Moving to another country isn’t as simple as packing up your household contents and driving them to your new home. There are a lot of things to consider as you embark on your new adventure, such as shipping all of your furniture and other household goods.
The trick is to keep things as simple as possible. In this blog post we share a few tips on how to make that move abroad a less stressful one.
Declutter your current living space
Why pay to cart unused items to your new destination? Take the time to declutter (one room at a time) and get rid of items that you no longer use or need. You definitely don’t want to take up unnecessary space when lugging your belongings from country to country. Consider selling these items or putting your unused belongings into self storage. As a result, eliminating clutter will simplify the packing process and make the decision on what to take or leave a lot easier.
Pack up room by room
The best approach is to pack up one room or area of your home at a time. As you work through each room, decide what you’re taking with you and what you’re leaving behind. If you’ve only seen your new home in pictures, it may be difficult to know exactly how much space you have available.
Draw up a list of what you plan to leave behind in storage and what you are taking along. Consider renting a self storage unit with Storage King for the items you plan to leave behind. Start and finish the decluttering process before you leave, rather than on arrival at your destination.
