Moving is difficult enough but moving to another country adds a number
of complications so you'll want to know that all your prized possessions will arrive
safely and undamaged. This is why its essential to use a specialised international
shipping organisation. They are experts at dealing with all of the small complications
that may arise during the move process. As well as their experience in dealing with
freight forwarders at UK ports they also have contacts at ports in countries all
around the world. On top of this they will normally have their own storage facilities
which is vital when waiting for your excess luggage to be sent.
Whether it be the weather, the cost of living or just for a change of scenery, thousands
of people are moving abroad every week. While house prices have dipped a bit recently,
many people still have enough equity in their properties to sell up and buy a dream
home abroad. This is reflected ny property prices in traditional destinations closer
to home but there is still plenty of value out there.
Once you've found your dream home you'll need to start the process of moving all
your valued possessions to pastures new. Obviously this is a very complicated process
and most people use the services of an international removals company. The
problem is; which one to use? Well, the best way is to get quotes from a good selection
so that you can make up your own mind which one offers the most cost-effective solution.
Packing & Storage
Your mover will offer to pack your goods for you (at a premium) or you can do it
yourself. They are experts at packing and you may be surprised at how quick they
can clear a house. They will also have all of the right padding, boxes, tapes etc
to do the job whereas you will have to buy your own. When everything is packed the
removals company will transport it to the storage area.
Normally you would fly to your destination and put your personal effects in storage
while you wait for the next shipment to go. Clearly, the more popular the route,
the more regular the flights or sailings but sometimes storage can run into months.
Therefore, you may be without your belongings for some time so it is essential that
you take the basics with you.
Handling & customs
When the container arrives at the other end it will sit in a holding area waiting
for customs clearance. This can also take several weeks or even months. This process
is managed by your handling agent who will keep you informed as to the progress
of your clearance. Once cleared the handling agent will transport your possessions
to your new home.
