Shipping Personal Effects to the UK

Shipping your effects to the UK can be quite cost-effective, when compared with replacing locally. Plus of course, you will have items of a personal or sentimental value which are literally irreplaceable.

Whether you're shipping to London or elsewhere in England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland, Transworld can help you every step of the way.

When shipping to the UK, consider the following options: .

Sea Freight

FCL - Full Container Load

Transworld operates regular FCL shipping services to all major UK and European ports.

If you are shipping a full household you’ll probably need either a 20’ or 40’ sole-use container (FCL).

Depending on the access to your home and Council approval, the container may be able to be loaded at your residence, sealed and taken directly to port for shipping on first available vessel.

In the UK, the container will also be taken directly from the port to your new residence (depending on access) and will be unloaded by our local partners. 


For those with a small household or just looking to ship a few items, groupage shipping is the answer.

This way you share a container with other clients moving to the same destination. Groupage is an economical way of shipping, as you only pay for the space you use. Keep in mind, this service may take a little longer while we wait to fill the container for your destination but it is a very cost effective option. Transworld operates regular groupage services to UK.

Air Freight

Air Freight is the fastest option, though the most expensive. Ideal if you’re not taking a lot, or for those extra items you’ll need soon after your arrival.
