Many American expats move to Saudi Arabia for work because it boasts the largest economy in the Middle East. Besides, in the KSA, you can forget about income tax. On many fronts, it offers successful career and job opportunities for foreign workers who are willing to contribute to the kingdom’s economic growth.
SDC International Movers to Saudi Arabia has helped many Americans and returning citizens move their personal belongings to Jeddah, Ad Dammam, and Riyadh, the country’s hubs. We can ship your household items and car to any destination. Should you need additional services like packing, door-to-door delivery, and others, we are ready to offer you a full-range service.
Move Your House
We’ll come to estimate the volume of your goods and offer you either a full container load or a shared container. The price of your shipment will be determined based on many factors. You can fill out our online quote to know the approximate shipping cost, but our logistic specialists will create a more custom quote based on a more detailed survey of your goods.
Move Your Small Home in LCL
What is LCL? This shortening stands for less than Container Load. It’s also known as consolidated shipment. In other words, your cargo will be loaded with other multiple shipments in one container, which is an affordable solution as you pay only for the space your items occupy.
At SDC International Shipping, we work with the best partners to ensure fast delivery and safety.
Move Your Large House in FCL
Unlike LCL, a Full Container Load (FCL) is designed to transport large houses with several bedrooms. The advantage of FCL is that you don’t share the space with other customers’ boxes. Plus, you can also ship your vehicle or car in a solo container along with your personal effects and belongings. It’s also an economical and reliable transport mode.
Move Your Car
SDC International Movers to Saudi Arabia move thousands of cars each year. So when you choose us, it means you receive comprehensive service. We’ll send a shipping crew to your home to pick up your car and transport it to our warehouse to prepare it for export in the USA and import in Saudi Arabia. Please note that you should own your vehicle for at least six months and no more than five years so it can qualify for import in the KSA.
5-7 Weeks To Ship By Ocean to Saudi Arabia
Ocean freight is the most affordable and popular way to move household items and cars and the longest one. Depending on the port of origin, it may take 5 to 8 weeks. Here are some examples in the table below:
|Port of Origin – Location in the KSA||Less than a Container Load (LCL)||Full Container Load (FCL)|
|Atlanta to Ad Dammam||35 days||41 days|
|Chicago to Ad Dammam||42 days||45 days|
|Long Beach to Jeddah||40 days||45 days|
|Miami to Jeddah||–||32 days|
|Miami to Ad Dammam||–||41 days|
|Net York to Jeddah||36 days||–|
1 to 5 Days to Ship By Air
If you are in a rush and money isn’t a problem, you can choose air freight. Usually, we don’t recommend shipping by air consignments that weigh more than 100 kg because it is costly. However, if we ship your stuff from Houston to Riyadh, you will get your cargo in as little as one day. Airfreight from Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and Miami to Saudi’s capital and other main cities takes about 5 days on average.
