Our experienced teams have done this thousand of times and will ensure your items are safely stowed. The supervisor will then go round the house with you to ensure everything required has been packed and ask you to sign the packing list. The container will then be sealed and transported to the dock. Dock formalities are different in each country and customs officers may ask to inspect your goods. If the container seal is removed our team will be there to supervise the inspection and re-seal your container. Once the planned shipping vessel arrives in port your container will be loaded and sent on its way. Transit times vary according to the location and route taken by the vessel. Our team can track the progress of your container and advise the estimated time of arrival. On arrival your container will be offloaded and again there will be formalities at the dock. You will need to have supplied the necessary documents for the clearance of your shipment. Each county has its own regulations but common requirements include:



Letter of introduction from your employer

Declaration of contents and value for customs purposes

Once your shipment has cleared customs is it loaded onto a lorry for delivery to your residence. Your destination agent will arrange a time and date with you. The unpacking team will arrive with your container and break the seal in your presence. Each box will then be called out of the container and checked off against the list prepared at origin. Your goods will be unpacked and positioned in your new home. The team will assist you with simple rebuilding for items such as beds. You may request the services of a handyman for additional complicated construction or building of furniture. The team will remove the debris and once everything is finished will ask you to complete a feedback form and sign a receipt.
