How much does Allied Van Lines cost for International Moving?

  • Storage:

The amount you will pay for storage depends on how long you need it, the volume of items and belongings to be stored, and climate control.

 

  • Custom duties:

While the average international rate is 1.8%, every country has its own rules and regulations for importing goods. This means that you need to be prepared to pay 1.8% of the purchase price of assets to be moved. 

 

  • Shipping your vehicle overseas with import charges and tax duties could reach up to $4,000. 

 

  • You can save cost on moving by doing your packing and unpacking, but you have to do it with durable materials so that your belongings do not arrive at their destination damaged or broken. 
  • Taking moving insurance to protect your items is usually calculated based on the value of the items being shipped, which is often between $100 to $1,000

 

Other factors that determine Allied Van Lines costs are:

  • Weight of your items
  •  Time of the year
  •  Taxes 
  • Distance.
