Moving from the United States to another country was never a super easy process, but by and large it was manageable, especially if you worked with an experienced international moving company. Factor Coronavirus into the mix, and things are now even more complex.
Any international move has two primary components: moving the people, and moving their things. Right now, it’s the people portion of this equation that’s especially complex.
Each country is taking its own approach to immigration during COVID. Before you embark on your expat adventure, you need to be really sure what you’re getting into. It is essential to ensure you can actually get into the country you’re moving to! If that’s a yes, make sure you’ve undergone any required testing here, and be prepared to be tested and required to quarantine when you arrive. Some other countries are much less flexible about quarantine compliance. This may mean coordinating with your new employer, if appropriate, so expectations are framed appropriately.
Moving household possessions internationally is, by comparison, a relative snap. The trick to making international moves simple and stress free is to work with an experienced international moving company in Boston who can handle the entire job for you. From planning to packing, shipping, and coordinating final delivery, our team can do it all for you.
It is never too soon to begin planning your international move. Many people who are moving out of the country radically downsize their possessions to keep costs down, but that’s not always the best option. Some items may be very expensive or impossible to replace in your new home country. It’s a good idea to check prices and availability in your new country before you decide to toss or give away things you’ll want to have later on.
