The key to every successful international move is planning ahead. As a full service company, Dolphin Express will provide you with a quote over the phone and / or schedule an on-site survey for you. This will help you budget for your move and make decisions about which items to ship. We can provide you with all the boxes and packing supplies you will need ahead of time, or simply bring everything on the day of the move and have our professional crew pack the items for you.
It is vital to schedule the day of your move and give a deposit ahead of time to ensure that you get the date that you want. At Dolphin Express we work to accommodate your needs and we guarantee the pick up date!
Familiarizing yourselves with the customs regulations of the country you’re moving to will help make sure things go smoothly on the other end. We will provide you all of the necessary customs forms and guidance. Once the shipment reaches the destination, Dolphin’s in-house customs broker will clear your shipment and our office overseas will coordinate the delivery of your belongings.
As a standard service we will pack your fragile items for your international move using special export packing materials. Our professional movers will also wrap your furniture with special moving pads, making sure they are protected for international shipping. Should you prefer, you can also select full packing service, in which case we will also pack everything from the closets, cupboards, shelves, and so on.
The packing supplies can be delivered to you in advance, which will give you time ahead of the move to sort through your belongings (reminisce along the way) and pack items in such a way that it’ll be easy for you to find everything at the time of unpacking. Our movers will do all of the heavy lifting for you, loading the boxes to the moving truck or shipping container, and will also unload the items at the destination and distribute them between the different rooms.
A vital aspect of every move is securing your move date in advance. This will ensure you get the date you want. The middle of the month is usually a better time to move, since there is typically more availability. Scheduling the move in advance will also give you the chance to give a deposit and fill out all of the necessary forms ahead of time. Dolphin Express will help you prepare by assisting you to fill out the forms, give advice for how to prepare for the day of the pick up, and even take care of the certificate of insurance for your building in case one will be required.
