Air freight is the most time-efficient way of transporting urgent shipments of specific personal items. Often, customers opt to have a smaller air freight shipment delivered with essentials while waiting for the sea-freight shipment which is a more cost-effective choice but takes a longer time to arrive.
– Full Container Loads (FCL) or sole-use shipping containers in sizes of 20′ or 40′ are utilized for complete household moves, which may include additional items such as vehicles. These containers offer the most efficient and speedy solution for direct door-to-door service.
– Shared Container Loads (Groupage) – the cost-effective way to transport your goods overseas.
Goods are loaded into the container along with other people’s goods to the same destination and you split the shipping cost.
– Less than Full Container Loads (LCL) – great for small shipments that require fast delivery.
Shipment is wrapped and secured in wooden crates and then loaded into a container with other goods.

International Removals FAQs

At Palmers Relocations, we offer free in-home or online consultations in order to assess your international moving requirements. This is always recommended to provide a precise Quote of the move especially when relocating from a full household.
Do you offer shared container services?
Yes, we do. Shared containers offer our clients an option to transport their goods overseas without needing to pay for a whole container. We offer this service to most countries around the world including Ireland, UK, Europe, Asia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and most of Asia.
Can I relocate my vehicle or motorcycle with me?
Yes, you can. We regularly relocate motor vehicles and motorcycles all around the world.
Please send us a message and we will be able to provide you with specific details based on the destination country.
Does your Quote provide cost Door-to-Door?
At Palmers Relocations, we pride ourselves on offering fixed costs when relocating our clients’ goods abroad. Whilst there are some costs out of our control such as duties or taxes, the physical move itself and associated delivery fees are always included in our rate.
Do you organise customs clearance and required documentation for us?
Yes, we do. Our experienced team will work with you prior to the move to ensure all documentation is prepared and ready for the international shipment of your goods. It’s all part of the service!
Do you pack and load our Furniture and Boxes?
At Palmers Relocations, we provide full international door-to-door moving service, which includes recyclable packaging materials, packing service and loading your household goods into our trucks/containers. We utilise our own professional and highly trained packing and moving personnel. This ensures your goods are packed and loaded to international standards. So much so, we were recognised and awarded for ‘Best Operational Provider’ in 2022 by AFRA.
Do you disassemble Furniture and re-assemble at delivery?
At Palmers Relocations, we dismantle furniture and re-assemble upon delivery for basic items such as beds and tables or anything that requires this service in order to safely relocate your personal effects. For IKEA furniture or difficult/custom furniture, we recommend using a handyman who we can arrange upon your request.
Can I pack / load my own container?
You can pack your own container, however, there are some aspects worth knowing before choosing this option. Firstly, often the customs authorities at your destination pay closer attention to owner packed boxes/container which may incur additional inspection costs. Secondly, there is minimal/no insurance coverage in case damage occurs during transit overseas.
What if we have heavy items such as Pianos?
We at Palmers Relocations actually operate our own piano specialist team who specialise in internationally relocating pianos of all sizes and will be able to help you with your move.
What if I need Storage?
Palmers Relocations operate our own storage facilities both nationally and abroad. This allows you to store your goods in a safe environment with one of our trusted service partners.
Do I need Transit Insurance?
Whilst our teams take the best care when relocating your personal effects overseas, ultimately damages can occur during transit due to third party involvement and the inherent risk of transporting goods via sea-freight.
We do recommend our clients strongly consider taking out some form of international removals insurance cover to protect your valuables during the relocation process. Our friendly staff can arrange this on your behalf and discuss the different options available to you.
When you book a removal with Palmers Relocations, we make sure that we go above and beyond to make your relocation as stress-free as possible.
