International moving is an entirely different concept than packing up and moving across town, or even across the country. Each destination has its own set of legal requirements and freedoms. Most companies don’t want to attempt navigating them, and even if they did, they lack the experience and qualifications needed to do so effectively.
We occupy rarefied air at Element Moving and Storage. We’re not only able to get your belongings from point A to point B, but we’re also able to 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. 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 expertise to know this. For them, going through with such a move would create problems for their customers. We understand that every moving situation differs, and many need international mobility; whether relocating as a resident or expanding your business into a global market.
Our years of experience in the moving industry and knowledge about international moving allows us to deliver for our customers. This level of service, while offering you the same peace of mind as with our local and long-distance moving options, is why we’re the next generation in moving and storage.
Using Smart Inventory and Labeling Tactics
Our international moving reputation is why we achieve exceptional scores on Angie’s List, Yelp, Google, HomeAdvisor, and why we’ve held an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau for a number of years.
It’s all in the planning!
With the full knowledge of packing requirements in tow, we use smart inventory and labeling procedures to ensure each item is always is accounted for. This provides for 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, and it has a reputation for being expensive. However, 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, which leads to lower costs for the people and businesses we serve. We don’t believe in giving unpleasant, unexpected surprises to our customers. Our certified relocation experts put in the legwork up front, 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. These companies help us deliver the same end-user experience that our local customers enjoy. Once your belongings arrive in the new country, they pass through customs and head right to your new home or office, meeting full legal expectations and requirements.
Our overseas team will deliver everything to your door. They will disassemble and reassemble all the furniture, and won’t just dump everything 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 the continent.
We believe the world should not be off-limits to you. Whether you’re opening up to new adventures or you see new professional prospects, we will work hand-in-hand with you to open the 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 and Storage, we help our clients do that from 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.
