Overseas Removals

By Air

Forward your excess baggage via our air cargo services to reduce the cost significantly and to reduce the amount of luggage you have to carry.

We collect the excess suitcases, trunks etc from your home and the next time you see them is at your destination.

This service is very useful for shipment of tools or study textbooks that you will need soon after you arrive. Transit time is about 4-7 days after collection from your premises, dependant on your destination.

By Seafreight

For larger and less time sensitive shipments including Furniture and Household Effects or heavy items such as large quantities of books or study notes, we offer a seafreight service using only recognised and reliable shipping lines to the port nearest to your destination. We will collect the goods from your premises, check they are packed correctly and deliver them to the ship, ensuring they are correctly documented. We will advise you of the ships name, the date of arrival and the name of the agent at the port of arrival.

Full Household

If you are emigrating or going to live abroad for a long period of time, you may wish to take all your belongings with you. For many countries we can supply a complete door to door service, loading a 20 or a 40ft shipping container at your home and unloading it at your new home. For other destinations we can ship to the nearest port.

We also offer our services throughout Europe although there are certain exclusions including former USSR countries.

Packing Service

We will supply you with sturdy export quality cartons together with a quantity of bubble wrap and adhesive tape for each shipment so that you can pack your goods yourself. For larger shipments that include furniture etc we will remove the goods unpacked from your premises and export pack them at our warehouse to ensure they are safe for transport. Alternatively we can pack all your goods such as crockery and household good onsite at your home.


All documentation for the export of your goods can be completed in your own home and all Export Customs Clearances will be handled by Xport. Advice will be given on import clearance requirements at your destination and the name and address of our agent at the arrival port/airport who will assist you with any import clearance procedures.


Insurance is available on goods shipped to most destinations. However insurance can only be effected upon receipt of written instructions and with details of all items being shipped. Contact us for further details.
