So many worldwide movers, but which is right for me?

With so many worldwide movers claiming to offer the best services around, it’s essential for you to look beyond the advertising and do a bit of sleuthing to determine who really offers the best worldwide moving services for you and your family. Begin by trimming your list down to a handful of the best looking companies. Once you’ve reduced your list, begin by cross checking their international moving rates. The best way to do this is to gather quotes from each prospective company using identical scenarios—identical moving services, identical shipping volumes, identical departure locations and identical destinations. Once you’ve received all of the quotes, compare them side by side. As you’ve gathered quotes using the same details this will give you an accurate idea of how they stack up to one another price-wise.

Rates are not the only thing to consider when looking for a worldwide moving company, however. It is important to find out precisely what kind of satisfaction the company has delivered to past clients, what kind of a reputation they have and whether or not they are properly licensed and bonded. Simply call any international moving companies that you are considering and request referrals from past clients. A company that truly delivers excellent services should have references to back up their claims. You should also request a list of organizations with which they are affiliated or members of. It is important that the worldwide mover you choose is well-known within the community, remaining plugged in and accountable to other related organizations in the industry.

NY International Shipping is affiliated with or a member of the following organizations:

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 35 (Young International Movers)

Lastly, ask for proof of the fact that they are properly licensed, bonded and insured to transport your shipment overseas as well as store it in their storage warehouses (should you choose storage). NY International Shipping is not only a licensed NVOCC by the Federal Maritime Commission. NY International Shipping has a properly licensed and bonded, privately owned storage facility with 24/7 surveillance and climate control. Once you’ve analyzed the rates, reputation and experience of the international movers you are considering, you should be able to determine which you are most comfortable with. NY International Shipping knows that inspiring and maintaining your trust and comfort are key ingredients to a good overseas moving experience.

Worldwide Moving by Air or by Ocean?

One of the major decisions you will make, second to choosing a worldwide moving company, is whether to ship your goods by air freight or ocean freight. As the two primary methods of international shipping, they both offer many benefits. It is important that you consult your worldwide mover as to which method may be best for your overseas relocation.

To give you a better understanding of the differences between ocean freight and air freight, NY International Shipping has created this simple breakdown of the two shipping methods for worldwide moving:

Air Freight

· A variety of shipping services such as door-to-door or door-to-airport available
· More expensive than ocean freight, so best for smaller shipments

Ocean Freight
