Chiang Mai's Leading Moving Company

International Moves
chiang mai international removals

International moves from Thailand

We are very experienced in moving household goods abroad.

We have an export license registered in our company name so can ship your household goods to your new home.

We are members of a few international movers associations which give us access to reliable tried and tested contacts worldwide who can help with clearing goods at the port of entry and then onward trucking to your home. They will also unload and unwrap your items, place them in the right rooms and remove all packing material.

Get in touch with us and we will arrange a convenient time for us to come and see what needs moving.

Items requiring special permission for export from Thailand

Apart from the usual restricted items such as weapons, drugs and alcohol, there are some items which require special permission to export from Thailand, these are religious images and hard wood products.

Religious images are three dimensional images of deities or symbols from any religion be it Buddhist, Christian or Hindu for example – it also includes Khmer figures. As this is a mainly Buddhist country, it mostly concerns Buddha images. It is possible to obtain permission from the Fine Arts Department at the Chiang Mai Museum of full intact Buddha images, it takes about a month to process the documents, ideally you will need an invoice from the shop where you bought the piece and they must also have a license for selling religious images. Part images such as heads, hands, Buddha images missing feet or other parts can’t be shipped, this is strictly adhered to by customs at all ports in Thailand, all courier services and even the post office. Customs will hold your whole shipment and then there will be storage charges applied until permission is gained to access the port and further permission to open your container and remove and destroy the items in question. Please don’t try to hide images as all containers from Thailand are X rayed before being loaded on the boat.

Any hard wood furniture requires a hardwood license which is obtained from the shop where you purchased the item. If they are imported pieces you will need proof of import which we then present to customs when the shipment is being cleared at customs. If you show us the pieces we will be able to guide you on the best course of action. There are several hardwoods that are barred for export, any attempt will have serious consequences. The same especially applies to unfinished logs or planks of wood.

Other items to be wary of are animal based products, be it fur rugs, horns or other animal parts. Ivory is strictly illegal.

Beauty products or liquid items and food stuffs also require permission.

When we come to visit we can explain all of this in detail.

We will estimate the volume and work out the cheapest way to get your goods shipped to your new home. It may take a few days to get the quote from our counterparts in the destination country.

There are 2 ways to ship, as a part or a full container. For full containers the sea freight varies from month to month depending on season and fuel charge.

If you’re ok with the quote we will then arrange a day to come and pack your things and make up an invent of your goods.

If you like we can hold your goods in our storage warehouse for free for up to a month, after this there will be a small charge. This allows you time to find your new property if you haven’t already decided.

Shipping times vary but to give you an idea main ports in Europe, US or Canada take 1 month, Australia and India take 3 weeks.

We do provide insurance which costs 3.5% of the declared value of goods to be insured. For electrical goods there is an extra charge of 0.3% which covers damage to the internal electrics even if the item looks physically ok.

This insurance doesn’t cover Pirates but that is very rare.

If you have any questions just send us an email or give me a call.

Moving Into Chiang Mai From Abroad

Wherever you are coming from we can arrange your move from door to door using our network of accredited international movers.

First we will have our team come and do a survey and work out the cheapest way to ship your goods.

We will then use the invent to see what import tax you need to pay if any and give you a full door to door quote. The only thing we can’t quote for is if customs do a random inspection which also might incur storage charges. This is very rare though.

We can provide a full clearing process into Thailand and delivery to your new home in Chiang Mai or whichever city you are moving to or store your goods until you are ready.

We can provide full insurance on your goods, see above.

I had to move a household from one house to another within Chiang Mai. About half of my household goods were already packed as a result of a previous move (they were not unpacked yet). The other half... was in use and still needed to be packed before it could be moved.Chiang Mai Removals came for an assessment of what needs to be moved, and gave me a quote at the end of their visit.At the moving day they came with a team of 7 guys and packed and moved everything very efficiently and carefully. All the packing material needed were provided by Chiang Mai Removals.The unloading at destination was also very smooth and professional. The team was very helpful with unpacking and bringing the goods to their respective place in the house.Chiang Mai Removals gave excellent service at a reasonable price. Very fast and efficient. Also very important, there was no damage at all during the moving. I am also very impressed with their prompt time-keeping.I therefore highly recommend Chiang Mai Removals.read more

I had to move a household from Chiang Mai to Ubon R. They guys from Chiang Mai Removals came for a first assessment and gave me a fair quote. Before the moving they provided me with tons of boxes,... tape and bubble plastic. At the moving day they came with a team of 6 guys and moved everything very efficiently. The unloading in Ubon was also very smooth and professional. We had 3 locations to unload, everything was packed and in order to our likings. There was no damage during the moving and we felt supported during the whole process.. I highly recommend Chiang Mai Removals.read more

In 50 years of life, having moved many times through numerous states within the USA and internationally… I have never had a better experience with a moving company than I did with ChiangMai Removals.... Tae is an extremely professional manager and his crew did excellent work. Very timely, very communicative, very careful, and very personable. They are not the least expensive option but, in my opinion, worth every baht.read more

TL;DR This is the second time I've used Chiang Mai Removals (1st was a couple of years ago). The service was as impeccable as the first time. 100% recommended. Do yourself a favor and hire... them.=========================Summary=========================Moving to a new place can be very stressing, but thanks to Chiang Mai Removals it was a breeze. Here's some highlights that I really appreciate:- Very responsive and polite English-speaking support.- Punctual: Can't tell you how many times I've scheduled appointments just to be left waiting around with no notice as if you had nothing else to do, so it's a quality I extremely appreciate.- Professional: Packing and handling of delicate furniture was smooth.- Hassle-Free: They took care of disassembling, packing and reassemble at the new location. Really convenient. They didn't need to, but they even offered to disassemble a bed in the new location that I would have need to move out anyway, which was a great plus.- After you are settled in, they will send someone to pick up empty cardboard boxes, which is great.- Price is very reasonable for everything that is provided. If you have been here a while you know you could probably find something "cheaper", but do you really want to risk it for the difference? You get what you pay for. They don't have a 4.9 rating for nothing.All in all, if peace of mind and a hassle-free move is what you are looking for, contact them and they will take care of everything.read more

This was an absolutely flawless move. This was the only company recommended to me in a Facebook group for foreigners with very high praises and they were all right! The company responded quickly to... my inquiry via Facebook messenger and was able to schedule an appointment on the date I wanted. Everything was packed well and very quickly. They also provide storage services starting at 250baht/mo. During the move they dismantled a spare bed frame and took it back with them to be placed into storage. They will also assemble furniture for you. This company does it all! Thank you for a perfect move!read more
