Shipping furniture

Excess International is one of the most trusted furniture shipping companies in the UK.


Our furniture shippers can send everything from a bedside cabinet, sofa, dining table, dressing table, chest of drawers, to beds and wardrobes. We’re even experts in shipping antique furniture.

Our shipping is affordable as well as simple. Our furniture shipping quotes are tailored to individual needs, based on the size of the load and the chosen shipping method:

Less Container Load: If you are shipping small quantities of furniture, LCL is the best option for you. Furniture is placed and secured within a shared container, and you will only be required to pay for the space your furniture consumes within this container.

Full Container Load: If you are shipping a whole home load or many big and bulky items of furniture, FCL will be the recommended shipping method for you. You will receive a 20ft or 40ft container for your sole use to fill how you wish. You will be charged based on the size of the shipping container.
