Moving in Europe

Most removals within the European mainland are carried out on a door to door basis by road, with a crew who will be responsible for looking after and delivering your effects safely.

While moving across borders within the EC is now easier than ever, you can be reassured that Holdsworth’s has specialist knowledge and expertise gained through many years of organising removals services throughout Europe.

Most countries and major cities are served on a regular basis and we are happy to move everything from a single item to a complete home. There are still many destinations where specific documentation and paperwork are required and Holdsworth’s can draw on its experience and network of approved European partners to smooth the way.

Wherever your new home is going to be, we will make sure that your belongings are delivered safely by one of our accredited agents.

Moving further afield

If you are relocating to a more distant destination, Holdsworth’s has the skills and experience to ensure that your belongings are protected and transported carefully. Our overseas experts have all the knowledge required to help you complete all the necessary paperwork and documentation for the country to which you are moving.

Your effects will need to be export packed and we will explain how they will be specially wrapped, protected and inventoried for the journey which they will undertake.

Depending upon the quantity and timescales required, there are several different systems of transportation to suit your needs.

Overseas Transport Methods

By sea – Full Container

Holdsworths - International shipping servicesThis is the most cost effective method of transportation if you have a large enough volume of effects to justify a container for your own use.

Standard size containers, from 20 foot long, are suitable for everything you may have in your home and business. Containers can usually be loaded and sealed at your home.


Holdsworths - GroupageThis is an economical way of sending smaller consignments of furniture and personal effects (from a single item upwards), in a shared container so that you pay only for the volume of your goods.




By Air – air freight

holdsworth - air freightSuitable for smaller consignments or when you will need some effects urgently in your new country.

Wherever your new home is going to be, we will make sure that your goods are delivered safely by one of our accredited agents.
