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.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY...

In general, I was very satisfied. The issue was the delivery, we had a lot of stuff. The driver wasn't able to get another person to help with the unloading. It was a really long day. They were nice people. There were some marks on the wall, but we cleaned it. It seemed they rushed toward the end and they were here about 9 or 10 hours. They should've had another person to help.

The driver that we had his name was Dave, he was fantastic. The only issue we had is with the coordinator. We were not given any information on what to expect from the coordinator.

The fact that Allied has been in busy for a long time and is a coast to coast mover. The only thing is I only had a few things to move and it was expensive.

Overall, the 2 men that came worked hard all day. they were fun to have around. It was a pleasure having them do what I asked. I enjoyed the flexibility and personality of the men who loved their job. It's challenging when they don't speak English. At times it was hard to find a person who did. They were amazing, courteous, and hardworking. Angela, was quick to respond to my questions.

The reason it was not a 5 was b/c the guy that packed was great, but I asked that they pay special attention to the sofa. They wrapped the top & arms, but the feet was missing chunks out of the legs.
