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.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY...

They managed to put together everything and come up with the dates we needed in a short notice. It was a move that came about real quick and they were able to accommodate us. There was a little mix up with the furniture arriving earlier than it was supposed to. We were supposed to be there on the 10th of December but they showed up on the 9th of December.

Allied Van Lines

This is my 6th corporate move and the crew was without a doubt the best. The crew was excellent, packed well and was very organized. The packers and delivery team was the same team.

It was my experience with the driver that I had. In the crazy and stressful time of the move the driver was dependable. The driver had good interpersonal skills. The driver was very professional.

I rated a nine b/c I don't give tens. It varies with local vendors. Every area has different crews. Overall, we had a good experience. Our items were in storage for eight years. Some box lids were broken, but that was the result of long storage and not the crew.
