Ocean Freight Transport

Ocean freight is the most common method for moving abroad. A worldwide mover should be able to offer you international moving quotes that vary based on your budget.

However, it’s important that you understand each service in its entirety. If you’re on a budget and prefer to pick up at the port of destination, it’s important that you know what to expect.

A port pickup will require the consignee to handle documentation and arranging delivery.

Although you may save money on the front end, you may want to calculate all costs involved.

Service Options:

  • Door to Door
  • Door to port
  • Port to Port
  • Port to Door
