Our International Removals Services to the USA

Allied are the international furniture removals and relocation specialists in Australia. Our expert team of friendly, professional removalists have helped thousands of individuals and families make the move overseas to their new home in the United State of America and we would love to do the same for you. If you’re thinking about moving overseas from Australia, do so with the moving company more Australians trust to get them there in one piece. Our international relocation services include:


There are strict importation laws and processes in place when importing items into the USA and it is for these reasons we recommend that Allied professionally pack your consignment. The packing teams take responsibility for the safety of your belongings and have the appropriate resources and materials required to ensure that the items arrives safely.

Our team of international removalists are professionally trained in wrapping and packing techniques in preparing your items for international transportation.

Moving overseas always presents risks, especially when travelling long distances across the ocean. There are circumstances outside of our direct control when moving overseas and why the team at Allied recommend considering our International Transit insurance.

In the unlikely event your furniture or home contents are affected, Allied offers a comprehensive transit and storage insurance solution for household moves and can provide you with a comprehensive “New for Old” cover. Ask our team for a copy of Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) so you can consider the most appropriate level of cover that best suits your needs.

Many clients may not want to move all of their effects overseas and is why we offer a short or long term storage for those clients moving overseas. With our international network of over 600 locations around the world you can store your goods safely here in Australia or in anyone of our locations across the United States of America.

Our removals team will place all of your furniture into our storage modules which are designed to allow the furniture to breathe, and are also dust-proof and vermin-proof. All items placed into storage will be listed on an inventory list, then packed and moved to a designated Allied storage facility and placed into a secure storage environment.

Vehicle Transport

Getting a car imported to the USA can be difficult, so it is necessary to establish prior to shipment that it meets the criteria, otherwise it could be returned to origin or confiscated at the owner’s cost. For these reasons vehicles are best shipped separate from any personal effects. It is important to speak with one of our move consultants about the process as rules and regulations are subject to change and will vary at times depending on the individual circumstance.

Pet Transport

Moving to United States of America can be a stressful experience when leaving family and friends behinds. The team at Allied understand that Pets can also be part of the extended family and a major consideration when moving overseas.

There are strict controls and restrictions on the importation of animals, which is regulated by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service and U.S. Public Health Service. As regulations can often change we always would recommend that you speak to your Allied move consultants to ensure we can refer you to an approved pet specialist in this area.

What do you need to do when moving overseas from Australia to the USA?

To ensure your international furniture removal requirements to the United States of America are not only met, but exceeded, choose the international removalist company that helps you understand what it take to undertake a successful overseas move.

Do I have to be in the country when my goods are delivered as I may be travelling at the time?

Yes – There are certain regulations for when clients are moving into United States of America that stipulate you must be in the country on arrival of your personal effects.

If I have new furniture and household items will there be any taxes payable?

Any new items may be subject to customs inspection and charges. It is best to speak to one of our move consultants for more information.

How long will my goods take to get to United States of America from Australia?

The length of time for transit will vary from each capital city area and depending on what vessel dates are available at the time of booking. As a guide, we have put together the following table but these are indicative timeframes only and will always vary depending on the destination and shipping timetables.

Can I take foodstuffs into United States of America?

United States of America have very strict laws and regulations when transporting any type of food into the country. Food of any type, including herbs and spices/beverages, can cause delays in terms of clearances, so it is not recommended for inclusion in a personal effects shipment.

Can I take my car to the United States of America?

Yes you can, although it can be difficult, so it is necessary to establish prior to shipment that it meets the criteria, otherwise it could be returned to origin or confiscated at the owner’s cost. For these reasons vehicles are best shipped separate from any personal effects. It is important to speak with one of our move consultants about the process as rules and regulations are subject to change and will vary at times depending on the individual circumstance.

In most cases, cars can be imported duty free if owned for more than one year. All vehicles must meet stringent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Dept of Transport Standards (DOT) criteria. Vehicles over 25 years old are exempt, but forms must still be completed.

Speak to one our moving consultants for more information.

Can I take my electrical items to the United States of America?

Electrical items will not generally function on the US system, due to the different voltages used.

Can I move my pet to the United States of America?

Yes you can, although there are strict controls and restrictions on the importation of animals, which is regulated by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service and U.S. Public Health Service. Your move consultant will be able to provide more information.

Can you help me with the Customs forms?

Your move co-ordinator and consultant will guide you through the process. We do have a guide, “How to fill out your U.S. Customs Form” to ensure we make it as easy as possible.

Allied have many shipping services to America. These range from “Shared Containers” where you have a small amount of furniture to be moved so you only pay for the space you use in the container right up to 40 Foot container shipments. The transit period for shared containers will be slightly longer and if you are not in a hurry for your furniture items this option can be a very cost effective way in moving to United States of America.

For those customers with full households to be moved our “Sole-Use” transit method may be more convenient and cost effective where we can then plan around specific dates and time frames when moving to the United States of America.

We can arrange air freight services where goods are required in a very short space of time to get you up and running in your new home overseas. Speak to one of our move consultants for more information and what type of transit method will best suit your needs and budget.

Not only are there logistical factors in this process but furniture is not designed to be moved and prone to risk during the transit. This is why Allied have developed our comprehensive Transit and Storage insurance policy to give you total peace of mind whilst your goods are in transit. As part of this process we have our own Financial Services Licence* which allows us the flexibility to offer our customers cover for your effects to their full replacement value (new for old) when moving overseas and in the rare instance of a claim ensuring you deal with a dedicated case manager – no messy third parties!

*Financial Services Licence # 294595 is registered under the name of SIRVA Pty Ltd trading as Allied.

Importing your furniture & household items to the United States of America

When moving to United States of America, there are important considerations that you need to make sure of when relocating. It is important that all of your belongings are packed and labeled in the right way, and that they’re all acceptable for the authorities on the other side.

Importation of goods to the USA is overseen by the Department for Homeland Security and consignments arriving in the continental United States are considered from several angles with regards to Security, Safety, Customs Tax and Duty Revenues and Environmental Protection.

Your Move Consultant will provide you with the advice and forms required to ensure your move is completed with ease as these rules and regulations can change from time to time. Allied has been moving people from Australia to United States of America for decades and are the award winning international moving company that people turn to time and time again.

Moving to America or anywhere across the United States of America is a long way from home! When moving to America, the journey is over 15,000 kilometres from Australia which means you need proven and experienced removalists to help you get there.

“Top customer service from every staff member”

I received a very friendly welcome at the depot and advice to repack for the safety of my belongings – then with my permission the guys did it for me! I was very impressed. When it came to collection at the other end the depot gave follow up calls and ensured I knew where my boxes were and when to expect them. Then they arrived about a week early so I was very pleased! Planning on using them again soon. Great value for money and lovely people to deal with.
Tessa, Melbourne
