Elephants, zebras and a T-Rex

At Absolutely we’ve worked in all kinds of sectors and dealt with many tricky situations. So it’s become second nature to handle unusual shipments. Dealing with the wild and quirky, has allowed us to provide bespoke solutions that can fit any requirement.

An elephant to Los Angeles, an exhibition stand overnight to Cannes or key factory parts to the other side of the world, our International Special Express Service is more than capable of handling any large item or difficult freight.

Masters of our craft

Sending a shipment across borders can be as mind-boggling as it sounds. Fortunately, we have plenty of experience with international shipping to help you with any issue that might crop up. We can provide specialist knowledge on imports by helping you comply with key regulations and taking care of important paperwork to get through customs. As part of our International Special Express Service we’ll take the necessary steps to make sure your items are fully insured and should you need to make a claim, we will handle everything, keeping you fully updated along the way.

If you’re looking to export your shipment, we work with all the major international carriers to provide the most cost-effective service. We have no hidden surcharges, and our experienced team offers full confidence that your shipment will get to its destination on time and in perfect condition.
