Pick the Best International Movers Among Many Companies

For efficient, fast, and stress-free moves overseas, finding a trustworthy company to assist you is crucial. Not all enterprises can provide you with quality assistance, that’s why you should figure out which one is the best among many.

When selecting the best international movers for your overseas relocation, consider several key factors that ensure a seamless transition. Prioritize movers who are well-versed in both full container load (FCL) and less than container load (LCL) options.

By focusing on these aspects, you can trust that the move will be handled with expertise, making your international transition as stress-free as possible.

Companies Should Have Experience With Global Relocation

Relocating to another country is not easy, so you should hire professionals who know how to handle moving by sea. I Love Moving crew has been helping people start their lives abroad for a while. We specialize in global relocations, and our services can be helpful every step of the way.

Pros of Hiring Professional International Movers

Having a reliable partner by your side during the relocation process can make everything easier. Hiring professionals comes with many benefits. For example, I Love Moving offers you clear and transparent quotes, so you don’t have to worry about your money.

Furthermore, when hiring us, all you have to do when professionals are around is kick back and relax. I Love Moving crew can do all the work for you. From boxing up furniture to transporting your car overseas.

Why Should You Choose I Love Moving to Help You Relocate

I Love International Moving is a company that has its fair share of clients, and that’s why we know how to make sea relocation smooth and as stress-free as possible.

Not only that but with our assistance, you will be covered every step of the move.

Our team can do all the grunt work while you are relaxing. Depending on your needs, we can offer you three types of shipping options – full or less container load and groupage/consolidation.

Full Container Load (FCL) is For Those Moving Their Whole Life

Full container load or FCL is a service where the customer gets a container for themselves. This container doesn’t have to be full for it to be shipped. Depending on the number of items you want to ship, you can use different size containers.

I Love Moving crew can load the container at your home address, but it is more commonly loaded at the warehouse. Using FCL service is a quicker version of ocean freight because the containers will go directly to the port as soon as they are loaded. If you are in a hurry to get your stuff to the desired location, contact I Love Moving and ask for a Full Container Load.

Less Container Load is Ideal For Smaller Moves

If you don’t have a lot of things or are not packing up your entire home, you can use a less container load option. LCL is perfect for people who are shipping a smaller amount of items. When you opt for this version, the I Love Moving team will put all of your belongings in a larger container with other loads and ship them when the container is filled. That’s why if you need your belongings quickly transported, consider using a full container load option.

Groupage/Consolidation is Very Budget Friendly

The I Love Moving team wants to help its clients optimize their transport costs. That’s why we are offering groupage shipping, which is basically the smallest type of shipment. This is a good way to send small cargo that is not big enough to fill a container. Your belongings will be added to other cargo with the same route, which will make the transport economically practical.

Furthermore, you don’t have to worry about your belongings. The cargo is palletized, and it will only share the container with other household goods shipments. I Love International Moving offers this type of shipment only from New York and Los Angeles, so if you want to use groupage from another US city, your cargo will be hauled there.

Take Advantage of All the Moving Services Our International Company Offers

When hiring the I Love Moving crew, you can take advantage of all our international moving services. From packing and custom crating to car shipping, our team will ensure that you are all set to start an adventure abroad.

All you should do is give us a call. Our team of professional agents will walk you through the whole process. They will provide you with a free quote and advise you on services you should use.

After that, all you should do is pick the date and book your move. The rest will be up to us. And we will make sure all of your belongings arrive at a new location across the world in no time.

International Movers Offer Packing Services

Transporting things from one country to another across the sea is not a short trip, and unexpected things can happen. To ensure that your things are safe and protected, I Love Moving offers you packing services. Your items will be in safe hands, all you have to do is give us a call, and our crew will box everything up in a hot minute. Our crew can pack everything from electronics, mirrors, and artwork to clothing and kitchen appliances. When everything is done, you will receive a copy of the packing list where every single item is documented.

Custom Crating Will Protect Your Valuables

Do you have some valuable items that you would like to additionally protect? For those kinds of precious belongings, I Love Moving offers custom crating. Each crate is custom-built using the best heat-treated stamped wood. Our team of highly trained carpenters will take the measures and build the perfect box. If you are not sure which objects should be put in custom crates, call us, our team of experts can help you decide what items need the most special care.

How Does Vehicle Shipping Work

I Love Moving doesn’t only take care of your household furniture. We can lend you a helping hand when it comes to vehicle transportation too. Depending on your needs, you can ship your vehicle alone, other household items, or in consolidation to many different ports.

How to Prepare for International Relocation

Relocating overseas is a huge undertaking, so it requires thorough preparation. Start by hiring professionals to handle your belongings from start to finish. With a company such as I Love Moving by your side, you will have enough free time to prepare all the necessary documents for your move.

Look into the restrictions and regulations of the new location. Some countries have strict rules about imported items. Knowing what you shouldn’t bring with you will save you the hassle of paying fees.

What Are the Items Movers Won’t Move?

When you are preparing for international relocation, you should know that there are limits to things movers will handle. To avoid trouble and confusion, here are some of the items international movers won’t move:

  • Hazardous materials like flammable liquids, toxic chemicals, and cleaning products
  • Weapons, offensive weapons, explosives, ammunition, and imitation firearms

Frequently Asked Moving Questions

I Love Moving has been in the business for a long time, and we know that moves can be confusing and complicated to understand, especially when you are traveling abroad. To help you get a better grasp of it, we answered some frequently asked questions clients had about moves:

Where are we based?

I Love Moving is a country-wide company that services all of the US through one of our direct branches or through an agent. Our headquarters are by the main ports in Los Angeles and New York.

Who does the pickup?

Our professional team will perform the pickup of your belongings.

Does ILM handle the entire move?

We are your primary agent, and we are responsible for getting your belongings from the pickup location to the delivery. We use an agent overseas to handle the customs clearance and destination services portion of the move. That being said, it is essential to clarify that we only work with high-quality freight forwarders.

What or who is exactly a freight forwarder?

A freight forwarder or a non-vessel operating common carrier or NVOCC, and it is an individual or a firm that receives and ships goods on behalf of other companies.

Which ports does ILM use?

Our firm uses many ports throughout the US. Our group shipments go out of New York and Los Angeles. We also use Oakland and Seattle ports, but that depends on freight availability.

Can I track the shipment?

Whenever you need an update, you can reach I Love Moving agents. We will provide you with details as soon as they become available. As for the ocean portion of the transport, you will be able to track it online.

Are there any hidden fees?

I Love Moving nurtures trustworthy relationships with its clients, that’s why you will get a transparent quote. You can rest assured that you won’t be charged with hidden fees. However, depending on the country you are traveling to, there will be some exclusions:

  • Shuttle usage – if big trucks can’t access delivery locations, smaller vehicles are used.
  • Parking permits are not included if they are required during the delivery.
  • Quarantine/MAF costs are only applied if you are traveling to Australia and New Zealand. All the shipments there are inspected for biosecurity, and there is a fee for that inspection. Furthermore, you may be charged if restricted items require destruction or fumigation.
  • Special assistance such as hoisting and outside elevators will be charged extra. These are used when large pieces of furniture won’t fit in the new building, and a crane or outside elevator is needed. This is mostly applied for pianos and statues.
  • Inspections, examinations, and X-Ray charges mean that if customs pulls your container for a random inspection you will be charged with the fee.

How much will it cost if your belongings get inspected?

It is hard to say because those fees can be unpredictable. For small groupage shipments, the worst-case scenario can cost you around $500. Then again, this is highly unlikely to happen. You can rest assured that your relocation will almost certainly go smoothly and without additional costs.

How Much Does It Typically Cost to Hire Movers

This is a question that has no exact answer. However, when you figure out your volume, you should get a quote from an international moving company. As with any type of relocation, companies form costs based on multiple factors. These can include volume, starting, and final destination, as well as the type of service. To make the whole process easier for you, I Love Moving has a free estimate form on its website, but if you want more precise information, call us and ask for a quote.

Why Is the UK One of the Most Popular Destinations for Expats From the USA

Around 200,000 Americans are living all across the United Kingdom, making this European country a hot spot for US citizens.

If you are considering relocating to the United Kingdom, call I Love Moving to lend you a helping hand. We will ensure that your move is an anxiety-ridden experience and executes swiftly and efficiently.



I decided to rent my apartment, and I wanted to move to Europe for summer. I do not regret using ILM. Transportation of things has been performed quickly and professionally. All the items were transported in complete safety. I believe that it is better to pay and know that you can expect quality moving service, then try to pack and ship everything on your own. Thank you very much for your professional work. Dear future customers, do not assume that you know how to pack your own possessions better than these movers! Just trust them, and you will be pleasantly surprised. They are simply masters of their craft!! Save your time and nerves.

I did not personally participate in this moving process, as I was short on time, and decided to leave everything to professionals. The guys packed up all the things very carefully and quickly. They were very polite with me and answered all my questions. Thank you for the quality, timely and proper fulfillment of commitments. Every person involved in my move proved themselves as a reliable and professional individual who can quickly solve problems.

Dominic L.

I want to express gratitude to the employees of this company. We were pleased also to see neatly packaged and labeled property transferred to the long-term storage, to be moved to our new destination at a later date. The movers did not slow down themselves, did not say any extra words, but simply were doing their job. And they performed the job very professionally and carefully. Now, with your help, we are already in the new office across the ocean!
