Ocean Freight

We recommend ocean freight as the most affordable option when it comes to moving overseas. As one of the best international moving companies, we can customize your move specific to your needs. As an example, if you’re only shipping a few boxes, we can use an LCL (Less Container Load) service which is a shared container. If you’re planning on moving an entire household, then it’s recommended that you get a full container.
You can also choose shipping options such as door to door, door to port or port to port service. It all depends on your budget and know how. It’s suggested that you speak with a relocation agent to help you coordinate your international move. IVL is also fully licensed by the FMC.

Air Freight (Household Goods) – International Moving Company

As an international moving company, we offer all options which include air freight. However, air freight is more expensive but timely. It’s a good option if you’re in a rush or if you’re only shipping a few boxes. Air freight is similar to ocean freight in the sense that we can offer door to door or port to port service. Once your goods are picked up, we will place everything on pallets and shrink wrap to make sure your household goods are secure. Air freight makes up for about 15% of the international moved we handle. If you’re looking for a quality international moving company, please feel free to contact us anytime.

International Auto Transport

Auto Transport

If you’re planning on shipping a vehicle with your household goods or by itself, we can help. If you’re shipping personal effects with a car, we will ship them together in a container. You would have a closed container, and the vehicle will be blocked and braced. If you’re planning on shipping just a vehicle, we offer a Ro/Ro (roll on, roll off) service which means you would bring your car to the port where it’s loaded on a ship. Your vehicle is exposed to the elements so this is not a good option for high-end cars.
