How I Saved 45% Off International Moving


Looking to ship my luggage and furniture overseas, I had some time to do my research to find the right carrier and a fair price. I heard so many horror stories about international shippers losing packages and charging an arm and a leg to deliver the household goods.

Since all I had was time on my side, I submitted few moving quote requests through the websites I found on Google. The websites were professionally designed and easy to absorb your personal data but here is what I learned real fast:

  • Your Contact data is farmed out and sold to other movers. You will never know who will call you back. Anyone can buy your contact and move details for as low as $5.00 per lead.
  • Moving lead farms do not screen their vendors.
  • The Quotes are not guaranteed, there are tons of hidden fees. from fuel surcharges to delivery fees.
  • Most consolidators will sit on your shipment until the container is full, that can mean weeks of waiting.
  • The devil is in the details, some movers lack the knowledge to properly complete the Bill Of Lading.

Always, research the company you hire to help you move overseas, use the BBB or the local business chambers to solicit feedback. In my case, I was happy to select Neighborhood Parcel to handle my move and here is why:

  1. A+ Rating with the Boston BBB
  2. AAA Rating with the Boston Business Chamber.
  3. Fully licensed and insured Mover.
  4. Full service Mover: Packaging & Shipping services.
  5. Locally Owned and Operated Business.
  6. Not a data farm, they secure your contact details.
  7. Fast Response to Moving Quotes

Best Way To Ship Overseas


Shipping Overseas Is Not Easy!

International shipping has its advantages from a value perspective because of merchandise and Technology availability overseas and US Dollar Currency Exchange rate that can be very beneficial. However in dealing with international shipping, you will soon discover that you will deal with your destination’s customs office to clear the shipment before you get it delivered.

Neighborhood Parcel has decades of International shipping experience to over 220 worldwide destination and throughout the years we have identified these destinations as the most corrupt countries, in another word, you will need to bribe a customs officer or local government to access your merchandise. Often this is in addition to customs duty taxes assessed.

To avoid delays and maintain control of the shipment, we discovered that DHL has the Most Secure Export system worldwide where they maintain control of the shipment at all the time. Another way, if you ship an Apple iphone or iPad to Russia, DHL will get the clearance done electronically whenever possible and keeps possession of the merchandise. If you ship the same item using Express Mail for example, the phone is given to customs office for clearance and if in most cases if they like it, they will tax it and assess so many fees to discourage you from getting it and they will confiscate it in the end. DHL will cost a little more up front but you maintain control of your packages at all time.

The second best way is FedEx, they tend to be a little bit cheaper via their Economy service, delivery is usually within 5 to 10 Business days. They are great for deliveries to Europe and Latin America.

The Third and Least Expensive way to ship is to use an Air Cargo Door to door or Door to Port Carrier service like TNTAir Cargo or UPS. They offer great savings for International Moving or Large Cargo shipments, they utilize passenger air crafts to maintain lost cost and low overhead. They can issue Bill Of Lading and Online Tracking just like the other more expensive services.

Worst Way To Ship Overseas

Our Opinion throughout the years of experience is that the Post Office is the worst way to ship your valuable packages. Simply because the post office in most developing countries is corrupt and valuable shipments end up being stolen. The US Post office will provide online tracking until the package leave the US and you will never be able to track it. The loss claim process is very complicated and will take months to resolve. While Priority Mail and International Mail EMS are cheap and economical, it is not the most secure option to get valuable packages delivered.

International Shipping Guide


Shipping internationally from Boston or Lowell MA can be very confusing with the many forms, foreign addresses and different courier services available. In addition to the confusion, worrying about lost, stolen or damaged packages might make you think twice about sending an expensive item overseas. However, you can do several things to ensure your package arrives safely to its destination. Leaving this complex task to the expect can be your first step, Neighborhood Parcel with its decades of service in the international shipping and packaging industry can make your next shipment simple and affordable.

Boston Packaging

During the international shipping process, packages are handled, loaded and unloaded many times. This is why you should carefully consider how you will protect your shipment. Use sturdy, undamaged cardboard box as your container. Holes or tears in boxes can become bigger as they are handled multiple times. Use approved shipping tape, which is typically made of strong, clear plastic and adhesive. Do not use masking tape, which tears easily and is meant to be used while painting, not for shipping packages. Some couriers, such as UPS, will not accept packages wrapped in masking tape.

For the interior, consider using bubble wrap, which is reusable and recyclable. Wrap the items well to protect them — and not just from damage. Despite measures by governments to protect packages, theft can happen. Some nations require that all packages be opened to verify their contents, and dishonest workers occasionally take advantage. By wrapping the item well in bubble wrap and tape, you have a better chance at thwarting thieves who must work quickly to take what they want. For professional packaging service, you can rely on Neighborhood Parcel to do all your packaging and shipping services.

Addresses and International Customs

The forms you use for international shipping are extremely important. Ensure that the destination address is correct. If you are sending to a country where English is not widely spoken, such as China, include the foreign language address alongside the English address to assist the foreign courier service that will be handling your package once it arrives to port. Many international customs officials are wary of packages without return addresses, so don’t forget yours. Our Neighborhood Parcel consultants will help our clients complete all export documents correctly and at no additional charge.

In addition to the destination address, customs forms such as Certificate Of Origin and Commercial invoice are typically required. These forms will ask for addresses, the names of the shipper and recipient, an item list and an estimated cost of the items you are shipping. Depending on the total cost, additional customs fees may be required. Without customs forms, the recipient nation reserves the right to hold your package indefinitely.

Boston Shipping Couriers

Many companies ship internationally; however we prefer to use FedEx, TNT, DHL and the U.S. Postal Service. Not every courier will be able to deliver to your destination address, so it is important that you check with us to see if they ship to your desired area. FedEx and DHL run their shipping service similar to how it is run in the U.S. You ship with the same company that delivers the package. But DHL and the U.S. Postal Service, especially the latter, often work with the foreign postal service to deliver the package. For shipments to rural locations, using the area’s local postal service is usually better than using a foreign shipping company like FedEx or DHL.
