Because of Jewish lifestyles most families live near, and are serviced by, our very experienced five major consolidation centers  while everybody else is taken care of by our awesome local agent network.  Both are explained below.

Local Agent Network

Local Agent Network

In cities throughout the United States and Canada, Aliyah Lift Shipping maintains an local agent network with leading moving companies (ie, Atlas, Bekins, etc.) experienced in overseas shipping.  Their crews are experienced and their standards are high – and that makes for happy customers.

Partial shipments from these locations are loaded into lift van(s) crates and/or smaller crates (if available), and shipped overseas for delivery.

Lift vans are common storage and shipping crates used throughout the world, and are the safest way to ship household goods.  Lift vans have an approximate gross volume of 200 cubic feet with about 190 cubic feet of packing space.

The following applies to shipments handled by our local agent network:

      • Shipping charges for a partial shipment are based on 3 factors (because there are 3 different industries involved and 3 different billing methods).
            1. Packing/Loading/Crating is based on weight.
            1. Transportation from the local agent’s warehouse to a major consolidation center is based on weight & volume.
            1. Shipping overseas and delivery is based on volume.
      • Storage charges begin once the shipment is received at the local agent’s warehouse.
      • Your shipment will be handled and delivered by a trustworthy Israeli company.
      • The people you interact with will be polite, kindly and fluent in English.
