The International Move Process
Within 24-hours of your call to Fast Moving Company, your worldwide move will be assigned to a move coordinator, a highly trained expert whose job is to keep you informed and to orchestrate every element of your relocation. Your move coordinator will oversee your entire move, from developing your estimate to helping you prepare for customs requirements in your destination country.
Planning for an International Move
Smart planning is the key to a successful international move. Beginning with your first call to Fast Moving Company, our comprehensive move management process provides a clear roadmap to your new home. From specialized packing services to help moving your pets, we’ll build a move plan that meets your unique needs at every step, and we’ll provide a complete quote with details about timing, deliverables, and costs.
Packing for an International Move
Moving day arrives. Now is when Fast Moving Company’s services really shine. Your driver and crew will be helpful and professional. Your furniture will be wrapped and cushioned properly, and crated if necessary to ensure protection. Your belongings will be packed into double or triple walled cartons, with careful handling of delicate items. And everything will be clearly labeled, so it’s unpacked in the appropriate room.
Heightened security concerns have made clearing customs increasingly complicated. Count on our experience to see you through. Our expertise in the customs requirements of countries around the world let us provide accurate guidance regarding restricted items and paperwork procedures. So there will be no surprises when your shipment arrives.
We’ll give you a hand in settling in with thoughtful unpacking procedures that make your life easy. Plus, we’ll perform a careful inspection and inventory of all your items and clean up packing materials and debris. And in case you’re not fluent in the local language yet, an English-speaking crew leader specially trained to assist international moves will be there to greet you.
Getting Around in Your New Neighborhood
Your move coordinator in the destination country will not only arrange delivery of your household goods. They are also a wealth of information about culture, climate, schools, government, dining, and much more. So you’ll feel less like a stranger in a strange land, and more like a local.
How early should I schedule my international mover?
On the most basic level, you want to provide your chosen moving service with enough time to make preparations. For an international move, this means scheduling a moving service at least 12 weeks in advance. This is especially important if you intend to move during a peak season, such as late spring or summer. 12 weeks is generally more than enough time to plan and prepare. However, you also need to consider how long it will take to pack your entire household. You’ll need to move through each room carefully. If you intend to leave behind any items or sell anything off, consider doing so early on in the process. You don’t want to have to worry about that last-minute.
Again, schedule international moving service at least 12 weeks prior. Of course, earlier is always better. If you can book before that, then do so!
