How Can You Benefit From Partnering With Us?
We understand that there’s much to anticipate and plan for when moving overseas. When you choose us as your international moving company, your focus can remain on your other responsibilities and not on the stressful aspects of arranging an overseas relocation.
How Are We Different?
What makes us different is our ability to recognize your people’s and companies’ specific needs and then customize your international moving policy to the services required to reflect those needs. You need an international moving company with knowledge, experience and comprehensive resources to transport your team globally. You need Hansen Bros. and Allied International.
By meeting early in the process to understand your goals, we can put together a relocation policy that reflects those goals. With the plan in place, everyone will have the same expectations before the move takes place or is even discussed. This sets the table for a successful move and a happy and productive employee.
The planning process
Our international moving services begin with a complete no-obligation survey, keeping in mind the predetermined parameters already set in your company policy. We will be able to determine what will be moving, the services to be performed and any particular needs there may be regarding the shipment. Then, working together with our operations department, a comprehensive plan is constructed to address all of the parameters of the upcoming move. We will then be able to compare services required to your company policy.
If there is a discrepancy, we will be able to make suggestions and offer various options that address the situation. After the plan and any options are in place, it is reviewed with your employee. If the shipment is out of the scope of your policies, options available to the employee are agreed upon. We have detailed information on the destination country’s culture, customs and laws which also help keep the transferee informed. The same people that devised the plan become the personal move coordinator who will not only plan every detail of the move, but will also be the single point of contact throughout the journey. They will oversee the move from start to finish, ensuring everyone’s satisfaction along the way.
We have the right team for the job
Our skilled professionals will effectively pack, according to plan, the entire residence or just a few items and prepare the belongings for the rigorous journey overseas. We will only use the highest quality packing materials and supplies and we will carefully inventory every piece of the shipment. All parties involved will be able to contact us if necessary at anytime during the process. Everyone will also receive shipment details regarding the vessel or flight number, estimated delivery dates and service providers as part of our international moving services.
If all of the belongings are being not transported at once, we have many storage-in-transit options that can be utilized. The storage options are designed to be an integral facet of our international moving services if the move requirements limit the size of the shipment, if your employee is renting a furnished home while overseas, or if the employee is staying in a hotel before relocating permanently into a residence. We also have the option of flying a small amount of items to the destination for daily use while the household goods are making their way overseas, which gets the individual up and running almost immediately.
Hansen Bros. and Allied offers a customized level of service to suit the budget and needs of your company and your employees. From just arranging for local storage while flying a few items over to low cost “dock to dock” shipping to doing a complete pack and “door to door” delivery, our team can do it all.
