Transit methods for sending international removals to Japan

We’ll send your international removals to Japan either via sea freight or air freight. The best transit method for your move is entirely your choice. The most appropriate mode of transit for your international removals will depend on your budget, schedule, and destination.


Sending international removals to Japan via sea freight

Sea Freight is the most affordable way to ship your belongings to Japan. If you’re looking to keep moving costs down, this is the best option for doing so. As well as being the most affordable transit method, however, sea freight is also the slower of the two options.
The options when using sea freight are:

GRP: If you are shipping the contents of a small apartment, flat, a small office or even just large furniture items from your house – GRP is the best option for you. Your effects are stowed and secured within a shared container and you will only pay for the space your possessions occupy.

Full Container Load: FCL is the favoured option for those shipping an entire home or large work offices etc. You will be charged for a 20ft or 40ft container depending on the volume of your international removal.

Predicted Sea Freight Transit Time: 8 – 14 weeks


Sending international removals to Qatar via air freight

Air freight is the fastest way to move goods to Japan from the United Kingdom. Air freight removals costs are calculated on the total weight of your load so it is more expensive than sending by sea. It is best if you are sending minimal items of furniture, a one-bedroom apartment, or one or two specific rooms. When removals arrive at the end destination, there are a number of options for delivery or collection. These each vary in cost and transit time.

Predicted Air Freight Transit Time: 5-15 days
