A choice of transit options

Container for your exclusive use

You can choose a shipping container for your own exclusive use which is loaded and sealed and your residence and delivered straight to port. This service is direct and transit times are shorter than shared or groupage services.

Shared or groupage consignments

If you are taking less than a full house, Pickfords offers space in a container, which is effectively shared with other customers going to the same destination.

This is a cost effective method of shipment but transit times can be longer as there is a period of consolidation prior to departure.

Pickfords offers groupage services to more destinations than any other overseas removal company or group.


For those items you require quickly, airfreight offers a faster transit time. Many families elect to take "survival" shipments of their personal belongings.

Similar transit options are available with air carriers, including direct, consolidated and trans-shipment.

Your goods will be cased to ensure maximum protection during transit.
