Journey times vary according to country, but, it can take several weeks for your consignment to arrive at its destination countries port of entry.

However, no matter how meticulously our moves are carried out, there are risks involved which are outside our control. Transporting your consignment is a classic example.
Whilst we may have packed and loaded your effects with utmost care and attention, there is always a possibility, however slight, that an accident could occur whilst they are in transit.
This is why we offer our customers insurance cover.

We can accept insurance liability for a higher amount, in which case we may make an additional charge.
You may find your own house insurance has some form of cover for goods in transit, it is worth checking.
For anything we move for you which is not covered by either your own or our insurance, in the event of any loss or damages, caused by negligence or breach of contract on our part.
Our liability to you will be assessed as a sum equivalent to the cost of their repair or replacement, subject to a maximum liability of £40 per item.
