U-Haul Military Moving Frequently Asked Questions

  • What international shipping services do you offer?
    Our U-Box containers ships to almost any destination in the world. We offer delivery to the destination port or directly to your door at your international destination (subject to availability).
  • How does the international shipment work?
    Experience the convenience and benefits of our domestic U-Box services before your U-Box container is shipped internationally, simply make sure to keep a detailed inventory of all items packed. After your U-Box container is loaded and back at the origin U-Haul location, we will ensure all documentation is in order before we ship. If you elect to door delivery services at destination, we will assist you with customs documentation, clearance, and delivery to your door in your destination country.
  • Does U-Haul assist with clearing customs?
    If you elect international shipping services to port, you will be responsible for sourcing your own customs agent in the destination country. If you elect international shipping services to door, our preferred partner will help you complete all customs documentation before your U-Box container is shipped and assist you in completing the clearance process at destination.
  • What documentation do I need to ship internationally?
    Each destination has unique proof of residency / visa or citizenship and supporting documentation requirements to ship household goods into the country and qualify for tax-free import of household goods. If you elect international to door shipping services, our preferred customs clearance agent in the destination country will assist you with the proper documentation.
  • Do I have to be present in the destination country to ship by U-Box container there?
    Yes, you need to be present at destination or have an existing travel itinerary to the destination country to initiate the shipment. Need to pack your items before? Store your packed U-Box container at our U-Haul location until you are ready to ship.
  • Can I store my U-Box container(s) in the destination country?
    We have a large network of partners across the world that can accommodate storage in most destination countries. Please inquire with an international shipping team member for custom rates and options to be included in your shipping quote.
