Southern Winds International
The Choice For International Relocations Since 1996
Moving is one of the most stressful experiences in a person’s life. There are so many vital steps and choosing the right company is an extremely important decision. We understand that there is much to anticipate and plan for when moving overseas.We understand that you are not just moving your belongings from one place to another. You’re moving to a new country with different customs and possibly a different language.
Our professional moving directors will advise you on the most cost-effective and most efficient mode of transportation and will be your single contact throughout the entire relocation. We understand that our role is much more than merely that of a transportation tool. We are a ‘team’ who serve your relocation needs through pro-active communication. You need a company with knowledge, experience and comprehensive resources to transport you globally.
Our skilled professionals will effectively pack up your entire residence and prepare your belongings for the rigorous journey overseas. Your personal director will prepare the necessary documents required for international shipping. The destination agent will clear your shipment through customs, arrange the trucking from the port and then deliver your shipment to your new home.
We work with agents who are highly qualified for both origin and destination services and who have proven their essential quality of caring repeatedly. We have established long term relationships with many of these agents and they have been chosen based on their ability to provide excellent service and their willingness to follow our stringent guidelines of customer service.
Customer Satisfaction Is Our Top Priority
Whatever the volume of your relocation, wherever your move may take you, Southern Winds International executes each move with a careful regard to quality. Please, take a moment to check the many advantages we offer. We pride ourselves on our commitment to improving services by being a customer-driven company dedicated to meeting your relocation needs.
Air Transportation is the fastest mode of International Shipping. You should always consider airfreight transportation of items that you and/or your family will need immediately upon arriving in your destination country (i.e., essentials that cannot wait) until your sea-bound shipment arrives.
The determining cost of airfreight is weight. It is based on a 10.4 density factor or actual gross weight, whichever is greater.
LDN container, 56″ x 55″ x 57″ / 101cft, with an actual gross weight of 500lbs. The chargeable weight for 101cft by the airlines is 1050lbs based on 10.4 density factor. Thus, your airfreight rate is based on 1050lbs.
