Deciding to move abroad is a big decision and one fraught with numerous complications. Alongside concerns about where you’re going to live, work and send your children to school, how you’ll move your belongings thousands of miles is mind-blowing.

Thoughts of that priceless family heirloom being lost somewhere en route or your favourite painting snapped in two before it arrives might be at the forefront of your mind but PSS International Removals believe we can take the stress and strain out of moving – even if it is to the other side of the world.

PSS International Removals is a family-run business that has specialised in international removals since 1982. This means the company has vast experience in this sector, both in terms of staff and processes.

We offer a wide range of services for the removal of personal and household effects which can be dispatched by air or sea, from a small baggage consignment of one carton or more, to an entire household or motor vehicle shipment to destinations worldwide.  The most popular destinations include Australia, New Zealand, Canada, India, USA and UAE.

Although the world is getting smaller as transport links improve and the average person’s passion for travel increases, the complexities of moving large loads and relocating lives are still numerous and varied.

PSS offer a free, no obligation, removal quote service.  You can choose to access a free online international removals quote or arrange for a free estimators appointment. An experienced estimator can visit up to 3 to 6 months before your departure.

In order to get the right price, for your needs, you’ll initially have to decide how you’d like to ship your belongings. PSS can advise on the best option for you. There are two types of baggage services – Sea Freight and Airfreight/Express. Sea freight is more affordable, but is a slower service, ranging from 2 to 12 weeks, depending on your destination.

Airfreight/Express is quicker, although you may pay more, depending on the quantity of cartons/suitcases you are sending and the destination. The transit time can range from same day to 14 days.

Once the quote is arranged and agreed the PSS removal service is professionally efficient. You’ll have two advisors who’ll not only take care of your belongings but will also have the inside track on any documentation you’ll need. Knowledge of what you can and can’t take with you will also be at their fingertips. They’ll know that bringing baby gates into Canada might prove problematic and that in New Zealand those wicker cane chairs of yours could be a sticking point!

Running around like a headless chicken on the day of removal is not an option at PSS. We’ll pack all your items into export approved cartons and all the furniture will be wrapped and protected using 6 ply export approved blankets. Once packing is complete, you’ll get a full inventory of what’s accompanying you abroad.

In most cases, and in most countries, your furniture is delivered directly to your new address. Rest assured if you don’t have a permanent address for your new destination, PSS have seen it all before, and have measures in place to deal with most eventualities.

PSS is also part of the BAR Overseas group and is covered by the Advance payment guarantee. The organisation has also achieved FAIM accreditation, the quality assurance standard controlled by the FIDI Global alliance. In addition, the British Association of Removers (BAR) & IMMI Payment guarantee scheme financially bond us.
