Apples-to-Apples Comparison of Overseas Moving Companies
While looking at overseas moving companies when moving to the Bahamas you’re also going to want to consider shipping rates as a major factor in choosing a company. The best way to compare international moving companies is through apples-to-apples comparison. This can be done in the following way:
1. Gather overseas moving rates from each potential international moving company based on shipping the exact same volume using the same shipping services from and to the same locations.
2. Compare the quotes provided side by side.
Though shipping rates are important, it is also important when choosing an overseas moving company when moving to the Bahamas to consider the big picture. The international moving company with the cheapest rates might not have the best reputation and may not be able to give you the best quality of service. Consider using an overseas moving company with a better reputation despite slightly higher rates. You can always decrease the total volume of your shipment or choose a less expensive shipping method such as ocean freight to remain within your budget.

What to Expect When Moving to the Bahamas
Located in the Atlantic Ocean to the southeast of the Florida peninsula, the Bahamas consists of thousands of tiny islands and its capital is Nassau. A tropical paradise, the Bahamas are a magnet to tourists from all over the world. Tourism in the Bahamas supports approximately 70% of the economy in the Bahamas and is responsible for providing work to approximately 50% of the workforce. The Bahamas offers a plethora of sights and activities as well as a broad array of upscale resorts. It is probably important to also note that the cost of living in the Bahamas is actually quite high, though there is a great deal of money to be made in anything related to tourism. You may be happy to note, however, that there is no income tax. The official language in the Bahamas is English, although Creole is also spoken. The currency used in the Bahamas is the Bahamian Dollar (BSD). Consults your NY International Shipping international relocation specialist to see how and when you can exchange your currency for the Bahamian Dollar. Also, you may be required to obtain a visa prior to moving to the Bahamas. Consult your local Bahamian Consulate to discuss the different visa types and procedures with which to obtain them.
