Cost of moving internationally

Every international move is different and every person will have different requirements. Many factors play a role in the costs for your international move:

- Are there any customs formalities?
- Do you need help with air freight?
- Could time problems arise during your international move and do you need temporary or long-term and
  secure storage?
- Do you need a wide range of supporting moving services and moving equipment?
- What amount are you going to move internationally?
- Do you need moving insurance?

International moving involves more than just moving boxes. Especially if you are going to move internationally overseas and your goods are probably moving abroad by container. Don't compromise when it comes to moving your precious goods internationally. Cheap can turn out to be expensive afterwards.

Therefore choose an experienced, internationally certified international mover such as De Haan. Certifications that ensure consistent, thorough processes to minimize the potential for costly errors. Your belongings, dear to everyone and full of memories and emotions, are more than worth our care. We work sustainably, cost-consciously, safely and efficiently with a constant focus on high quality and customer satisfaction.

Friendly & professional service. Very satisfied.


Moving to France,
from Netherlands

May 10 2024

For our move to Portugal, we were looking for a reliable company that would responsibly transport our belongings at a reasonable price. A thorough intake process resulted in a quote that felt right. Although some things ultimately went slightly differently than planned (a moving lift couldn't be used at the departure location, and at the final destination, the last part of the road was too narrow for the moving truck), there were no additional costs. More importantly, all the staff remained friendly and helpful, and there was plenty of laughter. Highly recommended! We are left with a very good feeling. Thanks to everyone at De Haan Relocation, Netherlands who contributed!
