What is a Door-to-Door Service?

Can you pack your things yourself? Surely, you can pack all your moving boxes, and it will even reduce moving costs. On the flip side, you should know that DIY packing will affect international moving insurance options.

Custom Crating for International Shipping
When do you need a crating service? We utilize custom-built crates for valuable and fragile objects. For example, if you need to move a piano overseas or ship artwork like sculptures, paintings, or fine china, the optimal protection will be crates specifically designed for these items.
Apart from creating custom crates, our international movers will professionally pack your bulky and vulnerable items further to ensure their safe delivery in your new country.
Container Shipping Via Ocean Freight
At SDC International Shipping, we arrange overseas shipping by sea. Household goods and cars are shipped in containers. For consignments up to 25,000 kg, a 20-foot container is the best option. A 40-foot container is used for large houses.
Depending on the size of your shipment, you can opt for groupage shipping or an individual container. Sometimes, it’s possible to include your auto in a solo container with personal belongings.
How Long Does It Take to Ship Household Goods?
The transit time by sea on door-to-door services may vary. Several factors will affect the time it takes for your consignment to get to where it needs to be. What is your final destination? If we move you from Columbus, OH, to Europe or Asia, it will be faster than, say, to Australia.
Ocean freight can typically take 4 to 8 weeks, depending on your destination. Also, it might help to keep in mind unforeseen factors like weather and port congestion that can affect the transit time.
Once you start working with us, we’ll discuss your shipment’s time frames in more detail.
