Austin international moving FAQs

Moving internationally can be daunting, which is why Daryl Flood has simple, straightforward international moving quotes that allow you do know exactly how we fit into your budget. Your relocation consultant can walk you through any questions or concerns so you’re absolutely clear on your cost.

Moving internationally should be an exciting time in your life, not a stressful one. You’ll need to carefully vet your international moving company to ensure they’re the right partner for your journey. But with that being said, there are a few factors that will determine the cost of your overseas move:

  • Where you’re relocating to in the world
  • Where you’re coming from (do you live near a port? Will your items have to travel far before being loaded for their international journey?)
  • How your items need to travel to your new city (typically air or sea)
  • The amount of items you’re bringing with you – moves are priced by weight, so the more items you bring, the more expensive it will be
  • Do you need any extra services? (For example, professional packing or storage)

Speak with your relocation consultant, and they can help you understand a more specific budget for your particular move, and different services you can add or drop depending on your needs.

Typically, yes. Our team prides ourselves on flexibility and making the international moving process as easy as possible for you.

With an international move, customers usually (hopefully) reach out to vet moving companies earlier than they would for any other type of move, so we can reserve your moving date earlier than most other types of moves.

Our depth of resources provides us more capacity than most local Austin movers, who may only have two or three moving crews available at any time. Because we are professional international movers, we also are fully trained in how to pack and load your goods for international travel. Your move coordinator would have discussed these requirements with you ahead of time and prepared you for what an international move loading requires. It may vary depending on how your items are traveling to your new home.

When you choose Daryl Flood for your international moving services from Austin you are choosing a trusted moving company with over 40 years of experience, and we put that experience into the training we provide new team members.

We’re a FIDI certified company, meeting over 200 high-quality requirements covering the company’s operations and service to customers.

One element of our training program is how to protect a home. This means teaching our crews how to properly install the high-quality floor, door and wall protections we provide. This is one of the first steps any crew should take upon arriving at your home. This way, we’re protecting both your home and items from potential damage, no matter how unwieldy the item. This can be especially important in apartments and condos, which tend to have tighter spaces, as well as common areas to navigate.

Daryl Flood has 100,000+ square feet of warehouse space locally in Austin, and we are ready and able to safely store your goods for short or long-term until you return home from abroad. This is a very common service we provide with international moves that are only expected to last a few years.

If your items are with us, you can rest easy knowing your belongings are safe in our secure moving storage facility, 24/7-video monitoring service and first-rate fire suppression system.

Local and long-distance moves have their own challenges, but international moves have complexities that make them unique. For a moving experience with minimal issues, it's important to know what to look for in an international moving company and to select one with the specific expertise necessary for your particular move. Here are several factors to consider when you are comparing Austin international movers:

  • The restrictions on what you are allowed to take into a country can vary. Make sure your international movers can provide accurate information on the restrictions in your destination country.
  • The company you select should have professionals with extensive experience in every aspect of overseas moves, such as insurance coverage, document requirements, customs inspections, and more.
  • Packing methods are another way in which international moves differ from other types of moves. Your moving company should have knowledge of and experience in providing appropriate protection for your household goods.
  • An international moving company must be able to have custom crates built for any high-value or sensitive items you have, such as antiques or artwork.

At Daryl Flood, we have experts who can plan and execute every aspect of your move abroad. You can count on us for the world-class service it takes to provide the best possible move.

Steer clear of Austin international movers who cannot or will not give you proof of their insurance and licensing. For the greatest protection of your belongings, any company you consider should also have accreditation or certification from authoritative international moving trade associations, such as the American Moving & Storage Association and the FIDI. The highest credentials are only earned by moving companies that have proven they meet the most stringent requirements for service and expertise.

A trustworthy international mover will provide a detailed moving quote and make sure you fully understand what it does and does not include. At Daryl Flood, our dedicated move coordinators clearly explain all the factors that go into calculating your estimate. These factors may include whether you have chosen air or sea freight, if you need any additional services such as custom crating, what size container will be needed for the most efficient move, and more.

For the most part, restrictions are dictated by the regulations and laws in the countries through which your belongings are transported. Commonly encountered restrictions apply to hazardous and flammable items, firearms, perishables, and medications. The consulates and/or embassies relevant to your international move will be able to give you details about requirements related to the country they represent.

While it may not be possible to give you an exact date, most experienced international moving companies can provide a good idea of the shipping timeframe. A number of factors can play a role in timing, such as your destination city and which countries your goods will move through. Ask the moving companies you're speaking with how long their shipping methods take and which one they recommend for you.

No matter how your goods are being transported, at Daryl Flood, your move coordinator will make sure you stay up to date on the progress of your move.

Since international moves can be complex, this is one of the most important questions to ask the companies you're interviewing. You want to be able to easily contact someone who can answer your questions, track your move and ensure things go smoothly. At Daryl Flood, we assign you an experienced move coordinator who will support you and be available with just a phone call from start to finish.
