Starts with your inventory – what you can pack and what is not allowed
Comprehensive and efficient international moves begin with a thorough in-home or virtual home survey. During this process, our international moving professionals will see each item in your house that you are taking. They will create an inventory for all parts of your move – air freight, sea freight, and storage. This will be a starting point to have dialogue with your Global Relocation Specialist about what things you would like to include in each shipment type. Additionally, you will be informed of the exact requirements for the country you are relocating to. Each country has specific and distinctive regulations for what items you are or are not authorized to take into the country. Understanding this info at the start means you will be prepared ahead of move day.
On move day, the movers will fill out all the necessary inventory documents and safely wrap everything
The next stage of being sure your paperwork is correct and fully executed happens on pack day and moving day. Your team will be professionally educated for the unique documentation laws for international moves. They will make sure that the inventory is accurate. One main component of this is that we are obligated to pack or visually confirm every box in the container. This allows our crews to verify that nothing is going to be moved that isn’t permitted into your destination country. Additionally, it allows us the chance to correctly itemize every item on your inventory – an essential component of executing customs requirements.
Global Relocation Specialist will be sure everything is completed to limit delays
Your Global Relocation Specialist will make sure all the documentation is accurate and finalized. Next, they will communicate with you about the scheduling of both your air and sea shipments. You can expect the delays will be less frequent because Corrigan Moving is dedicated to being sure your move is prepared ahead of time.
