International Moving Costs
When moving internationally, there are so many expenses you have to keep in mind. Often the journey to your new residence is long and overseas. You have to pack your household and personal goods carefully. Besides the International Moving Costs, you should also be aware of the following expenses for your international move:
The loading of your household and personal goods in a moving van or container is heavy work and does not always go according to plan. Depending upon the type of house you live in, the accessibility and the size and weight of your goods, a moving lift may be required to access upper floors or move heavy objects.
The costs for transportation are dependent upon a number of factors. Will you be using a transport container; by sea or air transport? By combining different methods your international mover can save you money. Keep in mind that the total size and weight of household goods that you transport will directly affect the transportation costs.
Packing and Disassembly
The packing of your household and personal goods and disassembly of furniture can be a daunting task. To be sure that your household and personal goods reach your destination undamaged this should be done by professionals. Depending upon your budget, you may choose to do this yourself or have professionals to it for you.
If you cannot directly move into your new house or you wish to sell your house earlier, it may be necessary to temporarily store your household goods.
Unpacking and Reassembly
Unpacking and reassembly of your household goods can be done by the moving company at the new residence. These costs are dependent upon distance and accessibility of the new residence. A moving lift might be required to access upper floors or move heavy objects if an elevator is not available.
You do everything with your moving company to insure that your household goods arrive at your new residence undamaged. It can still happen that during the long voyage something goes wrong. We recommended a home insurance that covers household goods during the move and at your new residence.
Keeping in mind the points above; an average estimate of a 3 bedroom home, shipping from UK to US will cost approximately $6000 to $8500 (excluding insurance).
