The World is Your Oyster

moving overseas

You’re making a huge life change and moving to another country. Whether it be for love, work or to satisfy your appetite for adventure we understand it’s a big deal. We also know that some customers may need to transport only a few boxes whilst others have full homes that must be relocated. That’s where McCarthy’s International Removals service come in!

We have been helping customers with moves abroad for more than 40 years and guarantee we know the score and have seen and dealt with it all before. Whether that be how to pack your items correctly, navigate never ending customs or work through the red tape, we will handle it for you. All you need to worry about is exploring your new neighbourhood and settling in to an exciting chapter of your life.

Whilst moving to a different country can be more difficult than staying within the UK, we work tirelessly to make the move as easy as possible through careful planning and research. From the moment a customer gets in touch to discuss their relocation our international moving consultants are on hand to give advice on packing, insurance, customs regulations, storage and much more. We then create a bespoke schedule produced with each individual customer’s needs in mind. Following this our consultants work with McCarthy’s trusted partners abroad to ensure your items make it through customs safely and arrive at your new location with no issues.

We ship full containers to most international destinations and McCarthy’s operate regular groupage shipping containers also known as part load. A part load service combines customers loads with others going to the same destination in order to fill a container or vehicle. This option is perfect for those with a smaller amount to move, it’s also great value for money! We ship to:

  • Australia
  • USA
  • Canada
  • Canary Islands
  • Cyprus
  • Dubai & UAE
  • Malta
  • New Zealand
  • South Africa

McCarthy’s also specialise in overland international furniture removals to all European destinations. We have depots that are dedicated European Movers, for removals to:

  • France
  • Spain
  • Germany
  • Denmark
  • Norway
  • Sweden
  • Belgium
  • Italy
  • Ireland
  • Portugal
  • Bulgaria
  • Eastern Europe
  • Netherlands
  • Greece
  • Turkey

McCarthy’s and our partners are all members of the appropriate worldwide moving organisations. So wherever you’re making a move, make sure to think of us!


McCartheys were there to take much of the stress out of what was a very difficult time for myself and my family.All the staff were patient and understanding of our dilemma and did all they could to help.
The storage facilities were safe and very secure with easy access .
All in all a painless experience.
Would highly recommend.

5 Stars

Really friendly and helpful customer service and explained everything clearly. Easy to reserve and new facility in York seems well secured and easy to access, with handy equipment to use (particularly with extended hours - at additional cost). Only minor comment for improvement during these times would be to have sanitise stations near the keypads as these are touch points for everyone using the facility.

5 Stars

Really good service and nice units. Easy access, great location, nothing to fault
