    Amazing from start to finish. We required a company to handle the shipping from start to finish and without involvement from us. Barrington answered all my questions and spent a lot of time in advising us before we even booked shipping with them. Very few others would do this. Honest, transparent and professional service. These guys know the system inside out and your in safe hands. Thank you guys for everything.

    Marches Global have used Barrington Freight for the last 6 months consistently for shipping overseas to our customers in Belgium, France, Sweden and Estonia.
    We have found Barrington Freight to be extremely helpful, competitively priced and efficient, with all orders quotes and paperwork generated quickly, all collections made on time and with excellent communication as to the progression/status of the delivery which helps massively with keeping our customers updated.

    What a fantastic service Barrington Freight provide! I cannot thank them enough for the speed and care they took helping my small business. They deserve more than 5 stars!! Thank you, Lee and Simon.

  • on 09.02.2022

    I had a bespoke built item which needed to be shipped from the UK to Europe, not only within a tight timeframe but also to be handled with the upmost care. As you can imagine a bespoke item being damaged would be very costly! Barrington Freight did not let me down on any level. From placing my order, being collected and with a happy customer at the other end with nothing damaged at all, I can not recommend Barrington Freight enough. Being let down by numerous other shipping companies in the past, I wont go anywhere else going forward. Thank you guys : )

  • on 07.02.2022

  • on 21.12.2021

    best service

  • on 17.12.2021

    Due to this brilliant thing this government introduced in 2016 called “Brexit”, which was supposed to cut red tape but has actually tripled it. However, shipping goods between the UK and Europe has now become a nightmare fortunately Barrington Freight remains head and shoulders above many other shipping companies, some that don’t even bother to respond to enquiries or even have the courtesy to get back to you to say they don’t want your business.

    I used this Barrington previously, pre-Brexit, and the only difference now is that I now required an EORI number, but I will used them again and again.
    All I can say forget the rest and stick with the best; the prices are fair and the service first rate – so what is there not to like?

  • on 16.12.2021

  • on 18.11.2021

    First time customer, competitive quote, good communications, will use again !.

  • on 18.11.2021

    This was our first time sending goods to the EU since Brexit ,and Barrington Freight held our hand with impressive patience throughout the whole process. Always quick to respond to our enquiries and very communicative throughout, we felt that we were in reliable hands. Great service, highly recommended.

  • on 16.11.2021

    We have worked with Barrington Freight to ship various pallets throughout Europe, usually within a very limited timescale, and have found them to offer a very professional, efficient and reliable service.

  • on 09.11.2021

    After a very poor service from another haulier I contacted Barrington Freight for a delivery to a client in Southern Ireland
    Simon, Lee and their team were brilliant, I explained that we had recently had a big problem getting our goods to a client in Ireland and this next delivery could not go wrong. Daily updates from BF, collected from our yard when they said they would and just 72 hours later their vehicle was on site being off-loaded. Brilliant service and helped restore our clients faith in our company. 10/10 and thanks guys!!

  • on 01.11.2021

    Barrington Freight responded quickly and effectively when we had a priority shipping requirement at short notice. We could not have been happier with their service and responsiveness.

  • on 29.10.2021

    Barrington have been most helpful and responsive. At a time of uncertainty with BREXIT and apparently random variations in EU import processes, Barrington have been on the ball and worked to resolve any issues.

  • on 28.10.2021

    Great prices and fast response time

  • on 28.10.2021

All requirements for export paperwork was completed and delivery arrived as promised. I would definitely recommend them

  • on 28.10.2021

    The team at Barrington Freight kept me informed through the process of sending a shipment to France. They also helped with information on customs and commercial invoices - a godsend to someone without the knowledge after Brexit.

  • on 16.10.2021

    melting Footprint is a start-up slow fashion brand manufacturing in Portugal. We were importing our products from the EU for the first time and we chose Barrington Freight as our freight forwarder. The process was seamless. Simple on-line booking, customs advice and goods delivered on time and in perfect condition. We will definately use Barrington Freight for future consignments.

  • on 14.10.2021

    I cannot recommend Lee enough, he was super helpful from start to finish. Thank you for making what could have been a stressful process, easy and smooth.

  • on 06.10.2021

    We have worked with Barrington for over 10 years and always found them to be efficient, professional and organised.

We look forward to continuing to use them for many years to come.

  • on 05.10.2021

    We have worked with Barrington Freight a few times for our shipments and the service has been great.

    I've been using Barrington Freight for some years now & they are first class in all they do. They have been especially helpful in advising on what was needed post Brexit, offering solutions to problems & enabling shipments to be able to get through to EU destinations on time. They have provided a very friendly & efficient service & are always quick to reply to queries.

  • on 23.09.2021

  • on 14.06.2021

    From initial contact Simon ably helped us through the whole process. The container arrived bang on time, driver was extremely helpful. Absolutely thrilled with how this has been managed from beginning to end.
    We were complete novices to this and they managed to get a container from China to our little yard in South Shields without any hassle during a global pandemic. 5*
    Thank you again – hopefully this will be the first of many.

    I was really pleased with my first experience with Barrington Freight. I was able to arrange a dedicated van from mainland Europe to bring us stock from a supplier, at quite a reasonable price. The shipment arrived the following morning with no hiccups at all. Staff and driver were super helpful and easy to work with.

  • on 01.04.2021

  • on 13.10.2020

    I have to say that my transport requirement has been dealt with in a fantastically professional manner by Barrington Freight from start to finish. From getting the job costed online through to collection and delivery was seamless and easy.

    Excellent fast and efficient service - would definitely recommend.

  • on 14.03.2020

    Experiencing the way a business treats its suppliers speaks volumes about that organisation. Having now worked with Barrington Freight on a couple of copywriting assignments I've had a privileged in-depth view of their approach to business – as a supplier and from the perspective of their clients. I'd rcommend them wholeheartedly on both counts!

  • on 24.02.2020

    It was smooth, Mr. Simon Poole was very helpful and very efficient.

  • on 18.02.2020

    Excellent service and willingness to go the extra mile (sometimes literally!) to ensure everything works out. Matt is an excellent communicator and made our international inbound freight experience (moving countries with a full container) much easier than expected, showing a very high degree of conscientiousness and attention to detail. I couldn't recommend him more highly!

    Having never delved into the world of international shipping before I was so grateful to find Barrington Freight, Simon was able to expertly and effortlessly guide me through the whole process.

    We encountered no end of issues along the way (none of which were Barrington's fault) but Simon's calm professional nature, and sense of humour ensured everything still ran smoothly and delivery was made on time.

    I know I'm in safe hands with Simon, no problem is too big and I've no hesitation in using them again.
