I used Blue Horizon to move to Indonesia earlier this year. This was my experience: I put my info on a site which sends it to a bunch of companies. I received emails from 7 different ones and phone calls from 3. I spent about 20 minutes on the phone with Blue Horizon going over the whole process. The guy was very detailed and explained all that was required for me to be able to clear customs hassle free. That’s what set this company apart from the others who focused mainly on the price and couldn’t really confidently and readily answer specific questions as to my particular situation. There are very specific guidelines for foreigners moving to Jakarta. KITAS is needed before arriving. I shipped a 20’ container which came to my door. Three movers came to pack. I was told the day before to be ready by 8am, they didn’t get there until 8:45. Packing took fairly long but they were polite and didn’t really seem to mind my wife changing her mind a thousand times as to what’s going and what’s staying. In the end the container was totally full. Price: $7,695 and that included delivery in Jakarta and packing in GA. This was 2nd most expensive of the 7 I got. Also, I was given a choice as far as paying for additional fees that would apply in Indonesia in advance or when the container gets there. It was nice knowing I would have to pay more before I picked to go with a particular company. Apparently there are a bunch of costs that are usually not included so be sure to read all estimates carefully and ASK! Service: it was mostly via email after the initial call but that was actually better because I prefer to have things in writing in case something goes wrong down the line. I was getting updates throughout and any questions I had were answered promptly. Shipping took ~6 weeks pretty much as long as was listed on the contract. When the container got here, sure enough there were charges at the port. I had to shell out another $600 bucks but I was ready for it. When everything was said and done, a box of glassware was a bit crushed and a few glasses didn’t survive the voyage. I’m happy with how everything turned out.

My move to London from Baltimore with Blue Horizon Shipping Inc took place on June 23rd 2012; my items were picked up stored for 45 days for no charge and delivered yesterday 9/5/2012. The crew that came over to pack my items was very polite and professional they only warped my furniture and pre-packed all my boxes myself, the same guy that did the onsite survey was the foreman so he already knew what was going that was staying and was fully informed about my needs, which was great. The communication with Eduardo in Blue Horizon Shipping Inc was also very good, I receive the invoice 3 days after the pickup and it was $5,300.00 v. the quote I got which was $5,900.00 since i have decided to leave my sofa behind, that made me feel really good about the service since you always hear horrible stories of people getting one quote and end up paying a lot more than that. When I receive my items yesterday everything was in great shape, nothing was stolen or broken and overall i was very happy. I do recommend using Blue Horizon Shipping Inc to anyone, they are great company, and Michael Harrison who was the sales person I dealt with was very helpful and professional as well.
Used Blue for my move to Hamburg. The quote I got was a fixed price for a 20’ container, total $5,645 and included all port charges. I packed the boxes and they wrapped my furniture and loaded everything. Movers in the States worked pretty quickly and were done by 4. Before the container got to Bremerhaven I got emails telling me the container number and when it would hit customs. The clearance and hauling of the container to my house was done by a different company here, not Blue. Despite that, communication between the two was seamless and Euro agent was easy to deal with. Overall move was uneventful so I really have nothing to complain about. If I was to give advice, I’d say read the bids you’re getting carefully and check to make sure whatever company you choose is licensed with the Federal Maritime Commission and check the license number on http://www.fmc.gov/
Overall good experience. I moved from Australia back home to Miami. I was given their information by a cousin who used them here. My move was generally small and I packed everything myself. The contract I signed was with Blue Horizon but the boxes were actually picked up by another company in Australia. Shipping took quite long, a little over 2 months but that’s what I expected anyway. One thing I would recommend to anyone making a similar move is to double and triple check the size of the move. To their credit, Blue was very clear that the estimate and price was based on a certain size and might be more in the end if I had more stuff which I didn’t so there were no surprises in the end cost wise. Once the boxes got to my house the delivery people checked the inventory to make sure all boxes were there. They were nice and worked around my schedule to deliver.
My name is Reynaldo Quinones and I was refered to LTA Logistics by a friend. I purchased 6 machines at the Ritchie Brothers auction in Davenport, FL this past August 2011. I had already gotten a few quotes from different trucking companies and brokers at the auction. I went ahead and gave my loads to a trucking company and after a few days they had only transported one machine. This was unacceptable that's when I remember I had received a quote from LTA Logistics. I called them and they still honor the rates they had issued to me a few days back. I ask them how soon they can pick up my machine and they said that they will try to get them out of the auction within 36 hours. To my surprise all 5 remaining machines were pick up the next day. LTA Logistics got me out of a bind and for that I'm grateful to LTA.

I moved with BHS from Miami to Paris, the pickup was on 11/10 and I just got my shipment today 12/26 I was little disappointed since I was hopping to have my shipment before he holidays. The movers that came over to my house were great, they packed everything very well, did a great job protecting all my items, everything arrived in perfect condition, the agent here in France was indeed very professional and helpful as well and expedite the process through customs. Overall I was very happy I got a flat rate for 20' container from Dan Cohen and that exactly how much I paid, no surprises no hassle
