International Moving Options
When you’re looking at different ways to move your belongings to another country, you’ll find you have two main options: ocean freight or air freight. There are significant differences between the two which we’ll describe here:
Ocean transportation entails shipping goods overseas via shipping containers. Unless you have an enormous amount of stuff to ship, you’ll most likely share a container with others. This can be highly economical as less-than-container loads (LCL) are priced by how much volume, in cubic feet, you’re taking up in the container. They also calculate the overall weight which can affect the pricing. While ocean freight takes longer, it can be as much as 15X cheaper than air.
If you’re in a hurry, air transportation is the fastest way to move your household items overseas, but you’ll definitely pay for the convenience. Airfreight is measured by weight, size, and destination. It costs more because of the speed at which your items will arrive—sea freight takes around three weeks whereas air freight can arrive in three days. If only some of your possessions are needed immediately, you might consider splitting the load, sending the important things by air and the rest by sea.

When it comes to moving your entire household overseas, you’ll have many considerations to take into account. How much are you shipping? How fast does it need to get there? The Movers NYC’s moving consultants will help you to figure out whether air or sea is your better option, and once you’ve made your choice, will guide you through the entire process.Get Quote
Commercial Move & Corporate Relocations
The Movers NYC is also an expert at the logistics required for international corporate moves to and from NYC. We can help disassemble furniture, pack for shipping, move and store items, as well as advise on specifics such as passports and visas, customs requirements, etc.
Partial or Full Container Shipping
There are two main options for container shipping: full container load (FCL) or less than container load (LCL). With FCL you’ll pay for the use of the entire container, while with LCL you’ll share a container with others. LCL is cost-effective if you’re only moving a small load. If you have more, you may want to consider FCL as you’ll pay a flat rate that is more affordable.
The Movers NYC specializes in door-to-door delivery, regardless of where you’re moving overseas. Our network of operators will pick up your goods, pack your container, transport it to the ship, clear customs, pick items up at the other end, and transport them inland to your new destination.
With door-to-port delivery, The Movers NYC will pick up your belongings from your doorstep, pack, transport them to the port, and handle shipping to the port of your new destination. But you will be responsible for handling foreign customs and arranging for collecting your items at the port in your new country.Get Quote
Often, overseas moves require storing your household goods for a certain amount of time while you’re in transit. The Movers NYC can arrange to store your items in our climate-controlled facilities for weeks, months, or even years. We can even re-pack for storage, if necessary, ensuring your items are well-protected.
Packing & Crating Services
Packing for an overseas move is much more intensive than a normal move. If you’re sending by sea, you’ll have to take into account the amount of motion the ship will encounter. Our highly-trained movers will pack everything for you, making sure everything is adequately protected with padding and tightly packed onto the pallet to prevent shifting.
Customs Forms & Clearance
Clearing customs can be extremely confusing and overwhelming. The Movers NYC’s move coordinators will guide you through the paperwork process every step of the way, making sure everything is in order for your new destination. They will advise you of any restricted items, in advance, to ensure there are no problems clearing customs at the other end.
When shipping by sea, there are two main types of insurance: damage to your items or total loss. Many factors can cause damage during the moving process, so you’ll want to make sure you’re insured as well as possible. The Movers NYC’s move consultants will help advise which is the best insurance for your particular needs.
