A choice of transit options as part of our overseas removals service

You can choose a shipping container for your own exclusive use which is loaded and sealed at 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 moving overseas and 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 company.


For those items you require quickly, airfreight offers a faster transit time. Many families moving internationally 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 securely cased to ensure maximum protection during transit.

World class packing assistance for moving overseas

Great skill and care is needed to wrap, pack and load your possessions safely, to protect them throughout their journey overseas. That’s why we ensure we have the best-trained overseas removals packing teams in the industry.
