International Relocation by Air

With air freight, you won’t have to wait for weeks to receive your belongings. If you have the budget for air freight, it is undoubtedly the best option for swift and efficient shipping.

If you plan your move in advance, the approximately four-week transit time will pass by quickly, making it a reliable and cost-effective option for international relocation.

Trust: The Key that Sets Us Apart in International Shipping

“I think the SDC guys did a phenomenal job. It wasn’t storming on the loading and pickup day, but the wind was still very annoying to drive you nuts. Despite that, they took great care with all of our furniture and crates. The delivery was also superb. They were quick and very polite! I highly recommend SDC International Shipping.”

“Without exaggeration, dealing with SDC International Shipping was a very pleasant experience. In October, we moved from Fair Oaks to the UK. The crew picked up our stuff on time and carefully handled our boxes. The delivery dates they gave us did materialize. I am satisfied with the quality and outcome of their service.”
