International Packing Services
At Allied International, we offer you a full range of services to help you make your overseas move. International moving services are a world away from booking a traditional moving van to relocate your household goods. Our packing services offer door-to-door convenience for any destination worldwide.
How you prepare your household goods for shipping is up to you. We offer a pick up service if you would like to pack your own items. However, we can also provide a full-service move, where our team of experts come in and professionally pack your belongings, using custom crates where necessary, to ensure that all your prized possessions have the maximum protection.
We understand how important your belongings are. Most people have objects that are precious to them because of their history or sentimental value. Heirloom furniture that has been cared for and passed down by other members of your family is irreplaceable. The last thing you want to think about is losing any of your most precious items.

Packing Services for Overseas Shipping
If you are considering doing the packing for your overseas move yourself, you might want to think again. This kind of packing is an art. When you take a serious look at all that’s involved in getting it right, you might just change your mind. We recommend that you let international shipping experts pack up your household goods for you.
Many household are filled with fragile items, including:
- Musical Instruments
- Electronic Devices
These require special care to get them safely to their destination.
Items of furniture are generally solid and they are not designed to be moved. They are vulnerable to dents, surface damage, pieces being knocked off, and cracks. Any and all of these potential problems can become a reality if they are handled incorrectly. You don’t want to find that items have been misplaced, lost, or damaged when you get to your new destination.
Our packing experts know just how to wrap and protect all of your possessions to ensure that they arrive overseas safe and sound: no chips or scratches. They tissue or bubble wrap everything securely.
At Allied International, we organize the packing so that all similar items travel together in wooden crates or cartons. We know that the secret to quality packing methods is to use robust packing materials designed for overseas shipping.
Whether you are relocating across town or across the globe, moving can be a very stressful time for anyone. We at Allied International can take the stress of packing off your hands.
As our shipping experts do their initial walk-through of your home, they will assess exactly what kinds of protection are required. When they return, they will bring all the different moving boxes that you’ll need. We will also supply the correct packing materials to get your home wrapped up properly for your overseas move.
Not all boxes and crates are the same. Consider some of the differences:
- Heavy boxes – these are good for books, kitchen canisters, canned goods, records, shoes, appliances, and hand-and-power tools.
- General-purpose boxes – for toys, pots and pans, kitchen utensils, lampshades and sporting goods.
- Large, lightweight boxes – for pillows, bedding, and toys. You don’t want to overstuff these.
- Stand-up wardrobe boxes – these come complete with a metal bar for hanging clothes, curtains, and drapes.
- Dish pack boxes – these are divided up to hold individual glasses, cups, mugs, bowls, and other kitchenware. They are also great for smaller lampshades, pictures and knickknacks.
- Mirror boxes hold all of your mirrored items. They are also right for glass tabletops.
- Mattress boxes – available in crib, twin, standard, and queen/king sizes.
Moving overseas means putting everything in a box or a carton, carefully making sure that padding is available for every item. With Allied International, everything you own will be properly protected. You can rest assured that it will all arrive at your foreign destination just as it was when it left.
Furniture Wrapping Services
Furniture traveling overseas will need extra protection compared to other items. Our furniture-wrapping service will see that all of your pieces are carefully blanket-wrapped. This includes sofas, chairs, dressers, china cabinets, bookcases, side tables, and dressing tables.
By wrapping everything right, we can prevent scratches, dings, bumps, or lumps. You’ll avoid the heartache that comes when something precious is damaged.
Do you have unique or oversized items? These might be musical instruments, wall hangings, large furniture pieces, or valuable artwork? They are the items that you might worry about shipping, not just overseas, but anywhere.
