Moving to Ireland might seem a bit like shipping coal to Newcastle considering the various waves of Irish immigration over the past two centuries. However, in recent years the Republic of Ireland has become somewhat of a shining light in the worlds of IT and finance, with many well known multinationals taking advantage of generous tax concessions to set up regional and global headquarters in Dublin. Whilst it has been well documented that the global financial crisis savaged the Irish economy, resulting in massive property value write downs and employment layoffs, the Irish economy appears to have recovered strongly and has cemented its place as one of the fastest growing countries in Europe. Indeed the recent decision by the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, may result in Dublin gaining further traction as an alternative financial centre and banking base to London.
King & Wilson has an excellent local partner network in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. We are able to offer consolidated sea freight options for smaller sized moves into all Republic and Northern Ireland towns and cities via Belfast.
We have the people, processes and infrastructure to make your move stress-free. Here's how it works:
On the scheduled moving day, we arrive at your home to carefully pack your belongings into specially designed international removal cartons. We also disassemble, wrap, itemise and prepare your furniture to export standards.
A detailed and descriptive customs export packing list is compiled and your packed belongings are loaded and secured into an appropriate shipping line container, transferred to our warehouse for weighing, security sealing and reporting. The container is then transported to the port and onto the vessel for international sailing.
Our experienced move coordinators will ensure all of your necessary shipping documentation is checked and in order to facilitate prompt customs clearance into your destination country. You will be provided with password protected access to our key date tracking system so you can monitor the progress of your shipment as well as a direct link to the shipping line container tracking and/or airline consignment tracing web pages.
We arrange customs clearance of your shipment, collection of the container from the destination port and the delivery of your belongings to your international residence - unpacking the cartons, re-assembling and placing all furniture items to your satisfaction and disposing of any packing debris and mess.
We pride ourselves on providing you with as much assistance as you need to make your move stress free. Should you require it, we can arrange:
- Storage of your belongings at either end of your move
