Check The Small Print

Checking the small print is always important when it comes to companies taking charge of the things that you own. When they are moving your things from country to country, and through customs, it is even more important. What is their insurance policy? What happens if your things are held by customs? What happens if they are delayed? Check the small print and check that you trust the company to keep you informed every step of the way. 

What Exactly is A To B?

Some movers will move you door to door, others will move you port to port or airport to airport and then help you arrange pickups either end with partner companies. Check what A to B is and check the company you want to work with are fully experienced in working in those areas. You don’t want to get caught out with a company who suddenly says they can’t get your things the last third of the way because the way they move isn’t compatible with the route.
