We offer complete customs clearance support

Starts with the inventory – what you can take and what is not allowed

Seamless and quick international moves begin with a thorough in-home or virtual home survey. During this process, our international moving professionals will view each item in your home that is relocating. They will build an inventory of all segments of your relocation – air shipment, sea shipment, and storage. This will be the starting point to start dialogue with your Global Relocation Specialist about what items you want to be in each shipment. In addition, you will be informed of the unique regulations for the destination you are relocating to. Each country has exclusive and distinctive regulations for what items you’re or are not authorized to move into the country. Knowing this information initially means you’ll be organized ahead of move day.

When packing and loading, the movers will fill out all the necessary inventory paperwork and carefully prepare everything

The subsequent phase of ensuring your documentation is accurate and complete happens on pack day and move day. Your crew will be specifically trained regarding the special document requirements for international relocations. They will make sure that the inventory is accurate. One main component of this is that our crews are required to pack or visually confirm every box in the shipment. This allows us to verify that nothing is going to be moved that is not permitted into your destination. It also allows us the time to accurately detail every item on your inventory – a required component of following through on customs regulations.

Global Relocation Specialist will ensure everything is ready to go to limit delays

Your Global Relocation Specialist will make sure all the paperwork is correct and complete. From there, they will talk with you about the timing of both your air and sea shipments. Customs delays will be reduced because Corrigan Moving is committed to being sure your move is ready to go.
