Default Recommended Shipping comapny for 1 cubic meter of items?

HI All,

Does anyone have any good recommendations for a company to ship one cubic meter of sports equipment?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi!

When I moved over I used Crown Relocation, the front end service was excellent but then it took my belongings over 6 months to arrive due to their groupage option, which means that they don't send your things until the container was filled, ours was delayed due to someone else pulling out. So if you were to use them I would check up on this or pay extra to express your items. But to be honest its not worth the extra or the risk of the groupage.

Our friend who moved before us used Global Maritime, I think they are now known as Migrate Global. They had no issues whatsoever, but I would advise looking out for the groupage option that most companies do offer. Both companies are reasonably priced for the market and both come and do all of the packing for you which I found fantastic and it was all VERY well packed and protected. All of our belongings arrived perfectly intact. We shipped approximately 2 or 3 cubic meters and they arrived at 8am, packed and dismantled everything and were out by 8:40am. Migrate Global definately looks like the better option, they also offer good insurance packages. Good luck!

If you want to look at air freight option, rather than going direct to UPS, DHL etc......Transglobal Express

http://www.transglobalexpress.co.uk/

They can beat UPS, DHL prices....
