Our experienced Beltmann movers can also offer you great tips that can make international moving go smoother. Consider:

Have you contacted the consulate yet? Working with the team at your foreign consulate can help you navigate the legal aspects of making your move. Relocating internationally is likely to require visas, permits, and documentation. The consulate can tell you which documents are needed and how to file them, as well as any other legal particulars that will impact your move.

Have you made your own travel plans yet? You should plan your travels carefully for yourself and any members of your household. Take into consideration what you’ll have with you: you should carry copies of travel and identity documents for yourself and each member of your household, and you should make sure that your luggage can easily pass through customs inspection. Your luggage should also contain anything you have to have to get through a few days, such as medication, toiletries, and a change of clothes.

Have you made travel plans for your pets yet? If you’re moving pets internationally, you’ll want to repeat both steps above on behalf of your pets, as well. It’s likely that there are particular government documents, licenses, or permits to complete for your pet; you may need to provide proof of ownership or proof of vaccination. There may be a quarantine period upon arrival for your pet. If you are traveling by air, there may be additional restrictions from the airline. If you’re traveling with a pet, make sure to have adequate food on hand for a few days, as well as any medications, documentation, and licenses that are needed.

Have you made a financial plan yet? Moving internationally means you’ll be moving away from the financial institutions you’re currently using, and that you’ll need your money to be wired to a new institution in a new country. Opening new accounts, moving your money, and authorizing wire transactions can all take time. Make a plan for your checking and savings accounts, your investment accounts, and any loans, credit cards, and other financial accounts in your name.

Beltmann movers know that you’ll have your hands full as you get ready for your international move, and we’re here to do all the heavy lifting for you. We can help move furniture, musical instruments, exercise equipment, art, and antiques, as well as help you pack everything safely so that it will arrive securely in your new home. No matter how far you need to move, Beltmann movers can help you get there.
