Moving to the USA

As a destination, North America is the second most popular destination to which Britons emigrate, after Australia. According to figures from the Daily Telegraph, each year around 23,000 Britons go west, whether for career or family reasons. In total, the British expatriate population in the USA numbers approximately one million.

Fashionable choices for expatriates from Britain and the Republic of Ireland include New York City, Austin, the sunshine state of Florida in the south or San Francisco and Los Angeles in the west. In contrast, Seattle has a cool climate, while Portland, Boston and Denver also rank high on the list of preferences.

Supporting Your Move to the USA

Undoubtedly, relocating to the other side of the Atlantic involves detailed preparation, proper planning and professional support. At Brycelands, we provide a comprehensive removals service to cities and states in North America, in tandem with our network of award winning American removals companies.

International Shipping to the USA

For removals to North America, international shipping makes use of secure metal containers that we track as they cross the Atlantic. Your options include a full container load (FCL) or a shared load.

Should you opt for a full load, we can assist with packing before loading your belongings into a 20-foot or a 40-foot container, which we then transport directly to the docks to await the next scheduled trans-Atlantic sailing. Experienced Brycelands staff then liaise with the carriers, tracking the consignment and informing our agent in America, who then contacts you to assist with customs clearance and delivery arrangements.

Conversely, with a shared load, we pack your possessions on an agreed date and transfer the container(s) to our international warehouse, for onward transport within a consolidated shipment. Next, our management team confirms arrival dates once your consignment has cleared customs in the USA, We then liaise with you for delivery and unpacking at your new home. Because you pay only for the space used within the container, shared loads represent a cost-effective choice if you can be reasonably flexible with delivery dates.

Additionally, if you require storage before or after your move to America, Brycelands offers you international storage services.

Finally, for your peace of mind, we insure all goods in transit.

What People Say

Feefo Ratings
I just wanted to thank you for your brilliant service! Dave and the team have been the most professional people we have ever worked with. Aside from being brilliant at their jobs, they are so personable, supportive and just a joy to have around. What I was expecting to be a horrendously stressful experience has turned out to be fine. While moving is never fun, I’m just grateful that they are here helping us through it. I really can’t praise them enough.
J Roberts, Hertfordshire
Aaron and the team were excellent. So quick and careful. No damage at all. They made the day so easy. We were so impressed by them. And they were also really nice guys and put us totally at ease on what can easily be a stressful day. Would not hesitate for a second to recommend you to others.
JS, So quick and careful
Please could you pass on my thanks to the team who helped with our move on Friday, they were professional, yet good humoured and helped what is a very stressful time by exceeding our expectations of how a house move can go.
David Jones, Welwyn Garden City
I used Brycelands for a move this week. I have been really impressed with the service from day 1 and the crew that arrived on the day were absolutely fantastic – friendly, calm and clearly knew what they were doing.

I wanted to say how absolutely delighted we were with our move on Thursday. In spite of the lorry being too long to back up the drive the team set about transferring everything to the house by constantly crossing the road.
Mike Carpenter, Stevenage
Your guys were exemplary in pretty well every aspect of our move. Considering it snowed the night before we were to move, they arrived in good spirits and did everything we asked with humour, courtesy and efficiency leaving the house clean and tidy.
Roger Dyson, St Albans
