Shipping abroad can be complex with each country’s customs requirements and local regulations being different. The precise cost for shipping or air freight will depend on the exact size (and sometimes the weight) of your consignment.

We recommend air freight if you require your effects promptly. If you wish to ship most or all of your household effects we recommend the use of a dedicated container for your house removal to the USA.

For smaller shipments, we recommend our part load (groupage) service as the most practical and cost effective option. The exact price will depend on the cubic capacity, container size, and service required. Part loads will be returned to our warehouse for consolidation and loading. Full load containers can be loaded directly at your home if the access allows.

Our export packing service provides a detailed inventory for customs and is suitable for use with ‘all risk’ marine insurance cover.

The US is one of the most popular expat destinations in the world. It is, after all, a country built by immigrants. The USA’s sheer size allows these expat communities to flourish and prosper. Its size also means that real estate is relatively cheap when compared to most other developed countries, especially in Europe. However, like with most countries, rental and property prices are higher in major cities such as New York, Chicago and L.A. Food, drink, clothing, utilities and a lot of other products are also relatively cheap which helps keep living costs low. The US is the richest economy in the world so expats can expect a very high standard of living.

America’s diversity in culture, communities and geography is matched by the diversity of its weather. Its northern states experience a temperate climate with four separate seasons, whilst the south experiences hot and humid summers and warm winters. Although the US doesn’t have an official language, English is by far the most widely spoken language, followed by Spanish and Mandarin.

UK citizens are able to visit the US for up to 90 days without a visa, as the UK is part of the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). However, you will need a work, family or other immigration visa if you wish to stay longer. It is also very important that you obtain comprehensive medical insurance for the duration of your stay in America, as the UK and USA do not have reciprocal agreements for health care. For further information visit the UK government’s Travel Advice for the USA website.
