Shipping Services from Milwaukee, WI – How Does It Work?
The international household goods and car shipping process depends on your chosen services. You can opt for a door-to-door delivery, which means we will pick up your stuff from your place and transport it to the port. After your consignment arrives in your destination country and clears from customs, it will be delivered right to your doorsteps.
With port-to-port delivery, you are responsible for getting your stuff to the port. Once it arrives there, we will load your cargo on the ship, insure (if purchased in advance) and prepare the shipping documentation. When it reaches the port of destination, we’ll inform you accordingly.
Port-to-door service is another alternative. Your shipping container will arrive at one of the designated ports in Milwaukee and then at one of our base ocean terminals. Next, our logistics team will coordinate the customs clearance and delivery to your final destination.

What If I Need To Ship Overseas a Large House from Milwaukee?
Moving large homes, such as four-bedroom apartments, isn’t a problem. All international moves via ocean freight are performed in shipping containers.
At SDC International Shipping, we offer standard and high-cube 20ft and 40ft containers. You can book a Full Container Load (FCL) and use the space to the fullest. For small shipments, the most popular method is Less Container Load (LCL), which means your things will be part of multiple shipments for the same destination. It’s also the cheapest ocean freight mode.
Our shipping agents personalize each individual shipment. We’ll recommend the best option based on the volume of your household goods, delivery schedules and methods, and destination.
How Long Does It Take to Ship Overseas from Milwaukee?
Depending on where you are shipping worldwide, it may take 8 to 10 weeks to transport your container on water. However, shipping overseas can also be done via air freight. Although more expensive than sea freight, it is the fastest method.
Milwaukee international movers specialize in air freight as well. If you need to get your home goods quickly, it is the best option as you won’t need to wait weeks to get your things.
What Can I Do to Protect My Shipment from Damage?
Packing and sturdy wrapping are what you can do to protect your furniture, books, electronics, appliances, and smaller flat items from damage.
At SDC International Shipping, you can book a professional packing service that will survive getting dropped, vibrations, compression, and potential temperature changes.
Despite this, unforeseen outcomes still occur. To protect yourself from losing money due to lost, stolen, or damaged boxes, we recommend buying moving insurance that will cover the replacement cost for damaged shipments.
