Moving to South Korea from the US

South Korea has recently become a major destination for relocation because of its tremendously growing export industries such as electronics, telecommunications, and car production. There are over 150,000 American expats living in Korea, and that number is projected to grow as the country continues to advance its export market. Moving to South Korea has become massively popular in the last decade, and Schumacher Cargo Logistics offers the best international shipping service to move you there.

Relocating to South Korea from the US can be intimidating and requires proper preparation and time management. You have to consider where you will be living, what type of visa you need in South Korea, importing costs, and any other local taxes on specialty items. Our job as a full service international shipping company is to make each part of your move go as smoothly as possible and with 40 years of experience, you can be assured that your move overseas will go well.

So while you focus on the most important steps of setting up your new life in South Korea, we can handle all the stress and logistics of wrapping up your life here in the US and moving it to your new Korean home.
