Apples-to-Apples: How to Compare Overseas Moving Rates

Your overseas moving budget is very important, so as you review multiple overseas moving companies you’ll certainly want to compare their international moving rates. NY International Shipping suggests using apples-to-apples comparison to assess the difference in rates between overseas moving companies. This can be done by requesting international shipping quotes from all of the companies you are considering using the same variables—same shipment volume, shipment service, start location and end destination. Once you have all of the quotes you’ve requested you can do a side by side comparison. While your budget is certainly a major factor in whom you will choose for moving to Turkey with, it should not be the deciding factor. You may want to consider reducing your shipment volume or choosing a less expensive shipment method to give you more flexibility to choose whichever overseas company appears to be the best rather than choosing the cheapest.
