Help and advice needed

As some of you know we have given up on touring europe because of Problem with border closures etc.
We will now ship our motorhome from Southhampton to Brisbane Australia and have decided on a British company to do this for us. However the motorhome needs fumigation before getting loaded and must be brought to Winchester to do this and afterwards to the port in Southhampton. Can anybody please recommend a company or person to do this task. I am awaiting some quotes at the Moment but I am not sure what the going rate should be.
In addition I require a Company or person who will be able to check and if need be clean the vehicle before shipping .
The following points are important according to the Australian border force

Decontamination of motor vehicles and motorcycles
Important exterior points to check:

wheels, wheel guards, mud guards
engine bay—remove water from any reservoirs (excluding radiator) and ensure your radiator is clean and free of debris in the cooling fins
behind the fairings and side-covers
above and around the fuel tank
inside chassis rails
external vents
around window seals
sticky protective wheel and bonnet covers on new vehicles.
Important internal points to check:

boot area including spare tyre and wheel well
internal compartments of motorcycles, such as under seat storage
engine bay—remove water from the windshield reservoir and ensure the grille and radiator cooling fins are clean and free of debris
internal storage compartments including console
under seats and mats
in seat folds
internal vents
internal window, door seals and around door locks.

The vehicle currently is in long Melford and as it is difficult to arrange for me to Organise this being on the other side of the world I would appreciate you input

Thank you
