Moving Internationally? International laws and heightened shipping & security stipulations require Humboldt Storage & Moving to either pack all of your belongings and/or inspect any “PBO” or “Packed By Owner” boxes. The term “PBO” on the standard carrier inventory is prohibited by Customs in any country.

Our packing requirements help ensure that your shipment does not include any restricted and/or prohibited items which can lead to costly move delays, quarantine, or your belongings being seized by Customs. We assembled a list of common non-allowable items that you will need to address prior to your pack and load dates HERE.

To ensure that your belongings stand up to the rigors of international shipping, Humboldt Storage & Moving uses only the highest standard of international packing and wrapping materials available in all of its international moving services including custom-made internal wooden crates when necessary.

We carefully select the correct packing materials to ensure that your cherished belongings and delicate items are ready for:

  • International Air Shipments
  • Standard Lift-Van Containers
  • Standard Air Containers (Such as “D”, “LDN”, and “E” Containers)

Items that are not packed into standard boxes must be fully professionally wrapped in high quality international wrap materials prior to leaving your home to protect the integrity of the goods from damage.

Please remember to carry any items of personal importance or sentimental value with you instead of having them packed with your shipment. View our “Take With Me” Inventory form HERE.
