We just love a challenge when it comes to helping our customers move the most obscure packages to some of the remotest parts of the world!

Whether it's sourcing the best way to transport a wind farm from Denmark to Tasmania or a classic Messerschmitt car crated and shipped to Norway, Gloucester Freight Services is up to the task!

Here are just a few of the jobs we're most proud of, giving you an idea of what we can do for you:

Antique Mahogany Bookcase

Antique Mahogany Bookcase

This is an Antique Mahogany Bookcase that we recently packed and sent to America. This was sent via Air Freight and as such the height of the unit was an issue. We informed the customer in America about this and asked if we could split the two sections and ship it this way as it would be more cost effective for him that way. Another issue we had was to ensure that the glass was protected during transit, we did this by padding the glass with foam and other protective materials. The final packed size came in comfortably under the 178 cms limit.
