Begins with your inventory – what you can take and what is is prohibited
Comprehensive and productive international moves begin with a thorough in-home or virtual home survey. At this time, our international moving professionals will view everything in your home that is moving. They will build an inventory of all portions of your relocation – air shipment, sea shipment, and storage. This will be the starting point to have dialogue with your Global Relocation Specialist about what things you intend to have in each shipment. Additionally, you will be provided with the unique specifications for the country you are moving to. Each country has specific and distinctive requirements related to what items you are or are not permitted to take into the country. Knowing this info up front means you will be prepared in advance of move day.
On move day, the movers will complete all the necessary inventory documents and safely wrap everything
The next stage of making sure your documentation is accurate and fully executed takes place on pack day and move day. Your movers will be expertly trained on the specific paperwork regulations for international moves. They will ensure that the inventory is complete. One major part of this is that we are obligated to pack or visibly verify every box in the container. This allows our crews to ensure that nothing is being moved that isn’t allowed into your destination. In addition, it allows us the chance to correctly list everything on your inventory – a required aspect of meeting customs enforcements.
