Each year, nearly 300,000 UK citizens and residents move abroad.
With each move comes unique stories and challenges, but they all share in the complexity and struggles that can be present when moving internationally.
Professional movers can help turn a logistical nightmare into an efficient process that saves you time, money and stress.
Let’s explore 5 reasons why you need a professional international moving service when moving abroad.
1. Avoid Hidden Costs
What’s the cost of moving?
- Packaging materials
- Rubbish fees
You may think that you can determine all of the costs involved. But unless you’ve completed several international moves before, it’s difficult to know what expenses to factor into your moving budget.
Professional movers who specialise in international moves know what the costs are. They can help you better understand what to expect, where your money is going and how much to set aside for moving expenses.
2. Save Time
Moving from one flat to another is a hassle. Moving from the countryside to the city is perplexing. Moving across country lines can be a nightmare. But professional movers can help plan an efficient, worry-free move.
With an international moving service, you get to enjoy your new home and country sooner.
3. Access to Proper Equipment
How difficult is it to butter your toast without a butter knife? Does a fork or spoon do the job quite as well?
Having the proper equipment matters. You could spend days packing, transporting, unpacking. Or spend several hours and be done with it.
Professional international movers have the right equipment to do the job effectively.
The logistics of an international move are unlike any other. Among customs regulations, safe long distance packing, transportation and storage, you could find a million ways to mess up, adding significant stress, time and hassle to your move.
Professional movers who have experience with international moving, know the ins and outs. They understand the pitfalls and the hoops you may need to jump through to get your things safely to another country.
An international move isn’t the time to try to figure things out yourself.
5. Reduce Stress on Pets and People
International moves can be very stressful for pets and children who are sad, scared or confused about why Mum or Dad are packing up all of their toys.
The adults can be equally stressed if they’ve never completed an international move before or are moving to a country whose customs and language are unfamiliar.
A professional moving service can’t promise that they’ll make your move 100% stress-free. But if they’ve completed enough country-to-country moves, they’ll demonstrate that they’ve things under control.
They understand how to put pets and children at ease to make this a more enjoyable experience for all.
