Castles of Kent have a thriving global removal business to the traditional destinations of Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA and South Africa. Popular new overseas destinations are Cyprus, Malta, Dubai, Kuwait, Gozo and the Far East are also served.
During the pre-move survey Castles will advise you whether your effects will be shipped in their own container or as a part of a shared consignment.
Most overseas shipments are loaded into steel shipping containers. Sole use containers will normally be packed outside your home, sealed and transported directly to the docks for shipment. Alternatively, if your move is not big enough to fill a container we will transfer them to our central International Consolidation warehouse where they will be stored safely until being loaded jointly with other loads travelling in the same direction.
Should you wish to move your car along with your household effects, Castles are able to offer this in either your own sole use container or as a part load consignment.
Items required urgently at your International destination can be sent by airfreight. Castles will pack these into airline approved triwall airfreight cartons or cases. For smaller consignment to remote destinations, your effects can be case packed for shared loading.
We will create a detailed tailor-made move plan, including exactly what you want moving and whether the packing team need any special equipment or materials to move large or unusual items. We will make sure that the removal of every single item in your home is included in the plan, even things tucked out of sight in loft spaces or cupboards.
All small items are wrapped in paper then carefully placed in strong cartons. All furniture and larger items are wrapped in multi-layer export grade wrappers. Card can be used for extra protection.
High value or unusual items can be further protected by custom casing. Once packed all items are marked with name, destination and inventory number.
