12 Aug The Right Abroad Movers
A lot nowadays think that freight forwarding is just for commercial purposes, not moving abroad and
most moving abroad end up using actual moving services. Well, it wouldn’t be the most illogical
assumption you have heard about, but unfortunately for those wanting to ship their household goods
overseas, a move like that could be a rather costly one. To better assess the situation, one has to know
why would moving services be more expensive and why moving abroad with freight forwarders is the
better way to go. The following are the reasons detailed:
- Moving Services:
Seems like an intuitive decision, doesn’t it? But, why would moving services be more expensive? Simply
First, most movers are not really wired for international moves.
Movers don’t have a lot of experience with customs or many of the other issues that only come
with transferring belongings over borders and oceans.
Movers don’t have the overseas freight network to provide the best rates, deal with port fees,
foreign clearance, and delivery & unpacking with inside delivery to meet high standards of
Movers need somebody else to do the heavy lifting for them.
And really what that translates to is having an extra cook in the kitchen (the moving company),
which still wants to get paid.
- Reaching Movers:
To be honest, people tend to reach movers to ship their household goods overseas for:
Not many international freight forwarders handle household goods & car shipping overseas,
Moving things like personal effects and household goods are different from repeat commercial
It must be overwhelming to even consider something that is normally known for commercial
and industrial applications,
It must also give you heart palpitations to deal with anybody for such an important move.
It’s not like you can drive your car from California to Australia, like you might do if you were only
moving to a different state.
- Freight Forwarders:
Because of all this, one can imagine you’re pretty stressed and asking yourself why freight forwarders
are the better way to go. Actually, moving abroad is best with Freight Forwarders, not Moving Services
It’s not like you’re going to be doing this a lot, so to go out and learn the ins and outs of this
industry is likely a long shot, accordingly many have already found a far less expensive method
to ship their household goods & vehicles overseas!
Not every forwarder offers it, but some will give you exactly what you envisioned when you set
out on this quest, providing things like packing, warehousing, loading, shipping overseas
clearance & delivery.
But because this is such a big move, you’re dealing with quantities that may actually compare to
something you’d see in a commercial shipment, and the reality is that your moving service is
going to be using the exact services I’m describing to you, but with a mark-up and lack of
understanding of how the process should go.
This is why you require a friendly hand from inception to explicitly provide clear answers to your
many questions & always making sure that each shipping step, customs, packing, loading,
booking with the carrier all fall within a time line that the you must follow.
