Moving within Europe

For relocations within Europe, we will transport your possessions by lorry to your final destination. Our removal lorries can each accommodate the contents of an average size Four-bedroom property. Smaller loads that do not fill an entire lorry may be available and will cost less, but the time taken to arrive at the final destination may take longer, depending on the route and delivery schedule.

Moving outside Europe

A full door-to-door managed international removal service, from booking the container ship to arriving at your new location. We take the hassle out of international moving, making your move to another country as stress-free as possible for you and your family.

Moving overseas can be very complex. For many, this isn’t a regular occurrence and there are a number of risks associated when moving abroad. On top of all the organising and packing, there’s border control in a new country, customs clearance, varying laws and legislation on what you can and can’t take into different countries. Plus, items have to be packed in a particular way to ensure safe handling, whilst also satisfying custom regulations.

We’ve managed many moves overseas and have the experience and knowledge to ensure that this is a smooth process. We can plan everything for you, coordinating travel times and ferry times to ensure that everything arrives on the day you need it to, without any snags or delays.

When moving to a country outside of Europe, your possessions will travel by sea in metal freight containers. The cost of transportation will be based on how much container space is required for your items. Although we make every effort to protect and secure your belongings, depending on the destination, transport by sea can take anything up to three months. During this time, your items are at risk of loss or damage. We therefore provide optional insurance for your possessions to give you added peace of mind.

Should a delay occur which prevents you from transporting or taking delivery of your belongings on the date planned, we can arrange short-term storage for you 

Fantastic service from UK to Ireland

Dan and Ben have moved us twice in the last year and have been outstanding on both occasions. A week ago they helped us move from Leek in Staffordshire to Kilmacthomas in the Republic of Ireland.
The whole operation was well planned by the team and carried out with skill, good humour and complete confidence. We would thoroughly recommend Norman Ferns.
