhamsted to Tauranga, New Zealand
Excellent guys to work with. We shipped our car and personal belongings with 1st move and we couldn't have asked for more. Every time we had a question it was delt with fast and efficiently and nothing was to much trouble. From start to finish the people at the office were very helpful and the guys that came to pick up our belongings were really good, also taking into consideration other people in the house. The next time we set eyes on our stuff was in New Zealand and I must say they did a fantastic job of packing it up for shipping. Great job guys thanks so much.
08/05/2016 - Paphos, Cyprus to Bournemouth, UK
Good company to deal with, friendly direct, result driven service. Thank you.
04/05/2016 - Radstock to Paphos, Cyprus
1st class service from 1st Move. Made an enormous upheaval an almost pleasurable event. Nothing was too much trouble and all the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful.
28/04/2016 - Stockton On Tees to Overland Park KS, USA
Efficient, Informative, Processional. I used 1st Move to transfer our belongings from the UK to the US where myself and family were relocating for a number of years. Right from day one the communication was excellent, answering any questions I had and raising things I hadn't thought of too, always keeping me informed of the status of my move. On the day of collection there had been communication between myself and the office and the two removals guys turned up prepared and informed. I was then notified at each stage of the shipping (the Facebook pictures of your shipment are a nice touch) until delivery to the US and the belongings arrived in excellent condition.
28/04/2016 - Great Dunmow to Limassol, Cyprus
Brilliant service from beginning to end. Would fully recommend and would use this company again if required. All members of their staff were helpful and knowledge able on their subjects.
23/04/2016 - Gainsborough to Kent WA, USA
Superb business. I moved overseas when I was in my more mature years and didn't have a clue about moving my whole life to another country. I contacted this company quite a time before my paperwork was completed and they were so good at guiding me through the whole procedure. Whilst waiting for everything to be completed, they would contact me periodically to enquire about an update and were very tactful about it. Not pushy but just asking to be given an update. When the time came they packed my belongings up and transported them and they arrived just as they left me, beautifully and carefully palletised. The staff are well informed and never impatient despite how many times you contacted them, and I did. All emails answered without delay. The cost? Very competitive and far cheaper than buying new at your destination. All arrangements taken care of and it all went without a hitch. If only every business ran on oiled wheels like this, life generally would be so much better. Thank you.
20/04/2016 - Brighton to Orlando FL, USA
My first time moving overseas. This was my first move overseas and I was very nervous about the entire process. Everyone who was involved with helping me were very kind and kept me updated throughout the entire process. They made regular phone calls and emails to double check that everything was going smoothly and they answered every question that I had. I would definitely use 1st move International again.
20/04/2016 - Ipswich to Simpsonville SC, USA
Move went well. Had no issues, the whole process went well.
16/04/2016 - Purley to Charlotte NC, USA
Everything arrived on time in perfect condition. Great service beginning to end. Lots of help with questions and forms. And all our things arrived in perfect shape.
14/04/2016 - Kings Lynn to Christchurch, New Zealand
A seamless transition through departments, and a fair price.
09/04/2016 - Wisbech to Creston BC, Canada
Customer service, packing..... all excellent. From start to finish I was kept well informed, responses on email understandable and fast. Personal interaction great. Pick up and packaging without a hitch, break or damage. Personnel patient with questions and attempting to solve any misunderstanding on both sides of the ocean. Always kept informed. Would not hesitate to recommend the company.
06/04/2016 - Ilkeston to Gozo, Malta
The experience was positive and we would use you again as the fragile items were handled with extreme care, which we are very thankful for.
03/04/2016 - Southampton to Limassol, Cyprus
Car shipment UK to Cyprus. This is probably the 5th time I have used you. You are excellent, 5 star, I will be using you again later this year.
29/03/2016 - Wembley to Johannesburg, South Africa
Excellent Reliable Service. 1st Move made my move so easy and efficient from start to finish. They were in touch within minutes, provided all the information I needed and were extremely helpful and accommodating from day 1 and right through to my goods being delivered on my doorstep. All goods were packed impeccably and safely as advertised and they lived up to their word - everything arrived unbroken and safely. Competitive prices, excellent and efficient service door-to-door. I rarely give a rave review, but my experience was extremely positive and I was so impressed with them - I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.
29/03/2016 - Harlington to Toronto, Canada
I was pleased with the quick reply to my initial enquiry and the speedy quote. Everything was done on time and all went very smoothly.

Perfect, smooth and easy. Moved some 2m3 of belongings from London to Argentina, everything arrived perfectly as they left London. Perfectly wrapped. Cheapest service on the market. They have been very helpful during all the process which requires a lot of paper work at the embassy etc. Emails were replied immediately to my questions with clear instructions and advice.

29/11/2015 - East Kilbride to Kitchener, Canada
Never having shipped anything to another country, I had no idea where to start. 1st Move International took all the guess work out of it. Every step of the way, the team were there to answer all questions, no matter how ridiculous. All emails were responded to the same day, not bad when you consider I am in Canada and all my belongings were in Scotland. Even making the payment was easy. The wonders of the internet! Once the shipment was picked up from Scotland, I was kept informed of its progress the whole way. I loved being able to track the ship across the Atlantic. Many thanks to all at 1st Move International for all their hard work, and for not laughing too much at all my ridiculous "blonde" moments!

17/11/2015 - London to Louisville, USA
This was the right company for a move from London to the US. From minute one, these people knew what they were doing and guided us each step of the way. Tessa was an amazing help with the paperwork and advance details. The crew that packed the valuables was efficient and fast as well as pleasant. Info was sent to us at each step along the way and our goods arrived a week earlier than promised, all in good shape. Honestly, I was amazed at the packing. The wooden furniture was covered in cardboard to prevent scratches. The mattress was wrapped in plastic. The entire palate was wrapped in plastic, bubble wrap, cardboard, and shrink wrap. I seriously think it could have hit the water and not gotten the contents wet! TOTALLY PLEASED. If there is ever a return to England, I hope this company can guide us for the reverse trip.
15/11/2015 - London to Spring, USA
Excellent service. Packaging staff were friendly and helpful, the office based staff always kept in touch to ensure everything was going to plan. Even getting the initial quote was hassle free.

Highly, highly recommended!!!
07/11/2015 - Kingsbridge to Onoway, Canada
Great. Thank you and the bodies there, who have been great right through. The Montreal and Edmonton factions were also good, things worked a treat. No nasty surprises from the shipping companies here, in fact the bill for the last bit was a hundred dollars less than the quote. Customs were great and the storage where we're unpacking say they'll take away all the rubbish. The pallets were packed well and everything held together superbly.Take care and give my regards (and apologies where necessary) to your lot.
06/11/2015 - Nailsea to Limassol, Cyprus

16/10/2015 - London to Paphos, Cyprus
Just a thank you for arranging the shipping of our car to Cyprus and making the experience trouble free. We went to Limassol port today to collect the car, spoke to the receiving agent. They had a very professional attitude, were easy to deal with and confirmed the charges this end as your quote. they appointed a local port agent who took us to the customs office, advised us on the process within the Cyprus law as we are taking the car back to the UK in March. We have friends in Cyprus that said the whole process for them was an absolute nightmare, and so was so surprised that everything was so easy. Thank you and your team, we will of courserecommend your services to anyone that will listen.

04/10/2015 - Norfolk to San Antiono, USA
1st Move International were exceptional in my opinion. I had many questions, and there were a few times I didn't communicate with the same person but they were able to pick-up my file and answer my questions. The price was good, and the service was outstanding. They really took the worry of shipping my lovely 25 yr old car across to USA. They also helped me contact the agent across in USA which helped me answer more questions and I was able to budget better. I was about $370 within budget!

From beginning to end it has been an ease and a pleasure dealing with this company. Friendly and helpful staff, efficient collection, and most excellent packing wrapping and shipping service. When the delivery driver arrived he asked me to personally thank the shipping company as he'd never had such an easy shipment to deliver. From the way it was packed to the collection process he was highly impressed. If I ever move again across the world I'll definitely use First Move International.

1st class operation all the way. Tessa, and all the others were great to work with. They couldn't be more helpful and understanding in taking you through all the forms and questions involved in an international move. Always available by telephone and email and never made you feel you were asking stupid questions (even when some probably were) or were asking for the unreasonable. Packing was incredible; my pallet arrived in perfect shape without a single item damaged (and I had many fragile items and framed works of art).

I was extremely happy with 1st Move international.

1st Move International are a first class outfit that puts their customer first. In an industry that in general provides a lot of lip service up front, I found them to be exactly the opposite, going above and beyond to help in a short time frame and difficult schedule. Their packaging of your goods are second to none. This is the second transatlantic move I have made in under 3 years. This one with 1st move was delivered on time without one damaged or missing item, unlike my first move with a different company where breakages were abundant and several large items went missing. I thought I would just drop you a line to thank you for your help and putting up with my paranoia during the whole shipping process. I am in possession of all goods including the corvette, and I am even more pleased to let you know that everything is here damage free.
20/09/2014 - Epsom to Durban, South Africa

I've no negativity at all. I was a little apprehensive at first as I'd helped a friend import his car last year and he came across complications, extra cost and a total lack of communication. I on the other hand was well informed and guided at every point, the collection of the car was simple, time wise 1 hour at the customs for the paper work,1hour dinner, 20 minutes in the office and 2 seconds collecting the car. Couldn't of been easier.

30/06/2014 - Northampton to Mumbai, India
Very much appreciated the tailored and personal service I got from Tessa and her team. We were heading to India and doing it all ourselves..I loaded the container myself! Having labelled and listed everything. The best advice we had was to make sure the name on the billing/ shipping docs were the same as the person who would be signing at the other end. Made life so much easier. I have friend here who had companies organise their moves and this was not conveyed. Subsequently wives who are often the ones doing the work or arriving before husbands etc, can't get their belongings. One friend had to wait three weeks to get her shipment . These little practical details when dealing with expats is important. Tessa was always available to answer questions and hope we can use them on our rerurn.

19/05/2014 - Manchester to Toronto ON, Canada
I find it hard to fault First Move International. The only glitch was my fault - I forgot to provide an inventory of boxes I packed myself - but this was brought to my attention quickly and courteously, with the suggestion of a number of costed possible solutions. I was able to put it right so there was no delay in the shipment. Apart from the smoothness of the operation, I found the friendliness and competence of everyone I had contact with a tremendous help. They realised that moving overseas is very stressful for the client, especially when, as in my case, it had to be taken from start to finish in a few days. I can recommend them to anyone moving overseas, and would certainly use them myself if ever I have to move again.

As soon as I contacted 1st Move International I was impressed by the efficiency of their personnel. I always had a very speedy reply to my emails and I was dealt with in a friendly but professional manner when telephoning - there is an 0800 number one can use and I was never kept waiting when using the telephone (and the options are clear and easy to follow). I shipped my car and a container of household effects to Cyprus - the process instructions were precise and clear and although there was a delay in receiving the container, 1st Move showed concern and dealt with the matter exactly as I would have expected when I went back to them. The delay was in no way due to 1st Move (it was the shipping line involved) and I was very impressed with 1st Move's response. I would recommend their friendly efficient staff to others considering shipping service providers. I even had some excellent quality packing boxes provided by them.

08/04/2014 - Bridgend to Tunis, Tunisia
I still marvel at the fact that I last saw all my belongings in a self storage facility in the UK and now here they all are precisely where they should be, all present and correct thousands of miles away. All I had to do was pay what I consider to be a reasonable fee to the experts, 1st Move International. I particularly liked the way all aspects of my shipment were overseen by one person, Tessa. The personable but efficient way this one point of contact dealt with things was excellent. I know that my requirements were far from usual but they were all delivered as promised. The Tunisian handling agent also did well this end. Thanks for a job well done,
31/03/2014 - Lichfield to Fremantle, Australia
Hiya Dave. Very pleased with the level of service, everything went smoothly and would happily recommend your company. The Australian end also went smoothly
26/03/2014 - Romford to Bangkok, Thailand
Hi 1st Move International. I can report that my belongings arrived safely and nothing was broken. I would like to thank you for your very good service. The stuff I had not packed was packed perfectly and some of the stuff I had packed not very well was repacked safely. I would also like to thank you for using the import agents in Bangkok as they arranged all the paperwork and customs forms for me and even delivered my belongings to my door. I am very satisfied with the service you provided for me and if I need to import any more goods I would certainly use you again and if any of my family or friends need to ship anything I would certainly recommend your company. thank you again for a fantastic service.
25/03/2014 - Durham to Minneapolis MN, USA
Hi Dave- Everything is here safe and sound! I have been very satisfied with your services and have already given your name to a few other people who will be moving belongings in the coming year. All the best,
24/03/2014 - Steyning to San Francisco CA, USA
I just wanted to let you know that my Mum was so complimentary about the Team who came to pack up our shipment. She said the Team was right on time (impressive in that they were coming from Bristol), very efficient, courteous and professional - she felt very at ease with them and wanted me to convey these compliments and feed back. Please also convey my thanks to the Team, having Mum feel comfortable with this activity was really important to me as she is nearly 90 and in the process of moving house, an emotional and stressful business at any age...but the professionalism and care of you and your Team have made this a breeze for both of us! A thousand thanks for meeting a very high bar! Best wishes,
19/03/2014 - Aldeburgh to Hong Kong
1st move international's service has been top rate. At the same time as moving abroad a family member working for a large corporate also moved and had all the bells and whistles and consultants etc within the company looking after them. For my wife and I we did not - however the service of 1st move international made it feel like we had a team of dedicated people who really cared about us. The communication was exceptional and the price was great value - not the cheapest - but amazing value. I never was left in the dark and any questions were answered immediately. Their foreign partners were great and my shipment was delivered on time and not 1 item was broken. Thank you very much for everything
18/03/2014 - Alton to Jacksonville FL, USA

Hi Tessa, Just to update, and I am sure you are aware that we have received our shipment on Sunday 9 March. I would like to thank you and your team for the excellent and efficient service. I will be recommending your team to my colleagues in the future. Please convey my thanks to all who have been involved to make our move easy. Many thanks,
10/03/2014 - Longniddry to Houston TX, USA
Had a 'phone call last night from Craig in Houston. He has the desk in his home, it is completely undamaged and he is delighted. He was very impressed with the way it was protected with numerous layers of different types of materials. All of this due to 1st. Move International's professionalism, care and attention to detail. Needless to say I'm very relieved with its safe arrival and equally impressed with your firm. Thank you very much !
05/03/2014 - Merthyr Tydfil to Detroit MI, USA
Hello, Firstly, I would like to thank you and your staff for the excellent service I received. From obtaining quotes and being reassured by your staff I was able to have confidence in your process. I had not shipped furniture before so found the whole thing a bit daunting. Collection, timings and delivery at the least met your promises, and on times exceeded them. The cost was very reasonable as I had a very strict budget your system for calculating shipment costs was massively helpful in deciding what I should ship. Everything arrived extremely well packed and completely in tact (including a good amount of tableware and breakables). Overall, I was delighted with the whole experience and would fully recommend your service to others. Thanks so much!!
28/02/2014 - Glasgow to Melbourne, Australia
Goods arrived, I was pleased with the way my goods had been securely packed by yourselves. Everything arrived intact right down to the furniture for the dolls house!! My stay here in Melbourne is almost coming to an end and I'll be coming back - no doubt - to some horrible weather and leaving the sunshine behind for now. I'll be back again in September though. Thanks again for your services.
27/02/2014 - Brookwood to Austin TX, USA
We hope that you and all the team are doing well. All is well here, settling into our new home in Austin, Texas, with all our UK belongings safe and sound!! I would say we could not be more delighted with 1st Move International. From our first contact via an email through your website, through to the guys who collected our belongings, through to them being delivered – you and your team could not have been more professional, helpful and outstanding, if we had wanted them to be! Doing a move like this is daunting to start with, but your team just took the whole pressure off. We felt completely safe and looked after at every single point in the process. We really do think that you are all fantastic. We would not hesitate to tell anyone wanting to do an International move, that you should be their only choice. Please pass our sincere regards, admiration and thanks to the whole team.
25/02/2014 - London to Pretoria, South Africa
I have received my vehicle in perfect condition, delivered to my residence. 1st move International provided a very professional and hassle free service. Your clearing agents in Durban also delivered a very professional service. I will definitely recommend 1st Move International for future shipments. Thank you again. Kind Regards
21/02/2014 - Hereford to Durban, South Africa

05/02/2014 - High Wycombe to Sydney, Australia
Picked up the shipment yesterday so far so good no problems! Packed like fort knox and took me a while to break in but huge thanks for a simple move.
04/02/2014 - Chichester to Christchurch, New Zealand

03/02/2014 - London to Crown Point, Tobago
Hi Mark, just to let you know that all my stuff arrived safe and sound :-) Thanks very much for all your support. Everyone I've dealt with at your company has been great, and always helpful, which has made the move that much less of a hassle. Best regards,
01/02/2014 - Birmingham to Auckland, New Zealand
Hi from sunny Auckland! I'm e mailing you to let you know how delighted I am with your service and the care that was taken with my belongings. I received everything as I hoped I would and not a single item was damaged. Your packaging was second to none and the receiving company in Auckland were also very complimentary of your packaging. It was well worth the cost. I can't thank you all enough for doing such an amazing job! Thanks,
29/01/2014 - Jersey to Valletta, Malta
Very happy to give you some feedback. The service from start to finish was very effective. For someone who had never shipped a car the requirements were very clear and I especially liked having one point of contact - Andrew - for everything. Emails were always responded to promptly with clear details which was helpful when you're in the middle of an international move for everything, not just cars! My father dropped the car off at Southampton and I believe that all went very smoothly. At the Malta end the communication with Doreen was very good. The handover was quick. As you probably know our second vehicle is in transit to Malta at the moment. To this point the experience for the second car has been very good - easier infact since I've known what to do. Hopefully it will arrive without any issues. All up, I would definitely use 1st Move International again and recommend you to others. Have a good day!
28/01/2014 - London to Buenos Aires, Argentina
We moved to Buenos Aires (Argentina) from London at the end of 2013, everything went really well. We were quite worried about the whole move and with a lot of other things to think about when relocating, having 1st move making things simple made our life easier. The collection and customer support was great and everything arrived in the state they collected it in London. We booked x space, but when they packed everything into pallets, the size came down and they only charged for what we used. The customs people in Argentina made a couple of comments of how good the package of the pallets was as well. 100% recommended
21/01/2014 - Edlesborough to Heber Springs AR, USA
Hello Dave, Glad to say everything arrived in the exact order in which it was collected in the UK! From start to finish 1st Move International did a professional job. Well done! Gladly we would use your services again and recommend you to family and friends. It is likely we will make another move soon. Do you have a branch in the US who uses your methods? If so, I wish I had known them when we moved to UK last time. Every blessing
14/01/2014 - Portsmouth to Cape Town, South Africa
I have all my belongings. Your service was brilliant from start to finish. Thank you so much! I was especially impressed with how well everything was packed and found the advice and assistance offered by your team throughout the process very assuring and professional. I was also very impressed with how quickly I received my shipment before the December holidays here in Cape Town. Many thanks
10/01/2014 - Birmingham - Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Hi, Everything went smoothly thank you, Thanks
08/01/20104 - Bircotes to Brisbane, Australia
Hi Mark, This is a confirmation note that my shipment arrived in Brisbane, Australia, in 1st class condition - Many thanks to your excellent packing department employees. Overall, congratulations to all who participated in this delivery - I could not have had a better service I would highly recommend 1ST Move International to all persons looking for a extremely professional & personnel service. Happy New Year to all at 1ST Move International
20/12/2013 - Doncaster to Brisbane, Australia
Hi Andrew, Just thought I would drop a line and let you know that our motorhome arrived in Brisbane last Monday. We had no problems with customs and just a slight hiccup with quarantine as they felt that the motorhome was not clean enough!!! This is something we thought would happen anyway, so were quite prepared for their extra charge. We had the motorhome cleaned before we dropped it off to the docks in Southampton and after a three hour effort by one of the cleaning companies, it was just spotless. Never mind, the process went very quickly and we were able to drive it home today ready to now arrange for the Australian registration. We were so pleased to find that the motorhome arrived in the same condition we left it in, with no damage whatsoever. After hearing many horror stories, we were very relieved. Your agents were a great help getting things sorted this end for us. Many thanks Andrew to you and your team who helped us with the shipping of our motorhome to Australia. Everything went so sothly and we are very grateful to you. Merry Christmas to you all and best wishes for 2014. Cheers
T & S. Brown
19/12/2013 - Belper to North Goroka, Papua New Guniea
Hi Tessa, I'm just writing to thank you and your team for helping us with our move to PNG. Richard went down to Lae just over a week ago to collect the contents of our shipping container and we now have everything at home with us. We've unpacked all the boxes and were happy to find everything (with the exception of one pane of glass in a picture frame) had made the journey intact- very impressive! We have been very happy with the services of 1st Move Int'l and would recommend and use you in the future if needed. Please thank everyone who helped us with our move. Kind regards,
E & R.Cuthbert
18/12/2013 - London to Tucson AZ
Mark, Just wanted to send you an update. My stuff safely arrived and my parents ended up collecting at the Tucson depot. They commented on how well it was wrapped and that nothing was damaged. Many thanks for your assistance in the whole process. You will definitely be recommended by me to anyone moving to/from the UK. Regards,
03/12/2013 - Sheffield to Qormi, Malta
We were very pleased with all aspects of the service you provided. The collection and delivery services were undertaken efficiently & in a professional and helpful manner by your staff & those in Malta. Everything was packed exceptionally well and consequently arrived without any damage. Communication was excellent both via phone calls and emails. We were notified promptly when the goods arrived. Thank you. Regards
01/12/2013 - Leicester to Tauranga, New Zealand
We received all our belongings last week, all in one piece, nothing lost or damaged so we are very happy. Our car we got back yesterday. We have been extremely satisfied with your service. Customs were very good & advised me on how to clear our own things. So if any one asks it is very easy to clear your own effects & car and you dont actually need an agent although I think it is easier if you are using Tauranga as opposed to Auckland. If anyone needs any help with that please pass on my e-mail as you can save yourself money by doing it yourself. Thanks again
A & K. Skellett
29/11/2013 - Sutton to Houston TX, USA
I am happy with my experience with 1st Move Internationall. I will recommend it to my friend and use you myself in the future. In more details: quotation was prompt and easy to understand, all questions swiftly answered. Pick-up of items from my home - just as schduled, fast and professional. Invoice - along with quotation, no surprises. UK side - easy to communicate, all questions addressed. US agent - easy to communicate, all the process explained. Pick-up from US bonded warehouse (I did it myself) - easy, straight forward. No mess with paperwork at any stage. Shipment was received intact with no problem. In general: easy, clear, fair prices. Recommended! Well done! Thanks!
18/11/2013 - London to Phillipsburg Sint Maarten
Hi there, All my stuff arrived with minimal input, and no damage. That's the main thing, it was complicated stuff - a pool table to pull apart wasn't easy, I know! So... overall, pretty good really! I'd use you lot again. I need a motorbike moving to the US and back in about a year.
13/11/2013 - London to Bangkok, Thailand
Thank you for excellent work.
04/11/2013 - Horsham to Limassol, Cyprus
Dear Mark I am back in the UK and thinking about a further shipment to Cyprus but have not decided yet. I would like to ship some things from North Cheshire just outside Liverpool to Sydney in New South Wales for my sister. Regards
31/10/2013 - London to Perth, Australia
Goods received in perfect condition, packaging was fine, no problems with customs and the agent in Perth was helpful. Thanks
23/10/2013 – London to Monroe LA, USA
I am so glad I used 1st Move for my recent move from the UK to USA. From the initial phone call for information and a quote, to the 2 witty, funny and mega strong men that turned up fully loaded and armed with masses of bubble wrap and the ever so helpful Mark at the end of a phone line and on email: everyone went above and beyond the call of duty. I paid exactly what they quoted on my initial inquiry which was half the cost of what other companies had suggested. And above all they moved mountains and made miracles happened. Probably not listening correctly (a bad fault of mine!) I thought my things were turning up earlier than they were scheduled to. So I happily packed up the wedding dress and copious amounts of wedding bits and bobs only to then realise it was all due to arrive AFTER the wedding had taken place. No problem at all. Mark and the team all pulled together, fast tracked my things and from picking up my belongings on a Tuesday morning somehow got them on the boat leaving that Saturday. They then even turned up in Monroe BEFORE Mark thought it would be humanely possible too. I'm one happy girl. And my guests will be thrilled that I'll be walking down the aisle suitably attired and not wearing my birthday suit!!! Thanks to everyone at First Move for making every thing go smoothly. I'd highly recommend them and if I ever move again they'll be the people I'll use.
21/10/2013 – Ely to Johannesburg, South Africa
Hi Mark and hello from South Africa, Thank you for your email and your help moving my belongings - everything went really smoothly and well, couldnt think of anything you could do better. Both thumbs up and best regards,
02/10/2013 - Cannock to Haines City FL, USA
I just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for the excellent shipping service we received from yourselves. Our container arrived safe and sound. From the first telephone conversation with the company to the final delivery (what a great bunch of American guys they were.......emptied the container in just under an hour!) we received nothing but professionalism and great communication. I will highly endorse your company and would recommend First Move International to anyone relocating abroad.
24/09/2013 – Worle to Halifax, Canada
Hi Mark, Car got here all in one piece! It looked a little lost among the new B.M.W.s & Porsche's. No problems with the collection at the docks. I’ve also sent you a photo just outside the docks stoping for coffee & one in it's new home with the Porsche you shipped to Alberta a few years ago. Thanks for the great service.
11/08/2013 - Chepstow to Limassol
This company stands out from the rest. Their quote is fully inclusive and what they don't cover they tell you about and if you have any queries, they are answered immediately by any medium you choose (telephone/email/etc). They moved my Audi A5 from UK to Cyprus with no hassle at all and their price was very competitive with the rest. The process was easy and I felt fully looked after throughout the process. Explicit instructions were given at each stage about what was required until I dropped off the car at Southampton. At the Cyprus end their agent handled the complex and confusing import paperwork. All I had to do was turn up at the port and meet the agent, sign some forms, drink some coffee then drive away in my car. There was one minor issue at the Cyprus end about a piece of paperwork but 1st Move sorted it within minutes of my phone call. I fully recommend this company and will use them again. It is a very personal service and you feel like a valued customer. Thanks
02/08/2013 - Swindon to Chicago IL, USA
Dan, Mark, Tom, Thank you so much for your excellent service! I collected my shipment from the warehouse in Chicago yesterday. Everything went very smoothly and you took such meticulous care with packing! I was expecting a good job (I watched your video), but it really was fantastic. I was particularly impressed that you'd labelled and numbered each individual box, and put such a generous layer of bubble wrap and cardboard over the whole thing. I unpacked it all last night, and found everything was in perfect condition. You did a great job. Thank you so much! If you'd like to quote me on any of this, please feel free. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your services. Very best regards,
25/07/2013 - Newcastle-Under-Lyme to Bayview NSW, Australia
Hi Mark, I wanted to let you know the collection of my personal effects went very smoothly. I decided to clear the effects throught Customs myself and was pleasantly surprised how helpful Customs and your agent this end were. All good. I will certainly use you again for the remainder of my things next year. Regards
18/07/2013 - Aberfeldy to Thunder Bay, Canada
I'm contacting you to let you know that our household effects shipment arrived yesterday in great shape. Plenty comments from family and neighbours on the great quality of the wrapping. All went smoothly with the agent here and customs; good communication all round. Thanks again,
05/07/2013 - Nottingham to St Louis MO, USA
The service you supplied was everything and more that you stated it would be. The items arrived perfectly and securely wrapped, nothing was damaged and the time frame was as you expected. To say that I was not there in the UK when you collected my belongings and then 6 weeks or so later reunited with them was an amazing service. I would definitely recommend you to friends and family and if I decide this life in the US is not for me, I will definitely use you to return my belongings to the UK. Once again thank you for all your help, your service was outstanding!!
03/07/2013 - London to Doha, Qatar

I wanted to email you guys and say a big thank you for your service. I've been very happy with your level of service and with 1st move on the whole, our goods arrived safely and without any issues. If and when I need to ship internationally again I'll certainly be using you and would also recommend you to others. Many thanks
10/06/2013 - London to Fremantle, Australia
Have to say huge thanks to Graeme for all his help in getting my vehicle over from the UK. Having read up on the process before commencement it seemed to be quite daunting, but with his help and advice, it seemed to be unfounded as the whole import process went very smoothly. From the initial enquiry via the website, he took the time and effort to explain everything to me in detail, even answering the numerous questions which I had, and probably some random non pertinent ones too! It took a while for me to choose a shipper based on the initial questions I had, but his follow up emails were courteous and non intrusive and when I requested a call to discuss further, despite the time difference he called promptly at the time agreed. Once dockside, Andrew offered the same courteous service, he promptly answered questions which I had about the loading process and handled the mildly irate email I sent to him (I did apologise in a later email) regarding my vehicle being bumped to the next sailing, professionally and efficiently, he also answered the questions I had arising out of this incident promptly and clearly explaining how such incidents can occur. All in all, a very good experience and happy with the service, nothing was too much trouble and the manner in which initially Graeme, then Andrew dealt with things allayed any fears which I had. I have already recommended your company to some friends who are planning on making the move to Australia next year as they have 2 vehicles to bring over and I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone else who wishes to do the same.
06/06/2013 - Chester to Houston TX, USA
Thank you very much to you and the company for all your help with our move. I would recommend 1st Move to anyone that is looking for a company that will guide you through each step of your move with clear and detailed instructions, responds to any query extremely fast, and above all is honest and worth every penny.
03/06/2013 - Maidstone to Salem AR, USA
Huge huge thank you!!!! The agent this end has been brilliant, my contact was superb and sorted everything and has been professional and friendly. Even the chap who drove the container here was really helpful and friendly - the guys arrived and worked their socks off. Top top service by your company and although I haven't unpacked everything yet (wow how much packing material - brilliant) it looks fantastic, thank you so much. I will happily recommend your company to anyone looking to ship their furniture and belongings. Your guys who packed and moved me in the UK were fantastic and the service you have provided has been fantastic and helpful even when I've been a pain in the rear with my worrying you took away all of the stress with an international move. My thanks don't seem to do justice to the brilliant service you have provided - so huge thank you to you. With warmest regards
24/05/2013 - Langport to Washington DC, USA
I wanted to write and thank you and all the team at 1st Move for all your help. Tessa and Dave were especially friendly and helpful in answering all our questions - it's so nice to have a human voice on the other end of the 'phone when you have questions or queries. Everything arrived very much in one piece and thanks to your excellent packing system I think we saved a bit of cash too! I would certainly recommend you to others! Thanks
22/05/2013 - London to Halifax, Canada
My move back to Canada went really well and without any negative instances. I couldn't believe how fast it all happened. I will be moving my final lot of stuff later this year or early next year and will definitely use your services again and I would recommend you to others for sure. Thanks again. Kind Regards,
20/05/2013 - Middlewich to Dallas TX, USA

I just wanted to let you know that I received the shipment on Friday. Everything went smoothly and I appreciate your help with the move, it is amazing how involved it all is to get goods from point A to B. It was like Christmas on Friday finally seeing everything again and remembering things I had forgotten about. I also wanted to mention how good the wrapping of the larger items was. It will take me a long time to get into everything it is so well packed. Thanks again for all your help.
01/03/2013 - Bolton to St John NFL, Canada

She also said that she filled a bin with all the packaging! Thank you so much for your excellent service, news on when the shipment was actually sailing, for the updates until it sailed and thanks to the young man who came to our home and packed up all the items. He was so speedy and efficient We could not have wished for a better service.

I am pleased to report that our stuff made the trip in perfect condition. Thank you all ever so much for all your help. You were prompt and professional, and made what is normally a hectic process worry-free.
23/01/2013 - London to Vancouver, Canada
I have been reunited with all my belongings and was very happy with the service I received from your firm. I was impressed by the level of service at pickup and the way in which my shipment was packed, meaning everything arrived intact. I would happily use the service again and would certainly recommend you to anyone else moving goods from the UK.
23/01/2013 - Barnes to Marina Del Rey, USA
I have to say regarding your team and feedback that the entire process was very easy for me and that I can't say enough great things about your team and service. Specifically, your team always was proactive and communicated with me before I had to chase them for any information. The team was consistent with the communication and always stayed out in front of me and the information was always accurate and on time. The movers came in and were fast and professional and you just made the entire process easy, seamless and in top quality. I can't think you enough and would recommend you to anyone that needs to move. Regards
22/01/2013 - London to Boston, USA
My 1954 Ford Popular arrived on time and in fine condition. Clearing US Customs was a drawn out affair but nothing to do with your company. Shipit kept me totally informed and answered all of my question quickly and accurately. Thank you for a job well done. Regards,
22/01/2013 - London to Seattle, USA
I was re-united with my stuff on 11/01/13. There have been delays with ETA due to the bad weather and holidays. Happy ending anyway. Your service in UK was very good and I'd like to thank again Tessa, for her patience and her sense of humor! Regards,
17/01/2013 - London to Cape Town, South Africa
Thanks very much for the great performance by 1st Move International. The only little challenge we had, which was completely out of your control, was the ship was delayed in docking in Cape Town for a few days. Your Cape Town agent was great and we kept in touch with them, and all the goods were delivered when promised once the ship had docked. A big thank you to your whole team. Best Regards
15/01/2013 - London to Sydney, Australia
I have received my vehicle - thank you, it was in perfect condition. I had a great service with 1st Move, thought both Andrew and Graeme were fantastic, very supportive of my concerns, and responded to any questions l had. In particular, Graeme was extremely flexible with picking up my car, despite changing the pickup address twice. I really appreciated his support, more so as I was negotiating the services from Sydney, where I am now based. I will be very happy to use 1st Move International again and would recommend it as a service without reserve. I did check comments posted on a website regarding 1st Move's services, and frankly, found them to be very unfair and misleading. Indeed, I am happy for my feedback to be used to counteract them. All the best to you, and my kindest regards to both Graeme and Andrew. Yours Sincerely,
13/01/2013 - London to Sydney, Australia
We have received all our belongings, and the whole move has gone very smoothly. I would say that I was extremely happy with the service that you provided; the level of communication through the process was fantastic, and everyone that I have dealt with at 1st Move has been very friendly and helpful. All of our stuff was very well packed, and not a single item was damaged during transit. I would absolutely recommend your services to others should the opportunity arise. Thanks again.
07/01/2013 - London to Aubrey, TX
Happy new year to all of you! I arrived safe and sound in the US, although I am missing London very much. My belongings arrived on schedule and completely intact. Everything was delivered as promised! I am very happy with the service provided by both 1st Move International, and the shipping agent you contracted with in the US, Dove Shipping. Everyone was professional and there were no unanticipated or unreasonable costs. Also, I was impressed with the care taken with my belongings, and most important, with the customer service you provided--from the proactive emails and telephone contact, to pick up and delivery, to progress updates. I would not hesitate to recommend or use your services again!
07/01/2013 - Southampton - Sydney, Australia
I am very satisfied with the customer care I got from Autoshippers and will recommend your company to anyone that are looking to ship their vehicles overseas. What I was quoted, I was charged, no hidden extras for this or that. My car left the date if should have and arrived the time i should have. I cannot think of one little complain. One very happy customer!! Thank you for your assistance. Kind regards,
27/12/2012 - Reading to Baltimore MD.
Both cars arrived at their final destination in good order. Your service was excellent and I would recommend you to others regards
06/12/2012 - London to Auckland, NZ
I wanted to email you to say a very big thank you. Everything arrived safely and it is lovely to be reunited with things I hadn't seen for 6 years while it was all in storage in the UK. I have to say the service I received from 1st Move International was exemplary..from the very first phone call I received in response to my email. There was a real " can do " attitude from everyone I spoke to throughout the planning stages..nothing was ever too much trouble. They made a a process that i had been really dreading seem simple and straightforward. The men that came to the storage facility to take my stuff away to be packed did a great job too. The agent here was also incredibly helpful as well and again the process was well explained in terms of arrival date, various customs and MAF things. When the pallets arrived I could see that the packing of all the things was excellent..I had many paintings and not one was damaged in any way (and I think I can set up a bubble wrapping business with all the bubble wrap I have now!). There was only one thing that was damaged and that was something cheap and nothing to worry about so I am delighted. Please give my thanks to each and every one of the team who helped to make this experience a good one. I have already recommended you to someone else! Best wishes
28/11/2012 - Lutterworth to Long Beach, CA USA
I am Michael from Long Beach, Calif. Your company assisted me with the shipment of a 1964 Facel Vega from England to the US. I received the car today, in excellent order. I am writing to say thank you to each and everyone in your organization for making this such a smooth transaction. This was my first experience moving a car from overseas and needless to say, I was very anxious. I am delighted with your service and all the attention you gave me. I will certainly be using your company again and telling your story. Hoping to buy you a pint someday, I remain faithfully yours,
M.Canyon / E.Mavin
27/11/2012 - London to Perth, Australia
We've just received our 19 boxes, and as far as I know from the text my wife sent everything's OK and intact! :) A HUGE thanks you you and your team from us! The UK side was brilliant and we could not have expected more. Thanks again for your help this side of the water too! Kind regards
21/11/2012 - Haslemere to Boston, MA, USA
The move went very well and I will be using you to move the rest of my stuff next year. I will also be recommending you to a colleague who will be moving over shortly. Thanks and best regards
19/11/2012 - Swansea to Galveston, Texas, USA
We have had a lovely move and are settling in nicely to our new place in Galveston, Texas. We would like to thank you for your wonderful job wrapping, securing and shipping all our goods. Your exceptional customer service made the move less stressful. If another international move comes our way (which is always a possibility!) we will definitely be contact you again and will recommend your service to friends and co-workers.
15/11/2012 - London to Austin, TX, USA
Everything worked out great. There was a little confusion about delivery to our home when the driver called a week early to say he was at the house! Not a problem, it was a pleasant surprise to get it early. Cheers,
13/11/2012 - Southampton to Auckland, NZ
You will be pleased to know all went well with the shipment to NZ and I certainly would use your services again in the future. Cheers
13/11/2012 - Southampton to Auckland
I was very happy with the service from 1st Move International. When I was looking at shipping a vehicle (I was still in NZ at the time) I contacted your company and was extremely impressed with the level of service I received from you. You were extremely quick at sending me a quote and any query I had was answered by return. As it happened I was not able to secure a suitable vehicle whilst I was still in NZ, but during my short stay in UK, I did buy a vehicle and only had an hour to organise shipping, insurance etc. before close of business as I was leaving UK the next morning. You made the shipping transaction and ensuring that the dealer delivered the car to Southampton, a seamless operation and your communication during the whole process was excellent. Whilst I was still in NZ I did obtain other shipping quotes and it is fair to say that you were not the cheapest, however I went with you because of the prompt way you communicated with me and I have no hesitation in recommending your company to others (in fact I have done just that to a colleague who is considering doing the same thing as I have done) Kind regards
12/11/2012 - Witney, Oxfordshire to Calgary, Canada
My belongings arrived in good time and i have collected them and all were in the same order as i packed them in the uk. Your service was perfect i never felt like i was being pushed in to buying services i didnt need you were very good at returning my mails and answering any questions i had even when i had moved to a different time zone. Every one from the sales person to the guys who collected my stuff were friendly and helpful once my goods arrived this side the companies you chose to use were just as helpful and accommodating. I would certainly use your services again and would recommend you to my friends and family if they needed such a service. Thank you for all you help please pass my thanks to all who were involved in helping. Now living in canada and very happy.
02/11/2012 - London to New York, US
My belongings have arrived, all in one piece! I was very impressed with your service and would certainly recommend you to others - in fact my girlfriend is moving from Germany to the US at the moment and I recommended she use you.
31/10/2012 - Newcastle to Fremantle, Australia
Just to let you know that everything went well with the car removale and I would be more than happy to use your services again. Thanks again.
26/10/2012 - Middlesbrough to Fremantle, Australia
Service was good thanks, and at the most competitive cost - Andrew and Graham were helpful and knowledgeable Would recommended the service to friends or colleagues, for shipping anywhere Regards
16/10/2012 - Southampton to Limassol, Cyprus
I am so glad I used 1st Move International to ship my car from the UK to Cyprus. Everything just went to plan. The drop-off was painless and the recommended customs clearance agent at the Cyprus end was great. I have no hesitation in recommending your company to anybody. All the best,
14/10/2012 - Southampton to Muara, Brunei
Hello, It was outstanding services from your company and it was really smooth official side as well. Thaks for the everything that you have done for me. that munch for now see you again bye.
12/10/2012 - Huddersfield to Seabrook SC USA
I just had a small shipment, but was very happy with your service and the items were received undamaged due to the excellent packing system. Thank you.
08/10/2012 - Middlesex to Bangkok
Everything arrived intact - even our shipper in Bangkok was complimentary about the quality of your packaging. I would not hesitate to recomend your services. It is quite stressful to hand over all your belongings (some irreplaceable) for a 6000 mile journey, but the professionalism of your team was reassuring: the communications over the email from your office; the guys that picked up our items; and the superb wrapping on the pallets all added up to a great service.
01/10/2012 – Doncaster to Australia
Thanks for the service from you guys, this was a tricky move, but it was delivered here in the end. If need to do the same again in the future, I'll let you know. Cheers
18/09/2012 – Car from UK to Malaysia
I mainly dealt with Andrew and he patiently answered my questions and queries. The car collection service arranged by you was very good - the older driver collecting gave me faith that the car would reach Southampton in one piece! The car arrived in Port Klang in good order. Joseph Martin of Trinergy handled the customs clearance etc and also arranged short term storage for me. So, all in all, your service was very good and I would recommend your company to anyone wanting to ship a car to Malaysia.
10/09/2012 – Cumbria to New Zealand
All was well and the stuff arrived intact and undamaged. Clearance at this end went fine. Happy. Thanks. And we have lived in NZ for 15 years now, it was just some stuff from my deceased father's estate. Regards.
10/09/2012 – London to Canada
I would just like to say that you guys were wonderful! From the first phone call i made to you right thru to the way my goods were packed and received here in Canada was impeccable. Thank you to you and your team! A fab job all round! Best wishes,
10/09/2012 – UK to Malta
I'd like to take the opportunity to thank everyone at 1st Move International for their combined support and efficient service. Our new start in Malta is going well, thank you. I don't intend to move again, but I will certainly recommend your company to anyone else considering an overseas move. The company you referred me to here in Malta was equally professional and the furniture and possessions arrived on time and intact. The best part for me was knowing I could contact any of your team at any time with even the slightest question or concern. The personalised and friendly service you offer is priceless because it takes the stress out of a very emotional experience. Just knowing I didn't have to deal with any of the shipping paperwork was a huge relief! Thank you again and many successes for the company, Best wishes
10/09/2012 – UK to West Virginia, USA
Everything seemed to go very well. The shipment got here fine and I was very impressed with how everything was handled. Thanks!!
16/08/2012 – Cumbria to South Africa
All went brilliantly. I felt at all times that I had someone to call if needed and your service was really efficient. The difference was the personal service you give, by someone with a name, rather than just a corporate employee. I felt totally looked after. Feel free to quote me. Best wishes,
15/08/2012 – London to Vancouver, Canada
We were absolutely pleased with the service you and your team provided and really appreciated the speedy responses and making the process seem so easy and simple. I really liked being able to do a rough estimate on your online service and get a quote. Everything thing was wrapped really well and my husband said he was really happy with the team he dealt with on the day. Take care,
14/08/2012 – From Clevedon to Canada
Everything arrived as expected. Thank you for all your help. While moving stuff from one country to another is inevitably complicated, I think you made it all happen smoothly, and kept me well informed of progress. The packing was really excellent, I had some very delicate things and they were all fine. Overall a great service!
12/08/2012 – Moving from the UK to the USA
Hi all, Great job and everything arrived without any problems. You've been fantastic throughout the entire move process, and I would recommend you without hesitation to anyone doing an overseas move. Warm regards,
10/08/2012 – From the UK to Canada
Hi your service was great. please pass on my thanks to Andrew Denyard. very pleased. many thanks regards
10/08/2012 – From the UK to Auckland, Australia
I have got to say that we were extremely pleased with all aspects of our move. From the first contact I made with 1st Move International to the arrival of the goods in Auckland your service was exceptional. Every person I spoke to or emailed was very helpful and did what they said they would do! We had to delay the order for several months and yet we still felt that the firm accommodated us and was committed to giving us the best service, I congratulate you all, including the men who came to collect the goods who were friendly but very professional. My daughter is now re united with her goods and was really happy that they all arrived in excellent condition. Sincere Thanks
08/08/2012 – Moving from the UK to Toronto,Canada
Hi would just like to say how impressed I am with your company - my belongings arrived exactly when you said - I will not open package for 5 months or so but am sure it will be OK - it is a pleasure to deal with people who do what they say they will do - would recommend yourselves anytime- many thanks regards
06/08/2012 – Moving from the UK to Canada
Although I miss England terribly, I have to thank you and everyone on your staff for how effortlessly and perfectly the move was handled. You kept all your promises regarding dates and costs. My items were carefully wrapped and handled and arrived without any damage. All communication was clear, complete and timely. All correspondence and phone calls were polite and professional. Everyone I dealt with was great. I would recommend 1st Move International to anyone (and have). Cheers,
01/08/2012 – From Stepney to Wellington, New Zealand
We were very impressed with your service. You were really reassuring throughout all the chaos and stress of organising the shipping. You were always really helpful and patient when we had to keep asking the same questions and be sent the same forms. Everything was moved really professionally and suddenly everything was in your hands and we had sent it all off. As time passed towards us collecting it all again, we travelled the world and had a wonderful time. There was a dockers strike here in NZ and so there was a little delay, then of course all the MAF and customs to wade through. We eventually saw all our belongings in a warehouse in Wellington, to find everything beautifully packed and stored with several layers of protection. The manager at the storage asked who it was that had moved our stuff, because he was so impressed with the packing and was not the first time that he had dealt with you. In his opinion- you were the best out there and impressive protection and packing for our belongings. We have saved all the packaging for using to decorate the house and cover furniture, all the cardboard for mulching the garden, and the pallets have been burnt on the fire. So all in all- a big thank you for making such a stressful situation as painless as possible, and would not hesitate to recommend you to others. From Stepney to Wellington it has been an incredible journey.
26/07/2012 – Car from the UK to America
My car arrived safe and sound. I had a very good experience with your company. Thank you for your help.
23/07/2012 – Moving the Mills to Australia
The service that you guys provided from the first stage of getting a quote, right through to the help I received in Australia to ensure I completed all documentation correctly was absolutely amazing. I was quite worried to ship my belongings and memories that I had gathered from living in London for 4 yrs with fear that I would never see them again but with your whole teams support, service and understanding when I was probably asking the most silly questions, I felt extremely comfortable that my things were in safe hands. Also the price was extremely good for the service provided and a massive thanks to the boys who collected my things from my house and wrapped them so safely as nothing at all was harmed upon arrival. You will definitely be the first and only company I recommend for shipping and if I ever need to ship anything again, I will be calling you first. Once again, thank you so much for everything. Kind Regards,
22/06/2012 – From the UK to Australia
The shipment arrived in one piece which I was really pleased about as the contents had more sentimental than monetary value following the loss of both my parents. The packing material used was great and even the quarantine guy commented on the quality of the packing as we unopened it from the pallet. Every inch had been packed carefully which of course kept the cost down for me.
09/06/2012 – Moving from the UK to New Zealand
You guys were great and made everything very easy. The service was excellent both in the UK and once we got here in NZ. Everyone was very helpful and polite and went that little bit extra if needed. I would definitely use you again and would definitely recommend you to any friends who need to move overseas.
21/05/2012 – Wimbledon to Jamaica
I have to say that you exceeded our expectations with regard to your shipping services. I think we only had one broken wine glass, which was due to our poor packing. We didn't realise how much re-packing you had done, but we were very thankful that you had. The information you provided prior to the shipment and the courtesy of the staff was also first rate, even when I haggled you over the price. We will certainly recommend you to any of our friends who are planning on moving back.
01/05/2012 – From England to Belize
We collected our personal effects from Belize Port last Tuesday and once again we were very impressed with the packaging of our 3 pallets. We have now unpacked all our boxes and we are very pleased to inform you that everything arrived safely considering the very long voyage from England to Belize (it takes 6 weeks). Please rest assured we will certainly recommend 1st International to everyone who may be looking to ship their goods overseas. We have settled in nicely now and the weather is hot & sunny 95F in the shade. Many thanks once again to all your staff, your service is outstanding. Best regards,
A & H Leason
29/04/2012 – From the UK to Bangalore, India
Hope you are well. I thought I will take a moment to let you know that my shipment has arrived in India and to its final destination (Bangalore) safe and sound and in good shape! The packing was excellent I should say. The cargo has been cleared with minimum hassle! Many thanks to you and your team for providing excellent quality of service right from the time I got in touch with your office. That seems long now. I will not hesitate to recommend 1st Move to anyone who may be looking for a similar service! All the very best to you. Best wishes

Regards,
26/01/2012 – Moving Ware to USA Boston
Just want to say thanks for your help and efficiency in shipping my personal effects to Boston from the UK. I unpacked all the goods yesterday and they were very well wrapped indeed – this is my fifth international move and your guys did an excellent job of not only securely packing delicate objects but also using the space efficiently to minimise excess bulk. It was a smooth operation from start to finish.
12/1/2012 – 3 Shipments Moving London to Canada – Montreal
I have now used 1st Move to ship my personal belongings to Canada for the third time (surely a record of some sort!) Service was as usual cost-effective, efficient and friendly. Particularly impressed this time as had to organize from abroad. Everything arrived amazingly packed and intact. Highly, highly recommended!
22/12/2011 – Moving Swindon to New Zealand – Gisborne
We are living in New Zealand and needed to ship some items that we purchased on line in the UK. 1st move international took a lot of stress out of the process and ensured our items arrived, at the stated time, intact and undamaged. We were kept informed at every stage of the process and felt very comfortable with the information provided. The competative pricing also meant that it was cost effective to personnally import new goods from the UK. I would highly recommend this company. Thanks to all the team at 1st move.
08/12/2011 – Moving Bath to Australia – Melbourne
1st Move International did a great job for my relatively small lot of family heirlooms, furniture, clocks etc. Everything went very smoothly indeed. They were very helpful with advice on how to pack different items. I felt they tried to keep costs down for me, rather than attempt to push me to pay for extras, such as insurance that wouldn’t have met my needs. I haven’t yet opened all my parcels, but so far all is intact. I would certainly recommend their services to others, and would use them again
28/10/2011 – Moving London to Malta
- Qawra I would like to thank 1st Move International for shipping all my belongings to Malta. From the first point of contact their professionalism was outstanding. All my belongings was packed so well that there was no damage. I will certainly recommend 1st Move International to anyone who are thinking of moving abroad. Once again thank you.
26/10/2011 – BMW to Sydney
I used 1st Move International to ship my BMW 320 from the UK to Sydney and I was very impressed with the service provided. It was total peace of mind which was a relief when making such a big move and hundreds of other things to think about. I would use them again and highly recommend them.

23/09/2011 – Moving Farnham to Canada – Vancouver
I have used 1st Move to ship my things from Uk to Canada. Their service was fantastic and the packing skills impressive.

I would definitely recommend 1st Move to anyone considering a move overseas.
23/08/2011 – Moving Exeter to Canada – Orangeville

03/08/2011 – 2 Range Rovers to Hong Kong
I have now used 1st Move International twice in the last year. Both times to ship my 2 Range Rovers from UK to Hong Kong. I have received nothing but exceptional service! ALL companies could learn from them. To arrange the booking was a simple email followed by phone call back to me to confirm, and the next time I hear from them, they are collecting my car from home! I was notified that it had been shipped and was supplied all the documentation via email. And in HK, everything was ready for me when I arrived! Absolutely stunning customer service, and I will 100% be using them again next year. Their prices are competitive too!Rest assured and have no doubts that you will receive nothing but brilliant service from them. A big big thank you to the team there!
26/07/2011 – Moving London to Korea – Seoul
I have used 1st move International for the shipping of my personal belongings from London to Seoul in Korea. Everything arrived on the exact day and I have been very impressed by the kindness and the professionalism of the staf. All the contacts were done via email (and phone for the last details) and every time I got a quick answer to all my questions. Being assign abroad with a short noticed (usual thing from my company) I picked up 1st international on the Net without having any reference. I must admit that I was a bit (very?) stressed to give them all I have without knowing them but now I can tell you that it was the smoothest moving I ever had! All my stuff arrived
20/07/2011 – Moving London to South Africa – Cape Town
Thank you so much for everything. Our “life” arrived in perfect order. Everything was packed perfectly. We are very happy. We would also like to thank you for your understanding and patience. Our move has been very stressful and receiving everything in excellent condition just made it that little bit easier. Once again thank you. All the best for the future Regards

12/07/2011 – Porsche 911 Hilton to USA
We feel as if 1st International Movers are close friends. Our relationship began almost 2 years ago when we decided to ship our beloved 1986 Porsche 911 to the U.S. To make a long story short, 1st Inter. Movers were there for us every step of the way, patiently holding our hands through the shipping process. The car was newly refurbished and we were concerned that the trip would mar the new paint. We were pleasantly surprised when we picked it up in pristine condition. I would highly recommend them for shipping any vehicle of any value, they know the steps needed and patiently help you along the way. The cost was well below expected, even with the over land delivery to Southhampton. Special thanks to Andrew Denyard for replying cheerfully to every email and phone call.

12/07/2011 – Moving Colchester to South Africa – Johannesburg
Dear 1st Move International Team. I recently relocated back to South Africa. My decision to utilize your company was based on efficiency, professionalism and extreme promptness from all staff concerned whilst enquiring about the shipment. The personal affects were collected from my home in the UK without any delay and the goods arrived in South Africa on the precise due date originally quoted. Every single aspect of the manner in which the pallet was shrink wrapped and secured, has proved to me that 1st Move International is far superior to their opposition. Well done and once again thank you to one and all. Kind Regards

12/07/2011 – Moving Brampton to UAE – Dubai
I also found 1st Move International by doing an internet search. I sent several enquiries to the various companies I found and 1st Move responded almost immediately with a positive reply. From then on the experience continued to be stress free and extremely professional. All my items arrived without a scratch. The way in which everything was palletised was fantastic. I wouldn’t hestitate to recommend 1st Move. They were easy to deal with from start
05/07/2011 – Moving Manchester to USA – San Francisco
I found 1st Move International on the internet after being faced with numerous companies. I liked the way the pallets were packed as shown on the video clip, and the initial communication. I found everyone I spoke with, including Tessa and her team, Dave and the pleasant gent who collected my goods, to be polite and professional. The quote for shipping my goods to California were less than I expected, and the time given until arrival was less than I expected too. I packed my goods myself, and I was amazed at how they got all my stuff onto two pallets, thus saving me a lot a of money. My goods arrived a week earlier than quoted, but I was delayed in getting them only due to US Customs wanting to examine the container further. It wasn’t a major issue. I would certainly recommend 1st Move International to anyone wishing to use the services of a professional shipping company. Thank you!

Hi Tessa, We would like to thank your company for doing an excellent job of shipping our belongings to Brazil, everything was how I had packed it, just one broken glass (down to my bad packing). I’m originally from Bristol and mainly chose 1st Move (based in Avonmouth) for convenience and I was fortunate they turned out to be first class professionals. Thanks again.

I used 1st Move International to ship my goods to Toronto last month and I was delighted with the service I received from both pick up through to collection here. My shipment arrived 2 weeks ahead of schedule and in perfect condition which was absolutely fantastic! I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending their services – they were brilliant! Their packing technique onto the pallets is top notch – no wonder my belongings arrived in perfect condition! I’m so happy to have my belongings with me in my new home in Toronto. Thanks Team at 1st Move!

Many thanks for a fantastic service. A few problems on our arrival in Brunei – nothing to do with 1st International – but the staff we’re very accommodating to the issues we had. Communication was good throughout, from the quote to the sending of our belongings and settling the contract. Our belongings were excellently packed, everything arrived in huge shrink wrapped blocks just like the video on the website. Like anyone, we were overjoyed to finally receive our belongings, but also happy that 1st Move International dealt with it from the start. Would gladly use again!

I was happy with the service, moving my car from Scotland to Australia. It came through without a scratch, the guys and girls were prompt in responding to questions and requests. All in, a good service.

The team organising my move were all polite, friendly but professional, and made a daunting task of moving to foreign parts much less complicated than expected. A highly recommended company.

I was extremely pleased with the service I received from 1st Move International from start to finish. From the first contact I was given excellent help and advice along the way by everyone in the office. When my goods arrived at the final destination, the driver and loaders all commented that if every company shipped in this manner there would be far less damage. I can’t say enough about the excellent way in which my goods were secured on the pallets and delivered safely with no damage.
09/02/2011 – Moving Dawlish – to USA Frederick
Although there were some difficult communication issues once our items arrived in the US from the UK between myself and the subcontractor (DGS Logistics and OST), First Move has graciously resolved the matter. The packing job was terrific! Ample layers of carboard, bubble wrap, and shrink wrap were used to secure our personal belongings. We were very relieved and satisfied that not a single item was disrupted or broken in transit.

Dear Tessa, I would like to thank you and your colleagues from 1st International (Joanna Gwinnell, Dave Griffiths, Dave Craddock and those two men who came to my place to pick up my stuff) for the superb service of moving my personal effects from the UK to Australia. The packing and handling was even better than as shown on the web page. I would recommend your service to anyone without any hesitation. Kind Regards,

I would highly recommend 1st Move International. I was shipping personal belongings from the UK to my new home in the USA. My wife found 1st Move on the web and they were incredibly helpful from the word go. A visit to their offices to pick up some boxes (we were working on limited time) found us having a run through of how they packed everything, as well as being helped to get the forms filled out. About two and half/three months later I was picking up the not small package in America. Everything was beautifully packed, and absolutely nothing was broken (and there were some fragile things in there). I really appreciate the care, time and professionalism that 1st Move showed, not only in getting everything to the US West Coast, but also how they took any complexity out of the process. Thank you!
08/01/2011 – Moving Manchester to Trnidad
Extremely professional service! I recently shipped 2.0 cubic metres of personal effects from the UK to Trinidad. I appreciated the very prompt and courteous response to emails, addressing my many concerns and queries. I was thoroughly guided through the entire process with clear instructions and options available to me at every stage – from the request for quotation to post shipment. I am a totally satisfied customer and I am certainly elated that I selected 1st Move International to handle my business. Thank you 1st Move International
