Living in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is an island nation located south-east off the southern tip of India. It is part of the Commonwealth. The general landscape of Sri Lanka is rugged and gets increasingly mountainous towards the centre of the island, eventually climaxing with the peak of Pidurutalagala which stands over 2,500 metres tall. The country also has a large amount water-based natural features, including more than 100 rivers and 40 lagoons. The island generally has a tropical climate. It is also the most biodiverse country in all of Asia, and one in five of the mammals on the island is not found anywhere else in the world. Sri Lanka has a diverse range of exports; the largest proportion is clothing, but tea, rubber tires, and precious gems including diamonds also contribute. The service sector is the main part of the Sri Lankan economy, and much of this will be related to the large tourism industry on the island. 7 out of 10 Sri Lankans are Buddhist, and probably has the longest history on the island of any religion. Culturally, festivals of various religions are celebrated by their respective followers, and religious groups exist in harmony. The country is most successful from a sporting perspective in cricket, having won the Cricket World Cup in 1996.

What are the shipping methods for removals from the UK to Sri Lanka?
Removals to Sri Lanka via Air Freight
If you need your belongings in Sri Lanka in a hurry, airfreight is the quickest transit method to move your possessions internationally. Removals via air freight are highly convenient, but this does come with a higher price tag. Your quote for Sri Lanka Removals is calculated based on the weight of your consignment, meaning it is not so economical for larger loads such as an entire home.
If you are only sending a one bedroom flat, some boxes of clothes or a few items of furniture to Sri Lanka but you require them urgently, air freight is a convenient transport method. Many Movecorp customers will make use of our air freight to Sri Lanka service cooperatively with another method of transportation. Such as sending a small number of items they need as a priority via air freight and everything else they can send via sea freight to cut costs.
Another factor that might influence the cost of your Removals to Sri Lanka via air freight is what happens with your goods upon their arrival in Sri Lanka. You can choose to collect your goods at the airport yourself, or you can request that diligent moving teams deliver your goods to the kerbside of your new home.
Removals to Sri Lanka via Sea Freight
For Removals to Sri Lanka, sea freight is one of the most favoured transport methods due to its cost-effectiveness and ease for our clients. Removals to Sri Lanka via sea freight can sometimes be a slow process, therefore we advise that you allow ample time for your delivery.
Shared container load is the ideal Removals to Sri Lanka choice if you have a small consignment such as a one bedroom flat, a studio apartment or a small office space. All of your goods and furnishings will be wrapped, packed and loaded onto a shared shipping container to Sri Lanka and you will only pay for the space this baggage occupies.
Dedicated container load is the recommended Sri Lanka Removals method if you are sending an entire home load or a large commercial office space. You will pay to receive the sole use of a 20ft or 40ft shipping container. A 20ft container will fit a three-bedroom home comfortably and 40ft is sufficient space if you want to send a vehicle amongst other goods.
Owing to our partnership with a number of global removals organisations, your goods will be delivered to the destination of your choice in Sri Lanka, by a team of movers that are committed to delivering a premium service.
