Moving Overseas Shipping Costs


At SDC International Shipping, we understand that numerous factors contribute to the cost of an international move. We strive to provide you with professional services that not only meet your relocation needs but also build trust and confidence in our company.

  • Destination and origin. The location of your move plays a significant role in determining the cost. Certain destinations may require special logistics or additional movers, resulting in higher expenses. However, if your move involves locations closer to major ports well served by shipping lines competing for business, we can offer you a more cost-effective solution.
  • Shipping by sea or air. We offer both sea and air transportation options to suit your specific requirements. Air shipping is ideal for clients with smaller loads or time-sensitive shipments. With door-to-door service and swift delivery, it is often preferred by our commercial clients. However, due to its higher cost, it may not be practical for complete household moves. Ocean freight, on the other hand, provides the most affordable shipping mode for comprehensive relocations.
  • The shipping method. At SDC International Shipping, we understand the importance of maintaining first-class service while reducing costs for our clients. That’s why we offer “containerized groupage consolidation,” a unique shipping method that allows us to combine multiple shipments into a single container. This approach significantly reduces overall shipping costs without compromising the quality and security of your belongings.
  • Add-on services. In addition to our shipping services, we provide various add-on services to cater to your specific needs. These may include professional packing, unpacking, storage solutions, custom crating, and more. Our comprehensive range of add-on services ensures that every aspect of your international move is handled with utmost care and efficiency.

Rest assured, our relocation specialists will carefully assess your requirements and provide you with a tailored estimate that includes rates for any additional services, estimated port fees, and destination terminal handling charges (DTHC) – a standard in international shipping.

At SDC International Shipping, we are dedicated to facilitating any shipping need you may have. Simply give us a call, provide us with the details of your move, and our team will create a comprehensive estimate based on your specific requirements. Trust us to handle your international move with professionalism, reliability, and attention to detail.

International moving household goods

International moving household goods

If you’re sending household goods and personal effects, our door-to-door service is tailored to meet your needs seamlessly. We’re a door-to-door international moving company located in Los Angeles, California, specializing in hassle-free shipping from the USA to various international destinations.

In addition to door-to-door household relocations, we also provide specialized services. With our port-to-door service, we handle commercial shipments received at ports or warehouses. Clients deliver their items to the port, and our logistics coordinators manage customs clearance and transportation to the final destination.

Alternatively, we offer door-to-port service for clients who prefer picking up belongings from the port. Please note that some countries require inspection and localization of household items and vehicles near the entry point. If you’re unfamiliar with the import procedures, we recommend our comprehensive door-to-door service.

At SDC International Shipping, our priority is to provide reliable and efficient services. Whether you require door-to-door, port-to-door, or door-to-port service, we have the expertise to handle your international move professionally. Trust us to navigate the complexities of international shipping, ensuring the safe and timely delivery of your belongings.

Contact us to discuss your specific requirements and discover why our door-to-door service is the preferred choice for individuals and businesses alike.

International Storage

International Storage

If you moving overseas but don’t have a definite or permanent destination, it’s not a problem. We understand that many people relocate to another country before finding a long-term place to live. Fortunately, this timing issue can be accommodated.

When moving with us, there is generally a timeframe from the loading of your belongings in the United States to their delivery at your final destination. This period, usually several weeks, allows you enough time to secure a residence in your new country.

As specialists in international moving and storage, SDC International Shipping offers storage solutions both in the United States and worldwide. We have storage warehouses strategically located to cater to your needs. The choice of storage location will be coordinated with your dedicated relocation specialist.

Our shipping and storage services are particularly ideal for individuals going overseas temporarily, such as academics and businesspeople. We can store a portion of their belongings in our local warehouse and send what they need to their overseas location, ensuring a seamless transition.

Trust SDC International Shipping to provide comprehensive solutions for your international move. Whether you require storage, transportation, or both, we have the expertise and options to meet your unique requirements.

Contact us and let our team of professionals assist you in planning your move and storage needs with precision and efficiency.

International Packers Experts

International Packers Experts

Moving overseas is much different from relocating within the US. For example, when moving from California to the UK, you must navigate a range of laws and regulations, including immigration, shipping materials, and taxation.

Certain requirements may be straightforward, but others demand close attention; otherwise, your shipment could be delayed for weeks, incurring fees at the destination port. Hiring international packers and movers allows you more time to focus on essential matters like visas and making necessary preparations.

SDC International Shipping is a global moving company with an experienced team of professional packers. Our packers exclusively use approved packaging materials for international shipments, including wood, cloth, and cartons. We also assist in creating an accurate packing list and inventory, essential for any destination country.

Rely on our international packers experts to handle the complexities of packing and safeguard your belongings throughout the relocation process. With SDC International Shipping, you can trust us to make your international move smoother and more efficient.

Contact us today to discuss your packing requirements with our knowledgeable team and experience a worry-free and seamless international relocation.

Affordable International Moving

SDC International Shipping frequently utilizes air shipping for client shipments, especially when the cargo is small or time-sensitive. This option is particularly advantageous for our commercial clients, as air shipping offers speed and efficiency, ensuring door-to-door delivery within days. However, it is important to acknowledge that air shipping comes with a significant drawback – its high cost. Therefore, it may not be the most practical choice for complete household moves.

Understanding the importance of delivering top-notch service while keeping costs in check, SDC International Shipping has implemented a cost-saving method called groupage consolidation for shipping. When individuals need to send a relatively small volume, their shipments are directed to consolidators who combine multiple loads heading to the same port. This streamlined approach has proven highly effective in our operations.

As our client base has grown, we have taken steps to optimize this process further. SDC International Shipping now handles the consolidation process ourselves, utilizing our own groupage containers. By fully maximizing the space within our containers, we can capitalize on the leftover room, reducing costs and avoiding additional fees associated with external consolidators. This enables us to offer a more cost-effective and efficient shipping experience to our clients.

Another advantage of this system is the flexibility it provides in accommodating various shipment sizes. For example, if you are moving to a four-bedroom home, your items may not fit into a 20′ container, but a 40′ container can have excessive unused space (not recommended), leading to unnecessary costs. With our groupage consolidations, we can reduce overall shipment costs by optimizing container space, regardless of the volume of your move.

Choose SDC International Shipping for affordable and efficient international moving services. Contact us today to discuss your specific moving needs and discover how our expertise can save you both time and money in the relocation process.

These guys are the most professional, friendly and efficient lovers I’ve ever used. I like the team so much I requested them a second time within a few weeks when I needed to move into my permanent residence. Highly recommend. First class!

They were able to move our items without any lacking items and nothing has been damaged to our furniture. They really take good care of it, despite some delays on the way to our new place. All in all, it was a great, stress-free move we had with them. We highly recommend SDC to everyone
