Range of Services Offered Provided in Your Overseas Move from London
When you’re ready to make the significant leap to live abroad, transferring your possessions can seem stressful. That’s the moment Simpsons International Removals rises to the occasion.
We recognise the unique demands of each move and provide a range of suitable freight alternatives. Should speed be a priority, our air freight service is swift and efficient. For bulkier consignments, such as furniture removals, opting for sea freight can offer sizeable savings, though it takes longer. For relocations within the same continent, road freight is accessible and offers a cost-effective and adaptable option.
To enhance your moving experience, we assign a dedicated move manager to oversee your process. They will act as your constant point of communication, helping you navigate the paperwork and customs procedures.

International Removals FAQ Guide & Key Information
International removals from London are not one-size-fits-all and can vary significantly based on your target destination. Factors such as distance and the shipping service you choose will influence the process and cost.
Additionally, the amount of personal effects and household items you intend to relocate plays a critical role. To ensure you receive the most accurate estimate, take advantage of our comprehensive home or video survey option.
We offer a range of removal options depending on your budget. This includes economy part load road freight or shared shipping container, dedicated road freight or full container load by sea or express air freight for small and urgent moves.
Use our online cost calculator to get an initial price or for a more accurate estimate, we highly recommend booking a home or video survey to get a more formal quote for the cost of your move.
Remember our removal quotes are for a comprehensive door-to-door service including packing and standard customs clearance. Our quote does not include customs fees and duties which may be payable to local authorities on arrival.
The speed of your overseas relocation from London hinges significantly on your destination. Shipping times can vary greatly, whether you’re moving to a bustling European city or a remote corner of another continent.
For European moves, it can take anything from 1-4 weeks depending on destination and type of move. Our overseas moves on average take anything from 6-12 weeks depending on the destination.
If speed is a priority, opting for a dedicated container service will expedite your move. This service allocates a shipping container exclusively for your use, allowing for a direct journey to your new location without the delays of consolidating shipments.
Conversely, a part load or shared container service might take longer, as it involves combining your goods with those of other customers. However, it is more cost-effective compared to a dedicated container shipping service.
As one of the leading international removal companies, we believe that packing is essential in the move. Our expert packing teams excel in export wrapping your furniture and efficiently packing boxes to ensure their safe arrival in flawless condition. Our highly trained packing crews specialise in packing for overseas moves and have years of experience.
We offer a range of export quality double-walled boxes of different sizes including tea cartons, book cartons, and bike cartons. Other packing materials include blanket wrap, flow pack, bubble wrap and secure packing tape.
We can also provide bespoke custom wood cases and crates for delicate and special items that need additional protection. Our service also includes specialised antique packing, ensuring these valuable items are meticulously protected.
With our extensive experience in managing delicate and fragile items, we assure that every piece, from everyday furniture to precious antiques, receives the highest level of care and professional handling throughout the moving process.
We provide a range of storage services for your belongings if you moving abroad. We have storage facilities across the UK and can also store your goods until you are ready to receive them.
We have highly secure warehouses and can offer a range of flexible storage solutions depending on your needs including short term and longer term storage.
Choosing road freight for European removals is ideal for those who want a good balance of cost-effectiveness and speed. This method ensures your belongings are moved efficiently by land, offering a quick and economical solution. With road freight, you have the option of a dedicated or part load service.
In the full load service, your items are transported in a dedicated road train, which is a bit more costly. On the other hand, the part load service allows your goods to share space in a road train with items from other customers, making it more budget-friendly.
We cover popular European destinations like Spain, Portugal, Singapore, and Greece with our removal services. Our expertise extends to numerous other locations, ensuring you receive top-notch service no matter your destination.
Choosing the optimal method to relocate your household items hinges on two pivotal factors: your budget and the urgency of your shipment’s arrival at your new residence.
Should speed be your paramount concern, particularly for urgent or time-sensitive moves, our air freight service is unparalleled. It ensures the quickest transport of your possessions, delivering your boxes to your destination in the fastest possible time frame.
On the other hand, if budgetary considerations take precedence and you seek a balance between efficiency and economy for shipping larger items such as furniture, our sea freight service is the recommended route.
For relocations within the European landscape, our road freight option emerges as a highly economical choice. Each transport strategy is crafted to cater to different priorities.
