Create a moving journal in 5 easy steps to simplify your international relocation!

An international relocation is not an easy process to execute; even more so if you do it yourself without the assistance of an overseas removal company. Professional international removal companies make the whole relocation process a lot easier and smoother. But even if you are hiring professional moving companies for your relocation, you can still simplify your move even more by creating a ‘moving journal’. Now you may ask what is a moving journal and how exactly could you create one. Well, this is exactly what this blog will talk about. You can create a moving journal by following these 5 simple steps laid out below.


Step 1: The first step for creating a moving journal is to set the date for your relocation. Without a set date, the whole purpose of creating a journal would be lost. So let us say that you have picked 28th October as the date for your international relocation. Now begin a reverse countdown from this date. Let us say if today is 20th September, then there are 39 days between today and your scheduled moving day. Now create 39 pages for each of those 39 days. 


Step 2: Once you have decided upon a date and have marked out pages for each day leading up to the moving day, go to the journal’s last page. On this page, list every single task, big or small, pertaining to the relocation. Examples of such tasks would include informing your utility providers about your relocation, searching for the best international movers, confirming the availability of such international relocation companies, etc. Usually, an international relocation would involve about 10-20 big tasks which could be broken down into 50-100 smaller tasks.


Step 3: Next up, you need to go through your list of tasks and mark the ones that are very important. After you have identified the important tasks, assign 2 or 3 tasks to every day in the journal. Don’t assign more than 3 tasks to a particular day. It may become too much for you to handle. Also, leave a few pages totally blank. There is every chance that you may remember a task later or you may not be able to complete an identified task on the assigned date, such as booking international moving services. The blank pages in the journal would come in handy for such situations. Also make sure you assign important tasks to the days when you wouldn’t be burdened with personal and professional commitments.


Step 4: In the next step, segregate all the tasks that you have identified into categories such as ‘kitchen list’, ‘shopping for the new apartment list’, ‘booking overseas movers and packers list’, ‘informing organisations about your relocation’ list, etc. Grouping the tasks would give you a clear direction of how to execute them. Cross out a task once you have completed it; it will give you a nice feeling of satisfaction and achievement.


Step 5: Lastly, map out the estimated expenses and the budget in a separate section. It will help you keep track of where your money is going and also predict and arrange for future expenses. It will also give you an estimate of the total cost of the move. You can divide the expenses into sections such as furniture, deposit for the apartment, international relocation services costs, emergency costs, etc.
