I think maybe your question was too specific. I have used Crown, Graebel, Turner Davies and Team Allied for international moves. I would not recommend Team Allied/ Pickfords personally but know people who would. It's down to the team you have on the actual day.

From my last experience, if it's a big pack then go for the company that guarantees the same crew every day, a supervisor on site (that speaks English if that is a concern) and figures out how long it will take and adds a bit. Rushed packing is rarely good. Be prepared, get rid of everything you don't want beforehand, sort your drawers because they will pack the empty matchbooks and take photographs of anything of value or difficult to replace. Do not waive the insurance.

I moved from Texas to Singapore a few month ago. The Mover/packer in the US was Berger Transfer. I thought they did a very good job, packing everything with care and the crew was very professional. when my stuff arrived in Singapore, it as handled by Allied Pickfords. I'm not as happy with them. The crew late, and after they came up and said hi, they disappeared for a few hours until I called the manager. Because of that, they couldn't really finish unpacking by the en of the day, and I had to ask them to focus on the big items, and I unpacked small boxes myself later. I wouldn't recommend Allied.
