Household furniture and antique international removals

Rapid Shipping is a trusted name in the removals industry, particularly when it comes to art and antiques. We are known for our expertise in shipping these delicate items safely to overseas destinations. What sets us apart is our careful attention to detail when packing your precious items. We take great care to pack all items at your premises to ensure safe transit. To provide additional protection, most items are then packed into foam-lined wooden shipping cases. Even smaller pieces are not overlooked and are first packed into triple-strength export boxes which are then packed out with Styrofoam chips.

Rapid Shipping also understands the value of precious metals such as silver and ensures that they are not tarnished during the removal process by using acid-free tissue paper. You can trust Rapid Shipping to handle your valuable household furniture with the same level of care and attention.

Why choose Rapid Shipping for international removals?

Expert packing services

We are pleased to offer a complete packing service provided by our dedicated export packing teams. Our team will expertly pack all smaller items into export-strength boxes and wrap all furniture using our market-leading furniture export-wrapping blankets. For those with smaller shipments, we also offer a ‘self-packed’ service to help reduce the overall cost of removals. If you are considering packing your items, please refer to our helpful guide to packing your goods for international removals.

Insurance cover

To ensure peace of mind, we provide comprehensive Marine Transit insurance to protect your furniture and effects from the day of collection until the final delivery at your residence. If you are working on a tight budget, we also offer a ‘loss and theft’ insurance cover that can help save you money.

Bespoke transportation services

Since every international removal is unique, we recommend that you contact one of our helpful international removal consultants in advance to discuss your specific requirements. This will allow us to provide a tailored quotation that meets your exact needs.
