How Did We Get Here?
The company was first established over 20 years ago and it’s main business then was acting as a professional Freight Forwarding Company working for some of the UK’s smallest and largest exporters in the process of shipping their hard won export orders.
In 1996 the company was asked to relocate a member of staff for one of our commercial clients who had taken up a position as export sales director for their new
offices in Kuwait. We were happy to oblige. Our experience in shipping commercial goods had taught us a few lessons. Great packing is essential!
Ensuring goods are safely and securely packed simply minimises the risks involved when shipping overseas. It is the bedrock of any international move. This is one aspect of the moving process over which we have full control and getting it right, first time, is essential for a stress free move.
A happy customer indeed, his goods arrived on time, and intact and from this first shipment over 15 years ago 1st Move has grown from strength to strength and remains the UK’s top, privately owned and independant international removals company.
From the very first contact with our client in the UK to final delivery to the client overseas, it is the forwarders role to ensure the export process runs smoothly and efficiently.
Our expertise includes indepth knowledge of customs formalites and all the neccessary paperwork involved in getting your goods, whetehr they are commercial or personal, overseas. Quickly, efficiently, safe and Secure.
And ideally on the next available ship. We do not hang around !
