Hiya

 

i want to ship about 8 boxes to the USA from UK. I find a company and hear bad reviews about them. 

 

Can any of you recommend a company that you have had good experiences with or tell me which ones to avoid. 

 

Many thanks

I used 1st Move International to ship more than 20 boxes. https://www.shipit.co.uk/ 

Nothing was lost, damaged, or pilfered. 

 

Watch their video if how they pack https://www.shipit.co.uk/safer-packing.htm

I settled on Baggage Hub.

I haven't sent yet but my experience with them so far has been great. Received my boxes on time. Quick reply to questions and their customer portal is easy to use. Also door to door service. They are being a great help with the date of delivery as I am needing them to pick up the boxes before I am able to be in the country to receive them. 

So far so good. Fingers crossed it stays that way!

I’ve just had a look at them. Not too bad of a price if they have good reviews. 

 

Thanks for that

I forgot about the price. Yes that is good too!

 

I was recommended them by someone on here. She had used them and said it went smoothly for her.

i used baggage hub to ship 3 boxes. they were great, just bear in mind they have no control over how people treat the boxes once in transit. don't overload boxes, uses the boxes they provide, pack them properly, and do not over pack them so that sides bulge. i think peoples poor reviews are concerning the condition their stuff arrived in, but this will majorly be down to poor packing / weak boxes. hope this helps.

I used Anglo Pacific in March, my boxes got held up at customs as they were put on a container with other people belongings so it took me 2 months to get my 14 boxes however nothing was damaged or lose. They were great with communication and it cost me around 1000 including up to 3000 insurance.
