Moving from the UK?
We know there are many international moving
companies to choose from. Many with very good
credentials, but how do you choose a mover that’s
right for you?
We suggest you get at least 3 quotes.
See who you feel comfortable with, see who knows
their stuff, see who offers a great selection of services
and prices and has all inclusive rates.
The following presentation is meant to show you why
UPakWeShip should be one of these companies
providing you with a quote.
Having been in business since 1988 with have a wealth of that. So much so
that we realized a long time ago that quite often people can pack their
belongings themselves as well as or even better than a moving crew.Why?
Well they know what's precious to them, they have more time to pack
everything with care and to be honest you are not going to skimp on the
bubble wrap! On top of that many people do not want strange people in
their house going through their draws and packing their personal things.
So we introduced our U Crate containers that we send to you in advance that
you can load in your own time, just let us know when you are ready and we
will collect them from your driveway or curbside.
The best thing about them is it’s a lump sum price in advance whatever you
load in them so you know up front exactly what its going to cost.
Our Self Load Containers
Our U Crates come in 50 cubic feet and 100 cubic feet.
We also have small and large pallets that are a little
You can also build, buy or re use an existing shipping
If you are shipping everything in your house or beds,
sofas, or other large furniture items then our self load
20 foot shipping container will work great for you.
All these options offer up front all inclusive pricing .
One Company Door to Door
With our own offices in the UK, Europe, USA, Canada and
soon Australia and New Zealand we have our own people
to take care of you when you get there.They know and can
advise on customs procedures, documentation needed,
things to take or not and obviously are going to take care
of you overseas as they work for the same company and
not some agent overseas who happens to be offering the
cheapest price to the UK mover and doesn’t really care
about you or your precious shipment.
A sophisticated online secure
To export your shipment out of the UK you need to send
the shipping company a copy of your passport.
If you are moving to the USA for example you would also
have to provide your social security number if you have
You will have to probably pay a deposit with a credit card
Various other personal information will also have to be
given before shipping overseas.
Obviously you would want your shipping company to have
this information stored on a secure offsite server with the
highest public encrypted level available like UPakWeShip
Not a cardboard file on someone's desk or a local pc that
can easily be hacked.
Revolutionary Online Packing List
It doesn’t matter where you are moving to around the world, customs at the
destination are going to want to see a packing list showing them what you have
in your shipment.
UPakWeShip has invested a lot of time and energy not forgetting money to
make this process easier. If you choose a mover to come and pack your
shipment, the chances are the packer will write a list on carbon copy paper of
what he thinks is best to write for each box.
With UPakWeShip we have an online packing list creator which you can pull up
on your phone or I pad and walk through your house adding your items to the
packing list.Our packing list has a dictionary of acceptable items to most
customs so as you start to type a description it will recognize what you are
typing and add it. All the descriptions are customs friendly so you shouldn’t get
into any trouble.
You can save the packing list as you go until its all completed. Once you hit save
and submit you will be emailed a copy of your packing list typed in pdf format.
What looks better to a foreign customs official?A hand written list from a
packer or a typed list from UPakWeShip?
Custom insurance policy
Its true if you use a professional mover to pack your belongings that
you will obtain better insurance coverage, however for all the extra
amount you will be paying the mover to do this, the amount you saved
using us would easily go towards replacing an odd glass or two if your
packing wasn’t up to scratch.
Having said that we do offer you a unique policy designed especially
for UPakWeShip customers. Most movers can either offer you full
coverage if they pack it and total loss if they do not.
Total loss insurance only pays out if everything in your shipment is lost
which would probably only happen if the ship sunk.
At UPakWeShip we have a custom designed policy which we call our
silver coverage which covers total loss like the others but also if part of
your shipment was lost or got damaged by outside forces like weather
related incidents or if a fork lift damaged your crate or container. Its
not as good as full coverage for professionally packed goods but it’s a
lot better than total loss and as long as you take your time packing and
wrapping, chances are all will be fine.
Click on our label creator and stick a label on each of your pieces so that they
are easily identifiable just in case there was a customs inspection.The piece
number needs to match the piece on the packing list.You also use these labels
to tape on your U Crate or pallet so its easily to identify.
This is just another piece that makes us look professional and customs around
the world grateful that they can easily identify a box rather than trying to
read someone's hand writing!
We really are trying to make international moving simple and user friendly for
Online booking, customs forms, contract, insurance,
invoicing is all secure in your own portal.
Everything we do with you is web based.The beauty of this is that you
can securely log in wherever you may be in the world to complete your
documents, view your status, check your invoice or update a delivery
address for example.
Why are our rates so good?
Our investment in technology helps us keep our overheads low.We do the
majority of your relocation ourselves in house therefore we are not
paying others high rates.We have our own offices in most major markets
therefore controlling customer service and obviously delivery costs.
Lastly having been around since 1988 we have built up a substantial
following and have a large volume we ship every year.This gives us some
great buying power and any savings we achieve we pass on to you.
Don’t forget our rates are all inclusive and our U Crates are a lump sum
price for whatever you can get in it to ship.
