International Movers

In business since 1914, Pickens-Kane is an industry leader for international moving services and storage solutions.

We have also received the “Customer Choice/Quality” Agent of the Year for Allied International award twice. When you choose us as your international relocation company in Chicago, you can trust you are in the most capable and qualified hands. Our tremendous success is due in part to our global network of moving and storage professionals operating in 135 countries, allowing us to provide the most streamlined international moving and storage from Chicago to virtually anywhere in the world. No matter where your life is taking you, you can trust the experienced and qualified experts at Pickens-Kane/Allied International to get you there easily and efficiently.

Experienced and Efficient International Moving

With decades of service in the moving industry, Pickens-Kane International is the most experienced Chicago international mover. One of the most difficult aspects of your move to navigate is customs procedures, and having an inexperienced mover can result in shipment delays, increased pricing and even confiscation of your belongings.

The safety of your items is our number one priority, and we offer Zero-Deductible Replacement Value Transit Protection to cover your goods while in our care. In the event that a claim arises, you don't have to deal with the hassle of a third-party insurance provider. Unlike many of our competitors, we offer in-house claims settlement and Allied International will arrange for repair or replacement as soon as possible.

Your Relocation Partner to Clear International Customs

Customs clearance has become increasingly complicated due to heightened security concerns. At Pickens-Kane International, you can rely on the expertise and knowledge of your Personal Care Coordinator to expertly guide you through this troublesome process.

  • Each country has its own list of restricted items. To avoid any problems or delays in clearing your shipment though customs, customs documents are included in the information packets that we provide to you at the start of your move, along with a list of items prohibited from entry into your destination country.
  • Your coordinator will help you with completion of the required documents then forward them to Pickens-Kane International’s authorized destination partner agent. The destination agent, in turn, verifies that all of rout information is correct and complete before passing the documents on to the customs broker.
  • Our state-of-the-art online shipment tracking system will allow you to monitory your shipment throughout the journey-from loading, through customs and onto delivery.
