Below, we discuss how experienced international movers carry out successful relocations:

Initial Consultation 

Weeks or months before any belongings are packed or shipped, an Able representative will meet with you to discuss your move. Our team members will take stock of your belongings, note potential challenges, and get a rough sense of your timeline. This initial consultation develops into clients discussing destination details and other specific needs with a professional. 

After the initial assessment, Able will provide a transparent quote that includes shipping costs, customs duty taxes, and delivery fees

Planning and Preparation

Once they decide to book Able’s services, clients are assigned to an Able Relocation Coordinator. These professionals act as resources who guide customers through moving processes, including downsizing, planning, and scheduling. Your Relocation Coordinator will be available to assist and support you at every stage of your move.

As you prepare for your move, ensure you obtain the necessary travel forms, such as shipping instructions, customs documents, policies, and insurance. Your Relocation Coordinator is happy to help you get ahold of and complete these documents. 

Packing and Shipping

International Moving Company Ashburn VA

In the days before your move, Able will pack your belongings. We protect your items for the duration of the journey by storing them in international crates or air containers when necessary. Items that clear customs travel by sea, ground, or air, depending on your destination.

You can secure any items that customs regulations forbid from international shipping in Able’s Storage facilities. Our high-quality storage services keep your belongings safe until you return state-side.  

Delivery and Unpacking 

After clearing customs and the import/export process, Able’s worldwide partners will transport your belongings to your new home. All our international moving associates are U.S. Embassy-approved, FIDI-approved, IAM-Trusted, or LACMA-certified. Thanks to these vetting processes, our team can guarantee your belongings will be unpacked with the same care and attention they received at home.
