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.

How Much Does It Cost to Move to Tuvalu?

The cost of moving internationally to Tuvalu can range anywhere from $2,000-$12,000 depending on a variety of factors such as the total distance, route, size of move, transportation method, and current market trends.

Tuvalu is a small island country in the Polynesian subregion of Oceania, in the South Pacific. The cost of moving your belongings for a 1-2 bedroom home can range from $4,000 to $9,000 based on a variety of factors.

Furthermore, the size of your move has a significant impact on the cost of your move. To keep it low, you must discard items you no longer require and take only those that are essential to you. Other considerations include:

Transporting Your Vehicle

If you have to ship your car to Tuvalu, you will pay additional fees. You must work with an auto transport firm that specializes in international car transportation for this purpose. You will also need to apply for a new driver's license in Tuvalu, as well as insure and register your vehicle. You must also follow all safety and environmental regulations in Tuvalu.

Method of Transportation

This is a determining factor in the overall cost of your move. If you elect to transport your belongings by air, you will pay more than if you ship by sea, which is the least expensive choice. Regardless of the size of your move, ground transportation will be required at the start and end.

Storage

You normally do not arrive at your new location before your stuff. This is due to the possibility that you may not be able to relocate when the moving company delivers your goods. As a result, you must employ storage facilities where your items will be carefully stored prior to your arrival. This will also increase your overall moving costs.

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.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
