People who have been planning to move to another country from Boston have had their relocation put on hold during the pandemic. Travel to and from many international destinations has been suspended. Things will eventually open back up, but when and how is an open question. Here are some tips to make things less stressful for yourself, if you’re in the position of needing to move internationally now:
Use International Shipping to Make Your Move Simpler & Cheaper
We all know that international shipping takes a long time, but while you’re waiting for the borders to open, your stuff can be shipped ahead of you. If you choose this option, work with a Boston shipping company that specializes in international shipments: they’ll help you take care of all of the complicated paperwork & make sure your stuff is properly packed and insured.
Find a Reliable News Source About Conditions in Your Destination Country
While you’re in the US, it’s relatively easy to keep abreast of pandemic related regulations here. The same may not be true in your destination country. It is a really good idea to find someone who can let you know what the situation is on the ground there so you can make and adjust plans as needed. Maintaining situational awareness is critical to making your move happen smoothly.
Consider Storage as a Smart Way to Save Money
If your international move can’t happen just yet, and you need a safe, affordable place to keep your stuff, talk to your Boston moving company about storage options. Storing your items takes the stress of caring for them off your plate & can make it possible to choose more affordable living accommodations while you are awaiting your opportunity to move. If you have questions about this option, or need more information including pricing, give us a call. We’d be happy to answer all of your questions.
