International Moving Services

Moving involves planning and preparation. But when it comes to moving internationally, there are even more things to consider. Visas, job-hunting, health care, and other support systems need to be in place when you make the move from one country to another. You are wise to partner with a company that is involved in many international moves each year and will be able to guide you through the process with ease.

Bekins Northwest is trusted by families, corporations, and governments around the world with the complete management of their international moving services. With over 110 years in the moving and storage industry, we understand the regulations, requirements, customs, immigration, housing, and culture necessary to perform a successful international relocation. You get the global reach of Bekins Van Lines with the local responsiveness of our 10, family-owned, Washington branch locations. Most importantly, you avoid the potential delays and expenses that are often encountered when contracting less experienced international moving companies.

Each international move is as unique as the customer who is requesting to be moved. Whether you are moving for work, retirement, family, or adventure – whether you are a do-it-yourselfer who just wants a little help or you would rather not lift a finger during the moving process – we have the people, equipment, and experience to meet and exceed your expectations of what an international move should be. Allow us to create the perfect international move for you.

What You Should Know About Long Distance Moving

When moving internationally, timely preparation is the key to a successful relocation. You should contact Bekins Northwest at least 7 to 10 weeks prior to your intended move date. This will allow us sufficient time to confirm documentation requirements, pre-book international transportation services, and advise the destination agent of your incoming international shipment. If you request a door-to-door move, than all the transportation charges should be included in the price that is quoted to you. However, even during an international door-to-door move, you will be responsible for customs clearance charges plus any applicable taxes or duties on your shipment. Review the quote for your international move with your Bekins Northwest Relocation Specialist to ensure that you understand all the terms of your quotation and any extra charges that you may face moving forward so that there are no surprises.
