Dear George,

“I want to thank you for the smooth shipment of my personal belongings from California to France. Your company’s professionalism left me very satisfied.”

I just wanted to let you know that I used Southern Winds International to move from NYC to Manchester, UK based on your site, and they were fantastic!

Not only was the crew really nice, but so were the ‘office’ people in California, responding to email within the hour.

My belongings were picked up, and delivered without a hitch and everything arrived in the condition they left the US.

All in all, I really recommend them for all of your moving needs. They also have the most competitive prices of the market (I’ve looked!).


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.


After a long search for the right moving company I decided to use Southern Winds International. My inquiry to this Company was promptly responded by Donovan. I was explicitly informed about prices and time of delivery. The price compared to other movers was competitive. Donovan was patiently helpful with all questions about custom and other forms. The US-mover picked up our 48 boxes on time.

The English mover informed us about the arrival of the boxes and when they would be forwarded to Portugal. Whenever we had an additional question, we could turn to Donovan and were informed promptly. The boxes were delivered to our house in Portugal exactly on time.

Each one of the 48 boxes looked just like we had seen them 3 months ago. Nothing was broken or damaged, nothing missing, just perfect. It was a pleasure to work with such competent and thorough companies and I would recommend Southern Winds International highly to everybody who has to move.

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!!

Dear Ed,
We wanted to “close the loop” with you on our recent relocation from CA to Maui. After all the horror stories we heard and read about sleazy moving companies and scams and price gauging, and broken or lost items, etc, we are so pleased to report that our move went off beautifully. We had a terrific crew of movers at both ends – Excel Moving in CA and then Royal Hawaiian here in Maui.

Everyone was friendly, efficient, helpful, pleasant, respectful of our “stuff” and all around fabulous. We are so glad we found you folks and that you have reliable vendors under your wing. Plus, your patience with us and our bzillion questions along the way helped tremendously.

We really wanted to thank you for making this stressful, but exciting, time as smooth as it was.
