Consolidation Shipping (Smaller Moves)

We’re a moving company and a freight forwarder. Our ocean freight service consists of smaller shipments and container service. Consolidation is done at our New York location, where we group smaller deliveries into a container heading to London. If you’re moving a one-bedroom apartment or a few pieces of furniture, it will be the least expensive route. Unlike most movers, we offer a direct service. We have containers that sail weekly and can get your goods door to door with no suprise charges. Below is sample pricing that you can use to gauge the cost of moving from NY to London.

Airfreight is the best way to get your household goods to its destination fast. However, it’s also the most expensive way to transport your household goods. If you’re in a hurry and not budget-conscious, then air transport is for you. We offer baggage service for smaller shipment, or we can palletize and ship your household goods via air freight. Unlike ocean freight, air freight is based on the weight and size of your move.

Similar to ocean freight, we can offer a port to port or full door to door service.

Auto Transport

If you’re moving a car from NY to London, we can help. There are several options you can choose from. The first and most common way to get your car there is called roll on roll off service. It’s a straightforward process with minimal downside. You would be responsible for driving your vehicle to the port in NY and picking up in London. Your automobile would be placed on a RORO ship and will be exposed to the elements.

The second option is consolidation container service. Your auto would be placed into a container with other vehicles going to the same destination. Although slightly more expensive than RORO service, your car will be containerized. It may also take longer to get to your final destination.

The last option is an exclusive container. You would get your own box for your vehicle and no one else’s. However, it will be the most costly our of the three. If you have any questions about shipping your car from NY to London, give us a call.
