Removals from the UK

Leaving the UK and moving abroad can prove to have its challenges. Whether you are planning on leaving the UK for a fresh start, or for a career change, a commonality between both is the process for removals. John Mason’s International removals service includes full export packing, loading, shipping, customs clearance, delivery and unpacking. If you’re looking to leave the UK, we can also provide you with storage and pet relocation, to ensure your animals arrive to your chosen location safely.

At John Mason, we provide an international removals service from the UK, for thousands of families every year. Our services are carried out on an individual basis, by our highly experienced International Move Managers.

Shipping Options – Removals from the UK

If you are intending to move to a different country, our removals service from the UK will be sufficient. With John Mason, we provide a thorough service through the start of your move from the UK, to the delivery and unpacking itself. Our international removals service from the UK generally include several different options depending on how much furniture is to be moved.

Exclusive Use / Full Container Load (FCL) Service: If you are planning on shipping your belongings from the UK in your own exclusive use container (referred to as a Full Container Load [FCL] Service), the transit time is approximately 8-10 weeks door to door. Container shipping from the UK is recommended for a full house removal. This type of removal from the UK allows you to have sole exclusive use of a 20ft or 40ft steel shipping container. Estimates include the contents of a three-bedroom house fitting into a 20ft container.

Shared Container / Groupage Service: If you have less than a full container load, you can have your belongings removed from the UK using our groupage service. This is usually a shared container service. If you are not removing enough of your possessions from the UK to fill a 20ft container, you can split the cost with other consignments. This is a cheaper option for many people who do not want to remove their whole house or are trying to keep the costs down for their move. The approximate transit time for a shared container / groupage service is between 10- and 12-weeks door to door depending on the country it is being shipped to.

The packers were careful, quick and courteous. I highly recommend this company and would definitely use them again! Efficient, polite, punctual: could not ask for more.

From start with Michelle to finish with Gill the level of service was excellent. John Mason and its international partners handled my move from Devon to Australia seemingly effortlessly. I couldn't ask for better.
