For anyone moving overseas, shipping household goods and all of your furniture is a lot to think about, even before looking for international moving services. But determining how much you want to move internationally is a vital step.
Household Shipments Include:
It's one of the more important questions to ask before an international move and it depends on your budget as well as where you will be living abroad.
For instance, electric outlets for appliances vary by country. If you're considering shipping furniture overseas, think about the difference in space between your home in the USA and residence in your destination country including points of entry.
Regardless of how much you decide to bring, we offer options for any size move. Your personal effects and items will be handled by our team that has over 38 years of experience packing, loading and shipping household goods overseas.
As with any relocation, international moving costs are based on multiple factors. These include the type of service, volume of your shipment, location and final destination country.
Type of Service
Are you using a shared groupage service or shipping your goods inside your own 20ft or 40ft container? Are you paying for a door to door service or door to port?
Does the service include destination terminal handling fees? These questions can cause headaches during an already stressful time because not all quotes are created equal, even when they say they are!
So you could end up paying hundreds of dollars in hidden fees because you didn't compare the different international moving quotes you received correctly.
**Our quotations are always all inclusive and include these charges unless stated otherwise.
Volume of Your Move
Don't know this? Try using our free volume calculator. The cost to move household goods, whether it is 100 cubic feet or 1000, is based on volume.
This makes using a shared service much more cost effective because you only pay for the space you need.
Those moving a 4 bedroom home or a condo and shipping a car will be better suited booking their own 40 foot container. We specialize in both types of international moves!
As mentioned above our rates are all inclusive and door to door, meaning that once we have an exact measurement of your goods, the quote you receive is what you pay and it includes pickup, destination services and final delivery.
As an international moving company, we orchestrate over 10,000 household moves annually to over 60 destinations including Australia, Germany, the UK, Europe and many more.
Whether you're shipping household goods overseas from the east coast, west coast or gulf, we offer everything to get you moving including customs clearance, 24/7 online tracking and in home packing and wrapping options.
