International Shipping info - Be Prepared

As if moving from house to house isn’t stressful enough, try moving internationally. It is highly recommended that you research several different companies to ensure that you make an informed decision. Never base your decision solely on price. If one company is a lot cheaper then the majority of other companies than there are likely reasons why.

Not only is the actual moving process stressful but you will be moving into a new society with a different culture, language, and customs. You also have to plan ahead to take care of moving your personal belongings, vehicles, family members, and pets. This generally means getting through customs, locating storage facilities if you haven’t found a home already, and finding you new home.

When you are in the process of choosing an international moving company one of the first questions you should ask is how long they have been in business. Also find out what types of items they are willing to move, if they offer auto transporting, and also how to deal with customs once your possessions have arrived.

When you are selecting an international moving company ask them what the price of insurance or mover’s valuation coverage, and also what types of items are not allowed to be admitted into the new country. There are many countries that prohibit items like liquids, specific types of plants, and many other items you would never think of.

If you are only moving out of the country temporarily then you may want to store your personal belongings in a local storage unit rather than bringing everything with you or getting rid of things you don’t want to take along. Depending on how long you will be staying in another country it may be financially wise to rent a storage unit.
