When it comes to international moving, scheduling a free consultation is the first step you should take. At Hercules Moving Company, we understand that every move is different and our professional team is here to help make your relocation to Uganda as smooth as possible.
During the initial consultation, one of our experienced representatives will discuss your needs and requirements for the move with you in detail. We will gather information such as your timeline for relocating, budget, quantity of items being shipped and any special instructions regarding large or fragile items.
This information is critical in ensuring a successful move since it allows us to plan out each step of the relocation process and ensure that all necessary resources are available on time.
After the initial consultation, Hercules Moving Company provides customers with a modern, easy and fast way to get an estimate for their international move through our AI Estimating tool, Yembo.ai.
This technology reduces the time needed for the estimate and it automatically detects inventory and measures the volume of items through a simple video call. All inventory will be prepared meeting ISO 17451 standards providing customers with the highest quality service possible.
With this virtual survey customers can have peace of mind that their items are packed and measured correctly without having to be present in person – all with utmost safety in mind. We value staying updated about technology, so we always look for ways to optimize our customer experience.
With this modern AI virtual survey, our customers can save time and money while relocating overseas with utmost peace of mind knowing they are getting a professional international moving estimate.

Expert Packing for Moving to Uganda
It's the packing day already and you have booked your international move with us.
Most of the countries, including Uganda, do not allow Packed by Owner containers (PBO). If you fail to follow their rules and import items packed by owner, you might face long delays and extra charges.
We have years of experience in international moving and our team of expert packers will ensure the highest quality packing. We make sure to use only the best packing materials and techniques when preparing your items for their overseas journey.
Instead of common moving blankets, we use Branded Alligator Wrap and extra sturdy international moving boxes to prepare your belongings for their journey.
International packing has to be performed much better than local packing since your items will travel far away from home. During the packing process, we also prepare an inventory that meets all import and export requirements.
We pack your belongings in a way that ensures they will be safe during the overseas transport.
Customs Clearance When Moving to Uganda
When moving to Uganda, the packing process is complete and the shipment is loaded and shipped with a preferred method. Once the shipment arrives at the port in Uganda, it must go through a customs clearance process.
This process involves providing documentation and undergoing necessary procedures to ensure that all items are cleared for entry into the country.
At Hercules Moving Company, we have experienced professionals who are well-versed in navigating customs clearance processes. They understand how to comply with complex regulations and requirements for international shipping.
We provide personalized support throughout the entire customs clearance procedure, including assistance with completion of paperwork and addressing any questions or issues that may arise.
Our team is dedicated to making sure that our customers have a smooth transition when moving to Uganda. We help minimize delays and ensure that all items are delivered on time without any problems.
With our expertise in customs clearance, clients can be certain that their belongings will arrive safely at their new home in Uganda.
Delivery to Uganda
Once the items have cleared customs, a trusted agent in the destination country will handle their delivery. Delivery is sometimes known as destination service and is an optional service for individuals who have chosen door-to-door service.
If you prefer, you can opt to handle the delivery yourself. Debris removal is also included on the same day of the move, offering a free service to keep your new home spic and span after your international move.
Our delivery services also allow you to concentrate on settling into your new house without worrying about all the logistics involved in moving. We can even help stage furniture in the way you like it in your new home.
With Hercules Moving Company's destination services, we ensure that all your moving needs are taken care of so that you can focus on starting afresh in Uganda. Contact us today for a free quote and find out how we can make relocating to Uganda as easy as possible!
