Moving To Tuvalu

🇹🇻 Tuvalu, (TV)

Tuvalu International Moving Services

Tuvalu is commonly known for its small size and the fact that it is nearly submerged by seawater. Experts predict that in the next 50 years, this island will be no more - that the waters will have swallowed it. Despite these forecasts, A-1 Auto transport fully operates in this small country because we understand that everyone must get the services they require wherever they are in the planet. If you need your car shipped safely we will ensure it is done within the shortest time possible.

Import duties and documents for household goods

Unfortunately, there isn’t any solid information available concerning the duties or documents required by Tuvalu, for foreigners planning to move to this tiny island nation. Located in Oceania, as of the census conducted in 2012, Tuvalu has just over 10,000 inhabitants in all. These citizens are spread out over the 6 atolls and 3 islands that make up Tuvalu (1). With such a small country (in both population and land area), it’s understandable that facts about its governmental policies are hard to come by. 

If you’re planning to relocate to Tuvalu and bring a shipment of household belongings with you, then it’s highly recommended that you contact the proper authorities within Tuvalu before proceeding. You’ll need to speak with Customs and Taxation Control, which is a department of the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning (2). They should be able to provide you with more information about your specific situation.

Import duties and documents for vehicles   

According to one reputable source, there are only roughly five miles of roadways in the entire nation of Tuvalu. In the capital of Funafuti (which is both an atoll and a city), the roads were paved over fifteen years ago. Any roads present on other atolls or islands within Tuvalu are composed of dirt or other materials (3). 

With such a lack of roads, importing a vehicle during your move may not be practical. It also may not be permitted, so you should discuss your plans with customs to learn more. They’ll also be able to inform you about any import documents or duties that may be required. 

When relocating to Tuvalu, partnering with a knowledgeable international moving company like A1 Auto Transport is also wise. We can help guide you through the process, and ensure that all of the proper procedures are followed. 

How do you make your international move easier?

Most of our customers have expressed their fears in moving overseas and others opt for disposing their valuables rather than going through the hectic process of moving.

There is a process involved in moving abroad; with a few clearances to be done before-hand. You need to get everything that you are moving with, into one collection point. This will not only help you save on time and effort, it will make it easy for you to pack and even get a quotation before moving.  A professional mover will walk you through the process and ensure that you have a stress-free experience.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods internationally. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

You can never understand how important a professional mover is to you until you get there. Those that have tried to do it on their own have come back regretting. You don’t have to try it, allow someone who has the experience and the know-how to do all this for you. The international regulations can easily throw you off balance and ultimately make you give up on the entire process.  Our Tuvalu International Moving Services are designed to make your relocation completely hassle-free.

How to find the best international moving company

The moving service industry is full of quacks and intermediaries who are out to fleece you. A good moving company must have the accreditation to do business both locally and internationally. This company should have done business for a while and must show proof that they have rendered similar services in nearly all countries of the world. A genuine moving company will have presence in all countries and possess a certificate of shipping. The company you choose should ensure that you and your items are insured in case of anything. You absolutely need a professional who is trustworthy and doesn’t gamble with what you love. This is the pledge we make with our Tuvalu International Moving Services. We offer you top quality services that will leave you completely satisfied.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
