5 Ways To Prepare for Your International Move

Overseas relocation can be stressful not only because of all the preparation it requires, but also because of how physically and mentally draining it can be. If you're planning an international move, you’ll need professional help to minimize the hassles and ensure a smooth transition. AJ’s Moving and Storage offers international moving services to provide a seamless relocation experience. Here’s a checklist on how to prepare for your international move:

1. Find an International Moving Company

Experience matters when you're looking for a moving company to relocate you internationally. An established international mover has the relevant experience to make your move smooth and easy.

AJ’s Moving and Storage has over 30 years of experience in international relocations. We make sure your move is efficient, less time-consuming, and cost-effective. Our staff is thoroughly trained and equipped to handle your belongings without damaging or losing them. We understand the rules for household goods importation, and you can rest easy knowing we’ll move your items into your new residence, wherever that may be.

2. Schedule an In-Home Estimate

Once you decide to work with us, we'll set up an in-home estimate. This allows us to give you a quote based on your household items and destination country.

If you’re relocating overseas, our estimators will come to your home and take a detailed inventory of all the items you’re moving. We’ll give you a free estimate in order to create a more accurate budget for your move.

3. Let Movers Help You Pack

AJ’s Moving and Storage will help pack all your belongings for the journey. We want you to have time and energy to focus on personal relocation matters. We use efficient packing techniques and materials to make sure your items are safe, whether they are shipped by road, rail, or air. 

4. Get Your Documents in Order

Relocating abroad requires a lot of paperwork. Here are some examples of what you may need:

  • Passport
  • Birth certificate 
  • Social security card
  • Health records
  • Driver’s license
  • School records
  • Vaccination records        

Start preparing the paperwork early to prevent inconveniences during your international move.

Having been in the international relocation business for years, we know the necessary paperwork your relocation needs. Our relocation experts understand the rules, regulations, customs, and other requirements for a legally acceptable relocation. 

5. Prepare Your Pets

Research pet rules and regulations early as some countries are strict regarding foreign animals within their borders.

At AJ’s Moving and Storage, we'll provide resources on the best way to move your pets. You may need proper pet documentation, and your pet may need to be quarantined upon arrival. There is also the possibility that the country you're moving to doesn’t accept foreign pets or particular breeds. It's good to be prepared for any scenario.
