San Francisco’s Premier International Moving CompanyPosted on: Wednesday, January 31st, 2018
Whether you’re leaving the beautiful Bay area for distant shores or relocating to San Francisco from overseas, you’ll need the help of an experienced international moving company to make the transition a smooth one.
An international move isn’t the same as other long-distance relocations. Dealing with delays, customs, and other factors can be a hassle—unless you have a professional full-service moving company on your side. Choosing the right moving and storage company can be the difference between a nightmare of a move and an easy relocation, and asking the right question is an important step in making a smart choice.
Here are a few questions to ask as you look for the perfect residential movers:
How Much Experience Does Your Company Have with International Moves?
Again, international moves are different than domestic long-distance relocations. You need a company that has abundant experience handling the intricacies of overseas moves. The last thing you want is movers that are learning as they go while you wait for your shipments.
NOR-CAL Moving Services has partnered with Allied International to provide the best international moving services on the market. We’re proud to have been named Allied’s “International Agent of the Year.”
Could You Tell Me About Your Customer Reviews and Industry Affiliations?
When a moving company has industry affiliations, it means that they are willing to abide by strict guidelines—and that means a better experience for you.

Is Custom Crating Available?
Proper packing is important for any move, but even more so for an overseas relocation. This helps ensure your belongings won’t suffer any damage during the long journey to your new home.
NOR-CAL Moving Services’ has a lot of experience with international moving, and we have perfected our export packing and crating methods.
Who Takes Care of Customs?
Customs is another obstacle in an international move, but you shouldn’t have to worry about it. An experienced international household moving company should be able to take care of it for you.

Will I Have a Single Point of Contact?
Knowing who to call if you have a question or concern will go a long way in easing the stress of an overseas move.

Do You Offer Long-Term Storage?
When making an overseas move, it’s common to want to store some of your belongings. If your household moving company also provides storage, that will make the entire process easier for you.
