How will Pickfords move your goods to Latvia?

Your goods will be sent to Latvia via road freight. They will be packed and loaded at your UK residence, onto a vehicle heading for Latvia. We offer three road freight options to our customers to ensure your requirements are met:

  • Exclusive container. A 20ft or 40ft container will be loaded with your goods and then sent directly to Latvia. We recommend this option to customer who are looking to move a larger amount of goods and who may have a tighter schedule to meet.
  • Shared container load. This service is where you share the container with other Pickfords customers moving to Latvia. The team will give you are guaranteed delivery date and this will usually be within seven days of loading in the UK. We recommend this option to customers who can be a little more flexible with timings.
  • Group Shared container. We will pack and load your goods at your UK residence and they will then be sent to our local warehouse. You will share the container with other customers. The consignment will be consolidated and then sent on for it’s onward transit to Latvia. You will get an agreed delivery window and nearer the time you will receive a specific scheduled delivery date. This is a very cost effective way of sending your goods to Latvia, however flexibility is important.
