For long-distance moves, Johnson’s of Shaftesbury offer a sea freight service that’s far less expensive than other relocation options (e.g. air). It’s ideal for people moving to countries outside Europe. Our experienced packers will get all your belongings packaged up to export standards, so that they’re completely safe from the elements. At one of our depots, everything will be placed in a shipping container, before travelling to the nearest port, ready to sail to your new home. You’ll be issued with an exhaustive inventory of your belongings, which will be referenced at the other end to make sure that everything’s accounted for. We have fully vetted partners around the world, all of whom come up to our rigorous standards, so you can rest assured that your worldly goods won’t pass into unknown hands. After travelling through customs, your goods will make the final leg of their journey, arriving safe and sound at your new home.
