Household Goods Moving FAQ: Can I Ship My Household Goods Overseas?

Moving 5The nice thing about the household moving industry is that it’s a global industry. People move in and out of countries all the time, and even in the United States people are moving to and from both Alaska and Hawaii, as well as the outlying territories that the United States controls (such as Guam). This means that yes, you can ship your household goods overseas, but there are a few things that you should keep in mind when doing so. For starters, international household moving is a much different beast than interstate household moving, and this also includes shipments to Alaska and Hawaii. Most overseas shipments are literally done via a ship, which means that they travel through international waters that are governed and regulated according to a different set of rules. Most people that visit this site are simply shipping to Alaska or Hawaii, which makes it a lot easier for them to get the right information for what they’ll need and what they have to do prior to their move. If you’re moving overseas, make sure to get some free quotes from our stable of reliable household moving companies and get all the information you’ll need straight from the source.

All that being said, you should also be aware that overseas household goods transportation services are a lot more expensive than overseas auto shipping services, and by a wide margin to boot. As you likely know, household goods moving is priced via weight; the more stuff you have to move, generally the more expensive it’s going to be. Prices also take into account the distance you’re traveling, as well as the method needed to move your goods. For instance, in a simple overland, state-to-state move, the main factors in the price will be the distance between pickup and delivery and the total weight of your goods. Other factors such as additional insurance and full-service vs. self-service moving will of course be added in, but those aren’t the two main factors; those are more add-ons to your basic price. With overseas shipping, you still have the distance and the weight, but then there’s also the fact that you can only ship your stuff via a cargo ship, and those rates are vastly different than those that a standard overland transport company would charge.

You should also be prepared to wait longer for pickup and delivery of your goods, while also trying to give your shipper enough time to arrange everything. We recommend booking a household move at least a month in advance, but 6-8 weeks is recommended. Logistically, household goods transportation is much more taxing and hectic than auto transport, and the additional headaches garnered through household goods moving are generally less if there’s more time to prepare everything accordingly. With overseas transportation, transit time is increased because the shipment is multi-faceted: there has to be an overland transport company to actually get your vehicle to the port, then there has to be a contract with the port shipper to move your goods overseas, which brings with it the process of loading your household goods from the truck to the cargo ship, then unloading them at your destination and then getting everything moved to your home via yet another overland household moving company at the delivery location.

Like we said, it’s time-consuming. Is it perfect? Of course not. There are always factors at play that no one expects, inclement weather being a major factor in both overseas and overland household moving. The moving industry is also seasonal, with prices higher in the summer due to higher demand, but also more trucks available because it’s the busy season. Prices tend to fall in the winter months, but then again there are also less trucks on the road, meaning pickup windows may be longer. When you ship can have as large an impact on what you ship and where you ship your household goods.
