FAQs

Delivery timing is dependent upon on the destination. Typically, an international ocean shipment can take around 5-9 weeks, whereas air shipments typically experience shorter transit times of around 1-3 weeks.

We recognize that moving can be costly. We research the most economical methods of transportation to ensure that we are giving you the best pricing available. While we may not always be the cheapest option, our value comes with proactive planning, market research, and pricing analysis to minimize charges and fees. Our goal is to give you the most transparent information and pricing possible so that you can make an informed decision.

Because international household goods moves go through additional customs checks at origin and destination, we recommend that you do not do your own packing. Any shipment marked as “Pack by Owner (PBO)”, will have an increased likelihood of being flagged by customs authorities for additional inspections. This often results in port delays and additional costs to you. When Planes International Moving Services performs your move, we inspect pre-packed boxes and pack your remaining items, reducing the possibility of additional inspections and cost. In addition, by professionally packing your belongings, we can then offer you full protection transit coverage for the duration of your move, giving you complete peace of mind.

Yes. To help you make an informed decision, we are happy to guide you through the selection process to ensure that all comparison quotes have the same inclusions, exclusions, and move detail.

Yes, but how much protection you have and its cost to you depend upon the “valuation” option you choose – Basic Protection/ Released Value Liability (60 cents per pound per article, 30 cents per pound per article in Illinois), or Full-Value Protection based on the dollar amount you declare. Ensure that you accurately value your belongings so that you are covered appropriately. We also recommend that you speak with your insurance agent about your Home Owner’s Policy to see if you have any coverage for your belongings during a move.

Basic coverage, which is provided at no additional charge means that our maximum liability for loss or damage to any article in your shipment is 60/30 cents multiplied by the weight of the article. What does that mean? If you have a 50” flat screen TV that weighs 25 lbs. you will receive $15.15 to cover the damage. Our crews do everything they can to prevent damage to your belongings but in the rare instances where items incur damage, it is important to understand the type of coverage you have. Valuation does work a little differently if you have a local vs. a long distance move. So, if you have any additional questions, be sure to ask one of our moving experts.
