How to Compare Overseas Moving Companies

There are several important criteria to consider when choosing an overseas relocation company for moving to London – UK. You want to make sure that as you compare and review the different international moving companies that you are considering, that you look at the total package of each international moving company. If you are simply looking for a company with low overseas moving rates you may end up with a company that is not as trustworthy or capable as another. NY International Shipping suggests analyzing the following areas before choosing an international moving company:
1. Reputation and Referrals – Review each company’s reputation and quality of service from several different angles by checking the professionalism of the company’s website, asking for referrals, checking third-party review sites, etc.
2. Credentials – Make sure that the overseas moving company you choose for moving to London – UK is licensed like NY International Shipping is as an NVOCC (Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier) by the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC). Also, make sure that all possible international moving companies are licensed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) as well as possess appropriately licensed and bonded warehouses.
3. Affiliations and Memberships – Check to see what organizations each company is affiliated with or holds a membership to. Top companies in the industry like to remain on top of things by joining notable organizations related to the industry. NY International Shipping is affiliated with:

· Employee Relocation Council/Worldwide ERC®
· Foreign Commerce Club of New York
· IAM (International Association of Movers)
· NY/NJ Foreign Freight Forwarders & Brokers Association Inc.
· YP 25 (Young International Movers)

4. Pay Them a Visit – Consider paying a visit to each prospective company’s physical location. Not only is it important to make sure that they really exist, but it’s very different to see how a company works first-hand rather than remotely via phone and their website.
5. Compare Rates – Compare the rates of the overseas relocation companies at the top of your list. The best way to compare international moving rates is to gather quotes from the companies you are considering using the same variables—same shipping volume, shipping service, origin location and destination. This will give you an accurate view of how each company compares to the others based on the same details. Remember, it may be worth going with a slightly more expensive overseas mover if they have a better reputation and more services to offer. You can always discuss alternate shipping methods such shipping as by ocean or you can try reducing the volume of your shipment to stay within budget
