International Removals to the USA from the UK

Removal Service To USA

Simpsons International Removals is a leading removal company, offering you a comprehensive range of services if you are looking to move your belongings to USA, each tailored to meet different needs and budgets.

Sea Freight Service – Container Shipping

For those who might be moving larger quantities of goods or seeking an even more cost-effective solution, sea freight services are also available. Whether that’s a full-load 20ft or 40ft container for larger moves or a part-load container for smaller quantities, sea freight is known for its economic value, especially for substantial moves, and while it may take longer than road transport, it offers a reliable and cost-effective solution for transporting your goods over longer distances.

Air Freight Service – For Small Moves

For the quickest transportation of your belongings to USA, air freight is the recommended option. This express courier service is ideal for smaller moves, such as sending boxes or luggage. Air freight stands out for its speed, making it the perfect choice for those who need their items to arrive in USA as quickly as possible. However, it is important to note that while air freight is the fastest method, it is generally more expensive than road or sea freight and is best suited for larger volumes of goods.

Full Household Overseas Removal Service

For full household removal of a 3 or 4-bedroom house we would usually recommend a full 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.

Shared Container (Part Load) Overseas Removal Service

For smaller moves with furniture, boxes and other items, the most cost-effective option is our shared container service, sometimes called part load.

This is a cheap option for removals to America as the costs are shared proportionally.

Furniture removals UK to USA

Moving furniture to USA from the UK needs far more care and attention than for a domestic removal. Each item is carefully packed by our removalists using export wrapping before being loaded into the container.

You can take all kinds of furniture to the United States including sofas, chairs, tables, cupboards and beds.

There are a variety of methods to send your car to the United States. For example in a container or by a roll-on-roll-off service.

It is often cost-effective to send your car in the same 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 send your car to USA. We suggest you contact our team to discuss options..

International Removal Insurance for your Move to USA

We would recommend taking out the shipment Protection Cover for peace of mind whilst your belongings are on their journey.

Whilst we have expert movers and packers who specialise in international removals and use accredited shipping lines that 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.

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.
