International Household Shipping and Moving
At Allied Pickfords, we understand how stressful household goods moving can be; having all your cherished personal effects packed up and shipped off to cross the ocean in a plane or aboard a ship. As part of our commitment to helping you ensure your employees have a smooth transition to their new homes, we provide services whose quality and level of personalization no other company can match.
Guaranteeing a Seamless Moving Experience
Our history goes back 400 years to a time when moving meant loading everything up on a horse-drawn carriage. Over that time, we’ve established an unparalleled network of service providers and developed processes ensuring that no other company will be able to compete with the moving experience we can offer you. We facilitate relocations all over the world and offer customized solutions for any type of move, whether it’s local, interstate, or international.
Making International Household Moving Simple
Allied Pickfords has multilingual experts all over the world - people with local experience and knowledge who understand your destination and the challenges that your employees might face during their move.
Allied Pickfords also gives your employees’ access to GlobalCom, our state-of-the-art online tracking system. With GlobalCom, they can find out the status of their move, 24-hours a day, seven days a week. They will be able to review critical dates, including survey, pickup, port departure and arrival, customs clearance and delivery.
In addition, all our Move Consultants are equipped with iPads, so that precise and thorough inventories of your employee’s possessions can be recorded in order to provide the organization with an accurate cost of move.
Allied Pickfords are not only the experts to contact for the international relocation of your employees, we are also highly specialized in local and domestic moves. Our skilled crews give the same attention to a local move as they would to an overseas relocation. That means you get the expertise of a trusted international mover, at competitive local rates.
Committed to stress-free household shipping and moving
Every relocating employee moving internationally will be assigned a personal move coordinator who will oversee the process from the planning stages to shipping and all the way to unpacking. This move-coordinator will also serve as the single source for answers to important questions and guidance at each step of the move.
