Learning About Your Destination
When first considering moving, particularly if you are relocating overseas, there are many questions that you will need to answer. Interstate and international removalists that have global presence often have an in depth range of services that can help you find out about the place you are moving to.
“Settling-In Tips” provides useful advice from removalist companies that have staff living in different cities around the world, including information about transportation, schools, shopping, accommodations, banking and much more. You should take advantage of local knowledge in preparing to understand about and then settle into your new location.
Make sure that you have access to a professional move management team that is available to answer your questions and assist you with every step of the relocation.
Moving to a new place can be especially stressful for children, and a worldwide removalist can have an extensive program to assist parents and children through the transition. Specific children’s programs helps children learn all about different cities and the overall moving process.
Your Packing Day
On the day that your belongings are to be packed, make sure that you confirm with the packing team leader or supervisor the exact details and processes for the day. Ensure that you have access to important items during your relocation and set aside important documents, clothing, toiletries and other essentials. Find a special location for these items and alert your packing supervisor that these items should not be packed. In fact having them “off-site” is a way to be certain no items are mistakenly packed.
Color Locator System
To effectively organise the packing and transportation of your home, make sure that your removalists use a colour locator system. The packing crew will then apply colored stickers to the cartons as they are being packed. This process matches packages with rooms. Color-coded cards, hung on doors at the destination residence, are matched to like-colored stickers on cartons, simplifying the delivery and unpacking process.
Packing Inventory Sheet
As your personal belongings are carefully wrapped and packed, your supervisor will note each item on a “Packing Inventory Sheet.” Once all items have been removed from your home, packed and loaded into the moving van, they will be numbered and will appear on the packing inventory list. This inventory is a working document from your previous home to your new location.
Your relocations consultant should explain all of your transit protection options and answer any questions you have. Make sure that you know which insurance company underwrites the policy and that it is a reputable company. The policy you choose should offer full replacement cost coverage on a door-to-door, all-risks basis.
To ensure that your insurance coverage is in effect when your removal services begin, be sure to have it signed and given back to your removalists prior to your packing day.
