The cost of shipping is all dependent upon how much you need to ship, and how far. Read up on all you need to know about international shipping to your chosen country.

Shipping Container Costs to United Kingdom

There are two options when it comes to shipping your belongings to the UK, by air or by sea. Which one you choose will be dependent on what’s more important to you, saving time or saving money.

Shipping to the UK by air

International shipping by air will save you time, but it limits what you can bring and also comes with a hefty price tag (see diagram above).

As a general rule the contents of a one-bed flat is the max you can ship by air, so if you don’t have that much stuff this could be the shipping choice for you. Shipping by air is also approximately 4 - 5x more expensive, so if your shipment is not time-sensitive you may want to consider shipping by sea.

Shipping to the UK by sea

A byproduct of being an island nation is having over 100 different seaports to choose from. Saying that, you probably won’t have to choose as shipping companies will usually arrange door-to-door transfers for you - but make sure to check this with your provider!

Shipping by sea means the opportunity to bring a lot more with you, for a cheaper price - win win! The compromise will come on time, which can take up to 10x longer, dependent on where you’re shipping from. See more specific costs for your journey in the diagram above.
