Yembo.ai can detect inventory and measure the volume of items via a simple video call, while at the same time all inventory is prepared in accordance with ISO 17451 standards.

Expert Packing for Moving to Ethiopia

Today is the packing day for your international move to Ethiopia. Sadly, many countries, including Ethiopia, do not allow 'Packed by Owner' (PBO) containers. If you are caught using PBO, there may be long delays and extra charges.

At Hercules Moving Company, we have years of experience in international packing and moving. We have a team of expert packers who use the best packing materials and techniques available in the market.

Instead of traditional moving blankets, we use branded Alligator Wrap along with extra-sturdy international moving boxes. International packing has to be performed much better than local packing – that's why we make sure that every item is properly packed and secured before it begins its journey overseas.

We will also prepare the inventory list which meets all import and export requirements before we begin the packing process. You can trust us to pack your items in a way that they remain safe during their overseas transport!

Customs Clearance When Moving to Ethiopia

After our expert packing is completed, the shipment is carefully loaded and shipped to Ethiopia with a preferred method. Once it reaches the port of Ethiopia, it will go through customs clearance process.

This process requires completing specific documentation and following procedures to make sure that the items are allowed entry into the destination country. Our team of experienced professionals are well-equipped to handle such customs clearance process easily and help you navigate complex regulations and requirements of different countries.

At Hercules Moving Company, we understand that such procedures can be overwhelming for individuals relocating to new countries, which is why we are committed to offering personalized support throughout this entire process.

We prioritize our clients’ satisfaction and provide assistance with completing paperwork as well as address any concerns or questions related to customs clearance in Ethiopia.

Our dedicated team can ensure a smooth transition for clients when moving internationally by helping to minimize delays and ensuring that items make it on time without any issues.

Delivery to Ethiopia

When it comes to delivering your items overseas, you can trust that the process will be handled by a trusted agent in the destination country. Delivery, also referred to as destination service, is an optional service if you have selected door-to-door service.

If you prefer, you can opt to handle delivery yourself. Debris removal is included in the service if it is on the same moving day, ensuring that your new home stays clean and tidy after the move.

Our delivery services provide extra peace of mind so you can focus on settling into your new home without worrying about the logistics of moving. Furthermore, our movers can even help to stage your furniture how you like in a new home.

For a stress-free relocation experience, contact us for a free quote today. We understand that moving internationally can be a daunting task, but with our expertise and knowledge of Ethiopia's customs clearance regulations, we are ready to make this move one of the best experiences of your life!

What Clients say About Us

I am highly impressed by the moving company Hercules! A team of 3 men brought a piano up from the basement of my house, up 9 steps, then through a tight corner and up 3 more steps. The moment they stepped in my house, I noticed their professionalism. From preparation and organization to floor/stairs protection, team work and moving techniques, it was excellent. Not a scratch! I have very high standards, I'm actually fussy and not easily impressed, but today I was delighted to see exceptional work. I highly recommend Hercules Markham movers for any moving services!


The Hercules team was great! The were very helpful and were very careful when they were in my house when moving the piano into place. They even fixed a part on the piano that had been broken for ages. I would highly recommend them to move anything you need moved. Thanks Hercules!!

Matt Singer

I used Hercules Moving to move a piano from my basement to a purchaser. They were very professional, packaged the piano carefully, put down mats on flooring and removed it very efficiently. I'd recommend these guys for any moving needs for sure!!

P. Bederski

My first phase of the move (Niagara Falls storage to Hercules storage) was extremely satisfactory. The four man crew worked in unison to complete the task with utmost care of my belongings. I will write my final review when my items are delivered to Moncton. So far, I am extremely satisfied with this company's services.

Hercules rescued my move when another Toronto movers cancelled on me days before the big day. They were professional and knew exactly how to protect all of my belongings during the move in terrible rain.

Hands down the best movers in Toronto!I used Hercules moving services to move my 4 bedrooms house.They was very carefully and nice guys, they wrap in blankets all my furniture and made it safe for moving.Thank you, Igor and his team.

Anastasiya Mamayeva

These guys are amazing. They are fast and reliable. They are reasonably priced compared to other big companies. They moved 3br appt on a very short notice with no extra charge. All my furniture arrived in the same condition as before the move. I would definitely recommend them!

Very professional movers. They did a fantastic job helping us move into our home. Thank you very much for the terrific customer service. Highly recommend and will use them again.

I am a small business owner and when there is a problem to carry heavy items and move large stuff, I think Hercules! Owners have outstanding organizational skills and manage time and resources very well. I am sharing this wonderful experience as a matter of gratitude and respect.Thank you!

Donald Quan

Used Hercules for the first time for the move of my very expensive and rare C.Bechstein grand - I was so pleased with their service an demeanour at the baby coddling care they used in handling my pride and joy that I will be using them for all of my piano moves from here on. I highly recommend these Guelph movers. Donald Quan - award winning film composer.

The team was very efficient and professional. I would high recommend them for all of your moving needs! :)

Had a piano moved from one household to another. They took great care and did an amazing job with packing it up and delivery. I would recommend this company to anyone looking.

Music is my life. And this awesome Hercules guys smoothly moved my "old but gold" upright piano in an apartment on 10th floor! When I will open my studio I will doubtless hire them to move all my equipment and musical instruments. Thank You!
