International Removal Costs

How International Removal Costs are Calculated.

International removals costs are dependent upon the amount of household goods, furniture and personal effects you want to ship overseas. We assess the items and work out the volume in either cubic feet or cubic meters. The cost of the International removal is then based on the amount of space your goods will take up in a shipping container or removal vehicle.

VOLUME CALCULATION:
For example an average 3 seater sofa is estimated at 60cubic feet or 1.7 cubic meters, an armchair at 25cubic feet or .7cubic meters, a double divan bed at 60cubic feet or 1.7cubic meters, a washing machine is 12 cubic feet or .34 cubic meters. We add up the volumes  of all the items to be moved to arrive at a total volume of the shipment.

Other factors that affect international removal costs is the amount of export packing required, packing material costs, the cost of the ocean freight, fuel, and delivery agent’s costs. Prices also take into consideration the service level required, whether you require a box packing service or if you are packing yourself, whether you require an un-packing service or a straight forward delivery into rooms designated by you. You may require a special crating service for delicate or valuable items, parking suspensions, ladder lifts, Tran-shipment vehicles all these costs will be factored into your international removal and shipping quotation.

When obtaining quotes for your International Removal it is important to provide the removal company with as much information as possible in order to receive an accurate quotation. The removal company will need an accurate list of the items to be moved including a best estimate of the boxes required for the items which will need packing, such as bed linen, duvets, kitchen equipment, books, clothing, etc. The international removal company will need to know about any exceptionally heavy items, such as pianos or safes to be moved, and they will want to know if there are any access difficulties for the removal vehicle at the collection and delivery address.

INTERNATIONAL REMOVALS INSURANCE:
International Removals Insurance will increase the costs of your International removals. Whilst every effort will be made to protect your goods whilst in transit overseas, transport by sea involves several different service providers and associated risks. Shipments can be susceptible to loss and damage whilst in transit ie there could be an accident at the docks, or worse the container could be lost overboard. Taking out insurance for your possessions whilst in transit, although an extra expense is definitely an option you should consider.  Removals Insurance premiums are based on a percentage of the value you place on the goods. Plus Insurance premium tax @6% of the premium payable.

An accurate assessment of your removal requirements and the total volume of the goods to be moved will ensure an accurate quote and planning of the removal and shipping. Will avoid any surprise costs on collection or delivery day and will of course result in a stress free move.

Highly recommend IMove International Removals Ltd. used them to bring us out to Dubai and then back in recent years. Cracking service and helpful team in Dubai and in the UK who answered all queries. Great packers and shipment arrived near enough exactly when they said it would (luckily no hassle at customs). Happy to recommend. J-MC
I went to great lengths to explain to [Staff Member] about the access limitations to my house which wouldn't allow a large furniture truck. Even sent him photographs and guided him to find us on Google Earth. All to absolutely no avail, I might as well have been talking to the wall in the office, the notice he took. The company has refused to acknowledge my e-mails and calls since, and what is even worse, a couple of items got broken (which is why we pay insurance). They have refused to give me their Insurer's details... one has to wonder if the insurance funds were actually paid on by Imove. I am out of pocket by having to hire at very short notice, local transport to shuttle my stuff from the main trunk road up to my home. The actual movers who were sub-contracted by Imove could not have been more helpful, but the reality is no way could they get to my house with their Road-train truck. The IMove company is just a front desk, there is no substance behind it and the level of service once they have your money is diabolical. Trading Standards will be informed, certainly with regard to the apparent non-payment of the Insurance fee.
Never used this company, the packing people stolen my daughter smartTV, my new hair straightening, my husband brand staff for gym , everything worth about £2000 Disappointed
