Searching the Internet for International Moving Companies


If you’re getting ready to plan your international move, you will no doubt perform an internet search to identify suitable international moving companies to provide you with a quotation for service. Non-verbatim searches will have huge results that will take a lifetime to read through. On the other hand, a verbatim search should result with more refined information.

1. Come up with a strategy for searching for international moving rates

Before you type one search string into your patiently waiting search engine, take a few moments to consider what it is you really want to know. If you’re like most consumers, you probably want to know how much it will cost to move internationally from somewhere to someplace.

Let’s pretend you want to move to Spain. If understanding the costs of moving is your goal, a good search string would be asking the question what are the international moving rates to Spain?” In the search window, type in international moving rates to Spain?


Here are some search examples and results for Google and Bing:

Online international moving and shipping rates to Germany Google

International moving and shipping rates to Netherlands Google

Online international moving and shipping rates to Germany Bing

International moving and shipping rates to Italy Bing


2. Avoid the rabbit hole of free international moving quotes

There is a very good chance that you’ll see many results for free international moving quotes along your searching. Or what is called a sales lead aggregator that promises moving quotes in 60 seconds. This of course seems interesting but not really what you’re searching for when searching for rates. Keep focused on your goal of finding an international moving rate to Spain or wherever you plan to move internationally.

Just a thought, does anyone pay for an international moving quotation? Everyone I have asked over years laughs me and the question, saying pretty much the same thing… All quotations are free always.
