Moving Home

Whether you’ve booked your main move with GMS or not, we can assist with getting your essentials to your new home for when you arrive.

International Removals can often take a while from start to finish, especially if moving across the Globe, but sometimes there are things that you simply can’t wait for.

Often people find themselves choosing between items to take in their luggage and items to put in their shipment, but with GMS you need not choose. Unlike the airline you may travel with, GMS won’t limit you to the amount of luggage or equipment that you need to send. Whatever you can’t live without, we can get it there.

Going on holiday

Keen Skier? Avid Scuba-Diver? Ameteur Golfer?

Too often people can’t enjoy their holiday to the fullest as they’re unable to transport the necessary equipment to and from their holiday destinations without facing extortionate charges. Whether it’s just a pair of skis or individual golf bags for the whole family, GMS can assist for a reasonable price.

With GMS you can book a tracked 2-way transport to ensure that everything you need to make the most of your break is there on arrival and returned safely to you when you get home.

Travelling for work or a business event

Whether booking for yourself, a colleague or a client, GMS can provide you with a truly professional and cost effective service.

We understand that work often doesn’t stop, and as such can arrange advanced arrival of your belongings for business trips and short stays.

We can cater for larger groups and even events, including display materials that need to arrive short notice.

All services can be booked as a return transportation and are tracked for your peace of mind.
