A Few Tips For Ensuring You Pack Appropriately For Your Big Relocation Abroad

by Liz Seyi Digital marketing manager

It would be easy to think that if you simply partner with reliable and trusted Overseas Movers like Simpsons Removals that also happen to offer a packing service, it isn’t an aspect of your relocation that you’ll need to think about much.

However, it’s still well worth considering certain factors like the below when it comes to the packing of your goods, not least because you’ll have to pay for their transportation regardless.

Is it really worth bringing along all of that paperwork?

With so much else that you will need to ship from what may be one side of the world to another, you might want to think twice about packing all of your paperwork for the move. Instead, consider scanning and storing many of your important documents on your computer or in the cloud.

However, our overseas movers also realise that many of you may not entirely trust technology! That’s why we are perfectly happy to transport your paperwork with your other possessions if you would favour this, perhaps interspersed with periods of storage at our own facilities and/or those of our international partners, depending on the scale and complexity of the move.

Consider how long you’ll actually be gone for

Naturally, if you are planning to spend literally years abroad, we would recommend that you have any items of practical necessity or sentimental value delivered to your new home.

If, though, you will only be away from your previous home for up to six months or a year, it might be best to leave a lot of your possessions with family or friends. Just be mindful that if there are any items among those that you might suddenly need in the future, it could be a headache to get hold of them quickly.

Sell items that you know you won’t need

An overseas relocation is a major punctuation point in your life, so why not take advantage of this by picking out old items – such as unwanted ornaments or that microwave you never got round to getting rid of after your mother bought you a new one – and selling them?

You might be shocked by just how many fewer items you will be required to pack when you adopt a suitably ruthless approach at this stage. It’s the perfect way to combine the necessary packing for your relocation with what may be a greatly overdue ‘spring clean’.

Don’t underestimate the importance of quality packing

Successful packing for a big move abroad isn’t necessarily just about thoroughly covering everything in bubble wrap and applying a load of adhesive tape around it. The truth is that there is an art to the perfect packing operation, which is just one reason why our own overseas movers can also bring you the benefit of a complete export packing service.

Even if you would still prefer to pack your possessions yourself, we can give you all of the essentials – including heavy duty cartons, book cartons, bubble wrap, tape and more – that could be instrumental in ensuring you achieve the best-quality pack.
