Hello, and thank you for visiting!

When shipping antiques overseas, you will require the services of international shippers to transport your goods to your new country.

Ask about customs regulations

Check the shipping regulations in the US before shipping your antiques. Many countries require specific documents or payment of duties to import antiques through customs. Contact the US embassy in your country for more information. You should also request customs brokering services from your international moving company to assist you with the customs process. 

Packing antiques for international shipping

Hiring reputable international movers with experience properly handling, packing, and crating antiques will ensure they arrive without damage. Packing antiques requires the correct materials and methods, so be sure to ask any potential company about their experience shipping and packing antiques before enlisting their services.
