Sea Freight

Talking about the most economical way of getting your household shipped from the UK to the US is via sea freight. However, when we consider the time it takes for shipping, it is much slower than air freight. So, if you have sufficient time for your removals to get arrived at your end location, then we would recommend you opt for our sea freight packages.

Here Are the Options We Offer to You When You Use Sea Freight-

  • Groupage or shared container - This method is considered to be the most economical method of shipping if you have a home moving volume that does not demand use of a full load container. Also, it is a great method that you can use to ship your large number of furniture pieces. This method allows general flexibility, and you only pay your own move volume rather than an entire container. Groupage containers only exit their terminal once they have been completed filled meaning they generally ship every 2-4 weeks depending on location. Transit times to East Coast USA are around 4-6 weeks whilst shipping to West Coast USA can be around 6-10 weeks.
  • Full container load - This method of sea freight is recommended if you are moving the complete content of your home or have a specific moving deadline to receive your belongings at destination. Full load containers usually come in 20ft and 40ft variants. A two or moderately furnished three-bedroom home can normally fit in to a 20ft container with the latter being for full furnished three-bedroom homes and larger. Full container loads leave UK port weekly with set transit times to different ports, meaning you will not wait on a groupage container to be filled prior to exit.

    Full load containers also offer extended security, fewer handling points of your belongings and a speedier transit.

  •  Air Freight - Although this method of shipping goods from the UK to the US is comparatively costly, it is an excellent way for those who want their possessions to get shipped in a lesser time. Air freight services exit daily from UK and have an expected door to door transit of between 3-7 workings days. Air freight services for Moving to the USA from the UK are recommended for more smaller quantities where only a few pieces are being transported, or albeit belongings which need to be delivered as quickly as possible.

Whichever method is recommended for your removal to USA you can be assured it would be the most cost-effective and carefully selected method to perfectly complement your move.
