What are the Methods for Sending Furniture to the UK?
Air Road Sea
Shipping-furniture to the UK via Air Freight
If you need your belongings in the UK in a hurry, airfreight is the quickest transit method to move your possessions internationally. Shipping-furniture via air freight are highly convenient, but this does come with a higher price tag. Your quote for the UK Shipping-furniture 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 the UK but you require them urgently, air freight is a convenient transport method. Many Movecorp customers will make use of our air freight to the UK 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 Shipping-furniture to the UK via air freight is what happens with your goods upon their arrival in the UK. 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.
Shipping-furniture to the UK via Road Freight
Road freight is one of our most popular transit methods, in particular for Shipping-furniture to the UK. Road freight is a faster option than sea freight, far more economical than air freight and it can be used for consignments of all sizes. Whether you need to send a few boxes, bulky furniture pieces or your whole home to the UK - road freight is suitable.
There are two road freight options for Shipping-furniture to the UK, a shared service or dedicated service to suit your needs. Our shared service provides flexibility to choose a collection window to suit you. However, because you will be sharing a moving van, your Shipping-furniture to the UK will not begin its journey until the van is full. This is a cost-effective option as you will only pay for the space your goods consume.
Our dedicated service gives you total freedom to choose your exact move date and time and you will pay for and receive a sole use removals truck to fill how you wish. This is a common road freight method for those moving larger homes, furniture items, vehicles and office spaces.
Our hard work and dedication means we are now proud partners of a number of worldwide shipping and removals organisations. Therefore, when you choose road freight for Shipping-furniture to the UK, you will receive the same attentive and superior service as you would in the UK.
Shipping-furniture to the UK via Sea Freight
For Shipping-furniture to the UK, sea freight is one of the most favoured transport methods due to its cost-effectiveness and ease for our clients. Shipping-furniture to the UK 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 Shipping-furniture to the UK 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 the UK and you will only pay for the space this baggage occupies.
Dedicated container load is the recommended the UK Shipping-furniture 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.
