Moving to Washington DC

Personal Effects Shipping and International Relocation

If you are looking to move out of the UK, or to the UK, you’ll need someone to arrange for your personal effects (for example furniture, clothes, electrical items, and so on) to be packed away and shipped to your new home.  As a UK based freight forwarder, Mercator is able to offer a comprehensive international relocation shipping service.

If you are looking to move from or to the UK, then we can help with packing, loading and shipping your personal effects.  We can arrange for packing materials to be delivered to site, along with labour to pack large items and load them securely into a container or truck for onward transit to your new home.

We work on a purely case by case basis, we understand that no two relocation projects are the same, and with this in mind we can cater to your needs by being flexible and arranging various different services. For example, if you are shipping the entire contents of your home, you may wish to split your shipment into two lots: one less urgent shipment with bulkier items via sea freight, and one priority shipment with smaller/delicate items via air freight.

Once you have arrived in your country of residence we can arrange for clearance, delivery and unpacking into your new house, and remove all rubbish if required.

Some of our previous international relocation customers have taken vehicles with them, our car shipping team are able to arrange shipment of almost any vehicle, whether it is containerised or driven on and off the vessel for you.
