Whether your moving to the USA or just want to ship something small across the Atlantic, we can help. Pickfords provides a range of shipping services to individuals and families looking to ship to the US, and regularly ships household effects to all areas of the USA.

Shipping from UK to USA by sea

The cheapest way to ship to the US is by sea. We offer our customers two different options when shipping to the US by sea.

Full container load (FCL)

Your effects are packed at your home and loaded directly onto a 20ft or 40ft container and transported directly to the docks to await the next scheduled sailing. Pickfords will arrange to send the consignment to the local Allied agent in America, who will liaise with you to help arrange customs clearance and delivery.

Shared load

Your effects are packed at your home on an agreed date and transferred to our international warehouse for onward transport to your new home in America. Your Move Manager will confirm arrival dates and liaise with you for delivery and unpacking once your consignment has cleared customs.  

This service is a more cost effective service than FCL, and is recommended if you can be flexible with your delivery dates, as you only pay for the space you use in the container.

What if I need storage?

If you have goods that need to be stored while moving to America, Pickfords offers international storage services which provide a professional storage solution at your destination in the USA.
