How student shipping works

We work with removal companies that specialise in international shipping from the UK to a range of destinations worldwide. Once you’ve completed our quick and easy form, you’ll be matched with up to 6 trusted and insured international removal companies to help with your student shipping.

You’ll have to let them know the nature and number of items that need shipping and the type of shipping you need. They’ll let you know your options, which typically include sea freight, air freight, road freight or part-load. The type of shipping you’ll need will depend on the destination country and the volume of items you’re shipping.

The companies will reach out to you so you can discuss your student move in more detail. You can then take your pick from the companies based on your requirements, their quotes and the packing services they can provide.

Shipping your belongings overseas for university

Moving your personal belongings to a new country can be challenging, whether that’s by aeroplane, boat or train. Often airlines will have a student baggage allowance which runs the risk of having to pay for excess baggage fees. You can rest assured with Compare My Move’s international removal companies that your items will arrive safely and be delivered door to door.

Transporting your laptop, books and clothes across the globe doesn’t have to be difficult. We partner with professional companies that can pack and move your items to wherever you need them. Your belongings will be professionally packed and moved by one of our trusted international companies and can be delivered directly to your university accommodation.

If you’re an international student in the UK, our international shipping companies can also help you send your items back home. Just fill out our quick and easy form and let the movers know exactly what you need.

International student storage

Compare My Move can also help connect you with international student storage providers. If you’re coming to study in the UK, using self-storage is an ideal way to save money on moving costs. Student accommodation is notoriously on the smaller side, so storing some of your larger or personal items in storage means you don’t have to pay for a bigger flat. You can access your belongings at any time, saving you space and money.

Using student storage also helps if you’re visiting family during the holiday period and leaving your valuable items in your accommodation. You can rest assured knowing your items will be secured in safe and dry units with 24/7 CCTV monitoring.
