Jan. 16, 2010 - PRLog -- For those in need of an international shipping company, choosing one can be a daunting task. Especially if you factor in that there is a risk for fraud and many may not be the legitimate companies they portray themselves to be. But there are some things that people can look for in order to ensure that they have a successful outcome.

“You don’t want to just pick any company that you find from doing an online search,” explains Mike Sekirin, of Carex Shipping ( “You really have to research the company and then team up with one.”

In choosing an international shipping company, the important things to review include:
•   Making sure that they are licensed and bonded through the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC), as all international shippers are required to be by law. This protects the customer & allows them to file a claim should the company disappear.
•   Where their shipping ports and destinations are in both the USA and worldwide. Most international shipping companies have a headquarters, but ship from multiple ports around the country.
•   That they assist the customers with such things as handling paperwork, customs clearances, and helping them to get the shipped items to their destination if it is in another city.
•   That they have a good reputation. You can check into this by conducting some online searches on the company name, checking with the FMC, etc.
•   Offering ample amount of customer support and ways that you can reach the company to have your questions and concerns addressed.

Carex Shipping has been making international deliveries for over a decade. They are licensed and bonded, and they make providing good customer support and assistance part of their philosophy.

“We are happy to report that at Carex, we have earned a solid reputation as an international shipper,” adds Sekirin. “We can help ship just about anything overseas, but our strength lies in overseas relocation for cars, motorcycles, boat, trucks, recreational vehicles, etc.”
