International moving can be one of life's most exciting yet challenging experiences. In a world of heightened security regulations and complex transportation systems, it has become increasingly more important to select a partner who is experienced in understanding the requirements of a global market. Atlas International Worldwide Movers & Freight Forwarders can supply a full range of International relocation services throughout the world with our network of certified partners. We believe that International relocations are unique to each individual customer. Our international team will tailor a solution to meet your unique requirements, while maintaining the highest quality service and delivery standards within your cost structure.
As soon as you consider an International relocation, contact with an International mover should be made. Pre-planning and preparation is the key to a successful overseas relocation. Many contributing factors need to be confirmed in order to provide you the most accurate information regarding cost, customs requirements, customs documentation or shipping restrictions for your specific destination country. If you are shipping by sea, you will be charged by the volume of your shipment based on the number of Cubic Meters (CBM) you are sending and not by the weight of your shipment. Compared to service by Air, the transit time to the destination is longer, but you will find that the cost of shipping is much less.
The general misconception is that all items must fit in a 1 meter x 1 meter x 1 meter cube to ship by sea. That is not the case; you can ship any size since each of your items will be measured individually, and added up to obtain the final measurements in terms of cubic meters. Shipment of customers who use our Economy Service or Economy Plus Service will be palletized at the bonded warehouse and will be consolidated with other shipments. Customers shipping using our First Class service will have their entire shipment put inside custom made shipping crates. For smaller LCL (Less than Container Load) shipments, each item will be securely packaged and all items will be secured inside the crate.
