There is lots to consider and plan when moving overseas. Whether moving for work, a lifestyle change or education, we usually all have items we want to take with us. If you plan on taking more than “excess baggage,” you will need to consider how your stuff will get shipped to your destination.
Which shipping method your moving company chooses to use greatly impacts shipping rates and thus, your bottom line. For this reason, it’s important to understand what it is they are proposing and what your other options are if there are any.
The first thing to note is how much you decide to ship greatly affects your shipping options. To keep costs down, it’s important to declutter and purge prior to requesting quotes and getting an in-home survey. This step is usually overlooked until after a quote is received and costs are over budget. So be proactive!
