    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.
