use the following points as a guideline for the costs that may be included in or excluded from your international moving estimate:
- included costs (at door to door service level): packing and loading from residence with door to door transportation. terminal handling charges (thc) including delivery to residence, unpacking and loading, basic furniture set-up, and removal of debris at time of delivery. thc & customs clearance procedures are included unless not allowed by local government.
- excluded costs: moving estimates do not include valuation, potential customs duties, taxes, storage, specialized packing, crating services, fees for shuttles, long carries, hoisting, or any container detention or demurrage charges due to circumstances beyond our control.
it’s important to note that all cost inclusions and exclusions for your international moving estimate vary from situation to situation, depending on the countries involved. for example, in brazil and argentina the government will not allow a company such as UniGroup Worldwide Moving to be involved in customs clearance, and terminal handling charges are billed directly to the customer by the government. your move consultant will walk you the estimation process during your in-home survey.
