Just about any of the big-name companies should be good - to get the best price, have 3 or more of them give you a quote, then you can choose which one is cheapest.

We recently made a move using Allied Pickfords (http://www.alliedpickfords.co.id) and I was amazed at the level of personal service provided. You can contact them via the link.

Cheapest quote is not always best. They will need to quote the estimated volume of your goods to be moved. Price is per cubic metre and based on a sliding scale... ie cheaper at higher volumes. Therefore, be careful of companies, even big ones that under quote your volume.

Yes. We always ask for a clause in our contracts that the final bill will not be more than 10% over the estimate. No one has ever balked at giving this to us.

We also choose based on the price per cubic meter, not the total price.

Did you have an international move or domestic?

I was wondering about about how much would it cost for about 4-5 cubic m to the US.

I've done both, but the recent move was local, and my last international move was in 2007, so I can't give you any price estimates that would be valid, unfortunately.

It might depend where in US.

I recently sent 3 cubic metres to Melbourne, Australia for about $3,000 .... if that helps.

I never knew you could do that. Thanks for the tip.

I second for allied pickfords, very professional mover.
The latest one we used early 2015,to move our personal effects to Cairo in 40 ft container, including very fragile items (crystals, ceramic and terracotta)
arrived perfectly, no single item was broken

SRT Movers is cheap and good.
It is local owned company but it is international movers.
Most of its client is US embassy and Australian embassy.
