Whether you consider living overseas for a short or long period, international relocation comes with a unique set of challenges relating to the storage, packing, transporting, and shipping of your belongings, including your vehicle.

As an experienced, reliable international moving company, we will help make the move of your family and/or business more efficient and save you money in the process. Our international relocation experts will help you stay organized, allowing you to facilitate a seamless moving experience.

● To maximize your savings, we can leave the packing and unpacking to you, while we handle the transportation of your belongings, as well as all of the paperwork when relocating your home or business to a new country.

● We also offer hands-on service options that will save you money while reducing your workload and stress.

International Moving Insurance

At LAC, we highly recommend that those who are moving internationally purchase their own cargo insurance for the transportation of their belongings. International cargo shipping undergoes a lot of handling and environmental strains that can damage items in the shipping process.

While all cargo companies provide liability insurance, it is often as low as $500 for an entire container. Acquiring an additional insurance policy can ensure that in the event that your valuables would be damaged during the shipping journey, the cost of the damages would be entirely taken care of.

The International Relocation Process

Anyone who has moved either down the block or around the world understands that the moving experience can be stressful, time-consuming, and complicated. Our moving and shipping specialists are dedicated to making your international relocation as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Our affordable relocation services provide the cheapest way to ship your personal effects, household goods, and car overseas. We offer first class ocean shipping or other modes of freight moving options for your belongings, such as ground transportation and air transportation.

The first step is to contact our LAC experts to arrange a suitable date and time for the move. Our experts will help you to select the most suitable container, which will be delivered to you. Once your belongings are loaded, and the moving day arrives, we will pick up your container and have it transported to the ship terminal. When the loading process is finished, the container is sealed for international transport. While your container is in transit, LAC will remain in constant contact with the ocean carrier moving your goods. Most importantly, all export documentation will be handled by our LAC moving professionals.

Choosing Your Right Container

An important step when moving internationally is choosing the right container. Our experts will work with you to determine which size and type of container is the best for your specific needs. Household good shipping commonly uses dry storage container, but additional options include refrigerated, ventilated, and insulated containers, as well as car carriers.
