We used upakweship and it was seamless. They delivered a pallet to our home that we loaded. We had our boxes in the garage and just place them on the box provided with the pallet and wrapped it/ strapped it up. It was also very cost effective. I think we paid $1500 for a 100 cf pallet. Our stuff arrived in about 8 weeks when we were still in corporate housing. They stored it for us for £26 per week until we found our flat. They then delivered it when we asked them to. We did think they would provide someone to unload it, but we were wrong. No big deal, I unloaded it myself. Our stuff was in great shape, nothing was broken, everything was dry. It’s a little bit of work but I can recommend it, especially for the price. http://www.upakweship.com/

Seven Seas Worldwide

Same door to door service as above. They delivered a pallet to us. We packed it while the driver waited. They delivered to our door in Edinburgh.

We shipped around 125 cubic feet and paid $1700 to move from California to Edinburgh. Note that it’s a little bit more expensive to ship from the West Coast than East Coast.

I don't have my shipment yet since it was just picked up in the US at the end of March, but I used upakweship and so far it has been a great experience. They make stuff pretty seamless. I need to wait to see how delivery goes, but thus far, I've been happy with them.
