Moving can be an eventful experience at the best of times. However moving internationally adds even more challenges and difference including possible language barriers, different customs, different climate, and other factors of the new locale that may be radically different then what you are used to.
International Moving Methods
There are two methods used when moving internationally:
- Air Freight
- Ocean Freight
Air Freight Benefits and Costs
Air freight shipping is the fastest and most reliable method of international shipping for smaller loads. Although more costly than Ocean Freight shipping, Air freight features benefits such as:
- Low cost insurance premiums
- Ability to transport cargo almost anywhere
- High level security
Ocean Freight Benefits and Costs
Ocean freight shipping is the cheaper alternative to air freight shipping. This method of shipping has many benefits such as:
- Large ports that ensure quality service
- Flexibility in transportable items
- Ability to hold heavy and large loads

Is your Company Relocating you?
If your international move is a company-paid relocation, you will need to know your company’s international moving policy. Most companies have restrictions on overseas shipments, as well as the possibility of storage in your home country. Knowing the international moving policy will help you to appropriately narrow down which possessions to take with you on your international move, and how they are to be shipped.
