All-Round Service for Moving Overseas

At John Mason, we care about our clients and want to help with every aspect of your move overseas. International shipping is just part of what we offer; whether you need advice on acquiring a visa, help with taking your pet with you on your adventure or need to organise storage for some of your belongings, we can help.

Pet Relocation

We understand how precious pets can be to families, so we have a dedicated service committed to making sure your four-legged friends make it safely to your new destination with you. Take a look at to find out more about our pet relocation services.


There are many reasons storage can be necessary when moving overseas: perhaps your move is temporary or your new home is smaller than your current home and doesn’t have space for all of your belongings, or maybe you will be staying in temporary accommodation whilst you look for a more permanent home. In any situation, John Mason International has storage facilities on offer.

Destination Services

Depending on where you move in the world, settling in can be a difficult and lengthy task. John Mason offers destination services to help you familiarise yourselves with the everyday aspects of life in your new country. These include orientation tours, cultural and language training and help with administrative tasks, such as setting up a bank account and registering at a local GP surgery.

Currency Exchange

Becoming accustomed to a new currency is a non-negotiable aspect of moving internationally. There are many options out there regarding currency exchange, and deciding which to opt for and how much cash to transfer ahead of your move can all become a little complex. John Mason provides a complete range of currency exchange services to help you transfer money around the world with complete ease and simplicity.


Different countries have different regulations regarding visas and whether not you need one. Sourcing a visa can be an overwhelming and long-winded process, so a helping hand from people who have done it countless times before will prove incredibly useful here. If you could use some help in applying for a visa for your international move, visit our dedicated visa and emigration service.

Moving to a new part of the world can be a daunting prospect, whether you’re staying within Europe or venturing further afield, there are many things to consider when making a move overseas, so we’re here to assist you in every area. We have prepared moving guides to help you get started, and you are welcome to contact us with any further enquiries.

Some of our Customer Reviews

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.

Hertfordshire, UK to Virginia, USA - March 2023

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.

Devon, UK to Perth, Australia –April 2023

Absolutely one of the best movers I have worked with. Pleasant helpful admin staff and the delivery drivers were absolute angels sorting and moving the boxes where I asked them to. Arrived exactly when they said it would.
