Full Service Movers in Stone Mountain, GA & Atlanta, GA
As your full service movers, Beltmann Moving and Storage of Stone Mountain and Atlanta, GA is here to ensure your international move goes perfectly from start to finish
If the time has come for you and your family to move overseas, your first step needs to be finding full service movers who can handle an international move and ensure your household goods make the passage to your new home intact. This type of move is significantly different from a domestic move in the US and without the right help, can be more than a little confusing, especially if this is to be your first international move. At Beltmann, we are here to work with you from start to finish ensuring your household goods arrive at your new home safely.
If you prefer to do your own packing, we can provide you with a selection of professional grade packing materials that will protect your possessions on the journey. Alternatively, we can provide you with one of our teams of professional packers to do the work for you.
Making Sure Your Shipment is Ready for Customs
Of the many things you must deal with in your relocation overseas, is that particular country’s customs laws. As your full service movers, we can provide you with a checklist that matches your new country’s customs laws. Simply put, if you attempt to ship items in your household goods that are not permitted in your new host country (such as alcohol in the middle east), your goods could be held up for months in customs and you could face fines or worse.
Bear in mind that the customs agents of the country you are moving to are employees of that country’s government. They have hundreds of shipments to inspect on any given day, if they see anything in your shipment that has even the remotest possibility of not passing their customs laws, your shipment can be held up for weeks or longer while the items are being investigated.
As you prepare for your move, you and your family must also pass through customs and immigration. Be sure you photocopy everyone’s passports and place a set of the copies in a secure location in your household goods and in your luggage. This way, if your original passports get lost, you have copies that most officials will accept long enough for you to request new ones from the US Consulate’s Office in the country you are moving to.
As one of the top international full service movers in the Atlanta area, we will work with you to make sure you have all required paperwork properly completed before the time to leave for your new home arrives
