To be successful at shipping a household abroad, you require a removal company with a reliable and global network of partners. Due to the membership in the IAM (International Association of Movers), we have partners at all sea harbours and destinations worldwide. Every removal abroad by Friedrich Friedrich is managed by a removal coordinator right from the outset and accompanied right to the end. The removal coordinator is always informed regarding the current status of the ocean and air freight shipments and in contact with all the responsible agents, customs authorities, freight forwarders and shipping companies. He always has online access to the track & trace portals of the carriers. Should this be desired, this monitoring can be conducted in English throughout the procedure. You can relax and lean back, resting assured in the knowledge that we are diligently doing what we are best at – removals, meaning you won’t have a care in the world!

What characterises professional abroad packaging?
Transportation abroad is subjected to other conditions than a removal within Germany. With international transports, different forwarding agents pack and unpack the removal items in each case. Frequently, the freight is subjected to extreme climatic and physical conditions, so that the main task is to ensure abroad packaging is baled and organised in such a manner that the items can arrive without loss and damage.
The special packaging for abroad prevents the removal items from forming condensate, which happens when it is not packed air-tight. It must be able to withstand the rugged treatment and, as the case may be, atmospheric conditions on container ships. Thus, non-expert preparation of items that are to be sent abroad can lead to severe damage. Because furniture also has a minor share of wood moisture, the packaging for the long transport must be air-permeable, so that the wood can breathe. Else there is the risk of the removal items being damaged due to condensate formation.
Friedrich Friedrich has specially trained employees with many years of experience who know what is important when it comes to transporting items abroad.
