Whilst relocation itself is stressful, international
relocation proves to be much more stressful. This is because you not only move
to a new home, but to a new land with different cultures and languages. However
with these tips, you find your international relocation to be much easier and
1. It is obvious
that you need the help of international movers for your international
relocation. Choose a competent mover, charging reasonable rates and who has
contacts in the country you are moving to.
2. To start
packing, you have to first sell, throw or give away things you will not require
in your new country. This saves packing and unpacking time.
3. You then have
to plan how you pack. Things not used often should be packed first where
similar size and weight items should be packed together. Make sure no box is
too heavy to lift.
4. Use strong and
the right boxes with the right packing and wrapping materials to pack your
belongings. Boxes should be taped both on its' top and bottom and crumpled
paper or bubble wrap be used to pack items.
5. Label the boxes
based on the rooms they have to be delivered to in the new house. Make sure you
clearly mark fragile things, with arrows indicating upright position. Boxes
with essential items like cooking utensils, linens and toiletries should also
be marked for easy unloading.
6. Make sure all
your items are listed in the mover's inventory, and check it on arrival to
ensure that nothing was damaged or stolen in the move. You also have to take photos of your items
before the move to prove they were intact before the move. This will help in
making insurance claims, if necessary.
This done, your international
relocation process is less stressful and easier.
