Check the Amount of Goods to Ship
Before starting your move to Israel, create an estimate for the volume you want to ship. Once you know the size of your move, you will have a better understanding of the accommodations needed. Each move is unique and knowing what you are actually moving will allow you to get through the process more quickly.
How Much Does Moving to Israel Cost
Once you have a estimate for the size of your move, the next step is to complete a quote request. Each particular move will have a different price due to factors such as volume or origin. For this reason our representatives create custom quotes for every move to make sure you get the most accurate information. To illustrate the difference, the price to move to Jerusalem may be different than the price to move to Tel Aviv even for the same goods.

Israel Relocation Information
American Expats Moving to Israel
For many American expats emigrating to Israel is a long term goal. To people relocating there, Aliyah to Israel is a more than just a move because of the culture behind it. Some relocate here because they get a job opportunity, but that is somewhat less common. There are now established expat communities all over the country, so people moving there can acclimate more easily.
Making Aliyah is the immigration of Jews from the diaspora to Israel. Diaspora in this case is any land that the Jewish people have emigrated to. Moving to Israel from America is one of the biggest Aliyah countries as it has the largest Jewish population. The Law of Return allows Jewish people and their children the right to move to Israel with residency and citizenship in Israel on arrival.
Language in Israel
One of the main difficulties for American expats in Israel is the language barrier. Hebrew is the primary language, so it is best to have a good understanding before moving. While there are many expats in Israel who speak English, operating with locals will mostly require Hebrew.
