Moving from one country to another can be a complicated process. There are a lot of little details to keep track of and you have enough on your mind without worrying about your choice of long distance movers. At Andy’s Transfer & Storage we’re committed to making sure your belongings make it to your new home in one piece.
Every move has different requirements, which is why we work hard to personalize our approach for each job, providing our clients with a smooth moving experience. Whatever your unique needs may be, we’ll pay attention to your priorities (keeping your grandma’s antique rocking chair in mint condition, for example) and create a moving strategy accordingly.
An international move takes planning. From securing the right Visa and a plan for employment to finding somewhere to live, being prepared is the best way to make sure everything goes smoothly. That extends to your plans for moving your belongings—which just so happens to be our specialty.
The International Moving Process
Moving to another country could be a dream come true. But before you can settle into your new home, it’s important to make sure you know what to expect. Andy’s Transfer & Storage is here to help you through the process for moving internationally.
Within 24 hours of your call, you will be assigned a move coordinator who is in charge of managing every aspect of your relocation—and also keep you informed every step of the way. Working with North American International, your move coordinator will be there to help you with:
First things first: to ensure a successful international relocation, our experts will work with you to develop a roadmap towards your new home. We can recommend and execute specialized packing strategies for all your belongings, including your pets. After we become familiar with your needs and expectations, we’ll provide you with a complete quote that includes:
Just like you, your belongings are about to embark on an international journey. That means it’s important to make sure everything is packed securely. Your driver and crew have the experience to do just that. The packing process will involve:
- Packing breakables into double or triple walled cartons
- Wrapping and cushioning furniture to prevent damage
- Clear labeling
- Organized and efficient truck packing to maximize time and keep your possessions safe throughout the journey
Moving across borders is a different process than moving across town. We have experience with the customs requirements of a number of different countries, so we can help guide you through the process making sure you know exactly what to expect, including:
- Security concerns crossing the border
- Restricted items
- Paperwork procedures
- Receiving your shipment and possible roadblocks that could come up along the way
With our online shipment tracking service, you can track your belongings any time, 24 hours a day. Once you receive your password, head to www.naintl.com, and click “Track Your Shipment” under the “International Move” tab.
Once your shipment arrives, we’ll be there to help unpack. We’ll do a thorough inspection and inventory of all your items to make sure it has all arrived safe and sound, as well as clean up all packing materials and debris. If you aren’t fluent in the local language, we’ll send an English-speaking crew leader who is specially trained to assist on international moves to help you get settled.
Your move coordinator in the destination country is happy to give you some tips on navigating your new home. Feel free to ask them about the culture, climate, schools, government and much more.
Although we take every precaution to make sure your belongings arrive at your new home safely, there’s always the possibility that you’ll need to make a claim. North American International’s in-house claim service makes the process as simple and hassle-free as possible. Simply fill out our Online Claim Form and we’ll take it from there.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
By far the best moving company I have ever used and I have moved over 15 times. Long distance or local these guys are professional respectful and they are very good with high end furniture which I have a lot of.
Andy's moved our office and the movers were fast and efficient. The cost of the move was less than I had expected. I would highly recommend them for moving your home or office.
I have used Andy's Transfer to move my personal belongings 3 times and I had them move my business 2 times. Their quotes were always accurate, personal have always been professional, work was always done on time and fast. As a professional real estate agent for Dilbeck in the Foothill area I recommend them to a my clients.
Andy's has helped me move 3 times. It's a great family owned business (and a great family) who get the job done quickly and efficiently. They even hired my son at a later date! And he had nothing but good things to say about all the guys he worked with.
I had a great experience with our move. The driver & his crew were professional, fast, efficient, and easy to work with. Also, Andy's kept us informed of all costs and did not try to hide fees. I would definitely use them again and have recently referred them to a friend. I would not think twice about using them!!! They are great!
