Moving & Storage can help you make the transition as seamless as possible. From our no-obligation survey, until the last item is unpacked safely at the destination, we are with you and your employee every step of the way.

    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.

    Contingency plans

    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.
