From Our Website

We do not load loose items into containers, period! Just like professional exporting companies we ensure all loose items are professionally packed, secured on to pallets and shrink-wrapped before loading to your shipping container. We are the only International Removals Company in the UK who use this tried and tested professional packing system to ensure the safety of your household goods. Now you can experience the benefits that professional exporters enjoy and be assured that our robust packing methods will give your personal effects the maximum protection for that overseas move.


Over 20 years ago the company primarily acted as a professional freight forwarder, arranging the shipping of commercial goods overseas for exporters and manufacturers. We are members of the British International Freight Association (BIFA), a recognised trade body of professional moving companies used by UK manufacturers and the British Association of Removers (BAR), the UK's premier trade association promoting professional excellence amongst moving companies. In the early years the company was frequently asked to relocate our clients staff to overseas posts and gladly took the opportunity to ensure that our clients personal effects were afforded the same quality of service that was given to their own commercial shipments.


To reduce shipping costs, we utilise all empty spaces where possible - inside drawers, between the legs of chairs and by packing soft furnishings such as bedding inside white goods. Space costs money! Our packers are experts at filling up those empty spaces to ensure maximum cost savings for your move. This process makes for a fantastic, tight, safe and secure package so your household goods are not rattling around inside a shipping container on their journey overseas. Simply a great way to ship your stuff.


Below are a few moving stories. Real reviews from Real people. We are simply delighted to share these unedited reviews for 1st Move from just a few of our satisfied customers. All the staff at 1st Move thank them and we really appreciate their comments, great feedback and support for our business and staff. Thank you once again for the impeccable service you provided. I've attached photos of the pallet as it was when I collected it from the warehouse (it was sunny, even with snow on the ground, as is usual for the Canadian winter), and when I'd brought the boxes into my apartment.
