Britannia Movers vs Uni Baggage – How Do They Compare?

When it comes to relocating, one of the most important things you need to figure out is how to best transport all of your belongings from point A to point B. It’s certainly no easy feat, especially when you’re moving overseas. Thankfully, removals companies are there to take care of the hard work for you – you just have to choose one that suits your needs.

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 Britannia Movers, to help you decide which option best suits you for your relocation.

About Britannia Movers

Britannia Movers is a UK based international packing and removals company, providing removals throughout the UK, to the UK, and to various destinations all across the world.

Traditional International Removals Companies

Traditional international removals companies typically give you the flexibility to choose the shipping method that best suits the scale of your relocation, your moving timescale and relocation budget – whether it be shipping by sea freight, road freight or air freight.

Traditional international removals companies provide a stress-free way of transporting all of your belongings to your new home, particularly unconventionally large 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 whole family in tow. However, traditional movers may not work for everyone, especially when considering the costs and exceptionally long transit times often involved. That’s where we come in…

Uni Baggage

Uni Baggage offers a brand new approach to international removals. For those on a tighter relocation budget, it may be a much more cost-effective option to sell, donate or giveaway any unwanted large, bulky items and ship only the most essential belongings.

Uni Baggage offers fast, reliable and affordable door to door shipping services, giving you a much more feasible way of transporting your worldly belongings to your new home.

What Can I Send?

With Uni Baggage, you can ship your personal effects in suitcases, boxes, or even a mixture of both. You can also send typically large or oversized items, such as musical instruments and sporting equipment. However, they must be appropriately packaged.

Full Online Tracking

From the moment you place your booking, Uni Baggage will keep you updated until the moment your items arrive safe and sound. As well, to give you that extra peace of mind, we provide full online tracking to allow you to monitor the status of your shipment.

How do transit times differ?

Transit times can vary greatly with traditional international removals, depending on the scale of your move and, of course, the type of shipping. It’s important to make yourself aware of how transit times can differ, as well as how they can compare to Uni Baggage.

How do costs differ?

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

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.
