Packing and Unpacking
Packing your belongings for an air or sea shipment is different from a domestic trip. We use only the highest quality materials and appropriate wrapping methods to prevent damage to your belongings. From building custom crates to padding furniture correctly for container transport we protect your items for the long journey. At your destination, our local partners will unpack high-value items for your inspection. All packing debris will be removed.
Going overseas for a short-term assignment? We can pack and store your belongings in our climate-regulated warehouses while you take just the necessities with you.
Air vs. Sea Transport
We can ship your belongings by air or sea. While air transport is more expensive it may be the right choice based on time constraints or if you need essential items delivered more quickly than the bulk of your household goods. Ocean transport has a longer delivery time but offers an affordable option for the majority of your delivery.
