Having done all this, we are able to easily coordinate relocations such as moving to Vanuatu with ease, providing peace of mind to our clients and allowing them to focus on more important things, such as their families. Excellent overseas moving companies are hard to come by, so here are some helpful hints as to what you should look for when searching for the right overseas moving company for moving to Vanuatu:

1. Reputation and References – One of the best ways to learn about a company is through referrals from past clients. If a company can produce non, it’s probably not a good sign, however, if they are ready and willing to provide you with a stack to review it means their services probably match their claims. It’s also a great idea to check out third-party review websites to read the reviews on the on the overseas moving companies you are considering. And of course, if you hear about a company through word of mouth you should definitely find out what the referee knows about the company, too
2. Credentials – You want to make sure that the overseas moving company you choose for moving to Vanuatu 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). When it comes to shipping your goods overseas, you want to use an established company.
3. Industry-Related Affiliations and Memberships – A company that is very invested in the work they do should be affiliated with other industry-related organizations. Check to see what groups each overseas mover is affiliated with or holds a membership to. For example, 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. In-person Visit – It’s always a good idea to visit any perspective overseas movers you are considering. If they don’t have a physical office for you to visit, take them off of the list! Not only is it important to make sure that they really exist, but it can be very different to see how a company works first-hand rather than making assumptions from phone calls and emails.
5. Compare Rates – Your overseas moving budget probably weighs heavily on your mind. 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 is called apples-to-apples comparison and it will give you an accurate view of how each the rates of these companies stack up. 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.
