An International Moving Service to Ease Your Overseas Relocation
As if the task of moving wasn’t stressful and time consuming enough, the added tension of trying to plan an overseas move can be overwhelming. Thankfully, Georgia Pack and Load can provide you with a trustworthy international moving service, so you can rest assured that your belongings will be well taken care of during your move.
Once you secure an international moving service to handle the packing and transportation of your things to your new home, there are several other factors to take into consideration as you prepare for this exciting new adventure. Some helpful international moving tips are:
- Find out if your destination country has any required vaccinations for those traveling, if any health documents are needed to enter the country, or if there are any required vaccines or quarantines that accompanying pets may need.
- Make sure you have all the correct visas and paperwork for when you arrive at your new home.
- Make official copies of important documents such as birth and marriage certificates, proof of citizenship or residency, social security cards, medical and dental records, academic certifications and diplomas, employment records, etc.
- If you are only moving temporarily, or if you do not plan on bringing all your possessions at once, find out if your international moving service has a storage facility. Georgia Pack and Load has a 38,000 square foot containerized storage facility for any things you don’t wish to or can’t take.
- Obtain an extended supply of any prescription medications you or family members may need.
- If you plan on driving in your new country, make sure your current driver’s license is valid and not about to expire, and obtain a foreign driving permit.
- Gather relevant tax paperwork, as income earned in foreign countries may be subject to different tax laws.
These are just a few international moving tips you can use when planning your move abroad. The company providing your international moving service can provide you with even more helpful information to make your move run smoothly.
