Removals Transit Modes

Which Excess International Movers transit mode should you choose when sending your belongings overseas - air freight, sea freight or road freight? Well, the main considerations are always urgency, destination and budget.

Air Freight

Air freight is by far the fastest and most convenient - but costs rather more than the other modes.
With air freight you can leave everything in Excess International Movers’ experienced hands, avoid disruptions to work or holidays, and save on expensive airport hotel bills and travel costs.
Excess International's air freight rates are competitive; choose from our full Door to Door or economical Door to Destination Airport services.
Remember that for some destinations it may cost you less to use air freight - even for larger quantities.

Sea Freight - Container Shipping

Sea freight is the cost-effective way to send your baggage. However, in comparison with air freight it is somewhat slow - so be sure to allow plenty of time for delivery.
And when you choose a sea freight company, be certain it's Excess International Movers - because our carriers are the most reputable, reliable and offering regular sailings to numerous destinations worldwide.
Rest assured that security is our top priority. Your possessions will travel in a strong, sealed shipping container, and can be covered throughout the journey by a comprehensive Shipment Protection policy.
