By far the most helpful, communicative, and most importantly, the best priced freight company by far. Not once but twice, from NZ to the UK then eventually back again ..... Sneddens made it possible for this to happen due to their unbeatable quotes and 5 star service. Thank you team Sneddens!

I can't say enough good things about the service provided by Ryan at Sneddens. From initial contact right through to delivery of our stuff he was super responsive and easy to deal with. He even takes the time to proactively let you know what's happening behind the scenes when there is a lull in progress. I have no hesitation in recommending Sneddens for all your international freight handling needs.
