Pickfords, part of the world’s largest removals network, provides a complete moving service from any UK or Ireland postcode to anywhere in the world.

When moving to Sri Lanka, Pickfords will arrange a complete packing and shipping service of all your household goods, to be passed on to Allied Pickfords Sri Lanka for delivery to your new home.

Your local contact in Sri Lanka

When relocating to Sri Lanka, Pickfords’ international partners will help you settle in. Allied Pickfords’ office is located in Colombo, the largest city in Sri Lanka and adjacent to the capital.

What happens on arrival into Sri Lanka?

When emigrating to Sri Lanka, your dedicated Pickfords Move Manager will forward your paperwork to your local Allied Pickfords team, who will then assist with your customs forms and clearance prior to goods delivery to your new home.

Transportation of goods

Once your effects are packed into our cartons, they are secured in metal shipping containers and transported to Sri Lanka on cargo ships by your choice of shipping method:

FCL (Full Container Load)

For a speedy service, choose FCL for sole use of a shipping container; your effects will arrive within 4 weeks.


To minimise shipping costs, share a container with others so you only pay for the space you use. Transit times for groupage are between 5 to 6 weeks.

The transit time detailed is for guideline purposes only and may be subject to variation dependent upon prevailing market conditions, shipping line capacity and actual sailings. Your Move Manager will keep you updated following collection of your shipment.

Can you ship motor vehicles?

Yes; Pickfords will arrange consignment of your vehicle alongside your other belongings.

Can you store my belongings?

Yes. Pickfords can arrange storage for any or all of your effects either domestically or in Sri Lanka. Take a look at our international storage services for more details about storing your possessions in Sri Lanka in time for your arrival.
