Moving overseas

Moving overseas need not be a daunting process provided you have one of the most experienced international removals companies to assist you.

At Dolphin we have been providing an overseas moving service for over 20 years and have built up extensive experience of moving people from the UK to Europe and further afield, as well as helping people move back to the UK.

Home Survey

Our overseas moving service begins with a free home survey in which our experienced and professional surveyors will view and discuss with you all items to be removed or stored. Drawing on our experience and industry expertise, our team will discuss with you the various shipping options available, and what best suits your requirements.


Following our home survey we will provide you with a detailed quotation. Alternatively, we can provide this via the telephone or our online quote form.

Packing and Loading

We can provide a full packing and loading service using our own team of packers and porters who are specially trained in the latest packing techniques and use only the best and strongest packing materials.

Where export packing is required, packing begins the day before the move, using a wide range of different size cartons and protective materials to suit each item. We pay particular attention to fragile items such artworks, antiques, grandfather clocks, glass display cabinets, and so on and if necessary will build bespoke timber crates for specific items.


If you are not ready to receive your goods immediately, we offer short and long term containerised storage for the interim period. Should you require this service your shipment will be held at our secure warehouse until you require it to be shipped.

Delivery & Unloading

Once your shipment has arrived at its destination we will contact you to arrange a time and date for delivery and unpacking. We then unload and unpack, positioning items in your preferred rooms. Finally, we remove and dispose of all packing materials and debris.

Transit Insurance

Dolphin Movers offers Total Loss or All Risks Insurance designed to insure household goods, personal effects, antiques, fine arts and motor vehicles. Please contact us for the appropriate insurance cover.
