Moving to UK

International Removals to the UK from Australia

Making the move to the Motherland is a mixed bag process. On one hand, it’s definitely one of the easiest countries for Australian’s to emigrate to, on the other... well it’s still an international move requiring visas, customs management and insurance, not to mention the actual move itself!

We’ve connected to a trusted network of removalists across the United Kingdom, from Aberdeen to Wokingham. This means that wherever you are located, you can rest assured that your Chess Moving consultant will be close enough at hand to help you with any concerns. Our knowledgeable staff will give you the right advice and deliver on time, every time.

Chess Moving has more than 100 years of experience in moving people, and objects all around the world. Over the years, we’ve helped individuals and small business, as well as large corporations and government departments too.

Our people are the best in the business and we treat each move with care and attention to detail, because our brand and our reputation are built on trust.

We can organise vehicle relocation for cars, bikes and more through our network to ensure your beloved vehicle arrives in one piece and in top working order at your new home.


While you may not be concerned about your items if you’re just moving around the corner, insurance is essential for long distance moves, especially where there are ships, planes and trucks involved. We offer comprehensive insurance to protect you and your belongings so that should something go wrong, you have peace of mind that your insurance will cover the damages.

Packing Services

Organising a move can be stressful and exhausting, especially if you’re working a full time job right up until the last minute. Our dedicated team of packers can come to your home and ensure your belongings are packed up swiftly, neatly and carefully. They take the same care with your belongings as you would, ensuring everything is properly padded to last the distance.
