Are you preparing for an international move? If a local move is stressful, an international move takes it up to a whole different level. But you don’t have to pull your hair out or lose sleep over your relocation. Take it from the pros. These tips can help keep you on track and make your move go smoothly.
Tip #1: Create a Schedule
As soon as you know, when your move will take place, create a schedule based on how much time you have. Include things like selling, renting, or relinquishing your current residence, sorting through and culling your belongings, creating a budget, and hiring a moving company.
Tip #2: Hire an Experienced Moving Company
A company with international moving experience is critical. You don’t want someone with little to no background in the complexities of relocating outside the United States or returning to the United States from abroad managing your move.
Tip #3: Get Your Paperwork in Order
You’ll need to complete the paperwork with your moving company, but you’ll also need to make sure you have documentation for your move. That might include passports, visas, educational and medical records, and banking information for your arrival. You should also hand-carry important documents such as birth certificates, naturalization documentation, marriage licenses, and any insurance policies you hold.
