International Moving FAQs
How do I move my possessions to another country?
Moving abroad comes with its own unique set of requirements. The most common way to move belongings to another country is by shipping them via sea, though air freight is also an option for your international move. Your Relocation Manager will help you inventory items and provide guidance on what should move and what shouldn’t, as well as helping to determine the method of shipment. We’ll then help pack items in a specific freight container designed to withstand the elements.
How much does it cost to ship furniture to another country?
The cost depends on multiple factors including the number of items you’re transporting, the weight, the method of shipment, as well as the overall distance your items are moving. The best way to know the shipping cost is to discuss your specific needs with your Relocation Manager.
Is it worth shipping furniture overseas?
Short answer: it’s up to you! If your personal belongings are important to making your overseas residence feel more like a home, then by all means, ship them! If all you’re moving overseas is family heirlooms, antiques and must-have pieces, then consider purchasing more items when you get to your destination. Your dedicated Relocation Manager can help you understand the true cost of shipping these items.
How do you pack furniture for international shipping?
Packing up a home is half science, half art — and we’re good at both. Packing furniture for international shipping takes thoughtful consideration and the right equipment. First, consider any items that you can take apart. Then, protect sharp corners with bubble wrap or cardboard protectors. At Interstate, we use land, sea and air freight containers designed to withstand the toughest conditions and keep your items safe and secure.
