Removals To Finland

Are you intending a long term or permanent move to Finland? If you're packing up all your things to relocate internationally, then all your personal items will need to be shipped to the new country. What's the best way of planning this complex process? We'll take a look at how you should approach your international move and have a smooth trip to Finland.

Choosing your removals partner

The best thing you can do to ensure a smooth relocation is finding a removal firm that's reliable and has all the right background to reassure you. Be wary of sales reps who offer a quote that seems remarkably low, or one that asks for the entire payment up front. A firm that requests a significant portion of the fee as an initial deposit should also be treated with suspicion. There are accreditation schemes for removals firms that can also provide reassurance. We recommend you choose a service that has membership of the British Association of Removers Overseas Group. This means your advance payment will be covered by a guarantee, so if the firm goes bust while your goods are in transit, your deposit remains safe. This body also insists on certain professional standards, so membership is a sign of a quality service.

Another accredited scheme governing removals to Finland and other overseas locations is called the Fédération Internationale des Déménageurs Internationaux (FIDI). This is a worldwide network of movers that provide a high professional standard, so it's a guarantee of service. You'll also find it helpful to check online reviews by other customers when you're looking for a removals partner.

Hiring the moving firm

Always ask your removal company for a written quote before engaging them. Good questions to ask include what their loss rate is (i.e. what percentage of goods are lost in transit). Also, check whether they have sufficient insurance to cover all your belongings during the shipping process to their full value.

Preparing for your move to Finland

If the company you use offers a packing service, it's usually a good idea to take advantage of this. It will help you during the stressful move period and it may also help you get the right damage cover from your company if they are responsible for packing all the items. It's best to leave it to the experts as they will have the right knowledge on how to protect your goods in transit. They'll also provide all the packing materials, so that's one less thing for you to worry about. If you do decide to do your own packing, leave plenty of time so that you don't miss the removals date and have a stressful departure.

It can take between three and four months for your goods to join you at your destination, depending on where they started from. If you are shipping by sea, expect the longest wait for your items. Air transport is faster but you always need to assume delays due to strikes or bad weather, things that your packing company will have no influence over.

Moving all your possessions to Finland can be a complicated process, but you can make it easier on yourself by following these steps and trying not to cut corners.

Who Will Carry Out My Delivery?

Whoever you choose! There are thousands of rated transport providers on our platform ready to make a bid to carry out your delivery. It is up to you to decide which quote to accept.

When Will I Receive A Quote?

You will typically start to receive quotes within 30 minutes. If you are worried about the lack of quotes, try adding some more detail to your listing as transport providers may be unsure of dimensions or weight and feel unable to provide an accurate quote. If your delivery is urgent, you can try our 'featured delivery' feature which moves your listing to the top of the search page for couriers.

How Many Quotes Will I Receive?

Whilst there is no guarantee of quotes, 98% of our listings receive at least 3 quotes, so you are likely to find someone who can undertake the delivery of your items.

Does Shiply Provide Packing Materials?

If your item requires packing materials or extra care then you should make sure this is highlighted in your listing and discussed with any transport provider whose quote you are considering. Couriers on Shiply are able to provide all levels of service and can help pack your items, just ensure you inform them of your needs.

Will My Goods Be Tied Up Securely?

Transport providers will almost always tie up an item in the transport vehicle, as the risk of damage from moving around during transit is high. You should always confirm safety precautions and packing needs with transport providers before accepting a quote.

Can Items Be Taken Upstairs?

Yes, items can be taken upstairs if needed, and can also be assembled. Transport providers on Shiply are happy to provide these services, but you should ensure that you are mentioning these requirements in your listings as it may mean a second person is required for the move.

Can I Travel With My Goods?

The majority of transport providers on Shiply are only insured for the transportation of goods, however, some are also able to take people. If you need to travel with your goods, make sure to mention this in your listing and highlight this to any courier who quotes on your listing.

What If I Need To Cancel My Booking?

If you have accepted a quote and paid the deposit but wish to cancel the delivery, then you should first inform your chosen transport provider that you no longer require the delivery. You should then contact us at to have your deposit refunded.

Can I Change The Address Of The Delivery?

If you have not yet accepted a quote then you are able to change the address of your listing. Note that editing details of your listing after publishing will result in active quotes being voided, so you will have to wait for new quotes to come in. If you have already accepted a quote and need to change the address, please let your transport provider know and contact us at .
