You’re about to embark on life in a new country. You’re excited. You’re nervous. In addition to finding a home, getting the kids signed up for school and starting a new job, you also have to find a way to move your household belongings.
Picking the right international mover can be overwhelming. There are so many choices. And typing the word “moving” in your search bar returns results for just about anyone with a truck and a few boxes. While moving within the USA can be challenging enough, relocating globally adds another significant level of complexity and requires a unique level of expertise.
It’s important to work with international moving companies that offer full service moving capabilities from start to finish; including detailed consultation on everything from what can and cannot be shipped, to what is required for the customs process in your new host country.
To ensure a provider’s expertise, ask for proof of membership in globally focused industry groups such as FIDI (International Federation of International Movers) or IAM (International Association of Movers). Both organizations hold members to high quality and service standards.
Be wary of companies offering unrealistically cheap moving services. When soliciting quotes, if one carrier is significantly less expensive than others, there is likely a reason, ranging from subpar packing services, a lack of experience in the industry, to service or product exclusions.
