Peace of mind and time to focus on other things

Once the move date is set, all you have to do is open the door to our professional packers. They will take it from there: pack your household in record time, carefully load it, safely transport it to your new home and then unpack it with the utmost care.


Here's how this works
First we will ask you to provide some details about your move. We will use this information to begin preparing your personalised quotation.
Once we've got those details, our experts will contact you to schedule a date for a survey. This will be either an online survey or a face-to-face survey of your property. The survey allows us to make an accurate volume estimation of the household goods you will be moving. Then we will provide you with a price quotation for your full-service move.
You will receive our personalised quotation, including terms & conditions and full information on transport insurance, within 1 – 2 working days after the survey.
Once all your questions are clarified and you have signed the contract, then your personal Move Manager will contact you to agree on the next steps.

Guide by Packimpex


Find out how to organise your international move, get some basic tips on how to select between moving providers and also, get a cost estimate for your upcoming move.

This will take between 1 – 4 weeks on average (if moving within Europe)
You will need to be extra organized and coordinate the move AND the home finding process
Make sure you have storage options in case you are not able to find a home at your destination in due time


Follow these expert tips:


What to take with you when you move
Go through your things and decide what you want to take with you. Take only those things that you deem are absolutely necessary and will give you a sense of 'home'.
If you’re moving on a tight budget, start to drastically reduce the amount of stuff to take with you. Many countries have numerous second-hand stores, so you will easily find affordable furniture.


How to choose between moving providers
Ask for at least 3 moving quotes and carefully analyse them. Negotiate! See if any of them has the option of placing some items in storage and at what cost.
Expert tip: To identify quality international movers, make sure they are a member of the International Movers Association FIDI, which provides the only worldwide recognised quality standard in the industry. All FIDI moving companies are independently audited by Ernst & Young.


How to best handle the move yourself

If you decide to handle an international move by yourself, you should be aware that there are restrictions to the items you can import.


Additional need-to-knows

How to select your moving provider


Make sure all quotes contain this info:


Shipping mode
Expected transit time
Required documents for customs clearance
Insurance coverage and premium
Payment terms


Check weight/volume estimates. If there are significant differences, ask why.


Do not only compare the price, look at inclusions and exclusions. If they are not identical, how do they impact the quoted price?


Check the insurance coverage and insurance premium. A small difference of 0.5% might make a significant difference when calculated on the insurance value.


Evaluate the professionalism of the surveyors, the information received, the timeframe between survey and quote and the overall impressions you have of the companies.
