How we move your items to Malta

We offer three transit methods to get your belongings from the UK to Malta – road freight, sea freight and air freight. The option you choose is dependant on many factors, such as your location in Malta, the urgency of which you need the goods, and your budget.

Road freight

We will pack and load your belongings in the UK, onto a road vehicle which will then transport them to your chosen location in Malta.

This method is the most cost effective. The price is determined by your overall volume of goods.

  • Exclusive container load: Your goods will be transported via their own container. Your items will reach your destination faster.
  • Shared container load: Your goods will be transported via a shared container, containing other customers goods heading for Malta. This option is very cost effective, as you only pay for the space you use, but it may take longer for the container to arrive at your destination.

Sea freight

We will pack and collect your goods in the UK, and take them to the port, where they will be put on a container ship heading for Malta. When in Malta, our team will arrange their collection and delivery.

We offer four container options when using sea freight:

  • Fuller container load: Your goods will be transported via their own, exclusive container. This method is the most direct and your items will reach their destination faster. We recommend this option if you require your goods urgently or are moving a large amount to your new destination.
  • Less container load: Your goods will be transported via a shared container. The space in the container will be split between you and another customer, who will also be shipping their goods to Malta. This option may take longer, due to the fact that the consolidation of goods being transported is subject to the freight forwarder. This is a more economical option, as you only pay for the space you use.
  • Groupage: Your goods will be transported via a shared container, alongside other customers belongings which are going to Malta. This option is not subject to the freight forwarder. The transit time of your goods may be long, since there is a period of consolidation at our warehouse, before the consignment is sent to the shipping line. This option is economical as you only pay for the area your goods take up. We recommend this option if your volume of goods is less than full container load.
  • Baggage: This option is only for transporting your personal belongings, and must not include furniture. The consolidation of your goods must only require one man to carry it. This is a lower cost method for shipping your personal effects.

Air freight

We will pack and load your goods in the UK, and transport them to the airport where they will be put on a plane heading to Malta. When they have arrived in Malta, our team will organise their pick up and delivery. We provide multiple collection and delivery options for you to choose from.

Air freight is the fastest transit method of moving goods from the UK to Malta.

The cost of air freight is calculated by the total weight of your load, therefore is the most expensive option. This option is recommended when moving your small, urgent belongings.
