Tips on Shipping Household Goods Overseas

Moving is a stressful time, especially if you are shipping household goods overseas and are concerned about the process. Not only do you need to be concerned about the actual packing, you have to pay attention to other things like getting the best shippers, getting everything through customs, etc., so here are some tips on shipping household goods overseas:

Successful Moves Require Adequate Packing

When your whole life is being shipped overseas, you had better pay attention to how things are being packed. Always be sure to get professional packing and make sure things like lawn mowers are free of gas and perfectly clean and have no dirt on them that could harbor insects. Good packers will understand the rules for items like this, as well as know how to pack them so they will arrive safely and in one piece at your final destination.

Don’t Forget to get an Inventory of all Your Household Goods

Make sure you pay attention to the packers as they wrap and box up your items. Get a complete inventory of every single thing, especially expensive items like electronics, computers, professional gear, etc. You also should write down all serial and model numbers. Never ever, sign a blank inventory packing form!

Make Sure Packers have Correct Paperwork, Licenses, Bonding

When shipping anywhere, but especially overseas, make sure the packers you hire have all the required paperwork such as customs forms, licenses, bonding and other required paperwork. You don’t want your household goods held up when you are trying to get them to your new home.
