Moving abroad can be the greatest experience of your life but it can also be a nightmare if you use an inexperienced, unreliable international moving company. To avoid the latter, there are some things you need to look out for when appointing international movers to transfer your personal belongings.

When sifting through the magnitude of international moving companies in South Africa for the best option for your unique needs, make sure to ask them the following questions:

  1. Do they come to your home to do a full inspection before sending you an estimate?
    If your moving company attempts to give you a moving estimate over the phone, RUN! They have no idea what they’re doing! A reliable international moving company will do a full onsite inspection before giving you an estimate.
  1. Do they offer some kind of insurance?
    A trustworthy international moving company will offer their clients the option of an All Risk, In Transit insurance policy since the value of their belongings usually far exceeds the value of revenue earned from the shipment. If they don’t, they are not the right company for you.
  1. Can they assist with pet relocation and storage facilities?
    You’ll want to work with a moving company who offers comprehensive services such as pet relocation, storage facilities and packing services in order to avoid having to deal with multiple companies, therefore, risking something falling through the cracks.
  1. Do they offer help with customs clearance?
    Getting customs clearance for your belongings whether out of South Africa or when entering your destination country, can be a daunting task. Make sure your chosen moving company are familiar with the customs regulations of your destination and can assist you with filling in the required documents.
  1. Are they the cheapest?
    Naturally, people tend to go with the cheapest option and I can understand why – Immigration is a costly exercise. But when it comes to your personal belongings, picking the cheapest moving company isn’t always the best option. If you are satisfied with all of their credentials and they are the cheapest, go ahead, use them! But don’t just opt for the lowest quote before doing your research.
