How To Find the Best International Movers in Houston
Taking the time to compare Houston moving companies can help you make the right choice in international moving companies. Here are several things to look for:
- Certification: The mover you select should be FIDI-certified to help ensure quality.
- Pricing: Make sure you understand just what your moving quote does and doesn’t include. For the most accurate estimate, moving companies should send a representative to your home who’ll survey your household goods or perform a virtual survey online.
- Support: International moves are very different from local or long-distance moves from Houston, and they can be complex. The mover you choose should have extensive knowledge of customs processes, items that may be prohibited, scheduling, and more.
- Licensing and insurance: All reputable, well-established overseas moving companies will be glad to provide proof of proper licensing and insurance.
Tips for Your International Move
You can help minimize the stress of moving overseas with a few simple tips from our international moving experts:
Schedule your move well in advance.
Once you’ve made the final decision to move overseas, book your move with an international moving company as soon as possible. This will allow you to have a better chance of moving when you want to and give the mover time to work with you on the details of your move.
Make a plan for your international move.
Before you start packing, start with an international moving plan. Research important documents that may be required as you leave Houston and enter your new country, such as visas, passports, birth certificates, medical records, school transcripts, employment contracts, immunization records, and financial records. Make copies of all of these documents and leave them with family members.
You’ll also need to find out which items are prohibited from entry into your new country to ensure such items don’t cause shipping delays.
The US embassy at your destination country can assist you with many of these requirements, which can vary a great deal from country to country.
Consider the fit.
If you know your new home’s square footage and room sizes, measure the large furniture items you plan to ship to determine if all of them will fit. You may find that you need to leave some items behind and purchase them in different sizes in your new city.
You can save time, money, and hassles if you pare down your possessions before making your international move. This can help with shipping and packing expenses and make your move less complicated overall.
Consult with your Daryl Flood international move coordinator.
From packing to delivery, our dedicated international move coordinators know just what it takes to get you from Houston to your destination country. Your assigned coordinator can help you with your plan, monitor every step of your move, and advise you on what to expect when your goods arrive overseas.
