Smaller consignments will be sent as a part / shared load. With a part load you are sharing part of a large shipping container with other customers and pay only for the space you require. please see picture below . All your items will be kept separately and inventoried.

We do advise that you try and keep a full day clear for your removal in the event of any unexpected delays.
Larger moves e.g., full house may require a sole use container. This is a container to be used exclusively with your goods. If there are no access restrictions the crew will load the container at your residence over a 2-4 day period depending on the size of your required container .
