Shipping Furniture Overseas

When moving overseas, it’s important to consider how shipping furniture works and how much it will cost. Each household move is different, and the processes involved in international furniture shipping will not be the same for everyone. That is why it is essential to compare quotes from moving companies. This will allow you to not only find the best removalist suited for your move, but to also have a good idea of how much your move will cost.  

How Does Furniture Shipping Work? 

On moving day, your removalist will disassemble your furniture and move it into a container. When you ship furniture overseas, you can do this in two ways: by air or by sea. Shipping by air is by far the fastest option, but also the most expensive. Normally, you will send your furniture by sea, and it will take a few weeks to arrive. You will also want to check with your removalist whether you will have a container all to yourself (FCL) or a shared container (LCL). 

Whether you ship by air or by sea, shipping furniture abroad is complicated. For example, there are different customs and duties in each country. Always consult an experienced international mover for specific advice on how best to ship your furniture. These professionals can guide you through the international furniture shipping process and help you find the best price for your move. 

How Much Moving Furniture Overseas Costs 

When you request moving quotes to ship your furniture abroad, a mover will come to your house to do a survey. Amongst other things, he will look at how much furniture you want to send abroad with you. It is therefore important that before the survey takes place, you know what furniture you want to ship and which furniture you want to either store, sell or throw away. Indeed, selling your furniture can help towards your moving costs!  

The costs involved in your move will be quoted to you by the mover. There is no one price for all, as the moving costs will be determined by how much you want to ship, how difficult it is to ship your furniture, where you want to ship your belongings too, and any additional services you may require. We recommend you get quotes from several movers so you can compare. Remember: price and quality are not the same!
