Packing and Unloading

packing

You are now ready to being your international moving experience! Our expert crews will do everything they can to make sure your international moving is a complete success. The first step in ensuring a successful international moving experience is completing the packing and loading.

What can you do to prepare?

To help your crew in the international moving process, you can begin by sorting your belongings. You can help your Allied International crew by setting aside items that need to go into storage, need to be packed last or those items which will remain in your home.

Remember to pack and set aside all the personal items that will be traveling with you. Your coverage will not cover money or jewelry. Also, it is a good idea to carefully set aside your passport and important paperwork so that it doesn't get "caught up" in the move.

Your move team

International moving requires experienced, highly trained international packers to ensure that packing and loading takes place correctly. It does not matter if you are moving to the England or China, using skill, care and attention, our packers have been trained to use specific international packing materials that will protect your possessions during each phase of the move.

The first person you will meet will be the crew supervisor. He or she will review the details of the move with you and clarify your expectations or needs for the move, along with any special instructions you may have. If anything has changed since the time of your original estimate, please advise the crew supervisor so appropriate arrangements can be made. The supervisor will walk around your home and plan the packing process in the most efficient way.

Protecting your home

Allied International takes great care to make sure that your home is protected during the international moving process. We're careful to protect your carpets and floors, banisters, doors and vulnerable areas to prevent damage.

Protecting your possessions

Each member of your international moving team will have under gone comprehensive training in effective and efficient packing techniques suitable for the rigors of an international move.

Your household goods will be individually wrapped in our special six-layer padded paper wrap and packed in the appropriate containers. Crates and casings are built specifically for items that require special protection during international moving, while more standard goods will be protected with sturdy wrapping and sturdy cartons.

You can rest assured that you'll get the highest quality materials and packers in order to protect your prized belongings during the long journey ahead.

Important - your inventory

Remember to check that everything that you want to include in the shipment has been packed. We will create an inventory during the packing process. The inventory will contain brief details of the contents of each carton as well as the wrapped furniture. You will be asked to sign the inventory form after the packing has been completed.

A copy of the inventory will be forwarded to our office at your destination to arrange customs clearance and delivery. Remember to keep a copy of this important document!

Shipment details

After packing and loading is completed for international moving, you will be sent shipping details that confirm your vessel or flight number, the estimated time of arrival at port or airport and the name of the Allied International contact at your destination who will clear your items through customs and arrange delivery.

Allied Van Lines

The overall service I received. Everyone was helpful, friendly, and answered my questions immediately. I was told the driver was fantastic and helped out a lot.

They were very professional including the local agent. The lady who owned it went out of the way to be helpful. Her name was Julie. She was awesome. I really liked her. It was a nasty weather day. The driver was 4 hours late.

I liked the way everything was handled & we were kept in contact through everything. The coordinator, Nora, stayed in constant contact with us throughout the entire process. The driver was fine but I was not happy with the helper. The helper did not want to be there, no personality & was the complete opposite of driver.

I rated a seven because I was satisfied with 70% of it. I didn't like having an uncertain delivery date. Weather conditions might have been the reason. One box had a blade sticking out and I was cut. That is why I rated packing a one. All the other boxes were fine.

Allied Van Lines

They answered a lot of my questions and did a non binding estimate. Just the fact that I knew they were big enough where I would get an affiliated driver and not just anyone. They did a shuttle thing and I didn't want a shuttle so some items did not arrive. It seemed like the driver glossed over the mismatch of the numbers and disregarded the missing items.

The special request was not completed and a few items were damaged. They did not complete my special request. I told several people that I wanted my mattress wrapped and it was not.

The overall courtesy and professionalism that was displayed, along with the price. I have not found a small fridge that I have been looking for. It could be in a box in the garage.

The communication was good but there was miscommunication between the driver and Allied. I was supposed to have it done earlier but there was some miscommunication between my company and Allied. The driver was awesome.
