We start every day with a concerted effort to make the unmatching moving experience.
SDC International Shipping operates as Sacramento overseas movers. Initially, we had commenced our business as a regional sub-contractor for international relocation companies. As time passed, we have developed into a full-fledged international freight forwarder with the Federal Maritime Commission license to run shipping of household and commercial goods.
Our warehouses are located in the vicinity of Oakland, and we regularly dispatch moving trucks to the Central Valley. So don’t hesitate to call us if you need to move elsewhere from California.

Things We Won’t Move
All shipping containers go through inspection at Customs in the USA and the destination country. This is done to make sure that shippers don’t move prohibited items. To be safe, we have made a list of things that we won’t ship:
- Aerosols and any containers under pressure
- Flammable materials and toxic substances
- Weapons, explosives, and ammunition, including imitation firearms
- Plant and animals products
- Fur, skins, or products made from it
- Cleaning agents
- Prescription drugs
- Any food
What Items We Can Move
We can ship general household items, such as furniture, clothing, jewelry, photography equipment, pianos, artwork, libraries, appliances, electronics, vehicles, and much more. Although import policies and regulations differ by country, the standard requirement is that you must have used them for at least one year while abroad, and you don’t intend to use them for commercial purposes. If your households meet these requirements, you won’t need to pay duties and taxes
How We Prepare Your Shipping
Moving things overseas, whether by air or sea, always involves a risk of damage. To protect your stuff, our company offers packing services. Our crew performs a custom-built packing solution for each object you are planning to put in your container.
For high-value objects, we employ crates and a host of other techniques. Our carpenters can design an ideal box to ensure the safe transportation of precious belongings.
Also, if you need to move your piano or get your artwork shipped overseas, we are here to help you out.
International Relocation by Air
Airfreight isn’t the most common way of shipping household goods due to its price, but it is the most convenient freight mode. You won’t need to wait weeks before you get your things. Therefore, if you can afford the air freight cost, this is the best bet.
International Relocation by Ocean
However, if the shipping speed isn’t a decisive factor in your move, you can opt for ocean freight. It’s the preferred transportation mode for most of our clients because of its affordability. If you plan your move ahead, then four weeks will just fly by like one day
Overseas Vehicle Shipping
Your car has been such a great companion, and you don’t want to sell it or leave it behind even if you are moving for a year. We can relate to that very well!
As Sacramento International Movers, we’ll do our best to get your car to your new home as long as it qualifies for import. You can get in touch with one of our car shipping agents to find a personalized solution.

Do you need protection for belongings you are shipping? Yes, you clearly need it. We highly recommend international moving insurance if you are sending your stuff via ocean freight. It is such a long journey that we consider unexpected situations when your boxes get wet or damaged. There is no need to get emotional over that because you can take advantage of the different insurance options. You will be able to invest either in basic or full replacement coverage.
Suppose you have moved to a new country but haven’t yet found a new home. Then what to do with your arrived belongings? Again, you don’t need to worry about that because we can store your cargo for as long as you need. Talk to our customer service to find out about storage conditions and cost.

Trust Makes Big Difference in Our Business
“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.”
