What you Need to Know about Moving To Another Country
Posted on 12th May 2021 at 11:33
At Movers International we are recognised as one of the foremost international moving companies in the UK. We have been moving people across the country and across the world for over 30 years and there are very few places that we have not been to. Maybe one or two remote islands in the Pacific, and not so much to Antarctica, but pretty much everywhere else.
That means that wherever you need to move to, we can help. Our expert friendly team of movers and packers will ensure that your belongings get to where you are going in perfect condition and on time.
Quite obviously, packing your goods correctly is critical. Whether you are using a full container or part only, your belongings need to be packed by experts because if you try to do it yourself you may well find that not everything is in its’ original condition when you get to the other end. That’s not a criticism, just a fact that packing goods for long distance travel needs the expertise and experience that our packers have.
If you are only moving across the Channel to somewhere such as France, Germany, Spain, or Portugal, or one of several other European countries, then we will take you from door to door. We go to the continent very regularly, and in some countries, such as Spain, Portugal, and France, we have regular weekly runs there. What this means for you is that we can save you a considerable amount of money if you only have a few items to move because they can go as a part load on one of those runs. So instead of using a whole removal van, you only pay for the amount of space that you use.
When you are moving further afield much the same thing applies. If you have enough for a full 20’ or 40’ container, then fair enough. However, if you are not taking that much with you it can go as a shared load or what is known as groupage. As one of the leading international moving companies, at Movers International we take care of all of the customs documentation for you. In addition, if you are shipping goods abroad but your new home is not ready to move into, we provide you with free storage for four weeks at our depot here in Preston.
We totally understand that moving to another country – even if it is only France or Spain – can be stressful. There are so many things that “could” go wrong. But our team is trained to the very highest standards and the object is to ensure that your move goes smoothly and that you don’t suffer from any stress. That is a very important part of our job. But when you talk to members of our team you will very quickly realise that they do know what they are talking about and they will put you at your ease. We treat every customer as an individual and provide the same level of service that we would expect if we were moving abroad ourselves.
There are a few other things to consider when moving overseas. One of these is that when you move goods you pay for the amount of space that they take up. It follows that if some of your furniture, for example, will flat pack, then do it, as it will cost less.
One other thing that you might want to know is that if you are ordering new furniture or other items to take abroad with you, then you can have them delivered to us in Preston and we will ship them abroad from here. We take the greatest trouble to see to it that your move goes without a hitch.
