We have absolute confidence that our Shippers are the best in the business and will deliver your goods with the same high level of service that we provide for all our UK customers. Due to overwhelming demand from overseas customers Beautiful Modern Thing can pretty much ship anywhere in the world!
It was of the utmost importance that our shippers took the same care of our furniture as our own delivery department in the UK. We undertook lots of research and feel we have found the best shippers in the country.
Our shippers have an enviable reputation for providing a quality service to Auction Houses, Antique dealers and Interior Designers from all over the world. They were established in 1970’s and have grown to become the UK’s leading independent removal specialist handling over 20,000 moves each year. We decided that as they ship ‘fine art and antiques’ worth hundreds of thousands of pounds every month, they would be the best people to trust with your deliveries.
Prior to dispatch from the UK, all your goods are quality controlled by our own dedicated team. Once they have successfully passed our stringent Quality Control our shippers will then collect your goods and load them into a consolidated shipping container. Your furniture will be expertly wrapped and packed by us to ensure that by the time it reaches its destination nothing negative has occurred!
Rest assured we have spent hours and hours ensuring that this process has no gaps!
After careful preparation and packing goods can be transported using a range of services to meet our client’s requirements.
Most of Europe is served by either road or air and we offer worldwide shipment by sea to all destinations with regular consolidation services to the USA, Canada and Australia. Airfreight services are available worldwide with most destinations served on a ‘door to door’ basis. Please be advised that ‘sea freight’ is a cheaper £ option than ‘air freight and is our preferred choice!’
Agent networks Shipping Costs
Our shippers have carefully selected partners around the world. We only work with the best, and all of our overseas partners have worked with our shippers for a number of years. Every one of them has attained FAIM accreditation, the recognised industry standard. This helps us to ensure our customers are looked after as well at destination as they are by us in the UK.
Each shipment is individually costed. We need to understand where ‘geographically’ these items are being delivered to, and ultimately understand the quantity and sizes of products you wish to purchase. Please send us an email with the items, quantities required and your full address to: firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall then email you back within two working days with a delivery cost. It couldn't be easier!
Once you have received your quotation from our dedicated International customer service agent, and you are happy, and then please email us back informing us that you wish to proceed.We will then make every effort to speak to you verbally, irrespective of time differences, to call you when it’s convenient! It is at this stage that we can ensure that all your questions are fully answered and proceed with payment.
Taxes/ Import duty
As we all know there are only two things certain in this life- death and taxes! We cannot calculate local taxes because every country/state has a different system and they can change over night! If you’re in doubt about your local taxation system then we advise you to contact your own government/customs/civil service. Please don’t worry about calculating an exact amount, as our agent in your country will do this and notify you of how much you have to pay once your furniture has arrived safely.
Other important information
For shipments to the USA and Canada it is common practice for our agents to also require the following information from you;
Social Security number, Your passport number and Power of attorney.
Our agents will take payment of local taxes and then make a convenient appointment to deliver your lovely Beautiful Modern Thing furniture to your door. (Our tip = Have a friend handy to help you assemble and take it upstairs!)Insurance
We have taken the 'view' that our customers expect to receive their chosen goods in perfect condition. With this in mind we will automatically add a charge of 1.5% to your final invoice. This charge is for our 'Standard Liability Cover'. We believe that this is a nominal charge for the peace of mind that it will bring you and we hope that you understand why we do this. Should you wish for this charge to be removed then this will be at your discretion. *Please note that if this option is removed - Beautiful Modern Thing Limited or their Shippers will not, in any event, be liable to any future claim that may arise for defective or damaged goods.*
Enjoy your furniture
We are sure that you will enjoy your furniture for years to come.
You can be confident that it will be the envy of your friends, particularly when you tell them that it came all the way from a furniture emporium in Isleworth next to the Thames in London.
