International shipping costs

You are moving internationally. That means there is a lot that needs to be arranged and taken care of. Moving internationally can cost a lot of money, but you can also save a lot on your international shipping costs. Calculating international shipping costs: be effective!

International shipping costs

The moving process generally looks like this: packing, loading, transport followed by unloading and unpacking. The costs depends on different factors. Are you moving from Holland to Belgium, the distance is not as long as when you move from Denmark to Portugal. How longer the distance, how higher the costs. If your destination is hard or difficult to reach, your costs will be higher too since it takes more time and effort to transport everything. If you want to know more about shipping your furniture, see International furniture shipping. These are factors you cannot really save money on, but there are some things you can do yourself to lower the international shipping costs. Check out the tips! Take a look at European Commission for more information about international shipping within Europe.

How to lower your international shipping costs: Tips!

  • Truck parts: Most often the mover will combine your removal with others to keep your costs down. This saves the cost of transport and that benefit is passed on you. Please note that you are somewhat less flexible in terms of time as you share the car.
  • Volume Down: Movers calculate their prices based on volume. If all furniture and belongings of a family you are accumulating quite rapidly to 40 cubic meters. Try raising the volume down by taking away things that you do not plan to use later or you are planning to replace.
  • Do the (un)packing yourself: You can save money by doing the packing yourself. You can request the mover to pack fragile and expensives objects like antique, but it saves a lot of money to do the rest yourself. The same counts for unpacking yourself.
  • Focus on quality of quotes: The cheapest estimate or quote might not be the best, as some movers tend to overlook your items. In the end your move might become more expensive. Be sure that all your items are carefully noted and calculated.
