Below are some tips that will help you find the right worldwide mover.
- Read over any reviews or testimonials left online about the company from past customers. Some websites will even allow customers to give star ratings with one star being the lowest and five stars being the greatest.
- Ask what certifications and licenses the mover carries to prove their authenticity and reliability as a worldwide moving company.
- As a mover with worldwide experience, they should offer their customers a variety of helpful moving and storage services.
- A licensed mover is required to carry the state’s set amount for minimum insurance. Most movers will allow their customers to purchase extra insurance coverage which is especially important if you want the full value of your things protected as it travels overseas.
- Be on the lookout for movers that ask for a full down payment or even a large amount of the total bill before the items have been delivered. Most movers expect payment after the relocation takes place.
- See what materials, tools and equipment they use for a residential move to another country. It should all be up to date and of the highest quality.
- Make sure the mover has familiarity dealing with foreign import policies and the proof that is needed for Customs’ certificate of import approval.
