Transit Times

When planning an international move, most of our customers are keen to know how long it will take the consignment to reach its destination.

For most ports there are several weekly sailings, however shipping lines do alter schedules from time to time without prior notice. Also it is worth noting that transit times can be effected by economic fluctuations, adverse weather conditions and transit times and costs can vary.

Please contact us early when planning an international removal so that we are able to match the correct sailing to your budget and time constraints.
