An overseas move is more than just a "move"

Careful packing, expert loading of the container, safe transport. For us, an overseas move means more than just bringing household items from one place to another. When moving overseas, you place your memories, your children's toys and your valuables in our hands. With our knowledge, experience and high service levels, we will do all we can to help you feel at home in your new location abroad. We look after the packing, and you travel in a relaxed manner to your destination. The transport is scheduled in such a way as to enable you to set up home after your arrival and enjoy your new life overseas. 

"We are there for you" is our own personal service intention, placing you as the customer 100% in the focus of the planning, move performance and consultation stages. In our book, support means that we take away any worries you may have before your overseas move. We are at your side when challenges make things difficult. We anticipate any problems before they occur. And we help you with in-depth preparation for your move overseas. This high-quality focus is embodied by everyone at Henk International, from trainees to the owners. Because we know: It's never been just about moving!

Your overseas move with Henk International – made-to-measure, reliably scheduled, sure to please!

Every overseas move involves a tremendous amount of logistics, which is often extremely difficult for private people to handle themselves. They simply don't have the time or the knowledge. We look after this logistical planning for you - from the beginning to the end. We develop a tailor-made, cost-efficient concept that leaves flexibility for your individual wishes. 

  • Overseas move by sea freight: the transport of your move by ship is a tried and tested option for overseas moves. Over many years we have successfully organised the moves of countless customers by sea. You benefit from our expertise, for example, the way we protect your possessions with special packing materials against moisture and breakage.   

  • Overseas move by air freight: Transport by air freight is much quicker and can be organised by us much cheaper than taking excess baggage on your flight. We advise our customers to have urgently-needed items, clothing or documents sent by air. In this way you have these items available shortly after your arrival.


Your preferences for dates and your individual requirements will be incorporated into the move concept wherever possible. Dismantling furniture, export packing, transport and logistics will all be planned by us in such a way that you can leave your old house nice and relaxed and then arrive at your overseas destination with no worries. During the whole process, we attach great importance to our high-quality standards and the subject of sustainability, for example regarding packing materials or the electromobility of our vehicle fleet. 

We can provide you with a personalised service that purely online moving platforms cannot achieve. We only work with experienced overseas partners who we can trust because we have known them personally for many years. In this way, we can guarantee high-quality standards of all staff members and the best service throughout your move.  As a result, you benefit from the global partner network of Henk International.
