First this subcontracted mover, GLOBAL INTERNATIONAL, tried to scam me and charge thousands more for unnecessary extras even after I told them I did not need or want the extras. Then they began harassing me daily and making threats. When our shipment arrived to them for delivery, they left everything in the elements for a week and everything was so soaked that the truck driver refused to reload until the floor of his truck was protected. Some Furniture was badly water damaged, Heirloom furniture was nearly destroyed, broken legs off furniture. Boxes so soaked that they were literally falling apart & contents falling out. There were 43 of 400 boxes & items missing! That's more than 10%, We have moved several times with US ARMY, even overseas and never experienced anything like the destruction these people caused. These are strictly my opinion and my experience on this particular move.
Pros and cons
US half of movers who packed were excellent
International movers set out to destroy our belongings out of spite
we had no choice over the choice of international mover who was subcontracted.
Moved from Union (United States) to Alcantarilha (Portugal).
