Get started with your International Move
If you’ve ever moved house before you’ll know that there always seems to be one last thing to do, or one last thing to pack each time you go back to the old house, however, when you’re moving internationally, you generally only get to make one trip, and Walkers has a few tips to help make your move overseas as efficient as possible:
Identify, label and separate your items.
When packing and finalising your belongings, clearly identify which items are going to be stored, which are going to be air freighted over, and which are going to be shipped. Also create a separate classification for any items you are transporting internationally by hand yourself. The clearer and more organised you can be, the less chance there is of misunderstanding or misplaced items.
You may choose to keep some items in storage space in the country you are leaving, and deciding early what you are going to leave behind can save you a lot of time with packing and shipping. Feel free to let our consultant know if you any assistance with storage
Make sure you have organised payment of your insurance premiums while you are overseas, and contact your insurer to find out about the best way to cover the items which you are shipping or storing while you travel. Our international removal consultant can help you with your removal insurance needs.
Prepare your pet.
If you are moving internationally with a pet, make sure you have the necessary health certificate from the vet, and that your pet’s vaccinations are all up to date.
Also take the time to visit the Smart Traveller website before you move internationally as the site is filled with advice and assistance regarding items you can take overseas, as well as travel advice, customs and warnings for particular areas.
