Creating the move right for you.
We know that no two moves are exactly alike. We’ll work closely with you to create a solution to ensure that you are moved with the minimum of disruption, on time and within your relocation allowance or personal budget.
Some of our moving options include:
Most items moved internationally are sent by surface aboard ships, which is typically the most economical way of forwarding goods. Based on factors including how direct the shipping route is and the length of time the journey takes, there are different service options in this category.
Full Container Load (FCL) – Sole use container
This category ensures that the container carries only your goods. Under normal circumstances, your items can be loaded directly into the container, and the container sealed, at your residence. This leaves the container ready for delivery direct to the departure wharf without the need for any further handling in your origin country. It generally provides the fastest transit times, because there tend to be no delays in waiting for other freight to fill up the container.
Less than Container Load (LCL) Consignments
This method is used when there is insufficient cargo to justify the use of an entire container. LCL consignments consolidate freight from different shippers, to a common destination, into container loads. When shipping via LCL, the goods are required to be crated to ensure their protection during transit.
Groupage Service – Shared use container
Groupage Service consolidates several individual shipments into containers going to common destinations. This allows us to pass the freight savings on to you. Because only household and personal effects are loaded into our Groupage, goods don’t need to be crated prior to shipment, eliminating an additional cost. While this is an economical alternative to LCL, transit times may be longer. Air Shipments
Allied International also offers air shipments. Many people ship some of their essential personal belongings via airfreight because of the fast arrival time. In general, air freight is more expensive than surface freight; however, there are situations where it may prove to be more economical.
