Packing Preparations To Be Made For An International Move 

Are you planning to finally live in the Land of Milk and Honey? If so, you would need the services of a company that offers international removals. But prior to the mover's arrival at your old dwelling to transport your things, you also need to prepare your things for the move.

1. 8 weeks prior to moving
Catalogue your belongings and choose which items you want to take with you, which ones you want to sell or give away, and which ones you need to put in the garbage. After listing, you will be shocked at the large number of items that you don't need in your new residence. During this time, you should begin packing small items such as valuables, heirlooms, books, jewellery, and important documents. If you pack them on the last day, most probably you are going to leave behind these easily misplaced items. Label the boxes so that it would be easier for you to identify what is inside once you take them out at your new abode. This is also the perfect time to notify your bank, post office, insurance company, utility companies, and other entities regarding your change of address.

2. 5 weeks prior to moving
This is the time when you need to intensify your packing. Finalize the items that you are going to bring with you. Additionally, you should begin boxing in big electrical appliances such as your TV sets, refrigerator, stereo, and the like. You should also start packing small furniture sets. Phone your friends, relatives, and colleagues, and give them your new address and other important information.

3. 2 weeks before moving
It's now time to pack in your big furniture pieces and your clothes. Put them inside large boxes, and move them directly against the wall so they won't block the hallway. In that way, you make it easier for the moving company to lift and carry your items to their truck. Make sure you label your boxes.

Lastly, if you are taking your pets with you, ensure that their affairs and documents are in order.

By taking heed these guidelines, moving becomes easier and more convenient for both you and the moving company.
