Transportation of Household Goods to the UK
At Galleon International we take great pride in our ability to coordinate freight transportation for our client’s household goods and personal effects, by either of the following;
By road: We have our own specialist fleet of international vehicles, complete with our own crews operating extensively throughout the UK and Europe. As an extension of our service capability, we work with a carefully selected network of road transport companies worldwide. Our head office and warehouse is conveniently located for easy access to the UK’s European Freight Terminal.
By air: Where deadlines are tight and time is of the essence, this offers the fastest solution. We handle all scheduling of air freight and, where possible, use our preferred airlines with whom we have long-standing working relationships.
By sea: Where timings allow, this is often the most economical option. As a client, you are able to have your own exclusive container which, access permitting, can be loaded and sealed at your home address before being shipped. However, with smaller shipments there is an option for them to be packed and loaded into wooden containers, which are then consolidated with others in a standard shipping container. At Galleon, we can offer a groupage economy method, whereby your household goods are packed securely at our warehouse, before being shipped into a shared container.
We also advise and arrange for export and import customs clearance – please see the ‘Relevant Documentation’ section for the necessary forms and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
