Mr Shifter is a family run business, for over 30 years our aim has been to become the premier removals company for London and the North East. Our team will work hard to ensure your goods are packed and handled safely. This extends to both our local and international clients.

We have been instrumental in countless, commercial, domestic and office moves for the last 30 years. All our staff put your needs and the safety of your goods as paramount.

Our business would not exist without the consistent and positive feedback we receive from each and everyone one of our local and international clients.

We have a range of options to coordinate your next international move based on both the size of your job and the budget you are working towards.


This is by far the quickest, though most expensive form of transport for your international move. Your goods are packed into containers that are then loaded into specifically designed aircraft’s for your goods to be flown directly to the most local commercial airport for your destination. At the other end, the containers are then loaded from the aircraft directly onto a local removals vehicle and delivered directly to your residence.

Road train

This is the next most time efficient method of removals. Your goods are packed into the removals truck. The truck is then sealed, and the team are dispatched directly to your residence. This method can take up to 1-2 weeks depending on where in the world the goods are going to, but your moves manager will give you an expected time frame for delivery.

Sea freight

Our most cost-effective option for international removals. This means of delivery can take 5-6 weeks to allow for the containers to be loaded and arrive at the relevant ports. These can be done as either a specific load for your removal, allowing you exclusive use of the container. Or, if you are looking to streamline your budget, the containers can be catalogued in one of our groupage schemes.

Safe and Secure International Removals & Relocation

Our International Removals service is not only safe and secure but extremely fast. Over the last 30 years we have developed excellent relationships with trade exporters meaning we are able to ship your goods on the next shipping, often within the same week if required.

We also provide you with a dedicated Overseas Removals Specialist who will project manage your International Move. They will be vastly experienced in this sector and will explain exactly what you need to do and what we will be doing throughout the whole process. They will be your port of call should you have any queries or questions and will ensure that your goods get to where they need to be safely, securely and on time.

Our success is built around the fact that we are an understanding family business meaning we are large enough to cope with any of your removal needs but small enough to understand what is important to your individual removal.
