Moving anywhere, let alone halfway around the world can seem like one big scary, stress-inducing heap of things to do. It is, but once you know that you will be moving international, contact your moving company!
Moving international with the best moving company
There are several criteria an international moving company must meet. To guarantee a quality removal the international mover must be in possession of quality label and certificates. Quality labels promise a certain quality or trait. International moving companies must be members of leading national and international industry associations such as FIDI and OMNI. Make sure when choosing an international mover, the local movers the international mover works with are also in possession of quality labels and certificates.
Pack your stuff! You are moving international!
Once you know you are leaving your country to move to your destination, start thinking about separating items to be stored, disposed of, given away, sold, moved by sea, moved by air or delivered to another family member before your departure. Remember that you have to pay for everything you bring with! It might be cheaper to buy furniture for example at the destination. For more information about shipping costs, see International removal quotes. Here you can read some tips to lower your shipping costs:
- Truck parts: Most often the mover will combine your removal with others to keep your costs down. This saves the cost of transport and that benefit is passed on you. Please note that you are somewhat less flexible in terms of time as you share the car.
- Volume Down: Movers calculate their prices based on volume. If all furniture and belongings of a family you are accumulating quite rapidly to 40 cubic meters. Try raising the volume down by taking away things that you do not plan to use later or you are planning to replace.
- Do the (un)packing yourself: You can save money by doing the packing yourself. You can request the mover to pack fragile and expensives objects like antique, but it saves a lot of money to do the rest yourself. The same counts for unpacking yourself.
- Focus on quality of quotes:The cheapest estimate or quote might not be the best, as some movers tend to overlook your items. In the end your move might become more expensive. Be sure that all your items are carefully noted and calculated.
In addition, consider which items will accompany you when moving international, specifically travel papers, immediate clothing, passports, medical documentation and records, family papers, valuables, jewelry, medication, school records, etc. For more information about an international move, see International relocation.
