The Shipping Process
The shipping process can be broken down into 5 steps:
Packing for your aliyah, or for any move is a BIG task – let us help. Here’s what Aliyah Lift Shipping can do for you:
Complete Household Packing Services
Custom Crating for Art and Valuables
If you are shipping a partial shipment then your goods would be packed/wrapped at your residence and returned to our warehouse for a later consolidation.
If you have a container shipment then Aliyah Lift Shipping’s packing crew will load your container saving you time and energy. (In some locations, you can save money by loading your own container.)
This is when your shipment crosses the ocean to Israel.
When your shipment arrives at the port in Israel, you will need to go to Ashdod or Haifa for customs clearance. (You don’t need to go to the port when your shipment’s being unloaded from the vessel (like in this video).)
There is a very, very small possibility your shipment will be inspected which will result in additional charges and time delays.
About a week after customs clearance your container/partial shipment will be delivered to your door. Most deliveries are made about one week after your shipment arrives at the destination port.
Once again, a team of industrious workers will unload your container or partial shipment – putting your boxes and furniture where you want and assembling three basic pieces of furniture.
Finally! You are ready to begin your life in your new home – Israel our homeland!
