Moving your entire household can be expensive, no matter where you are moving to. But, if you are taking the whole family and moving overseas, you need to find as many ways as you can to keep your moving costs under control. Beltmann Moving and Storage of Chicago has been specializing in helping our customers save money no matter where they are moving for over 50 years. Here are a couple of ideas to help you stay within your budget from our international moving experts.

1. Pack Tight and Pack Right

Whether you have us pack for you or you do your own packing, our rates are based on density. Cubic boxes (square or rectangular) are the best choice as they let us pack your moving crates more efficiently. Our estimator will come to your home with this thought in mind, and his estimate will be based on conventional “dense” packing methods. If you have items that are odd shaped and require special shaped packaging, this can have a significant impact on your moving costs. Take a close look at items such as these; if you can replace them cheaply enough, you should consider not shipping them to help keep your moving costs under control.

2. Smooth Sailing Through Customs

Any time you move to another country, you will have to deal with their customs services. This includes your household goods just as much as the luggage you take with you through the airport. At Beltmann, we work with customs services in every country we deliver to in order to ensure we have the latest information on what can and cannot be brought into the country. By knowing this, we can help you avoid potential fines, impound fees, storage fees, legal fees, and the risk of being deported. All of which adds up to helping to keep your moving costs under control.
