Shipping and Removals in the USA

The costs and logistics of shipping items to or from the USA are largely dependent on the area of the country goods are being shipped to. 

Both the east and west coasts of the USA have a number of major ports, making it shipping to these regions less expensive than inland. To deliver smaller cargo to landlocked cities it is much faster to use air-freight delivery. It is a good idea to buy cargo insurance, and most reputable movers will offer this. 


Shipping household goods to the USA

Household goods can be brought into the USA duty-free as long as they are not new and have been in use for at least a year prior to relocation. When transporting household goods into the USA, it's important to ensure that a full and detailed inventory list accompanies the shipment.


Shipping pets to the USA

To bring pets into the country, expats will most likely need to be in possession of a health certificate. Rabies vaccinations are usually not required for either dogs or cats, but this may differ depending on country of origin and the state that one plans to live in. For this reason, it's a good idea to double check pet transport regulations before leaving.
