It takes an incredible amount of coordination and skill to execute an international relocation. For most, it’s a daunting feat, but for Allied Van Lines and its over 500 agents, it’s just another day on the job. Because of the ability of companies like Nelson Markesbery Moving & Storage to perform comprehensive, well-coordinated global moves, Allied International has received the honor of being named the 2015 International Moving Company of the Year by the Forum of Expatriate Management.

Allied International Moving Company of the Year Award

Dedication to Communication

Once of the main reasons Allied took home this award is its emphasis on communicating with the customer every step of the way. Each agent is required to assign a move coordinator to each project to act as the primary point of contact and walk the customer through every step of the journey. This individual also helps with any necessary documentation for international moves and provides the client with educational resources about their new home land.

Quality Services

An international relocation is no walk in the park; it requires the upmost care and customization. For this type of job, each agent needs to carry containers designed for international shipping. Additionally, all employees need to be trained in advanced transportation and packing techniques for overseas and cross-border relocations. To put themselves ahead of the game, Allied also provides all agents with GPS tracking technology. Because of this, the movers can track shipments themselves and allow customers to do the same.


Most movers take weeks to complete an international move, but Allied agents aren’t most movers. In addition to providing the most thorough international relocation imaginable, they’ll also manage to do it quickly. In fact, Allied has staff on the ground in hundreds of various countries, giving them the manpower to work fast without sacrificing quality.
