International moving by air sea and road
Once everything is packed professionally you will need a company who understand the best way to move your possessions. If you are moving internationally, then you will need to select the best method of transportation and provide the correct documentation to ensure your items are not held up in customs or incurring unwelcome additional costs or duties.
Expert international shipping advice
Our international moving experts will provide you with the advice based on latest customs requirements. They will also aim to find the most efficient and cost-effective way for your move to be transported.
Through experience, we understand that people’s plans adjust as they go along. Whether your timings change, or you find that you need to include additional items, then we can help.
Important documentation and advice
An international move will have plenty of documents which will need to be completed ready for inspection from the authorities. Depending on which country you are moving from and to, these will vary. We ensure you have the correct documentation and provide guidance to ensure everything is complete and in order. We look after the details which means you don’t have to worry if you have missed anything or misinterpreted the forms.
Sea freight moves
If you are moving between land masses separated by water, then it is most likely that moving your items by sea will be the most cost-effective way to move. Your items will be packed and loaded into a sea container for shipping. We offer a range of different options with different price points, depending on how much you will be moving and your time frames. Your Gerson Relocation Manager will be able to advise you on the best method. If your items are being moved by sea, then there will be a period when they are in transport. We can help here with a small air freight for essential items and temporary accommodation options.
European road moves
If you are moving within Europe, then a road move is often the most effective way to move. We have a range of pan-European vehicles with special features such as air-ride suspension and tail lifts to move your possessions and deliver to your home in your new country.
Comprehensive insurance cover
It is always recommended to insurance for your possessions when they are moved internationally. We offer comprehensive moving insurance that provides peace of mind.
We guide you through the customs process and documentation preparation. We also take care of the customs clearance of your possessions at the destination country too, so everything is ready for delivery.
Delivery and unpack in your home
When your items have cleared customs, we arrange for a professional crew to deliver your items at a time which is convenient to you. The delivery crew will protect your home and unpack your items carefully to avoid any damage. They will place them in your home and remove any materials for recycling.
