International moving is an entirely different concept than packing up and moving across town or even cross-country. Each international destination has its own set of legal requirements and freedoms. Most companies don’t want to attempt navigating them, and even if they do, they lack the experience and qualifications to do so effectively.
We occupy rarefied air at Element Moving. We’re not only able to get your belongings from point A to point B. We’re able to do it at the same comprehensive level of service that we do for our domestic customers. Here’s how we do it.
Meeting the Packing Requirements
Moving across town or to another state? As long as you’re not dealing with any special or hazardous materials, you can pretty much put it in a box and go. However, that isn’t the case with international moving. Each country features a unique set of rules and regulations for what can enter their borders and the state in which it arrives. For example, some countries require materials to be moved in wooden crates where locally you would just pad and cardboard the materials.
An ordinary moving company wouldn’t have the background or the expertise to know this. And going through with such a move could create a host of problems for their customers. But we understand that every moving situation differs, and many of you need that international mobility option, whether relocating as a resident or expanding your business into a global market.
Our years of experience in the moving industry and our level of knowledge about international moving jobs, in particular, equip us to deliver this level of service while offering you the same peace of mind we do with our local and long distance moving options.
Using Smart Inventory and Labeling Tactics
Our international moving reputation is what it is for many of the same reasons we achieve exceptional scores on Angie’s List, Yelp, Google, and HomeAdvisor, and why we’ve held an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau for a number of years.
It’s in the planning!
With the full knowledge of packing requirements in tow, we use smart inventory and labeling procedures to ensure each item always is accounted for. This provides for a smoother end-user experience, and it gives you less to do when you’re ready to unpack.
Pricing and Communication
International moving has its own unique challenges when it comes to pricing as well, and it has a reputation for being expensive. But that’s largely due to people not knowing what to expect or how to navigate the different regulatory requirements.
Our industry-specific knowledge stops us from making many of the mistakes our competitors do, and that leads to lower costs for the people and businesses we serve. We don’t believe in passing through unpleasant and unexpected surprises to our customers. Our certified relocation experts put in the upfront legwork so you can know how to plan and budget for the move ahead of time. We also know where to find efficiencies to keep the price tag affordable throughout the process.
Choosing the Right Partners
The global economy is upon us. There’s no putting that genie back in the bottle, and we learned a long time ago to embrace it. Through good old-fashioned relationship marketing, we’ve been able to establish partnerships and close working relationships with reputable international companies that help us deliver the same end-user experience. Once your belongings arrive in the new country, they pass through customs and head to your new home or office meeting full legal expectations and requirements.
Our overseas team will deliver everything to your door. They can disassemble and reassemble all the furniture. They won’t just dump everything in the garage and say, ‘See you later.’ They will even place each box into the room where it’s supposed to go. Best of all, they will do it anywhere in the world, regardless of continent.
Our belief is the world should not be off-limits to you. Whether you’re opening yourself up to new adventures or you see new professional prospects, we will work hand-in-hand with you to open borders to new opportunities.
Start the Adventure
Where do you want to go? Do you plan on a short-term journey? A permanent relocation? Simultaneous residences or business locations? What will you need to bring with you? There’s a lot to consider when leaving the country, and you want this new adventure to go as smoothly as possible. That starts with great planning and execution. At Element Moving, we’ve helped our internationally-bound clients do that from almost the very beginning. We’ve established the knowledge and the relationships, and it has resulted in a more open travel and relocation experience for everyone who uses us.
