You can be reassured that your belongings will be handled directly by Andrew Porter Ltd's expert teams from the time they are collected from your home to when they are delivered to your new home in Europe, as we never use sub-contractors to deliver any leg of our European removals.
We have long-standing relationships with major shipping lines and arrange regular transportations across Europe. There are different options available with our European removals services to suit your individual requirements and budget.
If you choose a groupage option for your European removals we will source the most cost-effective shipping arrangement for you, within a five day window of your desired date. Your belongings will be transported in a shared vehicle along with other people's goods going to the same destination.
If you have a significant amount of belongings to ship to Europe, you can exclusively use a dedicated vehicle, with a capacity of between 30 cubic m and 90 cubic m, which will be sealed before it leaves your property and taken directly to your new home in Europe. This service is more costly than the groupage option, but faster and allows you to specify your required shipping day.
Contact a member of the Andrew Porter Ltd team if you have any specific enquiries about shipping options.
Andrew Porter Ltd will take care of all relevant paperwork and customs clearance. Customs clearance can sometimes be slow, especially if customs decide to inspect your shipment. This will usually not only result in delays, but also customs may charge you for services such as X-ray, cleaning, inspection, quarantine fees and more. These charges are unpredictable and the normal process is for these to be paid by you locally before customs will release your goods.
