Moving house can be a tense time, and if you are moving to another country, the stress is often even greater. You are able to make the process of relocating to a different country much easier and less overwhelming by deciding on the right moving company. Our information is developed to help you to make the right choice.

Being prepared for your move

The earlier you speak to a removal company, the more prepared you will be. Relocating overseas can prompt numerous questions and unexpected problems can occasionally come up. Dealing with a relocation firm right away can avoid problems down the road.

An example of this is that some items in your home will not be permitted to travel to the region of the world you will be moving to. Your mover can help you determine what to take and which possessions to leave. A professional removal business will also know the regulations in each country and can give you advice as required. Keep in mind, they help families and corporations move all over the world several times a week and it can really make a significant difference to utilise their experience.
Your Overseas Remover will should do every single thing possible to make certain your possessions arrive when you need them, as timing is essential. Make sure your mover discusses with you the best and most affordable method of transportation for your items whether this is by boat, plane, road, or even a combination of all these.

Once your international removal firm is familiar with the methods and timelines to which you would like your items delivered, they will then be ready to tell you exactly how much it will all cost and give you an estimate of the expected time of arrival in your new house. Most good worldwide moving companies will allocate you a Move Co-ordination so you will have a single point of contact and will let you know your options at each and every phase of the process.

Your removals company should inform you if there are any typical delays at the country you're moving to, and take all measures to keep them to a minimum.

Getting the packing right

Making sure you make the best usage of space and ensuring your belongings are well protected is a very skilled job. Your remover should have the ability and materials to execute a professional and effective job. When you are relocating to a different country, your personalised items are likely to be packed in a shipping container for the journey. The fee for your move will be worked out on the volume of storage space you fill, which means that a badly-loaded container can use too much space and money which will raise the likelihood of your prized belongings being damaged during the long transit to your destination region.

After you've discussed with your removals company which items to take, and what to leave, your removal firm will prepare to 'export pack' your valuables set for travel.

A good removal firm should be sure all of the parcels and cartons are registered. This enables them to be counted into the container and counted off at your new destination. Your property will most likely be loaded at your house and taken right to the boat if you use the whole container. Your items might have to go back to the storage facility for packing as a 'part load' for people with fewer belongings.

Shipping Vs Airfreight

Often it's a good idea to send various items by air to arrive in advance of the longer sea cargo. Airfreight is costly and is typically according to the weight along with the volume of your possessions. Nonetheless, a number of items like equipment for your office, kids' clothing or whatever you use on a daily basis, may best be delivered by air if you don't wish to be without them for an extended period. Even by air it may take items several days to arrive at the other end, so it's usually not advisable to send anything by air that you will require quickly on arrival.

Payment

Your international removal firm pay the cargo expenses to the shipping line and therefore will want you to settle your bill prior to the goods being picked up. This advance payment policy is usually common practice around the overseas removal industry.

When you get to your destination

Your overseas removals firm will designate a 'Destination Partner' to look after your possessions once they arrive. The Destination Partner will organise customs clearance and deliver your goods to your brand new home. This company usually can organise temporary storage if required.

Insurance premiums and extended liability

Despite the fact that your overseas moving firm will take great care to protect your property during a move, there are potential risks associated with relocating to another country, a few of these risks are going to be beyond the control of the removals team, and appropriate insurance cover is suggested.

A helpful removals firm are able to offer insurance and a better one will give you extended liability (sometimes for an extra fee). You should always be aware of precisely which service you're being offered and the insurance cover it has to offer. Mostly you will want to insure your items against all danger of physical loss and breakage in transit.
