Starts with the inventory – items you can take and what is is allowed

Smooth and quick international moves begin with a quality in-home or virtual home survey. Here, our international moving specialists will view everything in your house that is moving. They will put together an inventory of all parts of your move – air freight, sea freight, and storage. This will be a jumping off point to start dialogue with your Global Relocation Specialist about what things you would like to have in each shipment type. Furthermore, you will be provided with the unique requirements for the nation you are moving to. Each country has specific and distinctive regulations related to what items you are or are not authorized to move into the country. Understanding this info at the start means you’ll be prepared prior to move day.

On move day, the movers will fill out all the necessary inventory paperwork and carefully prepare everything

The following stage of making sure your documentation is accurate and complete occurs on packing day and move day. Your movers will be expertly educated for the specific documentation regulations for international moves. They will make sure that the inventory is accurate. One big aspect of this is that our crews are required to pack or visibly confirm each box in the move. This allows our crews to ensure that nothing is going to be shipped that isn’t allowed into your destination. Additionally, it allows us the ability to completely itemize every piece on your inventory – an essential component of executing customs regulations.

Global Relocation Specialist will be sure everything is ready to go to limit delays

Your Global Relocation Specialist will be sure all the documentation is accurate and complete. Next, they will talk with you regarding the arranging of both your air and sea shipments.
