Corrigan Moving is the best international mover in Chicago for these reasons:

Corrigan Moving differentiates from other international forwarding individuals in various essential forms. First, while countless individuals only push legal contracts, Corrigan has a complete international relocation staff. With a location in Chicago and across the Great Lakes Region in the United States, we provide the labor for your move in addition to the back-office management. This enables us to more proficiently mange your moving experience because our distinguishing staff are providing origin or destination services. We can also keep on-top of shifting trends and innovations for global relocation services because we are on the ground everyday.

An additional reason why Corrigan Moving is different from other international moving transportation providers is because we are FIDI authorized. All FIDI affiliated organizations must follow the FAIM Quality Standards. These are the highest and most strict benchmarks. In order to be FIDI qualified, an independent auditing company examines our services regularly to certify we meet their standards. Just about 5% of all global moving companies are FIDI authorized. We are proud to have FIDI qualified locations in Detroit, Buffalo, Cleveland, and Chicago.

Shipping Assistance

Less Than Container Load Shipments

When your international cargo doesn’t need a full transport box, we use less than container load (LCL) freights. For these shipments, your pieces will be wrapped and protected the same way, but instead of shipping directly inside an overseas container, your objects will be placed into a large wooden box called a lift van. These lift vans are sealed and hermetic. They are then moved via forklift into the overseas box along with lift vans  containing other products.

Complete Container Package Shipments

When you are moving a larger load, or complete house, we will use a complete container for your things exclusively. Based on the volume of your load, we will operate either a 20-foot, 40-foot, or 40-foot high-cube container. The container is swept clean to assure your freight is managed successfully. We will bring the overseas container to your house and load it directly on-the-spot. Then, your container will be sealed and stay locked until it is transported to your new house, unless a visual evaluation is demanded by customs agents.

Air Shipments

When you need objects relocated fast, Corrigan Moving will utilize an air shipment. While much quicker than ocean shipments, air shipments are much more costly too. In that case, most people will combine an ocean shipment and an air shipment. On the air shipment, many will only send the most urgent objects and allow their furniture and other belongings to ship on the sea liner. Since space is a premium on air shipments, our teams work diligently to densely box as much as possible inside the industry standard air shipment containers (E, D, and LDN).

International Moving Services

Customs Clearance Support 

When relocating globally, it’s critical that your customs forms and registers are correct and done. Any errors will result in your delivery being flagged for visual review at the customs clearing facility, resulting in long delays and probable damage. Corrigan Moving will ensure your documentation is accurate. Because of our deep experience, we are familiar with the customs principles for the country you are moving to and will make sure everything is in order.

Full Packing & Storage

Covering for a global delivery is more exact than for a domestic relocation. Corrigan Moving is committed to following international packing standards. Our team servicing global moves are notably coached to learn the correct systems of protecting your things. A key component to global wrapping is to pack everything very densely. This means we fit as much as possible within as little of a space as possible. Doing this guarantees the lowest cost for shipping and the safest possible preparation for your load.

Protection for your Property

When transporting your things anywhere in the world, you want to make sure it is guaranteed with Global Move Protection. Global Move Protection will compensate you if something were to occur while transport. When possible, we will restore each damaged item and when that’s an alternative, we will replace it with a new product. It’s meaningful for everyone’s peace of mind that your objects will be cared for even if the unexpected develops
