The United Kingdom is a unitary state governed under a constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary system. The United Kingdom has its seat of government in the capital city of London. The United Kingdom is a country in its own right and consists of four countries. These are England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. There are three devolved administrations, each with varying powers, based in Belfast, Edinburgh and Cardiff which are the capitals of Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.

The team at Allied Pickfords can assist you with preparing all of your items for your move overseas. We ensure that we take responsibility for the safety of your belongings and have the appropriate resources and materials required.
Our team of international removalists are professionally trained in wrapping and packing techniques in preparing your items for international transportation. Our international wrapping material offers the ultimate protection for your furniture and is designed to protect the items for their long journey ahead.
Moving overseas always presents risks, especially when travelling long distances across the ocean. There are circumstances outside of our direct control when moving overseas and why the team at Allied Pickfords recommend considering our International Transit insurance.
In the unlikely event your furniture or home contents are affected, Allied Pickfords offers a comprehensive transit and storage insurance solution for household moves and can provide you with a comprehensive “New for Old” cover. Ask our team for a copy of Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) so you can consider the most appropriate level of cover that best suits your needs.
Many clients may not want to move all of their effects overseas and is why we offer a short or long term storage for those clients moving overseas. With our international network of over 600 locations around the world you can store your goods safely in Australia or in the UK.
We place all of your furniture into our storage modules which are designed to allow the furniture to breathe, and are also dust-proof and vermin-proof. All items placed into storage will be listed on an inventory list, then packed and moved to a designated Allied Pickfords storage facility and placed into a secure storage environment.
The team at Allied Pickfords understand that cars can be an important factor should you be considering an international relocation. Many clients have a unique bond with their pride and joy and as the UK drive on the same side we do in Australia then it is always a consideration depending on the affinity you have with your car!
Returning or foreign citizens may import a vehicle duty free into the UK, provided that the vehicle has been owned and used overseas for over six months prior to Importation and the owner has lived outside the UK for at least 12 months and is moving their normal home to the UK. Any vehicle must comply with UK standards.
It is important to speak with one of our move consultants about the process as rules and regulations are subject to change and will vary at times depending on the individual circumstance.
Moving to United Kingdom can be a stressful experience when leaving family and friends behinds. The team at Allied Pickfords understand that Pets can also be part of the extended family and a major consideration when moving overseas.
Pets are permitted entry into the United Kingdom, but will be subject to the following:
- Pet must be micro-chipped
- Rabies vaccination – compulsory after micro chip
- Blood test – to check on rabies vaccination after set period
- Tapeworm treatment (for Dogs only)
- Third Country Veterinary certificate
- Arrange travel through an authorised route
- Quarantine period may be compulsory
As regulations can often change we always would recommend that you speak to your Allied Pickfords move consultants to ensure we can refer you to an approved pet specialist in this area.
