At Simpsons we offer a variety of overseas removal and shipping services to meet your needs. Do not worry if you are unsure about which is most suitable for you as our advisers will be happy to talk you through the different options.
For full household removal of a 3 or 4 bedroom house we would usually recommend a full shipping container for your sole use. These usually come in two sizes –20 and 40 ft.
We will pack the container at your house and it will be secured and customs sealed before heading off to the port.
For smaller moves with furniture, boxes and other items, the most cost effective option is our shared container shipping service, sometimes called part load. In this case, we pack your belongings at your home and take them to one of our depots where they will be loaded into a shipping container with other customers belongings heading for the same part of Philippines.
This is a cheap option for removals to Philippines as the shipping costs are shared proportionally.
For small moves to Philippines we recommend our box and bag shipping service. This is the cheapest way to move your belongings to Philippines. We provide you with export quality cartons / boxes and packing materials.
We then collect your packed boxes and transport them to Philippines by air or sea freight depending on your preference and budget.
The cost of removals to the Philippines obviously varies greatly depending on the quantity you are taking and where in the Philippines you are moving to. The good news is that, as so many people move from the UK to the Philippines, the cost of removals is surprisingly cheap – especially in areas around the big cities such as Manila, Quezon City, Davao City, Digos City and Bayugan City
The cheapest removals to the Philippines are by sea and costs per cubic feet decrease significantly as volume increases. You’ll certainly find that it is a lot cheaper to ship your furniture and other items than to replace them all when you arrive in the Philippines.
Removals to Philippines usually take 6-8 weeks for our full container service.
Removals to Philippines will take up to 8-12 weeks for our part load (groupage) service.
These shipping times are for delivery to port, you will need to allow additional time for customs clearance on arrival in Philippines.
We would recommend taking out Shipment Protection Cover for peace of mind whilst your belongings are on their journey.
Whilst we have expert packers who specialise in international removals and use accredited shipping lines who take special care of personal shipping containers, we cannot control every eventuality.
Just as you will likely have home contents insurance in the UK and travel insurance for your family, we recommend you discuss with your Move Manager the available options for protecting your belongings whist they are in transit.
Moving furniture to the Philippines from the UK needs far more care and attention than for a domestic removal. Each item is carefully packed using export wrapping before being loaded into the shipping container.
You can take all kinds of furniture to Philippines including sofas, chairs, tables, cupboards as well as white goods such as washing machines and fridge freezers.
The Philippines drive on the right side of the road, however, it could be well worth your while taking your car with you to Philippines – especially if it’s a new, luxury or classic model.
It is often cost effective to send your car in the same shipping container as your house removal so that everything arrives at the same time.
There are some import requirements you need to be aware of before you ship your car to Philippines. We suggest you contact our team to discuss options and the shipping process.
Although Simpsons will take care of all the details they can for you, this convenient checklist will make preparing for the move as simple and worry free as possible.
Moving out: Before the removal men arrive, be clear in what they are contracted to do and what you are expected to do. If in doubt, ask the surveyor or a member of our staff. Ordinarily, both householder and the removal men have fairly defined responsibilities (though a measure of flexibility on both sides is of course desirable)
Children: Children, who are naturally curious and can easily get in the way, may potentially be injured. The younger ones are best left with a neighbour or friend until it is time to leave.
Swings/Climbing frames: Generally dismantling these is one job you will do yourself, but be careful not to lose the bolts. If you wish us to arrange dismantling please discuss this with our surveyor
Garage/Shed: Tie together garden tools, and prepare items to be lifted straight onto the vehicle.
Self assembly furniture: If you have any furniture of the home assembly type particularly if made of chipboard, please note that we recommend dismantling units before the move, as the joints are seldom strong enough to survive even careful handling if the furniture is moved whilst still assembled.
Washing machines: Secure your washing machine drum, and disconnect from water supply and electric.
Books: Books are very heavy, use our book cartons as they are smaller and easier to manage.
China & glass: Wrap each item individually in packing paper or bubble wrap, packing the heavier items first with lighter pieces on top. Remember that plates and dishes are packed vertically and not laid flat.
Moving in: Make sure that you (or some other responsible person) is on hand to admit the removal men. If no-one is there and a reasonable waiting time expires, you could find yourself landed with storage and re-delivery charges. Enquire how long the vehicle will wait should you be inadvertently delayed on the way. It can also save time and confusion if you stand at the entrance and specify the location of each item as it is carried in.
Helping the move along: If you follow the guidelines suggested on this page you will find the removal men themselves responding to your good sense with extra efficiency and relaxed good humour. You can also help the move along by remembering to pack the kettle last. A cup of tea all round is a gesture always much appreciated.
Tipping: There is, of course, no obligation to tip the men, but, as with all personal services, people like to reward extra attention, willing good humour or a job well done. If you feel that a reward has been earned, the driver or packer in charge will distribute any gratuity given amongst the crew.
