European Removals

Packing and transporting

Sheppards can come to your property to help pack your items ready for transportation and you can be confident that our expert removals team are trained in handling all goods from lounge furniture to fine art. You can rest assured that your prized belongings will make the trip in one piece.

Your possesions will be transported in state of the art vehicles built for the purpose of domestic removals. Our air suspension ensures that all of your packages have a smooth ride over long distances when moving to Europe.

When you are moving to Europe, your belongings can follow by road and ferry, sea freight or air freight. Whichever way you choose to send your goods, Sheppards will provide a door to door service, packing your belongings at one end and unpacking at the other.

There are three main methods of transporting your goods abroad, these are:

Road / Ferry Transport

The most popular for the European mainland destinations such as France and Spain. A removals team will arrive and pack your belongings and then drive over to your destination. This ensures the handling of your goods is kept to a minimum.

Sea Freight
This is the most common and cheapest form of transportation of overseas removals. A container comes in sizes of 20ft or 40ft and is completely water resistant. Assuming you hire your own container, this is generally delivered door to door for loading and unloading. Cost is normally charged on volume not weight.

Air Freight
Although the most expensive, the main advantage for air freight is speed. Rather than your items being packed into containers, they are securely packed into enclosed airline pallets which are then placed into the cargo hold of the plane.

Share the load

If you do not have sufficient goods to fill a container of your own, we operate a shared load service to many international destinations. Whether you have a single carton, or an entire house to move, Sheppards Removals has the knowledge and experience to plan and manage your move.

Our experienced packing team will prepare your consignment for the move to your home. We use premium export packing materials, and ensure that your move is carried out to the highest standards.

Our service doesn't end when you reach your destination, as our agents will manage the customs clearance and arrange delivery to your new home. If required, we can also arrange storage if your new home is not ready.

To discuss your requirements and arrange an initial consultation please contact us.

Collection, delivery & everything in between

When embarking on a move to Europe there is a lot to plan. Not only will Sheppards package your goods on collection and unpack on delivery, they will also manage customs clearance and can even arrange storage for you at your destination if the property is not ready.
