Deliver comprehensive customs clearance support

For the duration of your relocation process, your Global Relocation Specialist will ensure that your shipment meets all the laws to pass customs. In the possible occurrence that a visual inspection is required, your GRS will remain in dialogue with you, so you will anticipate each step. We can reduce the number of our containers that are held for a visual check at customs by ensuring that every phase of the relocation process and every one of the paperwork meet their regulations.

 

Begins at your inventory – what you can bring and items not allowed

Seamless and quick international moves start with a thorough in-home or virtual home survey. At this time, our international moving consultants will see all the things in your home that you are taking. They will create an inventory of all segments of your move – air shipment, sea shipment, and storage. This will be the beginning point to have conversations with your Global Relocation Specialist about what things you intend to have in each shipment type. In addition, you will be provided with the unique requirements for the country you are relocating to. Every country has specific and unique requirements related to what items you’re or are not authorized to bring into the country. Being informed of this info initially means you will be ready ahead of move day.

On move day, the movers will fill out all the correct inventory documents and safely prepare everything

The following stage of ensuring your paperwork is exact and fully executed occurs on pack day and moving day. Your team will be professionally trained for the specific document requirements for international transfers. They will ensure that the inventory is complete. One big part of this is that our movers are required to pack or visually confirm each box in the move. This gives us the ability to double check that no item is being moved that is not permitted into your destination. Additionally, it gives us the time to correctly itemize everything on your inventory – an essential aspect of executing customs requirements.

Global Relocation Specialist will make sure everything is ready to go to limit delays

Your Global Relocation Specialist will ensure all the documentation is accurate and finalized. From there, they will communicate with you about the scheduling of both your air and sea shipments. Customs delays will be less frequent because Corrigan Moving is committed to making sure everything is ready to go.
