What Our Customers Say About Us
Thanks Rafael, That is great news, Stuart & I will sign, scan & sent the paperwork through tonight. As I said on the phone yesterday, I really appreciate your follow up & service with our move. It was a major contributor in the decision to go with Southern Winds. Sent from my iphone Regards,
In December of last year we moved from San Diego to Perth Australia using Southern Winds. The cost was roughly $6500 for a 20ft container. It took about four weeks for the shipment to arrive and clear customs. We were very pleased with promptness, professionalism and price of the Southern Winds company.
I had a fantastic experience with Southern Winds for our move from Sacramento, CA to Canberra, Australia. We shipped a 20′ container and much of it was filled with my husband’s construction tools. Michael Gilbert at Southern Winds was GREAT, as was George Cooper, our contact at Aus Van Lines here. Our container was delivered yesterday and everything is fine! The communication we received from everyone was very good, and we had no problems with the customs/quarantine end of things. (We had to have 2 items steam cleaned, but all of this was clearly explained to us). Our price was good too. We are very happy we chose Southern Winds!!
Hi Ed, Well, we finally closed on the house and iMove delivered our 295 packages on Friday. We have now unwrapped everything (and have a metric “boat”load of brown paper to recycle!) and unpacked many of the boxes, including as far as we can tell, all of the fragile items. Guess what? ZERO damage, ZERO loss. Absolutely incredible. We’re totally blown away. Everything was really meticulously and intelligently packed and clearly was handled carefully in transit (includes iMove’s warehousing for 5 months). I just wanted to send this to say a huge thank you, and I’ll send you a more formal letter of appreciation as soon as we get over the next week or so which will involve re-flooring the…
It is a pleasure to write and thank you for the excellent service you have provided my husband and I in our recent packing and moving experience to Japan. While there were a number of delivery services that we considered, we were impressed from the beginning by your friendliness and prompt attention to our concerns.
When we got quotes for our move . . . Stevens was the highest. We got quotes from Rainier and Southern Winds. Southern Winds was the least expensive but also had the best customer service from the sales office by a long shot. Rainier’s local agent was very good, I have to say, and if we had gotten more responsive treatment from the sales office, I might have gone with them. I don’t think price alone is a reason to choose one company over the other, but for us the cheapest also offered the best customer service and we felt comfortable with the origin and destination agents. In the end Southern Winds did a great job for us.
Hi We are moving from SF Bay area to Izmir, Turkey… We had never done this before, and needless to say, were worried about shipping. I contacted many many companies, and received many quotes. Some were very low (beware!) and some were very high, and then I did some research and came to this excellent website! I contacted Southern Winds, specifically Michael Gilbert, and he gave us a middle of the road quote. Going on the good reviews from this site, I decided to trust them and gave them the deal. Mr. Gilbert was very courteous, very helpful with all the repeated questions by me, then again with my husband, and never got frustrated. He did not send anyone, however, to see the shipment …
Michele, hi Kristine. Just to let you know that my crate arrived safely last week…. Thank you so much for a very successful move. Everything was handled so professionally and we are thrilled with it. 🙂
We used Southern Winds International to move about 2000 lbs of goods from Seattle to Melbourne, Australia and everything went very smoothly and all of our goods arrived with no damage to anything. We highly recommend this company. Michael Gilbert was our Southern Winds International contact and was very responsive to all my questions both prior to and after the packing up of our goods. The local agent in Seattle (Tacoma) was Lincoln Moving and Storage and in Australia it was Transglobal Shipping and Storage. Both local agents also provided excellent service. In addition to Southern Winds, we obtained quotes from Rainier and Stevens. Rainier gave us a quote for shipment of 10,000 lbs of…
