Moving Overseas? Why Use TFM?
TFM are a genuine family run company established in 1992. We are members of The British Association of Removers. We ALWAYS use our own staff to estimate, wrap and pack your home. Your shipping paperwork will be prepared by a member of staff who specialises in overseas removals.
Because of our experience and knowledge we will try to warn you of the pitfalls BEFORE your goods are shipped, not afterwards. We will make every effort to include everything in our estimate so you do not get additional charges when your goods arrive at their destination.
Beware of cheap estimates from agents who have never viewed your property. However well you think you have described your move, if you miss something it will not be their fault. If the volume is wrong, or the agent at the destination demands more money, you will see the true value of using an accountable mover who is a member of a recognisable trade association.Frequently Asked Questions
Small Loads to Most Worldwide Destinations
We can ship a small quantity of furniture or cartons in a groupage container with consignments from other customers. We will give you a written estimate based on a list supplied by you or our estimator will visit you to discuss your requirements.
We can pack and wrap your goods ready for shipping and offer comprehensive insurance. We will also complete a full numbered inventory of the goods. Our agent will contact you when they are ready to deliver your goods the cost of which is included in our charges.
How Groupage works
There are containers on the ground for each worldwide destination that we ship to. TFM and other contractors bring in consignments and the cargo goes directly into the container that it is going to be shipped in. Once the container is full the doors are closed and it is returned to port to be loaded on a ship which will sail to the destination where our agent will unload the container and deliver all of the individual consignments to the customers. Another empty container is collected from the port at the same time and the process is repeated.
How long does Groupage take?
It depends how much cargo there is at that time of year which will determine how long it takes to fill up the container, how often a ship sails to the destination, the time the ship takes to reach the destination and then the time it takes to have the container released to our agent. We will try to give you an indication of time but apart from the collection of goods the whole process is out of TFM’s control.
Moving Your Whole Home?
TFM can arrange an exclusive shipping container which our staff can load at your home and will hold only your possessions. Your container will be sealed and we will complete and give to you a full numbered inventory.
Your container will be loaded to a ship and we will give you a specific date of arrival. Our agent will deal with customs and immigration and contact you with a date of delivery to your new home.
