Starts at the inventory – what you can pack and what you cannot

Smooth and productive international moves begin with a complete in-home or virtual home survey. Here, our international moving consultants will see everything in your home that you are taking. They will create an inventory for all portions of your move – air freight, sea freight, and storage. This will be a starting point to start conversations with your Global Relocation Specialist about what items you would like to be in each shipment type. In addition, you will be updated on the specific specifications for the nation you are relocating to. Each country has exclusive and distinctive requirements related to what you’re or are not permitted to move into the country. Knowing this information initially means you’ll be prepared in advance of move day.

When packing and loading, the movers will complete all the necessary inventory documents and safely wrap everything

The following stage of being sure your documentation is correct and fully executed takes place on pack day and move day. Your movers will be professionally trained on the special paperwork laws for international relocations. They will make sure that the inventory is accurate. One major part of this is that we are obligated to pack or visually verify every box in the shipment. This allows our crews to double check that nothing is going to be shipped that isn’t allowed into your destination country. It also allows us the time to accurately itemize everything on your inventory – an essential component of following through on customs requirements.

Global Relocation Specialist will ensure everything is completed to avoid delays

Your Global Relocation Specialist will be sure all the paperwork is accurate and finalized. After that, they will talk with you regarding the scheduling of both your air and sea shipments. Delays will be limited because Corrigan Moving is dedicated to ensuring everything is prepared ahead of time.
