Hello:

How is everyone doing? In anticipation of my fiancee joining me in the US, we are looking forward and trying to plan ahead. I would like to know if you have any expereinces of having bulk shipping done from the Uk to the US? Either you or your fiance/fiancee? or any one else. I 'm looking for your experiences with the shipping process, as well as references/shippers/freight forwarders, do's and don'ts, contact information, etc....!

Thanks all. And all the best.

Here may be a good place to start, and then search on the moving to America forum next.

I took about 12 weeks in all from Glasgow to Los Angeles. Once the stuff was in London, it waitied for a ship going to the pacific coast. Plus we had to pay for the inspection fees here in the states, which were left out of the contract in the UK, about $80.00.

I would not really recomend our carrier, I was not very happy.

we are movng all most a full house and we were recommended to use Global Movers/Anglo Pacific (they appear to be part of the same company)one goes in one direction and the other to the states. They only do international and are very exerienced. I was impressed with what I have seen so far and the quote they have given us is very reasonable, door to door and all the packing is included. Plus their insurance is cheaper than most other companies I have contacted so far. We will definitely be using them.
