The call has come, you have been offered a position overseas. Or perhaps you have decided that you need a complete change and international waters are beckoning. Maybe you are fortunate enough to see a future chasing the sun. Whatever the reason, moving overseas is a big commitment that requires months of forethought, planning and research. Finding international moving companies that will get you there with all your belongings intact is where your search begins.

Unlike a national move, relocating overseas requires extensive logistical planning. Finding the relevant information on local moving companies is easy, but finding a South African company that can do an international move for you might be slightly trickier.

What to Look For in International Moving Companies

Besides the copious amounts of paperwork that must be completed on your part before the actual move can take effect, you need to thoroughly research international moving companies in South Africa that will guide you through the entire process of the move. Over and above the physical packing process, they need to be well informed on the options that they can deliver to you, including insurance requirements as well as the different types of clearances needed. Most importantly, you need to find international moving companies that include the relocation of your extended family, and pets.

Choose the Best

Cut through all the red tape and unnecessary hours of searching for international moving companies by choosing Elliott. Recognised as the premier moving company in South Africa, our services include international relocations that encompass every aspect that is required, including your pets. Elliott will not only get you to your end destination, but we will be with you every step of the way to ensure your transition to your new environment is done as smoothly as possible.

It’s All in the Measurements

Relocating internationally means that you have limited packing space and every inch of space needs to be carefully accounted for. Weight is the biggest concern as a container can only hold so much and if additional container space is needed, provisions must be made. Elliott will appoint you with a sales executive that specialises in the field of international moves and will provide you with a step-by-step process on what is needed. From pre-move surveys, and itemised inventories right through to measuring furniture, your household items will be packed into your containers according to your order of preference.  

Making sure that all your possessions will be safely shipped or air-freighted, including your antique writing desk or vintage MG is why, when selecting international moving companies, Elliott should be your only choice.

Possessions and Memories Need Special Care

International moving companies that take care of the packing is what you can expect from Elliott. We normally undertake this at the residence as it requires specialised care and attention. If the entire contents of your household need to be packed, please understand that this takes time, even though we try to do this as quickly as possible and with minimal disruption to you. As volume accounts for shipping charges, we use as much available space as possible. We won’t leave anything behind. 

Attention to Detail

In the rush to get all the paperwork that you need, you might end up forgetting something important. When it comes to international moving companies, not only will Elliott arrange and pack for you, but we will also provide you with a checklist prior to departure that itemises the important documents required. From customs clearance certificates to police clearance for vehicles and your pet’s inoculation papers, you won’t arrive unprepared. We go the extra mile by providing you with an overseas removal checklist just to remind you to take your personal paperwork with you.

Finding the Right Company

At Elliott, we understand the toll an international move takes on the family. We will try to alleviate part of the upheaval and stress by dealing with the logistics. Through our global network of movers, your belongings will not only arrive at their intended destination, but we can ensure that they are unpacked too, giving you time to take in your new surroundings. With the full bouquet of services offered by Elliott, there is no need to look for any other international moving companies.

Finding that needle in the haystack isn’t as hard as it seems, all you have to do is contact Elliott.
