Chipman International specializes in the overseas door-to-door movement of household goods and personal effects. Door-to-door service includes a survey, packing, wrapping, loading, ocean/air freight, customs clearance, and delivery to the residence, unpacking and debris removal. We also provide full replacement insurance.

Chipman International is very different from most movers. Our international office and crews are separate from our domestic moving divisions. Chipman International's crews only perform overseas moves. They are specially trained to professionally pack, wrap and load household goods and personal effects for overseas transportation. This is very important because international moving is based on size and shape, while domestic moving is based on weight and distance. While domestic moving crews know how to blanket wrap furniture for domestic van transport, only trained international crews know how to expertly wrap furniture in overseas pads for transportation in ocean and air freight containers. The added knowledge means the difference between a claim free move and a very unhappy employee.

One Point of Contact

Chipman International will provide one point of contact for the entire move process. This means that one Chipman customer service representative will make all of the appropriate arrangements from the initial survey to the final unpacking. Chipman International is proud that our customer service representatives have an average of 15 to 20 years of experience in overseas moving. Our experience means that employees will be helped by qualified professionals with the skill and savvy to expedite the move process and prevent problems before they occur.

Experienced Forwarder

Chipman International is a fully licensed household good forwarder with over 25 years of experience. We independently control each step of the employee's move. For example, Chipman can contact the various steamship lines to see which provides the best routing and the most competitive pricing. If you use Chipman, there are no middle companies involved. This arrangement allows Chipman to avoid the cumbersome layers of communication and personnel that plague the typical mover/ van line relationship. This measure of control allows Chipman to quickly respond to employees needs.
