International Removal United States

International Removal United States


An international removal to the United States? The United States has one of the strongest economies in the world and the standard of living of its citizens is one of the highest in the West. In fact, this country not only represents an excellent opportunity for investors but also for people looking for new career opportunities. If you are also planning to move to this country, you can leave everything in our hands. Grupo Amygo offers you a professional international moving service to the United States so that your belongings pass through customs without any problems and arrive intact to your new home.

United States is currently the world’s largest economy and one of the major recipients of expatriate Spaniards and American expatriates issuers to Spain.

Its prestigious universities, the development of industry and services, as well as its high technological level have also contributed to the fact that in the last decade the Spanish community has been the group that has grown the most in percentage terms in the United States.

Administrative formalities for an international removal to the US

There is a very rigid visa system with requirements adapted to each case, which is divided into three categories for all non-US citizens who wish to work and reside in the United States:

  • The green card, also called “Green Card”, is a permanent resident card valid for 10 years and grants the right to live and work for the rest of their lives in the United States. Another way to obtain a “Green Card” is to participate in the national lottery organised every year by the US government, in which 55,000 residency visas are raffled off.
  • An Employment Authorization Document (work permit or also called EAD).
  • A work visa that allows you to work for an employer who authorises you. The U.S. Embassy in Madrid can provide you with more information.

Documents for an international move to the USA

You must provide US Customs and Administration with a number of documents:

  • A copy of your passport or ID card with a valid expiry date
  • A medical certificate
  • An employment contract
  • An extract from your criminal record
  • An extract from your birth certificate
  • A family record book if you have children
  • Work permit or transfer order
  • Inventory of the goods being transported

Grupo Amygo operates frequently with the United States, and works with international organisations based in the United States, such as the IAM (International Association of Movers). This organization is the guarantee of seriousness and competence for international removals.

Our agreements with IAM (International Association of Movers) allow us to reach any point in the United States and the world with a quality door-to-door service and an extensive network of collaborators with great experience in the sector.

Preparing your international move to the United States

For an international move to the United States, the first step is to establish an estimate with a company specialised in international removals. Depending on the number of items to be moved, a technician from the agency will come to your home to estimate the final volume, and to check the items that require specific packing, such as mirrors, paintings, sculptures, musical instruments, crockery, fragile objects, etc.

At the end of this analysis, the removal company must provide you with an estimate including customs, insurance and packing costs. In Grupo Amygo we inform you about all customs fees and the best transport solutions to accompany each case in a personalized way.

Depending on the destination city, the period and the volume to be transported, the deadlines may be different. The modes of transport are air freight, containers by ship or shared containers in which your belongings travel with those of other people to the same destination.

Grupo Amygo helps you with your move to the USA

In Grupo Amygo we take care of everything, from packing at your home to unpacking at destination, and during the transit time we will inform you of the follow-up. Regarding the price of the international moving to the United States, this varies depending on the volume and destination.

Keep in mind that a surface of 20m3 represents approximately 40 to 50 m2. For example, you can put in a 20m3 container: a three-seater sofa, 5 chairs, an armchair, two wardrobes, a chest of drawers, a bed, a desk, a refrigerator, a washing machine, a cooker, a dishwasher, and between 5 and 10 cartons.

The final price of an international move to the United States will also depend on the city of destination, for example, there is a big difference in prices between the East Coast (more expensive) and the more affordable West Coast, although in comparison with prices in Spain the prices are much higher.

The transit time from door to door is estimated to be between 3 and 4 weeks.

You decide the destination, we take care of the rest

Our network of professionals and collaborators reaches practically every corner of the United States. If you’re looking for a moving company in the United States, we do moves to Miami, Boston, Texas-Houston, New York, Washington and Chicago, but if you’re planning to move to the West Coast, we also do moves to California, San Francisco, San Diego and Seattle, among many other cities. And if you are planning the trip back home, we can take care of your move from the United States to Spain.

In Grupo Amygo we specialize in international removals with coverage on five continents, we are knowledgeable in customs management, international logistics, and we make routes by sea and air so you can reach your destination with the best service.

Leave the paperwork for your international move to the United States in our hands!

Customs formalities are one of the main obstacles when organising an international removal. If you don’t know the rules and tariffs that apply in the destination country, you run the risk of your belongings being held up at customs or you may have to assume additional costs that you hadn’t anticipated.

When moving to the USA, for example, personal items are exempt from taxes, but it is essential that all documents are in order, so you will have to fill out different applications, forms and declarations.

At Grupo Amygo we can help you avoid these headaches: we manage the necessary permits and formalities for departure and entry, as well as the export and import customs clearance.

How much space do you need for your international move to the United States?

In a move of this size, the first step is to take an inventory of each of the items you want to move. This way you will know exactly how much space you need and the estimated weight of the packages. We have full 20′ and 40′ 40’HC containers at your disposal, but if you don’t need so much space and you want to make a cheap move to the United States, our sea groupage service in lift vans containers will fit you like a glove.

We can also guarantee an urgent move to the United States. However, as this is an air freight service, its price is higher, so we recommend you trust in the experience of our professional packers, who will know how to make the most of every centimetre of space.
