There’s nothing more daunting than moving house. Add in moving to a new location overseas and the enormity of the situation could throw even the hardened traveller off kilter. Packing up your belongings is a difficult business especially if you’re unsure of how to protect your goods or even whether you can take them with you in the first place.

Avoid some of the stress with the help of a family run, experienced business such as PSS International Removals. With over 40 years in the business we have plenty of experience in moving sofas – and lives – to the other side of the world. We also adhere to the highest international standards.

So where to start? Even before you’ve got your visas confirmed we recommend you call our free, no obligation, removal quote service. This will give you an idea of costings and logistics. At PSS we can also send an experienced estimator who will give you advice on sending your goods abroad. Once the quote is agreed you will be given your own moving coordinator to keep you updated.

If you’re planning to send either part or all of your household goods, this is classified as a removal. All of your belongings, which can include a car, will be sent via one container onto the destination.

If you’re moving to New Zealand there are a number of goods you cannot take into the country with you. PSS International Removals can advise you on this but more information can be found here.  You’ll also need specific documentation for your move, which again we can help with. Details are available here.

You have the option of packing your own goods or getting the experts in. If you decide to pack yourself we’ll give you all the boxes and packaging you need to protect everything on its long journey.

If you choose PSS to pack your belongings we will arrange a suitable ‘moving day’ date with you. Once the removal is complete you’ll be given a list of what’s gone and then the container will return to the depot or onto the demarkation port. This will be the last you see of your belongings until they arrive at your new destination.

When shipping your personal belongings to New Zealand the transit time between removal in the UK and arrival at your destination will be approximately 6-8 weeks for full container shipments and 8-12 weeks for part load shipments. PSS International Removals will also make sure you have all the correct customs documentation meeting New Zealand’s requirements.

Soon after you arrive in your new home, PSS will call to arrange the delivery of your goods to the location of your choice. It really couldn’t be any easier. For more information, please visit our website: PSS International Removals
