Shipping Personal Effects By Sea Freight

For personal shippers, our offering starts from a simple ‘depot-to-depot‘ option through to a full household removal – or anything in between. We can supply free boxes, tape and bubble wrap for small shipments and can arrange for these to be packed for you if preferable. Depending on your budget and circumstances, we may choose our full-load or part-load sea freight services. All personal shipments are fully customs cleared by our local partners overseas. Whether you are sending one or two boxes or a full household by sea, give us a call on +44 (0) 208-979-6054 or complete the sea freight quote request form below.

Full Load Sea Freight (FCL)

We have a weekly schedule for our FCL service which provides a dedicated sea container option with vessels departing weekly. You can load directly at your premises and then the container is transported directly to the port for immediate sea freight shipping. Alternatively, you can deliver your goods directly to our warehouse for loading, or our one of our specialist packing teams can visit your premises to load on your behalf.

Part Load Sea Freight (LCL)

Do not worry if you do not have enough load for a full container. Our part-load service allows you to ship goods within a shared shipping container. This is ideal for the light-packers and you will only need to pay for the space your items take up in the container. We can collect directly from your premises and load into a container with other shipments for the same. We work with the largest shipping lines in the industry to ensure weekly departures and the cheapest sea freight rates guaranteed.
