Services for International Cargo to the UK

Schumacher Cargo UK has been handling international shipments to the UK from the USA, and vice versa, for over three decades.

Our UK shipping services frequent the port of Felixstowe, as Schumacher UK's office is located in Suffolk, England. Felixstowe is the UK's busiest port for containerized cargo.

The vast majority of shipments to England, Wales and Scotland are shipped here and this is also the port for services from the UK to one of our 5 US locations.

**Southampton and Tilbury are also available as port options depending on sail schedules and shipments.

If you are going to be shipping internationally to the region of the UK in Northern Ireland, we can freight your cargo to Dublin which will eliminate having to transship across the UK.

The country is a large market and we have specialized in moving household goods and shipping vehicles for the past thirty years. Each year, we make more than 1,200 shipments to cities across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Schumacher's international shipping services to the UK frequent multiple port cities each year:

Aberdeen Belfast Cardiff
Dublin Dover Grimsby
Ipswich Hull Liverpool
London Southampton  

What Are You Shipping Overseas?

Whether you need to move your family from the U.S to London or have your Harley Davidson shipped to Belfast, the dedicated professionals at Schumacher will help you with any questions you may have regarding your shipment.

In addition to motorcycles and household goods/home relocation, we offer car shipping to major cities, overseas boat and yacht transport and also removal services. Our international shipping services to the UK even cover pet transportation and relocation.

Shipping Costs

International shipping rates for the UK will range depending on the contents of your shipment, which U.S port the ship is leaving from and where your goods are headed in the UK.

Cargo leaving from our international shipping locations on the east coast will have a lower rate than from our warehouse in Houston or Los Angeles (other factors aside). If you need a quote for shipping goods overseas to a location in the United Kingdom, we offer a few options. You can:
