Removal clients get a free no obligation home survey.
Prices can vary depending on your destination and your shipment size i.e. For a part household we offer a shared container service where you only pay for the space you utilize or for full households we offer a sole use containerised service.
It is understandable that you may not have a set removal date yet. We recommend 4 weeks' notice prior to removal, however we appreciate that there are a number of contributing factors that may mean you are unable to give this much notice. For this reason, we offer a provisional booking process where we will allocate a crew for your removal on the provisional moving date you advise.
On the day of your removal one of our experienced export packing teams will arrive at your residence to start professionally packing the contents of your home. PSS only handle and specialise in international removals and shipping. It is essential that any international removal is professionally export packed using the correct packing materials. All items will be packed into export approved cartons and all furniture will be wrapped and protected using 6 ply export approved blankets. Our export packing teams will always bring extra cartons and packing materials on your removal day, so if you are undecided over a particular item, please don't worry. Once packing is complete, our crew will create an inventory listing all the items you are sending to your next destination.
90% of full containers are loaded at your home. This is, however, dependent on access to your residence and the type of load.
If you are planning on shipping a part load shipment your goods will be removed from your residence using a PSS vehicle and loaded into a part load container back at one of our depots ready for shipment to your destination.
When your goods arrive at the destination we will handle all the customs formalities, clearance procedures and/or inspections. Some destinations require the shipper (yourself) to attend a meeting at your local customs office as part of the clearance process. Should this apply to you we will notify you well in advance.
We offer a door-to-door service, so once your goods have passed through customs they will be delivered directly to your residence. Your belongings will arrive at your residence inside the sea freight container or in a removal vehicle. This will all depend on the country you are moving to and the size of your shipment. Rest assured that we will keep you informed every step of the way.
All of our estimates are quoted as a door-to-door service. This service includes the custom clearance as well as other related charges (and other destination applicable charges). All related charges information will be clearly listed in your removals quote and explained to you by your Account Manager.
There is a possibility of additional charges if you ship items that are prohibited or restricted entry into the country you are moving to. Some countries have an agricultural concern, meaning a physical inspection of garden equipment and similar items may be performed upon arrival and in some cases treated. In this eventuality an additional fee would apply, however your Account Manager would be pleased to explain this in greater detail.
