Air freight removals from Staffordshire & Cheshire
When you're moving abroad, shiping your household by sea can sometimes take longer than you'd prefer. If you need your belongings quickly in your new country, we can ship them to you by air freight. From a single suitcase through to the full contents of your household, we've got the knowledge and experience to ensure your belongings arrive as quickly as possible at your destination.
Air freight pricing
We'll be able to provide you with an estimate of the cost of sending your goods by air freight, however, the final price is usually determined after your shipment has been collected and weighed. This is because airlines charge either on the final volumetric weight or space - whichever is greater. We will pack your goods for you, and then they will be forwarded to the airport for onward consolidation, measurement and weighing.
Loading on to the aircraft
When we pack your belongings, we will prepare your goods for air freight shipment in accordance with air freight security measures. When your goods arrive at the airport, they will either be placed in an X-Ray machine or a decompression chamber prior to being prepared for loading. Don't worry about the decompression chamber - it is a necessary step, and should cause no wear and tear to your belongings.
Export documents and necessary customs formalities will be completed and a customs examination may need to be carried out. When your belongings are ready to fly, we will be given unique air waybill numbers so they can be tracked throughout their journey.
Air freight destinations
We are able to offer service to all major international airports throughout the world, along with many regional airports. If you have a smaller consignment, you may want to collect the goods yourself from the airport, however, we suggest you allow us to assist with customs clearance.
Door-to-door service is available for the majority of destinations. If you'd like door-to-door service, please let us know. We're happy to arrange the service that best suits your needs.
