An overseas move can be complex, so it's essential that it is organised by experts. Your possessions are precious to you, so you will want a removal company you can trust to transport them safely and efficiently over many miles. Weston & Edwards have the knowledge & expertise which, when combined with the care, consideration and reliability afforded by a family firm, gives you complete peace of mind.
Your goods are packed and loaded into a 20' or 40' container at your home (or from our warehouse if storage is required in the interim). The container then goes to the nearest container port here in the U.K. shipped to the port nearest to your destination, then on by road to your new home. Unloading is undertaken by one of our approved associate removers of the country.

| Your goods are packed and 'export wrapped', using paper blankets, bubble wrap and cardboard, then loaded into a security sealed, steel, watertight shipping container at your home (or from our warehouse if storage is required in the interim).|
A full inventory is taken by our staff, with a copy given to you and all packages are labelled with your name and destination address.

| The container then goes to the nearest container port here in the U.K. shipped to the port nearest to your destination, then on by road to your new home. Unloading is undertaken by one of our approved associate removers of the country, removing and disposing of all the packaging materials.|
The container is sealed at your home and remains unopened until delivery at your new address.
Your goods can be delivered 'door to door' or made available for collection at the nearest port.
A whole household or a few personal possessions - you only pay for the space you need!
A full 20' container will accommodate an average 3 bedroom house, with 40' and 45' containers for larger households.
If you're taking a lesser amount considerable savings are made by sharing the space with our other customers.
Part or Shared Containers (groupage)
If you do have not a full household, you can share a container of household goods with another customer going to the same destination. This is normally only available for the most popular destinations.

| Crated Part Loads|
For small part loads to destinations for the less popular destinations, where there is non-regular domestic traffic, like Africa, South America, China, Japan, Far East, we can still offer reduced rates for shared containers but we'd recommend that we crate your goods, for extra protection as they may be sent with general cargo.

'All Risks' insurance cover is provided at a low premium, thanks to our excellent claims record.

In many cases, complex documentation is required when moving overseas and this can be quite a daunting prospect. Weston and Edwards can handle all the paperwork and customs clearance for any country in the world.
Storage may be required before your goods are sent abroad. Weston and Edwards offer the most modern and secure storage facilities available. Storage

Top tips when moving house...
1. Get a quotation well in advance. Either complete our quotation form or make an appointment with our removals estimator. Proper planning ensures a smooth and trouble-free move.
2. If you have time, get rid of all your unwanted items and rubbish in advance - it's lovely to move into a new home, without unwanted clutter.
3. Doing your own packing? Anything that will fit into a box should be packed. Other loose items, garden tools for instance, can be taped together. Don't overfill the boxes. It's best to use our cartons as they are tailor-made for the job.
4. Items can be left in drawers if they're not too heavy, and if the drawers are removable (Our chaps can take the drawers out, put the carcass in the truck and replace the drawers to cut down the amount of packing that you have to do)
5. Freezers can usually stay full. Perhaps put the food in bags/baskets, so that if we struggle, we can take the food out prior to loading, and put back in for transit. We are often able to plug in the freezer on an overnight move.
6. Keep all keys (filing cabinets, safe, wardrobes) together in a safe place.
7. Self-assembly furniture is best dismantled before moving.
8. Prepare a survival pack for the things you will need on moving day - toys, kettle, passports and for the first day in your new home ie: bedding. Keep this separately and make sure the removal men know.
9. Let your mover know beforehand if you haven't managed to get your packing done, got rid of stuff or anything else you haven't asked for in your removal quote. That gives us time to make the necessary arrangements.
10. Make sure your removal company is aware of any access difficulties at either property.
11. People to notify of your change of address: Doctors, dentists, banks, Gas, Electricity, Royal Mail, phone company, D.V.L.A (Driving licence), Friends and relatives!
12. Check that we are available before you commit to a moving date.
