Moving Quotes Seattle

Most international moves from Seattle go through either the Port of Seattle or the Port of Tacoma, both very large and prolific shipping ports moving thousands of containers and ships every year. From your convenient location in Seattle, you can easily take advantage of these nearby ports to ship your goods economically to their next port of call.

For your move, you can choose between a full container load (FCL) or a less than container load (LCL). A full container load is an entire 40 ft container. An LCL is when you share a portion of a container. Your items could be shipped with miscellaneous items for multiple customers. The drawback is that your container will be handled more when it is shared, and your shipment may be delayed if it needs to make other stops for goods to be loaded or unloaded. For this reason, many customers choose the FCL even if they can’t completely fill the container.

Packing To Move Abroad

Preparing for an overseas move can feel overwhelming. Not only will you need to learn everything you can about your new country’s rules for imports, but you will also need to make difficult decisions about what to bring and what to leave behind.

For example, you must consider if the items that you have lived within Seattle still make sense where you are going. Differences in climate can have impacts on antique furniture. Wired electronics in North America won’t work in Europe. When space is at a premium, it pays to think about these things before you drag your favorite blow dryer all the way across the ocean just to throw it away when you get there.

Your local embassy can provide you with some general guidance.

No matter where you are moving overseas, you will need to pack your belongings with greater care than for a domestic move. The ocean can be an unpredictable place, so your goods will only be as secure as you pack them. If you can’t shake that box of glasses without anything breaking, you haven’t packed it well enough. Working with a professional moving company like Three Movers gives you the greatest chance of success, as we use high-quality packing materials and containers to keep your goods safe and secure.

Customer Reviews

I hired Three Movers to help me move to a new office a few miles away from my old location. While it was a very short distance, there were so many things that needed to be taken care of as we have a few computers, printers and other office equipment that needed to be handled with care. The men that showed up to assess the office were really friendly and on moving day, they had everything carefully packaged up and moved far quicker than I expected. This really helped me because I was able to re-open several days sooner than I had anticipated. That was really beneficial to my business and I appreciate the efficient work that was done. Thanks so much for the help with my move and I will definitely be referring you all to any friends or family that need a dependable moving company!
