My husband and I used Transatlantic Shipping for our recent move from Preston, Lancashire to Seattle, WA USA. We contacted a number of shipping companies and Transatlantic Shipping Ltd won our business with their combination of great value and excellent customer Service. Glyn Windsor, owner of Transatlantic Shipping Ltd was so helpful answering our many questions no matter how often we phoned. (Which was numerous times, as this being our first time ever using a shipping service). She explained all aspects of the costs, she gave us lots of advice on how to pack, told us what would happen once the goods arrived, told us what the different options were for clearing customs - she even talked to us about how to contact the airlines about taking our dog with us. Everything came through just fine except for a couple of pieces of glassware that wasn’t in a hard sided box, (Which was pretty much our fault as Glyn had explained how to pack everything.) so I would definitely recommend Transatlantic Shipping Ltd (Hence this shipping testimonial) for anyone who wants a company that communicates really well and delivers great value for money. And be sure to pack the way Glyn tells you to!
I recently shipped from England to Saskatoon, Canada. They arrived in perfect condition 5 weeks to the day from when they were picked up at my former home in Pickering. All I had to do was go to Customs and have them cleared from bond here in Saskatoon. Glyn Windsor provided outstanding service in arranging pickup and shipment, advising me what could and could not be shipped overseas, and being all around helpful. Time taken for delivery to the city of my choice was as good as any other company offered, and none of them could deliver closer than 400 miles away, necessitating an extra delivery charge. All this was done at a cost better than any other company I contacted was able to offer. Absolutely superb.
Glyn has helped me with all the process of the shipping my items to Libya. She is great, she managed to bring a truck to my place to pick up all of my items. I recommend you to have Transatlantic Line (UK) to ship your items.
Hi. They were absolutely wonderful, Glyn helped us through a very stressful time throughout our long removal process. All inquiries were answered promptly in a most friendly yet professional manner. We were extremely satisfied with all aspects of our move with Transatlantic Line (UK) Ltd and would recommend your company to others, in fact have done so already. Thanks again,
