Moving into a new home can be extremely stressful—even if you’re only moving a short distance away. When moving internationally, however, the process can be much more challenging compared to a small, local move, especially without the right help to assist you in the process.
A-1 Fargo, the most trusted international movers in Miami, has been helping our customers move into new homes in locations all over the globe for years. We know exactly what it takes to make the international moving process a seamless experience and have provided this guide to help you navigate the process as smoothly as possible.
Research Your New Destination
moving to a brand-new country, it’s beneficial for you and your family to know
as much as you can about living in a different land. Investigate the area
you’re moving to on the internet and learn everything you can about your new
location. Find out what the culture is like, what important landmarks or
attractions are nearby your new city, laws and general cultural norms, and
In addition to information about the climate, culture, religion, and other general facts about the new destination, make it a point to learn about daily life in the new area. Find out the best places to live, the general cost of living in the new area, currency exchanges, transportation options, and other important information to be prepared for living in the new environment.
Keep a Checklist and Take Notes
As you are planning to move out of the country, you will surely have a lot of things in your mind. Stay organized by creating a checklist of important things to remember as you go along, to avoid forgetting important things amidst the hustle and bustle of the moving process.
While we prefer keeping a checklist on a small notebook that fits inside your pocket or purse, you can also use your phone or a tablet. There are many apps that you can use to keep notes or make lists, so find the option that you’re the most comfortable with and stick to it.
Establishing the Timeline
If you hire professional international movers to help you with your relocation process, the first thing they’ll do is organize the process by creating a personalized moving timeline. The timeline will include details on when you need to start packing, important document filing dates, the exact date you should get the moving company to ship your belongings, as well as the official moving in date. They’ll also help you organize customs paperwork, and your travel logistics during the moving dates.
If you are not using professional movers to help you with the process, it’s extremely important that this step is adhered to. The last thing you want is to wind up rushing through the process at the very last minute, missing critical paperwork, or confusing travel dates—among many other things that could go wrong during an international move, and a strict and comprehensive moving timeline will help prevent problems like these.
Finding the Right Professional Team to Help
Moving internationally is different and more complicated than just moving locally. Professional moving services from trustworthy and experienced international movers can streamline the process for you so that you can concentrate on adjusting to your new life abroad. When you choose experienced moving professionals, you can be sure that the burden on your shoulders will be lessened, your belongings are safe and secured, and the moving itself will generally run smoothly.
It’s very important to choose only the most reputable moving company that’s equipped with the resources and the expertise required to handle big moves. Look for companies that are affiliated with major international van lines, like A-1 Fargo’s affiliation with Atlas Van Lines, an internationally renowned moving and transportation giant in the industry.
