International Movers to South Korea

Moving overseas can be a big decision, especially when it comes to international movers to South Korea. At Hercules Moving Company, we understand the magnitude of the task at hand and are here to help those who are making this life-changing decision.

Located in East Asia, South Korea is bordered by China and Japan. It is renowned for its vibrant capital city of Seoul which is home to numerous cultural attractions including ancient palaces and temples. Other popular cities for expats include Busan, Daegu and Gwangju which offer a range of activities from sightseeing to shopping. Major landmarks in the country include Gyeongbokgung Palace, Bukhansan National Park and N Seoul Tower - all must-see destinations for visitors.

South Korea is also well known for its delicious cuisine such as kimchi (traditional pickled vegetables) and bulgogi (marinated beef).

At Hercules Moving Company we provide services that make relocating overseas less daunting – from packing up your belongings safely to transporting them securely across borders – so that you can start your new life in South Korea with ease! Contact us today if you need assistance with international movers to South Korea!

Initial Consultation

Scheduling a free consultation with Hercules Moving Services for an international move to South Korea is the first step in ensuring a successful relocation.

Our experienced and knowledgeable staff will discuss your individual needs and requirements, so that we can provide you with an accurate estimate of the cost of your move.

During this consultation, we will collect essential information such as the timeline for your relocation, the budget available for it, and how much to be shipped.

This information is vital to ensuring that our team can provide you with a smooth moving experience without any unexpected surprises or delays.

After the initial consultation with our expert international movers, we understand your needs and requirements in order to provide you with an accurate estimate for your move. This is where our AI Estimating tool, Yembo.ai comes in.

Yembo.ai reduces the time needed for a moving estimate by automatically detecting inventory and measuring volume of items via a simple video call - all while meeting ISO 17451 standards.

This is a modern, easy and fast way to get an estimate and we stay updated with technology so you get the best services available.

Our customers enjoy the convenience of the virtual survey process that reduces not just the time needed but also clarifies any confusion that may arise from traditional methods of surveying.

Expert Packing for Moving to South Korea

Moving day is here and you have chosen the Hercules Moving Company to help you relocate to South Korea. Most countries do not allow Packed by Owner containers, so if any of your items are PBO and contravene local laws, it could lead to delays and extra charges.

At Hercules we have years of experience in international moving, and our team of expert packers use the best packing materials and techniques available. Instead of traditional moving blankets, we equip all our overseas shipments with Branded Alligator Wrap for extra protection.

Plus we only use the sturdiest international moving boxes to store your items securely during transportation.

International packing requires a higher level of skill than regular domestic packing, so we take extra care when preparing your items. We will also generate an inventory that meets all import and export requirements, ensuring a smooth transition through customs.

Our packing services guarantee that your items will be well protected during their overseas journey - giving you peace of mind during the relocation process.

Customs Clearance When Moving to South Korea

Once all the expert packing has been completed and the shipment is ready to go, the shipment is then loaded and shipped to South Korea. Choosing the right option for transportation can make a big difference in timing and cost.

When the shipment arrives at a port in South Korea, it is then subject to customs clearance. This process involves submitting documentation, paying fees, and ensuring that all items are cleared for entry into the destination country.

At Hercules Moving Company, we have extensive experience when it comes to customs clearance procedures for international moves to South Korea. We understand how complex regulations and requirements can be when entering other countries and we have highly trained professionals who are ready to handle any situation that arises during the process.

We are committed to providing personalized support for our clients during their customs clearance in South Korea, helping them with paperwork completion and addressing any questions or concerns along the way.

Our services are designed to make this process as smooth as possible, minimizing delays and ensuring that items arrive on time without any issues.

You can rest assured that we will do everything possible to ensure a seamless transition from one country to another.

Delivery to South Korea

Once your items have cleared customs, they will be delivered to your new home overseas. This process is handled by a trusted agent in the destination country.

Delivery, also referred to as destination service, is an optional service that you can choose if you have selected door-to-door service. You may also opt to handle delivery yourself if you prefer.

Debris removal is included in the service if it is scheduled on the same moving day – a great bonus and a free service that helps keep your new home clean and tidy after the move.

Our delivery services even include helping you to stage the furniture how you like in your new home. This ensures that you can focus on settling into your new home without worrying about the logistics of moving.

What Clients say About Us

I want to express my sincere gratitude for the organization of the relocation of our office in Ottawa. Hercules office movers were very polite, neat and responsible. Packing, loading and unloading were logically adjusted, so I could relax and completely trust the process. Special thanks for the ease of communication: I was nervous, and there were problems with the concierge and the use of freight elevators, but these guys saved my day and behaved tactfully as real professionals. I can recommend this company to anyone who cares about quality of office relocation.

I hired this company about month ago to move me into new house. 3 athletic looking guys arrived on-time and did a very good job. Whatever I did not finish packing -they did it for me. Then loaded all my staff into big truck and moved into new house. They were working nonstop. Everything was done very accurately within promised time. Very responsible and polite guys. If happens to move again I certainly will hire them again and of course will recommend this company to my friends. Greater job guys. Thanks a lot.


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!!

Donald Quan

I used Hercules for a non-piano move for the first time from their Storage Toronto. I expected only the best service from them as I’ve experienced how they treat Concert pianos and they delivered 100%. The time and cost they quoted was exactly what it took. They really know how to quote their services. No surprises....so rare in a moving company. They came over-prepared with blankets, stair coverings, wrappings, mega tape. They were not about to let anything happen to my valuable stuff. Best movers I’ve ever used.....they almost take moving to an art form.


I cannot even begin to describe how dedicated and experienced these movers are... They were life-savers on my moving day and truly believe in the highest level of performance.

Really patient and dedicated guys! They treated all of our furniture and belongings with the utmost care while still being incredibly efficient. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!

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.

Our piano was recently moved for the first time after having been in our house for 30 years. I was very impressed with the movers' professionalism, their friendliness and for being patient in their handling of the piano and its delivery to Mississauga. They took their time to use extra padding on this big instrument and also used extra floor covering so as not to scratch the hardwood flooring.I would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone!

Stephanie Rice

Hercules Guelph movers excelled in their customer service even calling me shortly after the crew finished to inquire how the move went. I would recommend this company to anyone wanting a reliable moving company with reasonable rates and amazing service. I'm a very satisfied customer.

Hercules movers moved our [very heavy & expensive] upright piano from Toronto to Stratford. These two brothers exercised thoroughness and care with the move. The brothers were very personable and professional. The piano was well wrapped, stairs were covered in blankets and our wood floor received no new grooves or scratches. Highly recommended. Choose The best from Moving companies Toronto.

Hercules Piano Moving has picked up my piano which I had donated. They were very professional, covering and sealing the piano. Making note not to damage my flooring and returning all furnishings back into their original places. I would recommend this company, reliable, quick and efficient.

The movers showed up on time and ready to work, they were very efficient and professional. Would highly recommend to anyone.

If you still in doubt of what piano movers in Toronto to choose - hope you read my review :) Hercules Movers did an excellent job of relocating a grand piano from a music school to my house and additionally advised me a professional piano tuner. Extra care service, friendly and skilled movers, which were extremely accurate and protected the piano as well as floors, walls and stairs.

Thank you so much Hercules! I contacted them on a Friday, and Monday 8 guys showed up and put together everything I had in one day! This is not our first time using Hercules Moving, it's actually our third. They are kind, understanding and professional. Most importantly, they get the job done in an efficient manner. Thanks again from this repeat customer!

Have used Hercules Moving for 2 work related circumstances. Extremely professional, cautious and timely. I would have no hesitation to recommend this company to others. They are my go to company from now on.
