From the first call to make enquiries and try to better understand costs and logistics, the team was first rate - all questions answered immediately and the quote on the basis of description alone was about as near as one could hope.
The process of physical removal through paperwork completion and landing our possessions in the US was seamless and without any unnecessary complications one might expect from such an undertaking.
I cannot recommend the company and its people highly enough if you face simple or complex moves. Friendly, efficient and above all else what I deem to be very good value for money.
After speaking to some other Agents and not being very enthused, we decided to get back onto 1st MI and at all times the staff were knowldegable and friendly and arranged for the vehicle to be shipped with only a couple of weeks notice. Would definitely recommend these to friends and colleagues, and use again if required - thanks to Andrew, Graeme et al. Greg S and Family
In this regard, I selected Autoshippers International Car Shipping. I can't imagine having made a better decision. Roy Hayball and Andrew Denyard were extremely helpful. They were well versed in all aspects
concerning shipping, quick to answer my many questions and explain options available to me, patient and most friendly to speak with. I'm grateful. Oh yes, the car's a beauty!
1st Move International came to our house and blitzed it in a few hours. Punctual, professional and polite collection guys. Frequent liaison from the office was very reassuring. Then we fly out and 2 weeks later get an email to say our consignment is on time and due in. Liaised with local agent, had customs rubber stamp it (although that does require a visit to the remote office (not too big a deal)). I arranged a removals company this end to collect from the customs warehouse and deliver to my front door.
All items pristine and conscientiously protected.
Job done. At a stressful time (family emigration), 1st Move International certainly took the stress out of that component.
BTW I researched a lot of companies and for what you get, their prices are very competitive.
All round good!
The man that picked it up from me in UK was lovely..and pretty hot!
It arrived in Oz the exact date they'd informed me. Then put me in touch with a company who could arrange all the customers malarky. Who then helped transport it up to me 6000km away from the port. So all round super!
The cost to ship it over with this company was real good, but i was shocked about how much i had to pay for the customs, that was my bad though, should have done my home work!
I recently moved from the UK to New Zealand. I got a number of quotes for shipping some household goods. In the end I decided to go with 1st move as I found them helpful on the phone and they came in average to the others in price.
Once hired I found the team helpful and they answered all of my little and big questions so that I was comfortable through the entire process. My goods have all arrived in the condition that they were packed in. Which some I packed myself and others I had the company do professionally.
I thought the team were quick and efficient and I would definatley recommend them.
The only bit I was unsure about was the organisation of the agent on the otherside (New Zealand) as there was no contact prior to picking up and shipping of my goods.
However the agents in New Zealand were also helpful, quick and efficient even though there were strikes in the ports over here.
Thanks again to all the team, it helped make our move much easier.
I had a great experience with Ist Move – an 8000Km move by van, boat and train. What did the success of the move consist of? Firstly, everything getting there in one piece! But also the brilliant bedside manner of all the people I dealt with on the phone and in person. Polite, fun, personable and professional. But most important, they were tolerant and patient with my high level of anxiety!
I had a fabulous experience with this company! Amazing, friendly, and attentive customer service from start to finish. All my various needs and requests were handled promptly and professionally, and they really went the extra mile to ensure everything was handled the way I wanted it to be.
Moving countries can be a hassle, but it really felt seamless this time!!
I would highly recommend this company to anyone!
Just want to say thanks for your help and efficiency in shipping my personal effects to Boston from the UK.
I unpacked all the goods yesterday and they were very well wrapped indeed – this is my fifth international move and your guys did an excellent job of not only securely packing delicate objects but also using the space efficiently to minimise excess bulk. It was a smooth operation from start to finish.
To be honest I thought the service was awful.
I have ended up paying over three times the amount of what I budgeted for the shipment, and only have the advice of the team to blame for this, and the fact that the measurement process is so vague and done too late in the process for you to do anything about it. I was told that the removal men were border line retarded and that they asked family to help pack goods that were specifically listed as insurance items, so required ‘professional’ packing. They failed to advise properly on the costs involved on collection of goods and the partner organisation (in Australia) have got to be one of the least helpful and rudest companies I’ve ever dealt with.
All in all I’d say the service was diabolical, I would not recommend them to my worst enemy. Might look cheap in comparison, but expect to pay first rate costs for third rate service service.
I have now used 1st Move to ship my personal belongings to Canada for the third time (surely a record of some sort!) Service was as usual cost-effective, efficient and friendly. Particularly impressed this time as had to organize from abroad. Everything arrived amazingly packed and intact. Highly, highly recommended!
We are living in New Zealand and needed to ship some items that we purchased on line in the UK.
1t move international took a lot of stress out of the process and ensured our items arrived, at the stated time, intact and undamaged.
We were kept informed at every stage of the process and felt very comfortable with the information provided.
The competative pricing also meant that it was cost effective to personnally import new goods from the UK.
I would highly recommend this company.
Thanks to all the team at 1st move
