Wrote article for UK based Gerson Relocation about Choosing an International Mover

Which type of moving company should I choose to move my home overseas?

 

WHAT TYPES OF MOVING COMPANY ARE THERE?

There are many different types of moving company services available to you. Five minutes on a search engine will provide you with literally hundreds of options to choose from. There are so many, in fact, that spending time finding suitable candidates to help you move can feel a bit overwhelming.

To help you save time, we’ve listed the main categories of moving companies you can expect to find:

 

1. THE “DOMESTIC” COUNTRYWIDE MOVING COMPANY

These are companies who are specialists in moving within your own country. There are the big-name countrywide brands, and other more locally based moving companies you may be aware of that you have used before to move across town.  Whilst they may offer a great countrywide service, international moving is not the same. It involves more complex processes, such as crossing international borders, arranging transportation across thousands of miles, and navigating customs borders and immigration.

Whilst these movers may do a capable job in your home country, do they have the necessary network and contacts with the required experience to handle all of these processes and guarantee an equally great moving experience at the destination location?

Pros: Can provide a good value for moving a whole house within your country.

Cons:  Uncertain international moving capabilities.
