How does moving internationally with TAXIBOX work?
Moving internationally with TAXIBOX is just like moving locally with TAXIBOX – we deliver your TAXIBOX to you, you pack it at your own pace, we collect your belongings and deliver them to your new address (on the other side of the world). It’s that simple!
Once your TAXIBOX is packed and ready to go with a detailed inventory list and some other entry form requirements, our team will ensure all documentation is sorted before we ship your items overseas. If you elect door-to-door delivery services, our team will assist you with customs documentation, customs clearance and delivery once your items have arrived at your destination country.
Why do I need to prepare an inventory list?
Creating a detailed inventory list is required for your international move to declare your property for customs clearance purposes. Your inventory form must include your full name, your TAXIBOX unit numbers, and your full origin and destination addresses. But no stress – we will provide you with detailed guidelines when you book with us.
How do I know how many TAXIBOXES I'll need for my international move?
Generally, you will need one TAXIBOX for every 1-1.5 rooms’ worth of items you’re moving – to see how many TAXIBOXES you may need, try our Storage Calculator.
What is the estimate shipping timeframe at my destination?
Your shipping timeframe and arrival date at your destination is estimated to be 10-15 weeks (depending on where you’re moving to). We can provide you with a more accurate timeframe once you fill out the form below.
