Removals to the USA

If you are planning on moving to America, whether to the East Coast or West Coast or somewhere in between (the Midwest!), Britannia Goodwins has the expertise and the local knowledge to tailor the move to your specific needs. We know moving your household goods is just a small part of your move, so we also have information about American visas and advice on getting settled in the United States of America.

What you're moving to America

What you move to your new home in America is just as important as how we move it for you. Your household goods and personal effects can be imported duty free, provided they have been owned for at least 12 months before arriving in the USA. Most containers arriving in America will be subject to examination by US customs. To import your household goods, we will provide you with the correct customs form which must be completed prior to your goods leaving the UK.

Prohibitions and restrictions on things you may move to America

In general it is in your interest not to import the following items to the United States of America:

Transit times

Transit of groupage (shared load) consignments usually takes 8 to 11 weeks via the East Coast and 11 to 14 weeks if going via the West Coast. Sole use containers will normally take two weeks to the East Coast and four weeks to the West Coast. However, transit times will also vary depending on the size of your consignment, customs or immigration delays and weather conditions. More information on overseas removals shipping times

Moving your domestic pets to America

We can recommend a specialised shipper of animals to assist you in sending your family pets to your new home in America. They will coordinate all documentation and necessary veterinary procedures for you and help clear your pets when they arrive in the USA. Find out more about moving your pets abroad.

Moving motor vehicles to America

Due to strict emission standards, only vehicles that have been manufactured in the USA can be shipped with your household goods. Contact us for more information on importing a car to the USA.

Pre-purchase an American car before leaving the UK & save money

Migrants can take advantage of AutoSource, a service where you can purchase your vehicle before departing for the US. AutoSource is designed for people who are moving to the US on assignment for two years or longer. AutoSource is the only authorised company in the world offering people moving to the US access to special factory programs for the purchase, lease or finance of a new vehicle.
