ReloAdvisor checklist for expats
When moving, there are many things to take care of. To successfully complete all your moving preparations in time, you need to know how to organize your move well. The most important thing to remember is that you should take enough time to get ready. Packing can take longer than you expected and you may suddenly remember things you have forgotten but are important.
Begin your preparations two to three months in advance. You need this time to find the best removal company for you, figure out your moving costs and budget, prepare the packing supplies and think about how to organize the packing, etc.
Before searching for a moving company, we suggest making a list of items you want to move. Moving can be expensive, especially if it is long distance, so you will certainly be looking for efficient ways to cut down the cost. The best way to reduce the moving cost is to lighten the load. Therefore, we advise either to declutter your rooms or sell unwanted items.
By checking the quotations, you can have an idea of how much your move can cost. For instance, in ReloAdvisor you can receive up to 4 free quotes from moving companies around the globe. At the end of the request, you can notice the estimation. However, depending on the moving date and volume, the prices can change.
Remember that the lowest quotation is not always the best one. However, if you want to move cheap be sure to ask what the quotation includes. Normally, the extra services are not included. So, you have to check how much these services can cost you.
Selecting a moving company
After comparing the prices, we suggest checking online reviews of different removal companies. Also, we strongly advise looking if the company exist on search engines and social media platforms. Strong brand representation and image can make a decision process smoother.
When you are packing, make sure you have enough packing materials. People generally underestimate how many things they have and need to go and buy some extra. A solution to this which will save you time is to ask the removal firm if it can deliver the moving supplies to you.
We advise you to organize your move in advance, For example, if you are planning to move overseas, make sure to book a flight on time. Also, if you have a vehicle, make sure to find a moving company, which is able to ship your transportation.
