Comparing International Moving Companies

comparing companies

Sorting through the various international moving companies can be daunting. But choosing the right mover can make all the difference in the world. You want to choose a company who has the knowledge, expertise and resources to get you where you need to go. You can stop looking for these qualities in other international moving companies, because Allied has them all.

Start Searching for an International Moving Company

To begin your questioning of international moving companies, be sure to find out how many moves the company has under its belt, and how many international offices it has. Allied has more than 500 agents in North America, offices in over 40 countries across Europe and Asia-Pacific and representatives in 135 more countries around the world. Allied moves over 1,000 families a day, 365 days a year and manages more than 200,000 shipments annually. Can the other international moving companies say that?

Another consideration is the ability to easily track your shipment. Are you able to track your possessions online throughout every stage of the move? Allied's online shipment tracking service ensures that you will know where your belongings are throughout their transport overseas. By entering your shipment number via our online portal, you are one click away from knowing where your international shipment is at all times.

What to Ask a Company: Moving Specifics

  • Ask for references from customers they've recently moved. All reputable international moving companies will have plenty of testimonials from satisfied customers. They will also have very few, if any, complaints through the Better Business Bureau.
  • Make sure the international moving companies are willing to assign you a Coordinator to oversee your move from start to finish. Without this person, you'll deal with a new employee at every stage the move, increasing the likelihood of some aspect of your move falling between the cracks. At Allied, we provide you with a personal move coordinator from the very beginning of your international move. This coordinator will be your only point of contact throughout your journey overseas, meticulously handling every last detail of your move.

Other Considerations for an International Moving Company

When you are choosing between international moving companies, be sure you understand a few basic things. First, be aware of the rates and charges that will apply to your move; not all international moving companies will be upfront about all the moving fees. Be certain of the mover's liability for your belongings, valuation coverage they offer and type of claims protection they have. Should anything happen to your belongings during a move, this liability coverage is indispensible. Also, ask international moving companies how pickup and delivery will work. Though it seems very basic, on-time pickup and delivery is essential when traveling overseas.

There was not any communication from Allied. I had to make calls to get information about the move. The movers and drivers did an excellent job. I also had some damaged items.

Allied Van Lines

It was delivered & picked up on time. The delivery people were very professional & polite. The only thing keeping it a 10 is that the price was a little high but it was worth it.

There is always room to improve but I have already told my neighbors to call them. They broke a couple of things. They could not fit down my driveway.
