Having trouble deciding if I should move all of my furniture or only my personal effects. What do you suggest?
Generally speaking the international removal costs will be cheaper than buying furniture new, so if you’re thinking of getting an unfurnished apartment or house we suggest you to take the furniture with you. However you have the option of renting a furnished or part furnished place , in which case you may not need to take everything with you. You also have the option of renting furniture of course, however overtime that becomes more expensive than shipping or buying new, so that really depends on how long you intend to stay in your new Country.
We recommend that you do because there are risks when transporting fragile things thousands of miles by land , sea and air. We take every possible precaution to minimise that risk, but the simple fact is that risks do remain, and this is the reason why the Movers cannot guarantee a damage free move and we limit our liability for damage. The transit insurance is just in place to ensure that you get compensated in case something happens.
For an international removals by land, sea or air all small items and personal effects need to be wrapped, boxed and stackable. Furniture and other items that cannot be boxed (pictures, mirrors etc) will be wrapped by your expert movers . Export wrapping does depend on your final destination and the mode of transport, but generally for sea and air freight packing consists of several layers of different material that ensures your furniture is protected, but also is still able to breathe. This is to ensure that there is less chance of condensation forming, which can occur with temperature changes whilst your goods are in transit to your new home abroad. All items are numbered and inventoried, this is required so that we can ensure all items are tracked throughout the transit process, and it may also required for customs clearance.
Sorting out your financial planning is critical prior to relocating overseas. Take a look at the main aspects of finance you need to organise before you leave the country:
- Bank accounts and credit cards– do you need to keep your UK bank accounts? Certainly you do if you will continue to own assets in the UK, such as property. Before you get settled into your new home, you should also set up an international account. Many UK banks will offer these, so it won’t be a stressful process. There is also a new wave of on-line banking options which enables cheap and easy currency exchanges, transfers, and financial management.
- Pensions – You can either leave your pension in the UK, or transfer it to an approved arrangement in your new country of residence. But before you move, you must inform your current pension holder.
- Existing insurance and other financial commitments – you will need to carefully go through your bank statements and ensure that you cancel any standing orders or direct debits that you will no longer need. And check that any unnecessary insurance polices are cancelled (many have an auto-renew policy these days).
- Income taxes – Whether you have to pay expat taxes will depend on your own personal circumstances. You can check on the government website whether you’ll still be liable for tax whilst overseas.
