Begins with your inventory – items you can pack and items not allowed

Smooth and productive international moves begin with a complete in-home or virtual home survey. At this time, our international moving professionals will look at all the things in your house that is relocating. They will build an inventory of all parts of your move – air shipment, sea shipment, and storage. This will be a jumping off point to have discussions with your Global Relocation Specialist about what items you intend to include in each shipment. Additionally, you will be informed of the unique regulations for the destination you are relocating to. Every country has exclusive and distinctive requirements related to what you are or are not permitted to bring into the country. Knowing this info at the start means you’ll be prepared ahead of move day.

On move day, the movers will complete all the necessary inventory documents and carefully pack everything

The next stage of being sure your documentation is correct and fully executed takes place on packing day and move day. Your team will be specifically trained on the special paperwork laws for international moves. They will make sure that the inventory is complete. One big part of this is that our movers are obligated to pack or visibly confirm every box in the container. This gives our crews the ability to ensure that nothing is going to be shipped that isn’t allowed into your destination. In addition, it gives us the chance to accurately detail every item on your inventory – a required aspect of executing customs requirements.

Global Relocation Specialist will ensure everything is ready to go to prevent delays

Your Global Relocation Specialist will make sure all the paperwork is correct and finalized. Next, they will talk with you concerning the arranging of both your air and sea shipments. Customs delays will be limited because Corrigan Moving is committed to ensuring your move is set.
