Tips for a Successful International Move

With a little research and help from the professionals, you can ensure that your international move goes as smoothly as possible. No matter where you are moving to or how long you plan on living abroad, here are a few important tips to consider during the planning process:

  • Save Your Money: Moving anywhere is a costly endeavour. Costs for an international move can include your visa application, plane tickets, housing, international shipments, emergencies and other miscellaneous expenses. When moving abroad, it is best to have at least six months’ worth of savings at the minimum. Doing your best to save money and planning a monthly budget before your move can help you tremendously once you arrive at your destination.
  • Prepare Your Documents: International moves require a lot of paperwork. One of the first tasks you should do is apply for a passport if you don’t already have one. If you have a passport, make sure that it is up-to-date so that you can apply for a visa. Your international movers can also help you identify any additional requirements. After you collect your documents, save a backup copy in case of an emergency.
  • Update Service Providers: Make sure to notify your service providers of any changes before your move to a new location. Notices should be given to your bank, healthcare and insurance providers. If your providers cannot offer continued services while you’re away, you have enough time to research and transfer to a different service company in the country that you are moving to.
  • Organize Your Packing Tasks: Packing can be an enormous and tedious task. While it requires careful planning and preparation, organizing your packing tasks can help you focus on the best way to handle your personal items. Learn how to pack correctly for a move from a moving professional or use our services to get the job done right the first time.
  • Work with International Movers: While family and friends may be keen to help out during your move, it may not be enough. Moving to a different country is a highly intricate job that requires the help of a professional who can guide you through the details.
