People talk about moving abroad for a variety of reasons. No matter what the reasons are, there is always an interesting combination of challenges and changes. What’s your motivation?
Some people are moving overseas because of transfer by their employers. Remember almost a decade ago on the old Friends television series, when Jennifer Aniston’s Rachel was about to accept a new position in France? She had everything arranged, and we-the viewers-never did find out how disorganized Rachel managed all that. If you’re moving overseas, you want to find a company that offers reliability, safety, economy, and efficiency.
Moving Overseas Tips:
In Julia Roberts’ 2010 movie Eat Pray Love, we have a woman who is moving overseas in order to taste various cultural experiences. If you undergo that type of transformation, you will ship some of your goods overseas and divest yourself of others.
Your overseas relocation company should be able to tell you about items that are prohibited by the country you’re moving to. They can include automobiles, liquor, firearms, culturally offensive materials, some electronic equipment, and even pets.
Some people just move abroad for family reasons. In 2007’s P.S. I Love You, starring Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler, a young widow travels overseas to meet her deceased husband’s family. In a case when you’re not actually moving overseas, you should still contact an overseas mover for information on the processes involved in extensive foreign travel. Your movers can even help you learn which vaccinations you should get.
In 2010’s Sex and the City 2, Sarah Jessica Parker and her friends decide on an extended romp abroad because Samantha’s friend has taken an overseas job. Just to accommodate their huge wardrobes, these ladies would have to choose from a variety of container types.
For everything they would be moving overseas, their first and most obvious choice would be a liftvan, approximately 200 cubic feet-which works out to 87 inches high by 87 inches long by 48 inches wide. Liftvans come as small as 100 cubic feet and they can go much larger.
What about people moving overseas for undetermined lengths of time, like Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson in 2003’s Lost in Translation? If you’re moving overseas for an extended period, you can utilize what’s known as a container-ranging from 1,000 to 2,500 cubic feet.
Storage on these at your destination location is expensive, so you shouldn’t use them if you are not able to take possession of your goods immediately.
Your overseas movers can tell you how long it will take your goods moving overseas to leave your current doorway and arrive at your new overseas digs-maybe two weeks or more. Your movers can also give you advice on consular contacts both here and abroad.
And you can expect some help in determining whether to transport goods that can be replaced inexpensively overseas.
In 1988’s The Accidental Tourist, William Hurt worked to make travel become a familiar thing. Buy a multi-pocketed notebook in order to begin your research. Locate overseas movers on the Internet for moving quotes; their huge volume of clients allows them to offer substantial savings to internet customers.
Sort your information as you acquire it in the notebook; most of these movers will provide you with moving checklists that will help you along the way.
