Default How much it will cost me to move back from USA to UK

I am considering to move back to the UK with my parents in the next few months, so i have no idea of relocating prices and discounts. I was raised in the USA when my parents first came here. So, guys, what prices should i expect for a full house removal and what are the time periods of the whole process?
Can someone who already faced this big challenge tell me more about the process?
I want to avoid all kind of stress that comes with it.
Regards.

Hi and welcome to British Expats

Where in the USA are you moving from? This will play a factor in your costs/time period.
For a full house move you're likely to use a sole use container (either 20 or 40ft) so this will be speedier than a shared load service.

Costs can vary wildly depending on your individual circumstances, things like the quantity of belongings you want to move, location of your origin and destination and access to your properties (both internal and external), the services you need help with (e.g. just packing or dismantling etc.), special care items that might need crating like motorbikes, valuable/fragile artwork etc. So best thing to do is to get a few quotes, we normally recommend 3 to give you a good comparison. You'll be offered a free home visit and quote so a surveyor will come to your home to find out more about your individual move and asses all the things above before giving you a tailored price and move plan.

In terms of choosing a company we always recommend to look for a FIDI FAIM certified company to make sure your mover is pre-vetted to ensure they hold all the right experience and qualifications for international moving and have demonstrated the standards required to reduce the risk of anything going wrong. You can choose a mover based in the USA who will handle the packing/loading and then contract a partner to do the delivery and unpacking in the UK, or contract a UK company who will appoint a partner in the US for the packing loading and then will handle customs clearance and delivery themselves. Whoever you contract with will handle all your planning and coordination to make sure everything runs smoothly.

There are lots of other tips about choosing movers and planning your move in our International Removals guide and i'm sure some of the other members will share their experiences and some cost guides with you based on their individual circumstances to give you a feel for things and some personal recommendations.

Hope that helps?
