Cost of International Moving
The method of transportation for the relocation plays a significant role in the cost. International moves can be done by truck (to Canada and select parts of Mexico), air (for small and time-sensitive shipments), or ocean, where goods are shipped in containers aboard ships. Ocean shipping container sizes range from 20 feet to 40 feet.
Determining whether you require a full container load (FCL) or less than a container load (LCL) will factor into the cost of your international relocation. FCL provides security and convenience as your belongings occupy the entire container, while LCL is a cost-effective option where you share the container with others.
Additionally, other services impact the final cost, including distance, time of year, desired packing/unpacking services, customs clearance and paperwork fees, insurance, vehicle shipping, appliance handling, storage at origin and/or destination, and more.
We recommend reaching out to obtain an accurate international moving estimate. Our experience and expertise guide you through the complexities of international moving, ensuring a smooth and reliable transition.
