International Moving


International Removals

Chapmans of Cardiff assist in international removals on a daily basis.  For over one hundred years we look to one goal for moving clients internationally and that is to treat each client as an individual with unique relocation requirements.  We make relocating internationally much easier because we are always well prepared, giving our clients confidence that their international relocation will be carried out professionally from start to finish.

International Moving

If you are moving to Asia, America or Australia, Chapmans of Cardiff are on hand to assist you.  We have a wide network of partners that we work alongside with to ensure that your move goes as smoothly as possible, offering an international moving solution that will meet your unique requirements every time.

The Process Involved In International Relocations

Initially we will arrange to meet you at your home so that our international removals specialists can advise you on what the process will be, ensuring that your needs are met.  We offer a bespoke international removals service whereby we make sure that your household or business effects are our number one priority from the moment they leave your home through to the final delivery of your effects.  We always advise our clients to prepare for their move in advance, ask us any questions that you may have because talking to us early on can often avoid trouble later on.  Sometimes some of your effects may not be allowed to travel to the country that you are moving to, we can advise you on what is and is not allowed to be transported.  We will be fully aware of the rules and regulations of the country that you are moving to and so we will be on hand to advise you accordingly.

We will also choose the most economical method of transport available to you, be it by air, sea, road or perhaps a combination of all three.  Your removals specialist can help you with all of the above.

Choosing you package

When you partake in an international removal your effects are usually loaded into a shipping container, therefore the cost of your international removal depends on the amount of space that your belongings take up.  If you don’t pack your effects correctly then you are going to be wasting space and money and it can often lead to your effects getting damaged during transit.  Chapmans of Cardiff offer a specialist packing service so that you don’t have to worry about this at a time when you have so much else to worry about.

We ensure that your effects are loaded into your container at your home and unloaded at your new home in your new country if you are choosing our full container method.  If you are opting for a part load then your effects will be taken to our safe and secure warehouses ready for shipping.

Extended Liability and Insurance

Chapmans of Cardiff ensure that your effects are protected throughout the journey to your new home in your new country but there are always risks involved with any international relocation, often these are beyond our control and so we recommend insurance cover that is adequate for your effects.  Your insurance will protect all of your effects against the risk of damage or breakages in transit.

Chapmans Top International Removals Tips

  • Ask us about what you want to transport, after all we are the experts.
  • Airfreight is faster but a lot more expensive and items can still take days to arrive.  Decide if you really need it or can you buy it when you arrive.
  • Don’t pack your travel tickets in your consignment; it is surprising how often this happens.
  • Don’t move on the day of your flight; arrange it for a day or two before for less stress.
  • If you have pets ask us about transporting them safely at the earliest time.
  • Think about when you are moving, summer is always a busier time so you need to be prepared.
