Important to know before your move

 

9/11 caused the US Customs Bureau to instigate increased awareness of all shipments which enter the USA.

For this reason, expect that customs officers will thoroughly check import documentation and reject incomplete or incorrect documents. The shipments such documents accompany will be placed on hold, meaning you will not have access to your goods until authorized by customs and your shipment will incur demurrage charges.

An increasing number of shipments entering the USA are x-rayed and/or randomly selected for physical inspection. These inspections will also cause delays in customs clearance, once again preventing your access to the shipment until authorized and also incurring demurrage and/or per diem charges.

At present customs clearance normally takes an average of 4 to 8 days from the shipment’s arrival.

 

Nobel Relocation advises you to forward all import documentation to our office at least seven (7) days prior to your shipment’s arrival, including:

 

 

** EVERY NON-US CITIZEN MUST BE PRESENT IN THE UNITED STATES WHEN HIS/HER SHIPMENT ARRIVES.

Nobel Relocation International Shipment Types:

.
LCL – Less than Container Load 

If you consider yourself a minimalist or you plan to sell many of your household goods before moving, your possessions may not fill up an entire ocean container. In that case, you may be able to share the container with another shipper’s goods. Your possessions are separated inside the ocean container.

 

FCL – Full Container Load 

If you have a full house and numerous possessions, you may benefit from hiring a full container. The benefits of using a full container are that you do not have to share with another shipper and you will likely have an easier time clearing customs when you reach the US. You and your family will also be the only ones capable of accessing the contents of the container.

 

Before You Leave

Before you pack a single box, it’s important to discuss with Nobel Relocations what you intend to move. Certain possessions may be difficult, cumbersome, or too fragile to transport, while others, such as regulated or controlled substances like firearms, may require additional paperwork. We can consult with you the best way to pack your possessions in order to experience an easy passage into the United States.
