The world is a busier place nowadays and when you contemplate something as big as a house move you won't want the stress of managing such a complicated process yourself.

I remember trying to manage a big move on my own, packing 30 cardboard boxes and then trying to carry them all into a van. By the end of the process I had a near hernia and chronic exhaustion. And all this while trying to hold down a full-time job.

Much better to entrust the whole operation to experts while you get on with the rest of your life. Let the professionals take the strain. In any case, experienced removal people will always do a better job than you, notwithstanding your good intentions.

When you say goodbye to all your belongings you will want to know that they are in safe hands. And when your final destination is reached, you will want your household goods to be unloaded with the same care and attention to detail with which they were loaded.

You will need a firm that ensures that expert crews going through international moving receive extra care due to the more rigorous transport. If you work with a firm like Allied Pickfords you can expect various services. English-speaking crew leaders will be available to assist you at delivery. All items will be carefully unloaded and crosschecked with your inventory list and will be placed in the correct rooms. Fragile items, such as glass and china, will be unpacked on flat surfaces. All packing materials and debris will be quickly removed from your home.

In the unlikely event that any item in your shipment is damaged, a professional removal company can settle claims quickly and easily through its in-house claims department. Its online claim settlement process enables you to submit a claim at the click of a button, allowing you to focus on your new life. Obviously, it is in everyone's interest that no harm comes to your merchandise during the moving process. But should an issue arise you will wish it to be resolved quickly and professionally.

At the end of the moving process you will be asked to sign and date a packing list as the last step in your international moving process. This is confirmation that all items have been delivered.

You will also be asked to sign a delivery report or ‘Out turn Report.’ This report will clearly state the condition of your consignment when unpacked. Your crew will return your delivery report and packing list to your Coordinator to confirm that your consignment has been delivered completely to your satisfaction.

When you choose a firm like Allied Pickford for your international moving, you can be assured quality service every step of the way. From the packing of your belongings to the unloading and unpacking of your shipment, it handles your international moving from beginning to end.
