Hello, and thank you for visiting!

The cost of your international move will depend on the international moving company you choose, the services you require (crating, packing, etc.), and the method you desire (air freight vs. sea freight). Sea freight is usually more affordable, but it will take longer to receive your shipment.

You will also have to consider customs fees and duties, destination port fees, terminal handling charges, custom inspection charges, customs clearance, delivery-to-door charges, packing materials, and extra fees for oddly-shaped or unusually heavy items.
