International removals by air

There are times when moving overseas you need to have your household items soon after your arrival in another country. When this is the case, the best option for your removal is to ship by air - quickly and easily.


Although we will give you an initial estimate of the cost, it generally isn't always possible to give a final accurate price of the shipment by air until it has been collected and weighed. This is because the airlines charge on either the final volumetric weight or space - whichever of the two is greater. After we collect your belongings to be shipped by air, they will be forwarded to the airport for onward consolidation, weighing, and measuring.


When your belongings arrive at the airport, they will either be placed in an X-Ray machine or decompression chamber in order to comply with current air freight security measures. These are a necessary measure which should cause no wear and tear to your goods.

Customs documents

Upon presentation of the export documents to the airline or airline's handling agent, the necessary customs formalities will be completed and a customs examination may be carried out. It is important that you contact us to ensure you have the correct documentation for the country of your destination.

Door-to-door service or pickup

The choice is yours. You can choose to collect your items at the airport when they arrive, or we can arrange for door-to-door service for you.

When the items have been sent we will be allocated with unique air waybill numbers that will allow us to track your consignment throughout its journey to your new home.
