Container Shipping

CONTAINER SHIPPING - 20ft, 40ft, 40’ high cube Container shipping.

Container shipping

Imove specialise in providing cost effective sole use container shipping services wordwide for household goods, personal effects, furniture & motor vehicle shipping for assignees or migrants moving or emigrating overseas.

If you are relocating overseas whether it is for work, emigrating or just a change of lifestyle and you want to take all of your possessions you would probably need to use a steel shipping container for your own exclusive use. These come in 20’ 40’’ 40’ HC (High capacity) and 45HC. The service is direct and transit times are shorter than a shared container or groupage service.

The shipping container will normally be loaded at your residence (access permitting) transported to the port to be shipped on the appropriate vessel for your destination. Upon arrival our agent would arrange customs clearance and then delivery to your residence. The container seal is then broken (Unless customs have checked the shipment) and the furniture and effects off loaded, checked against the original inventory, placed into your new residence and the packing materials removed.

Certain destinations prohibit the delivery of the shipping container to your residence, usually due to quarantine formalities, in which case the shipping container will be unloaded at our agent’s warehouse and your goods after undergoing quarantine formalities delivered to your residence on a removal vehicle.

If you would like a cost for a shipping container call Imove for a quote. Alternatively complete our quotation request form which will give us a volume. A quote for the most cost effective service will be emailed to you normally within 48 hours.

We used this company for our move from London to Auckland (NZ). The experience was really good at first, but when we received our boxes in Auckland, one was missing with parts for our baby's cot. At first they wouldnt want to hear anything as I didnt subscribe to an insurance (I didnt complain about the various things that arrived broken, but i thought delivering all the 25 boxes without missing one was the bare minimum we could expect from a moving company), I then had to escalate and speak to someone higher in the hierarchy, they first told me that they would cover the cost for replacing the cot...and then went silent. After 2 months I had to send them an email every week to have an update and it was always "we ll come back in a few days" (of course they did not) ... more than 2 months after my complaint (and 6 months after they collected the boxes in London to send them to Auckland) we are now left without a cot bed for our 10 month old baby and we have to buy another one for £300 as they cant replace the parts or even refund the cost. Needless to say that I am very disappointed, we paid top money for that move hoping it would go well but not only did they lose a box but the interaction to try and get a refund was very slow and painful. There are so many other moving companies, I would strongly advise to go with someone else.
This company is SHOCKING. Lots of hidden costs - about £1000 - long delays and rude when they don’t ignore you. Which is most of the time. AVOID AVOID AVOID
I wanted to take a few items of new furniture to my house in Spain which I couldn't buy out there. As it wasn't a full move I needed a 'groupage' service. I had several quotes and whilst IMove was in line with the others on price more or less I chose them solely on the basis of their reviews. Whilst there were a few horrors they seemed to receive 5star reviews pretty consistently. There was one poor review in particular which concerned me so I asked Aaron what had happened and he was very happy to give me Imove's side of the story in detail. He came across as very open and transparent and I believed him. There are always 2 sides to a story so if you are thinking of using IMove and are concerned by a bad review my advice is ask them about it. Moving on Aaron and then Michaela were both superb. Professional but friendly and once I was committed Michaela kept in regular touch always updating me when she said she would and generally going the extra mile to keep me informed. The crews at both ends were also friendly, polite and treated my furniture with care. So all in all I would certainly recommend IMove and wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Thanks guys! Ros
