Its Official! Check out our Expert Expats!

Sharon  @GoodMigrations

We at GoodMigrations are on a mission… a mission to help fellow expats navigate the logistical pain in the butt of moving overseas. Based on our own frustrations, we started GoodMigrations to make it easy to find a good international mover to get your belongings to your destination on time, on budget, and in good condition.

But how do you solve all the other challenges that come up before and after moving? You will have so many questions about neighborhoods, schools, healthcare, and mobile phones, just to name a few things. However, even we have limitations since we don’t have the inside scoop for every city around the world . Starting now we plan to change all that with our Expert Expat Program!

Our Expert Expat Program is designed to help fellow expats get ready for the big move and acclimate to their new surroundings by connecting to actual local expats. These expats have been where you are, done what you’ve done, and have come out on top!

New look, new features, same mission

Map of the world - move anywhere with GoodMigrations

You may have noticed our new website design. Here at GoodMigrations we’re on a mission to make the process of moving abroad easier for our fellow expats. As part of this mission we’ve redesigned ourselves with a new, streamlined look that puts the focus on our main purpose: helping you find international movers for your move. Based on feedback from users, we’ve also added some more robust features. Now you can easily compare quotes from different movers and book your move through the site!  Best of all, we remain a completely free resource to all of our users.

How it Works
The process is simple. Search for movers located near you, read reviews from previous customers, and request quotes from the ones you like. As before, the movers will contact you to schedule a visual survey of all the stuff you’re shipping. This is the best way to get an accurate quote. The quote will be posted back to the site using our standardized template, making it easy to compare what services each mover is including in their cost.

What’s so special about this “standardized quote template?” Well, most people move abroad once or twice in their lives so aren’t familiar with the moving industry. It can be hard to interpret all the insider lingo that movers use — even the best movers may refer to the same service using different terminology. Knowing exactly what’s included is important so you don’t get hit with extra charges down the road. You’ll have a simple side-by-side comparison of all your quote requests. Terminal handling charges? Inland freight? What’s all that stuff mean? Don’t worry — we’ve got you covered.

Once you’ve done a side-by-side comparison of your quotes using our new standardize quote template you can easily book a mover all through GoodMigrations. No more googling movers on the Internet or submitting quote requests on sketchy sites where you can’t evaluate the movers. Take care of all your moving needs in one secure place.

This is a big step for the international moving industry as we continue to work on eliminating the uncertainty and frustration of moving your stuff overseas. If you or someone you know is getting ready for their big move abroad then come to us to find a mover!

Read reviews and find an international mover

Adam Vagley @goodmigrations

find and international mover with GoodMigrationsRead reviews and find an international mover near you. In April 2012 we launched GoodMigrations to help people moving abroad get more insight into the international moving process and determine which international movers were reputable. We also wanted to provide independent social proof for all the great moving companies out there.

Over the past year the response from expats has been great. But there’s still a lot of work to do so we’ll be adding new functionality to the site over the next couple months.
One of the features we’re looking to include is a way for people moving abroad to easily compare moving quotes. We’ve found that for a person moving to a new country for the first time, comparing different moving quotes can be difficult given the different terminology and templates used by different companies.

Additionally, most customers don’t know enough about international moving to ask about things that may not be shown on the quote, such as terminal handling charges and container options. And of course trying to manage all the documentation and correspondence via email can be a headache since it gets buried under dozens of other personal or work messages.

On the moving company side, we’ll be looking at how we can help drive new business to the good, trustworthy moving companies — after all, paying for leads that are often bad or don’t go anywhere isn’t ideal. We also want to help the good guys really show off their track record and capabilities. As such, we’d love to get input from some international moving companies to make sure we’re adding features that can benefit them. So if you’re interested in contributing your thoughts please let us know and we’ll get in touch.

Just send us a note via email or Twitter 🙂

All the best,

Adam and Sharon

GoodMigrations Guest Post on Wealth Ships

Adam Vagley @goodmigrations

We’ve been working our way around the world, so to speak, by emailing fellow expat bloggers in our quest to build up customer reviews of international movers. The feedback has continued to be encouraging and some bloggers have joined our quest to improve the world of international moving. Sharon Hiebing, of Wealth Ships, is an American who moved to Belize in 2010 and now provides relocation consultation services to future expats. Sharon recently published a guest post I wrote on how to find an international mover. You can read it here. In the post, I talk about how crazy it is that you can find out more on the track record of a restaurant, where a meal costs you maybe $30, than you can for an international mover, whose service might cost thousands. Many thanks to Sharon H.  for this opportunity, and if you’re planning to move abroad (and to Belize in particular) make sure you follow her blog. She’s also on Twitter and Facebook.Belize- Black Hole on Goodmigrations
