Hello,
My family and I are considering a move to Pyeongtaek, S. Korea in a couple of months. I'm trying to get some idea of what is the best moving companies to consider and what I can expect to pay to move a 3-br house, full garage, and a vehicle?
Any information is greatly appreciated.
Al

From where are you moving?
Generally, for moving a family of 3 from Germany to Korea, I have seen offers from 5000-15000EUR.
Disecting the offers, the least expensive part is the shipping.
Most expensive is packaging, wrapping and loading + unloading.. From door to door transport, costs are somewhat around 2400EUR from Cologne to Seoul.
However, the container has to be loaded within 2 hours after it is positioned and loading height is breast high...
So you need some strong helpers if you want to go down that path and save thousands of $$$$$

If you decide to pack on your own please check the insurance terms with your forwarder. Usually they only insure goods that are packed by own staff.
Some allow prepacking - but you have to leave boxes open to have them checked by a supervisor.
Only those considered packed well for export shipment will than be signed in the packing list as packed by forwarder - all others listed as packed by owner.
And owner packed can be excluded from fowarders insurance.
So make sure you ask how your forwarder is handeling packing.
