Choosing Your International Removalists for an Efficient Overseas Relocation

Business observers say that there has never been any point in history when people have crossed borders more than today. Moreover, people go for more than just a short stint in a host country. In an increasing number of cases, the move involves long-term international relocation, requiring you not just to visit the place, but to actually transfer your life (temporarily or not) and make yourself a new home in a foreign country.

Our team of international removalists here at Bells Removals and Storage have seen how such a move can be highly costly, as well as emotionally exhausting for the person moving. Simply moving to a different house in another neighbourhood can already be quite a challenging task. The challenge naturally becomes more difficult if it entails going away, leaving all the familiar places and faces, and settling down in a new place where almost everything – from the food to the culture to the language – is new. The good news is that it can be made more efficient and less stressful with sufficient preparation and some expert help.

Here are some things to remember to ease the transition:

  1. Have a clear idea of the relocation arrangement. Make sure you fully understand what your company expects you to accomplish from the relocation. At the same time, clarify what the obligations of your company are to you to help you do your job well while you’re there.
  2. Be fully prepared before you fly. The success of your relocation relies on how much preparation you have invested in while you are still in your home base. Get all the information you need about the host country; ask about culture orientation or language classes that your company offers to international assignees. Make sure you have taken time to talk and make arrangements with all the people who will be affected by your move – your teammates, your friends, your family and loved ones.
  3. Get expert help right away. Don’t make the mistake of wasting time and money just to see if you could do everything by yourself. During the moving process, you will be juggling a lot of major issues, including orienting yourself with the new culture, becoming acquainted with the changes in your job tasks/processes, building your network, organising your travel documents and more. It’s crucial to learn to delegate other tasks, and this includes outsourcing your packing and storage to professional international movers. We can help you prepare a moving checklist, organise your stuff, provide storage supplies and containers, and pack your valuables in the most efficient, hassle-free way.

Investing in the services of a professional saves you time and money and provides you the focus you need as you embark on this new journey. Don’t risk a bad experience at such an exciting time of your life. Move with confidence with the experienced team at Bells Removals.
