Moving overseas? Read this first!

Moving to another country can be extremely exciting but also daunting with uncertainty. With the right company, you will be able to have a swift and productive removal service, guaranteeing you peace of mind by the time your move occurs.

Here at Bell and Sons, we are asked constantly asked about the functions and developments of our International Removals service. So we thought we would write an article, giving you some core tips to consider when planning and proceeding with your exciting international move abroad.

Make sure all your documents are safe and secure

Moving abroad isn’t just getting on a plane – there are many documents you require such as an official visa and copies of necessary documents you will need in that country.

If you are planning on taking documents within your storage, for extra care, place all documents and loose paper in a binder – guaranteeing that your documents are all in one place so when you start to unpack in your new home, you will know exactly where everything is.

Whether you choose Air Freight or Deep Sea your documents will be safe within your container – just make sure you have all you need.

Tip: Label your binders if you are going to use numerous binders for your documents.

Declutter your home  

You don’t have to put your entire life in your international transportation cargo, by placing items in storage, you will be able to send for these items at a later date or store them to donate at a later date through family and friends.

It can be very hard to let go of items, especially items that you have had for many years and have bonded with. But you must remember that many items that are in your home can be replaced when you arrive at your brand new off-shore home. So don’t panic!

Get some help from a moving company

Even when you have organised what you will need to take with you on your journey and what you can let go, you probably won’t be able to fit it all in the passenger seat next to you on the plane.

An international mover company can provide you with a whole package for your relocation, from document storage and any items you know you don’t need just yet.

When you are planning your relocation, make sure you keep these tips in mind in order to simplify your journey.

  • Organise what you wish to take with you for your relocation, what items you wish to place in storage and what items you wish to donate to charity
  • Label all boxes – you don’t want to donate a box you wish to keep!
  • Make sure all documents are safe – use binders and either take with you or place in storage.
  • Contact a reliable and experienced removal company to aid you with your queries and choices of Air Freight and Deep Sea Containers.
