Anglo Pacific vs Uni Baggage – How Do They Compare?

When it comes to planning your relocation, one of the most important factors to consider is how to transport all of your belongings from point A to point B in a way that best suits the scale of your move and, of course, your budget. It’s certainly no easy feat, especially if you’re moving abroad – perhaps even to the other side of the world. Thankfully, there are numerous international removals options out there, all designed to aid your relocation.

In this post, we’re detailing how Uni Baggage – a worldwide, door to door luggage shipping service – compares to traditional international removals companies, such as Anglo Pacific, to help you decide which option best suits your needs for your relocation.

About Anglo Pacific

Anglo Pacific is one of the UK’s largest international overseas moving companies, offering traditional removals services within the UK, Europe and prominent locations worldwide.

Why Use Traditional International Removals Companies?

Traditional international removals companies help you to easily transport all of your worldly belongings from one destination to another, most commonly by means of sea freight, road freight, or air freight. With a range of service types available, you have the flexibility to choose the option that best suits your moving timescale and relocation budget.

Although costs can quickly mount up, there’s certainly no denying that traditional international removals companies are the perfect option if you need a reliable, stress-free way of transporting particularly bulky items, such as furniture or perhaps even your car.

The cost and timescale of shipping your belongings can vary greatly depending on the scale of your move. Many traditional international removals companies will offer convenient door to door collection and delivery services – though it is always worth noting that some may require you to arrange transportation of your belongings to and from ports.

All in all, removals companies can help to make your relocation run as smoothly as possible – especially if you’re travelling with your entire family in tow. However, here at Uni Baggage we understand that opting for traditional movers may not work for everyone, when considering the costs and long transit times involved. That’s where we come in…

How Does Uni Baggage Compare?

Uni Baggage offers a brand new approach to international removals. With our fast and affordable door to door shipping services, we can offer a more feasible way of transporting your items to your new home, whether just across the water or other side of the world.

All things considered, relocating is an undeniably expensive process for many reasons. Uni Baggage allows you to cut your costs in one area, at least. For those on a tighter relocation budget, it may be a much more cost-effective option to sell or donate most of their large items (such as furniture) and ship only their most essential belongings with us.

How do transit times differ?

At Uni Baggage, we understand that when it comes to transporting your personal belongings to your your new home, speed is undoubtedly a top priority. The last thing you want is to be left without your most important essentials for weeks – maybe even months.

In comparison to traditional international movers, which in some cases could take months for your belongings to arrive – with Uni Baggage, you don’t have to worry about waiting.

How do costs differ?

The cost of traditional international removals services can vary greatly depending on the scale of your move and the type of service that you choose. Container shipping via sea freight, although the slowest method of transportation, tends to be the most affordable method – however, even then, you could be looking at upwards of £2,000 – and that’s just some pieces of furniture and personal items, nevermind your entire house contents.

Air freight is even more costly still. As this type of shipping is typically priced by weight and volume, it’s very easy for costs to quickly mount up, even if only sending a small amount.

As mentioned before, a much more cost effective option for many people would be to sell, donate or giveaway any unwanted large, bulky items and ship only the most essential items with Uni Baggage. And we’re not just affordable – our convenient services offers fantastic value for money, too. We offer a huge 30kg/66lb weight allowance per item and our prices start from just £16.99 within the UK, £76 to the USA and £117 to Australia.
