Begins with your inventory – what you can take and what is is prohibited

Smooth and quick international moves start with a quality in-home or virtual home survey. During this process, our international moving consultants will view everything in your house that is relocating. They will put together an inventory for all parts of your relocation – air freight, sea freight, and storage. This will be the jumping off point to start conversations with your Global Relocation Specialist about what things you intend to be in each shipment. Additionally, you will be provided with the specific regulations for the country you are moving to. Every country has exclusive and unique regulations related to what items you’re or are not authorized to bring into the country. Being informed of this information at the start means you will be prepared ahead of move day.

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

The next phase of making sure your documentation is correct and fully executed takes place on packing day and load day. Your team will be expertly educated regarding the special paperwork requirements for international relocations. They will be sure that the inventory is correct. One big aspect of this is that our crews are obligated to pack or visually verify every box in the shipment. This gives our crews the ability to ensure that nothing is being shipped that isn’t allowed into your destination country. In addition, it allows us the time to correctly itemize every piece on your inventory – an essential component of following through on customs enforcements.
