When I came out to the States, my move was handled by a firm called
Trans-Euro in the UK (from its name it might be reasonable to assume
they have offices in other European countries...) and Movers
International at the US end. Both did an excellent job and were very
helpful and accommodating when my moving date kept changing.
I don't have contact details for either with me here at work, but
I'll try to remember to post and/or mail them in the next few days.
Best of luck!
