List of International Relocation Companies

1. Allied Pickfords

Allied Pickfords is a relocation and moving services company with an established network of moving service providers. The company’s services extend to over 600 locations in more than 40 countries. Allied services include international and domestic moving, and other value-added services like pet and vehicle relocation.

What the Customers Say:

Russell Looker, Australian: We’d certainly recommend Allied Pickfords as a professional relocation company to our friends.

We recently had a need to relocate our personal effects from Thailand to Malaysia. The task seemed a bit daunting with concerns our collection of fragile ceramics and the formalities involved with any international transactions. We asked for a couple of quotes and finally settled on Allied Pickfords as their price and service was very competitive.

We received an amazing service – rapid responses to email and phone queries, supporting documents were all provided for us and the service personnel that assisted us with our move (at both ends) were courteous, helpful and efficient.

 

2. Santa Fe Relocation

Santa Fe Relocation is a British-based company that offers fully customisable domestic and international moving services. The company aims to provide a seamless international relocation experience for all its customers. You can choose from a wide range of value-added services, such as school search, temporary accommodation and even language and cultural training.

What the Customers Say:

Uzma Gul Ansari, Dutch: Overall, we are satisfied by their performance. We would definitely use their service again, if needed in future.
We used Santa Fe Relocation for our move from Netherlands to Singapore. The first meeting for the quote estimate left a very good impression. Everything was explained very clearly to me. The quoted price was reasonable. I was very much impressed by their staff who came to pack our stuff. The 3 member team of packers did a great job. They were friendly, efficient and competent. Their approach was quite eco-friendly. They used just the right amount of paper and used the existing boxes which were in good condition. They used the container space optimally. We had thought to leave one cupboard if it did not fit in the 20 ft. container. But they did their best and amazingly packed it as well. It was the best team of packers i have seen so far.
The shipment arrived in time in Singapore and the supervisor here also kept us informed about everything. All our household stuff arrived fine, without any damage. There was some damage to the house wooden stairs while moving the stuff. The repair work was arranged by Santa Fe and the repair man did a great job.
The Santa Fe contract stated that unpacking will involve unpacking things and putting them on a clean surface. I think this clause needs some improvement. The unpacking staff assembled furniture and opened lot of stuff. Still, they left many boxes unpacked. Not everything can be put on floor and counters. It would have been better if they also put the things in cupboards, like crockery, books. etc.

 

3. Helutrans Relocation

What the Customers Say:

Nicole Michaels, Australian: Impeccable service from this company on our arrival in Singapore.
They were early with our delivery, worked solidly through the day to get everything unpacked and constructed within one day, cleaned up and assisted with moving happily and promptly. Absolutely faultless. Would highly recommend their service.

 

4. Crown Relocation

Crown takes care of your end-to-end relocation journey, by providing move managers, as well as a comprehensive relocation checklist, to guide you through your move, every step of the way.

What the Customers Say:

S. Burke, Swiss: Everything was really well packed and went like clockwork.
Used them from Scotland to Vaud last year. Packing was superb at our end with one gaffer and 4 lads clearing the house.  2 guys unpacked this end and they were also superb, but didn’t work for Crown. A couple of damaged items that were not worth us bothering about and I think this might have been caused with the swapover to the 2nd company, but all in all, was pleased with the service given.’

Our first point of contact was Jonathan and we found him very responsive and professional. The moving crew was punctual, careful with our vintage furniture, and incredibly polite. It was clear that they worked well together, communicated clearly and were thus efficient on the day of the move. We were very thankful for how smooth the entire process was from start to finish.

 

7. Asian Tigers Group

What the Customers Say:

Benson B., Swedish: I have used Asian Tigers for years and years, and they have done many international moves for me.
They always show up on time, they are efficient, and they are totally trustworthy. They also helped monitor my shipment from door to door. Most importantly, everything made it in good shape, including my most important photos and “personal memory items.” You cannot put a value on those things, as you cannot replace them. I even used Asian Tigers to store those items for me, for many years, and all of those things arrived at my door safely and in good shape. I highly recommend them!

What the Customers Say:

Rob Y, Singaporean: We just moved from Singapore to Melbourne, Australia and we highly recommend Moovaz for any relocation services!
Selecting an international relocation company that would relocate the belongings of 5 family members not only safely but timely and without breaking the bank was mammoth and challenging task by itself. We spoke to countless relocations companies, big and small with varying pricing but the same services. At the end even though Moovaz was relatively new in the business compared to many so call big and established companies, we decided to go with Moovaz because we found them honest in their dealing and competitive price wise, looking back, we have no regrets. From the moment we first met Kelvin to review how much we were taking with us to Melbourne, to the negotiation on volume, cost and services to the actual day of packing and moving and our container arriving in Melbourne on the exact day as planned and at 6.45 am in the morning some more, it has been a smooth process with constant updates.

 

Conclusion

In conclusion, moving should never be taken lightly. After all, it is a sentimental process. Thus, it is important that you choose a reliable international relocation company to securely transport your items across the globe.
