Inventory Preparation for Customs Regulations 

One of the most important steps of moving internationally is knowing and complying with the customs regulations of the country you’re moving to. Our experience with international moving ensures that key details aren’t overlooked, so you don’t incur major inconveniences, delays and added costs. The following points will help you understand what’s required from a customs standpoint to prevent delays and ensure a smooth international moving experience.

Thorough inventory completed

Because many countries have restrictions on the types of items you bring into their country – including currency and electronics – and differ on what they may or may not permit, it's vital to have a thorough packing inventory completed of what you're planning to bring during your international relocation. Suddath® provides a packing inventory that lists the contents of your shipment. We supply a line-by-line inventory noting all items in your shipment at destination for customs clearance purposes.

C-TPAT certified international moving services 

One of the most important certifications an international mover should have is the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) certification. C-TPAT is a voluntary program that is provided by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security with the goal to enhance cargo security and international supply chains while improving the security of U.S. borders.

A key benefit of using a C-TPAT-certified international mover like Suddath is that we demonstrate our commitment to securely moving your goods based on the high standards of U.S. Custom and Border Protection. Moreover, this certification promotes accuracy – we know what’s in each container and proactively address any security issues.

Transparency and full disclosure 

We are transparent about what’s included and excluded in our services. We always have complete oversight to every aspect of the move and have Service Level Agreements (SLAs) with proven, trusted and insured partners.

Knowing what’s required when it comes to customs regulations plays a major role in having a seamless international moving process. Suddath offers personalized international moving services that help you understand your specific customs requirements and handle every aspect of your move to a new country.
