No two International Moves are the same. Each and every International Relocation starts with an initial consultation with our one of our Global Move Specialists to better understand your specific needs.
After our in-depth needs analysis, we will get back to you with a detailed International Moving and Relocation Plan including your customized proposal.
Throughout the entire international relocation process, we work with you every step of the way to identify the paperwork, packing requirements and customs documentation necessary to ensure a smooth transition to your new destination.
Our comprehensive approach to international relocation management is based on decades of experience and has been designed to remove the stress from the process so that you can focus on what is important…your new life!
Phase 1 : Understanding Your International Move
The first step in your move is a consultation with a Humboldt Global Relocation Consultant. We need to understand your needs and explain the preparation involved in an international move.
During our initial consultation, we’ll assess your needs by visually surveying the items you will be moving and/or storing. Humboldt Storage & Moving also offers both short and long term storage in our safe and secure storage warehouse located conveniently just South of Boston, MA in Canton, MA.
Following the consultation, you will receive a customized relocation proposal typically within 48 hours.
Phase 2 : Booking Your Move
Upon acceptance of our proposal, a well trained & highly knowledgeable Humboldt Global Move Specialist will get in touch with you to book your move.
As your single point of contact, their phone number is the only one you will need to address any questions or issues related to your move. During your initial conversation, they will explain the specific details of your move and gather unique important information and requirements that will make your move go smoothly.
If you have pets, high-value items, need temporary housing, or have special timeline considerations, now is the time to communicate them to your Global Move Specialist. Unlike a domestic move, each unique detail or special request may have ramifications on multiple legs of the journey.
Having accurate information is critical to a successful international move, and one of the key goals of the Global Move Specialist is to make it as easy for you as possible.
A major part of this involves planning for customs. Rules and regulations can vary greatly from country to country. While we know them well, it is just as important we gain a detailed picture of the type of items you will be moving, so we can make the necessary arrangements and inform you of important information.
This information will also enable us to present the correct insurance options to you, book the right modes of transportation, and plan for proper packing, wrapping, and crating.
Phase 3 : Planning Your International Move
Your Humboldt Global Move Specialist will call to confirm and secure exact dates and times. In addition, they will follow up with you regarding customs documents, moving requirements, and needs at your destination.
We will also walk you through the Humboldt International Moving Checklist:
- One Month Until Move
- Book moving date as far in advance as possible.
- Arrange insurance coverage for move.
- Make list of what goes and what st
