We provide comprehensive customs clearance support

Starts with the inventory – what you can take and what is not allowed

Smooth and efficient international moves start with a quality in-home or virtual home survey. At this time, our international moving specialists will see all the things in your home that is relocating. They will build an inventory of all parts of your move – air freight, sea freight, and storage. This will be a beginning point to start discussions with your Global Relocation Specialist about what things you would like to include in each shipment. In addition, you will be updated on the exact regulations for the country you are moving to. Every country has different and distinctive regulations for what items you’re or are not permitted to bring into the country. Knowing this information up front means you’ll be prepared prior to move day.

On move day, the movers will complete all the needed inventory documents and carefully wrap everything

The subsequent phase of being sure your documentation is accurate and fully executed occurs on packing day and moving day. Your crew will be expertly educated regarding the unique documentation laws for international relocations. They will make sure that the inventory is correct. One major part of this is that our crews are required to pack or visually verify every box in the shipment. This gives us the ability to double check that nothing is going to be transported that isn’t allowed into your destination country. In addition, it gives us the time to accurately detail every item on your inventory – a required aspect of following through on customs requirements.

Global Relocation Specialist will ensure everything is finalized to limit delays

Your Global Relocation Specialist will ensure all the paperwork is correct and finalized. After that, they will talk with you regarding the arranging of both your air and sea shipments. Customs delays will be reduced because Corrigan Moving is committed to ensuring your relocation is set.
