Preparing to Move Overseas

Organise like you’ve never organised before

Make lists, delegate tasks, give instructions and do plenty of research. All of these things, aided by your organisation skills, will help you make your moving process that little bit easier. Be sure to research prices for shipping companies and movers if you’re planning to use them in amongst everything else; the costs of these services can be unexpectedly high so make sure you prepare yourself.

Clean out, and prioritise

It’s amazing just how much stuff we accumulate over the years, so when it comes to moving out and packing everything up, you’re invariably shocked by just how much stuff there really is. Be sure to be ruthless, clean everything out and prioritise what actually needs to be taken with you. Consider what you can go without all together, and what can be replaced when you arrive at your new home.

Make plans early and stick to the time frame

You’re going to want to get planning as early as possible when it comes to moving overseas. As soon as you know a move is on the cards, start doing your research and getting things ready for when you need to spring into action. This might seem like a little bit too much preparation, but when your life is all up in the air, you’ll be glad you prepared as much as you did.

Hire the professionals

When all else fails and things just aren’t getting done when you’re doing it yourself, hire the professionals. You can get professional movers, shipping experts and even professional packers who can help you make your moving process easier. While it may cost you a bit more than just doing things by yourself would, it will also expedite the process and help you stay as stress free as possible.
