Q: I require the services for an International Packer and Mover. How much in advance should I call for the pre-move survey?
Ans: For any International shipping services, the earlier you call us, the better. Ideally You can call Globe Moving, at least 6-8 weeks prior to the move. This way we can plan your International shipping better to make it a smooth one.
Q: How long will the pre-move survey last?
Ans: Usually a survey for International packing and moving will take about an hour.
Q: What is the purpose of a survey for international shipping?
Ans: For all international packing and moving, we conduct a pre-move survey due to the following reasons:
Q: How should I prepare myself for the international packing and moving survey?
Ans: Identify the goods in your house and decide the articles you intend shipping, storing, donating, leaving behind etc. Show all the items you intend carrying to the surveyor. This helps us in making a better and more accurate estimate. Let us know about your special needs or areas of concern. Ask as many questions and clear all your doubts, however simple they may be. Make sure you give the same brief to all the international packers and movers surveying your goods
Q: Will my goods undergo customs examination?
Ans: When the goods leave India, your goods will be physically opened & examined. Globe Moving will safely repack these goods for you (not feasible at all ports). At destination, depending upon the country you are shipping to, your goods may or may not be physically examined. In Europe & America, generally customs formalities mean only documentation and X-Ray. However, sometimes, random checks are done on personal effects. In such cases there will be an physical / extensive examination fee which is billed at cost. In other countries, generally your goods will be physically examined.
Q: Can I also pack my goods myself?
Ans: You can do this, but be aware of the potential problems. For instance, insurance companies will not pay out on goods packed by their owner. Also, Customs officials will almost certainly target goods that you have packed like locked suitcases. If you really must pack some of your goods, leave the cartons unsealed so that the Globe Moving packing crew can inspect the contents, seal the cartons and make a note in the inventory.
Q: How long will the packing take?
Ans: Every home is different but for a 2000 sq ft of household items, anywhere between two to three days will be required for packing and loading. This is based on a three to four person crew handling the packing & loading. If timing is a constraint, let us know about your international packing and moving requirements and Globe Moving & Storage Co. will coordinate the move accordingly.
Q: What are the items that I can take and can't take with me?
Ans: Generally speaking, for international shipping, you can take most of the personal stuff like clothes, books, curios, utensils, pictures etc. However, all flammable items, liquids, perishable foods and other items that can deteriorate should not be shipped. Think carefully about alcohol & electrical goods. They may attract heavy duty and the electrical goods may not be compatible. Contact Globe Moving if you require more information about international shipping and customs regulations of the country you are moving to.
Q: Anything that should definitely not be carried?
Ans: Well, mainly those things you might expect - Antiques, drugs, alcohol (in some countries), weapons, ammunition, explosives, Ivory, animal skins, Sandalwood, pornography, Gold, Silver etc. In some countries additional restrictions may be applicable for items like food, meat, milk, poultry etc.
Q: Do I need insurance?
Ans: Globe Moving is a experienced International Packer and Mover and we use quality packing materials, have experienced crews to pack your goods etc. But this journey may be covering thousands of miles, experiencing different weather conditions, wide variations of temperature, and several forms of handling. The forces of nature and physics that a shipment has to undergo are unimaginable unless you've seen a freight ship go through an Atlantic swell with 60-ft waves washing over its cargo of shipping containers. So, Insurance is definitely a must and is really a bargain for any International shipping.
Q: What kind of insurance should I go in for?
Ans: There are different kinds of insurance packages available for international packing and moving. Eg: Indian Insurance, US Dollar Insurance, Declared value coverage, Replaceable value coverage etc. Globe Moving can give you additional information if required and can cover insurance for all types of International shipping insurance.
Q: How do I value my goods for insurance?
Ans: In general, you should think about what it would cost to replace your goods. When completing your insurance value, please be as detailed as possible. Remember to mark down all individual items that have a high replacement cost. It's better to have too much information than not enough in this instance. If you have any questions relating to the insurance coverage for international shipping, kindly contact Globe Moving.
