International Movers to Uganda

Uganda is an East African country located on the shores of Lake Victoria in the Great Lakes region. It is bordered by Kenya to the east, South Sudan to the north, Tanzania and Rwanda to its south, and Democratic Republic of Congo on its western border. The capital city of Uganda is Kampala; other popular cities for expats include Jinja in central Uganda and Fort Portal in western Uganda. Major cities are Masaka, Mubende and Gulu.

The country is well known for its top landmarks such as Murchison Falls National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Ruwenzori Mountains National Park and Kibale Forest National Park. With our experienced international movers at Hercules Moving Company you can enjoy making this new beginning with ease! We offer comprehensive services tailored specifically for individuals who are relocating overseas – so let us take care of your next move!

The International Move Process to Uganda

We are proud to offer specialized international moving services to Uganda. Our team of experienced professionals have a wealth of knowledge and expertise when it comes to relocating individuals and families to the beautiful country of Uganda.

From helping you with the visa process, packing your belongings safely and securely, completing customs documentation, we can assist with every step of your move. Our mission is to make sure that your transition is as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Initial Consultation

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.

Virtual Survey

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!

What Clients say About Us

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!!

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.

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!

The guys over at Hercules Moving Company came highly recommended and they did not disappoint!Their meticulous attention to detail in wrapping every piece of furniture did not come at the cost of time, they were still highly efficient and very hard working. Managment were very friendly and made the whole moving experience stress free.The next time I move I will definitely be choosing Hercules Moving Company and so should you!!

Gentle Giant

We initially hire Hercules to move our piano, but after our bad experience with our previous mover we hire them for our 2nd move with our entire household content. They were efficient, helpful and most importantly stronger than over mover. They blanketed old furniture and disassembled and reassembled the furniture back in place. They were accommodating and had stair mats and cover on the floor so that we didn't have to do major clean up after the move. We really appreciated their patience in positioning our grand piano into the exact angle we needed in the room. I will recommend them. My elderly mother also hired them and they took care of her move as well. She really appreciated the hassle free experience.

Hercules is by far the most efficient, customer friendly and experienced movers I have dealt with. They took such good care of furniture and personal belongings and made a stressful move seem effortless. I would not hesitate to use these Ottawa movers again. For a five star, hassle free service, with great care and attention, I would recommend Hercules.

The movers arrived on time and impressed me with their friendly and polite demeanour. They completed the move professionally, taking care to pack and protect each of the items to be moved.I was very pleased with the job that was done. I would heartily recommend them.


I had to move my entire food operation in a day. With Edmonton movers quoted me quickly and showed up on site 2 days later ready to move. I was worried about all my expensive and sensitive machinery but they pulled it off safely and without issue. Very reasonably priced and highly recommended. Great company.

It was great to work with Hercules moving company. They arrived on time, had a team of very competent and friendly guys who treated our possessions with respect, including our grand piano. They were quick in disassembling and wrapping our furniture and seemed to have a lot of experience. They worked hard and kept us within the budget. I highly recommend them to everyone.

Homeowner Toronto

Outstanding small moves service. The company exceeded my high expectations! The moving crew members were friendly, efficient, proficient and caring, and worked as a cohesive team.

It was a last minute request and I was accommodated with prompt response, Excellent service.

Stephanie Thorbahn Myles

Huge shoutout to the 4 men that moved our family this week. After working a long night before on another move these guys came and never stopped. Everything that was not in boxes they wrapped in furniture pads, plastic wrap and packing tape. They later pads all over our new hardwood floors and put all the furniture back together. Great pricing. Thank you Hercules!

Good job. Guys were very pleasant and fast. Everything was clear, no hidden fees. They met all my request.

Private Customer

Hercules is by far the most efficient, customer friendly and experienced Edmonton movers I have dealt with. They took such good care of furniture and personal belongings and made a stressful move seem effortless. I would not hesitate to use them again. For a five star, hassle free service, with great care and attention, I would recommend Hercules.

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.
