Every Kinetix International household goods moves requires that we perform a pre-move survey in order to ensure that policy, move requirements and cost accuracy are defined at the onset of the process. The survey results are inspected to further ensure that the proper labor team is provided, all necessary packing materials are available, enough van space is reserved, and realistic service dates for pack, load and delivery are committed. Proper tariff application and post-move invoice auditing begin with the pre-move survey.
Expert Export Wrapping
Every Kinetix International origin services crew is trained specifically for international packing, export wrapping and loading. The vast majority of our agents are also FIDI, FAIM and RIM certified. At the transferee’s residence, the origin crew will perform their tasks as the transferee observes in order to maintain confidence and satisfaction. All furniture and fragile items will be wrapped with bubble plastic or paper padding as required. Special crates and export packing materials will be constructed for fragile and oversized items.
