Forwarding and delivery

Shipping furniture with Pickfords the international movers

Loading your effects will depend on the mode of transport that you have selected as the best option for your move.

The paperwork

As an international mover, we need to ensure all the necessary paperwork is completed. The paperwork you need to send includes your customs documentation, insurance documents, and copy of your passport and travel itinerary.

Your Pickfords Move Manager will forward this information to our International Shipping department. If you have chosen air or sea transit options, our team will liaise with the shipping line or airline to ensure that your consignment is booked and forwarded by the chosen method.

Packing and loading

Your goods will be packed into a container at your residence. If you have chosen a shared load transit option, your furniture and household effects will be loaded into a vehicle bound for our international warehouse for consolidation prior to shipping overseas.

If you are a Pickfords customer, you can access information from our customs library.

At delivery

Our international operations team will liaise with our preferred agent at your destination, who will be briefed to expect your consignment. Our colleagues at your destination will make contact with you to talk you through customs procedures and arrange customs clearance of your goods at a mutually convenient time for your delivery.

Our preferred partner agent will collect your goods from the port or airport and deliver to your new home.

You will be asked to sign an inventory on receipt of your goods, which is our record of what has been delivered into your care.
