Moving companies

Moving companies are responsible for the safe transportation of household goods from one house to another. They typically pack your goods into moving boxes at the origin and place them in a container. The container can then either be brought to a port for loading onto a ship or transported over a truck to the destination. Containers that are shipped will have to clear customs before they are loaded again onto a truck. Once the truck arrives at the destination, a separate moving company unloads the boxes and unpacks them at your new home. It is possible to save on costs by doing the packing and unpacking yourself but then the moving company is typically not responsible for any broken goods.
