Careful packing is the secret of a successful overseas move: there can be no compromise. Britannia’s experienced staff will pack everything for you, you will not be expected to do any of the work yourself.

Text Box: Moving Overseas

When packing begins you will be amazed how much care and attention to detail is necessary. The team will wrap every piece of furniture carefully using high quality materials. They pack small items, books and CD collections into specially designed export cartons; hanging clothes into portable wardrobes; pictures and mirrors individually; and give very special attention to china and glassware.

Particularly vulnerable items can be packed into their own purpose built timber cases. After packing the foreman will provide you with a complete inventory as your receipt. Only when you are completely satisfied will the shipment leave your home and begin its journey.

Britannia’s experienced staff will choose the most appropriate route for your shipment. The routing will consider the cost, timing and availability of services to match your own requirements.


If you have some urgent items: computers for work, extra clothing, baby equipment, etc, you may choose to send them by air. This can be collected with your main shipment, or separately if you wish. Britannia, will organise your airfreight through scheduled or consolidated services, and make sure that it is ready when you first arrive, just when you need it most.
