Bishop’s Move vs Uni Baggage – How Do They Compare?

If you’re thinking of relocating for business or for personal reasons, one of the most important things you need to consider is the transportation of your personal belongings from point A to point B. It’s no easy feat – especially if you’re emigrating overseas. International removals companies are designed take care of the hard work for you.

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 Bishop’s Move, to help you decide which option best suits your needs for your relocation.

About Bishop’s Move

Bishop’s Move is the largest family owned removals firm in the UK, providing home and business removals and storage services throughout the UK as well as internationally.

Traditional International Removals Companies

Traditional international removals companies offer shipping services 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.

Removals companies are the perfect option if you need a stress-free way of transporting particularly bulky items, such as furniture or perhaps even your car. All in all, they can help to make your relocation run as smoothly as possible – especially if you’re travelling with your family in tow. However, traditional movers may not work for everyone, especially when considering the costs and long transit times involved. That’s where we come in…

Uni Baggage

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.

For those on a tighter relocation budget, it may be a much more cost-effective option to sell, donate, or giveaway large, bulky items (such as furniture, i.e sofas and beds) and ship only the most essential belongings with Uni Baggage in a few boxes and suitcases.

How do transit times differ?

When it comes to transporting your personal belongings to your new home, for many people, speed will be a top priority. It’s important to make yourself aware how transit times can differ depending on the scale of your move and the type of shipping you choose.

How do costs differ?

The scale of your move and the type of service you choose will ultimately determine the cost. Sea freight, although the slowest method of transportation, tends to be the most affordable option. However, even then, you could be looking at upwards of £2,000 – for just some pieces of furniture and personal items, nevermind your entire house contents.

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 offer 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.
