Document Preparation

A move requires careful planning and preparation but can be more complex when you are relocating across international borders. The process begins with a thorough assessment of your home via an in-person survey or virtual walk-through using an electronic device. Particularly for international moves, contents of the home must be accounted for size, weight, shape and more so that the proper transport methods like air, water or road are determined well in advance.

Charlotte International Moving FAQ

Does Suddath have significant international moving experience?

Yes, Suddath international movers are highly experienced with over 10,000 internationals moves per year, and have a dedicated International Residential Moving team, focused primarily on delivering excellence in the global relocation space. We are a premier Charlotte international mover, and with over 100 years of top-quality moving experience, long-standing partnerships in the industry and a well-respected global presence, we can tackle any move scenario, both domestically and internationally.

How do I insure my valuables during an overseas move?

Through your contract with Suddath, you can receive federally-mandated protection which is called valuation coverage. This means that depending on the level of coverage you select, there will specific payment for items that are deemed damaged by the mover. This is not traditional insurance coverage; by law, movers do not offer that, so it is important to discuss options with your move coordinator if you would like to shop for a plan. Before signing a moving contract, understand exactly what your overseas moving company offers and have them take you through the types of valuation coverage. There are options from third-party insurance providers specifically geared towards international move protection that you may want to consider.

When should I start preparing for an international move to or from Charlotte?

Getting started as early as possible is always key. There are many steps to a smooth international relocation. Gathering documents, researching international moving companies, preparing for any regulatory issues are more involved when moving abroad. With the assistance of an experienced Charlotte-based overseas moving company like Suddath, help will be available every step of the way. A great resource is our moving overseas checklist, which prompts you to take action at various time intervals, even three to four months ahead of time.
