ARK RELOCATION: The Go-To Relocation Company When Looking To Ship Furniture Internationally


If you are moving with minimal items – say just one luggage bag, your relocation is most likely to be easy, quick and convenient. What makes most relocations difficult is that most people tend to pack and ship all their items at one go. Starting a new life in a different geographic location can be expensive but the overall costs can become prohibitive if you are starting a new life from scratch. When moving internationally, you can ensure the process is hassle-free while at the same time lowering the overall costs of starting life in your home by first relocating with essential items and shipping your furniture and other bulky items at a later date.


Why Is Shipping Furniture Separately a Great Idea?


Based on our experience in relocating people internationally – which spans over three decades, we have compiled a list of our top three reasons why it is a great idea to ship bulky items such as furniture separately. They include:


  • The process of shipping furniture internationally is rigorous – Your items will need to be packed, crated and passed through different customs inspection points which can lead to delays in arrival especially if you do not have the proper documentation

  • It can save you a great deal of money – If you ship your furniture without having a concrete plan on how they will be fitted into your new home, you may end up needing warehousing services which will lead to additional (but avoidable costs)

  • You get sufficient time within which to choose what to keep and what to take with you to your new life – Moving in its own right is stressful … During the relocation period, you may not be in the right frame of mind to choose the furniture to keep or leave behind. However, after settling in your new home, you can make unhurried decisions on the furniture that will fit in well in your new home
