All the care and quality that’s part and parcel of our domestic service is also brought to our overseas moves. We’ve been relocating people internationally for a long time, having been founded in the 1800s, and today we’re part of a global network of moving specialists – the Master Removers Group. We can make sure your international move is efficient, stress-free and completely successful and we can also return you to the UK in equal style. No matter the specific requirements and complications of your move, we’ll take them on board and organise a service tailor-made to suit you.

We make your peace of mind a priority throughout, doing whatever we can to mitigate stress and worry. We’ve had nearly two centuries in which to build up knowledge and expertise and we bring it all together so that you have a moving experience characterised by competence, courtesy, quick thinking and attention to detail.

The Destinations

The Master Removers Group is one of the country’s biggest and most successful moving organisations, looking after over 10,000 moving assignments every year, with a network of UK depots and moving personnel in Europe, Australia, the States, Hong Kong, China, South Africa, Africa, Singapore, New Zealand and beyond. At no point does your relocation get farmed out to sub-contractors and unknown third parties. At every stage, only trust and vetted partners are involved, so that your possessions don’t pass into unverified hands.

Moving Overseas Without Stress

While it would be rash to claim that we can do away with stress altogether, at Johnson’s of Shaftesbury we believe that it should rest on our shoulders, not yours; we deal with it while you get on with living life. You can use us for as many aspects of your move as you like. We have a full packing/unpacking service which means we take full responsibility for boxing up your old property, make a thorough inventory as we go along before placing all your belongings into shipping containers in readiness for their journey. At the other end, we unload the containers and, referencing the inventory, place every item in the room to which it belongs in your new home. You’re left with a completely habitable property from day one, instead of living in a chaos of cardboard boxes.

Our forward-planning team will work tirelessly to strategise and schedule your move and will also look into any potential complications at customs, making sure the necessary paperwork is in place to get your goods through without any hold-ups. Just place a call to us today and ask for an international move consultation. If your move is small (ie one-bedroom flat) we can provide you with a quote over the ‘phone. If it’s bigger, we can visit you and make a full assessment. Your free, no-obligation quotation will be devoid of jargon and easy to grasp, with everything disclosed up-front. From your budget to your time constraints, all will be taken into account when we draw up a step-by-step strategy for your move, outlining every stage so that you can plan accordingly.

It can seem as if there’s an endless to-do list when you’re moving overseas, but we can do the bulk of the work as well as advising you of anything you need to do, so that everything stays on track and worry becomes a thing of the past. We’ll guide you through any forms and documentation you need to complete and you can leave customs negotiations to us. We have an international moving checklist which will ensure that nothing gets forgotten or left to the last minute. At any point during your time with us, we can provide advice, tips and guidance on the telephone.


At Johnson’s, we’re held to a rigorous sets of standards which we take pride in meeting or even surpassing. That’s because we’re members of BAR (British Association of Removers), which compels us to maintain excellence. This means that when you move with us, you can relax; you
