This choice is essential to ensure a successful and seamless move.
In-Depth Research and Evaluation: The moving company at the origin conducts thorough research and detailed evaluation of potential partners at the destination point. Several key factors are taken into consideration during this process:
Reputation: The potential partner's reputation and track record in the international moving industry are investigated. References and testimonials from other companies that have worked with them are gathered.
Experience: The partner's experience in handling international moves is assessed, including the variety of destinations served and the complexity of previous moves.
Licenses and Accreditations: A verification is performed to ensure that the partner holds the necessary licenses and accreditations to operate legally in the destination country and complies with local regulations.

Compliance with Local Regulations: Assurance that the partner complies with all local customs and regulations in the destination country, is crucial to avoid delays and legal issues.
The Establishment of a Formal Agreement: Once a suitable partner at the destination point has been identified, a formal collaboration agreement is put in place. This agreement outlines the terms and conditions of the collaboration between both companies and addresses various critical aspects:
Responsibilities: The agreement specifies the responsibilities of each party in the moving process, from cargo reception to final delivery to the customer at the destination.
Communication: Clear and efficient communication channels are established between the two companies to coordinate the move and resolve any issues that may arise.

Conflict Resolution: Procedures for conflict resolution that may arise during the collaboration are established, with the aim of maintaining a harmonious working relationship.
The selection and collaboration of a reliable partner at the destination point is fundamental to ensure the safe and efficient delivery of the customer's goods to their new location.
