If you need to move residence to another city or town in your country, then you know just how de-stabilizing and daunting that experience can be, if you are like most people. It is therefore not very difficult to imagine just how much more of a hustle it can be to move residence to another city in another country. Getting involved with the careful packing, transporting, shipping, customs issues and other matters related to moving to another country can be a lot to think about and go through without the right help and support systems. With that said, you can make the process less stressful and daunting with some useful and very effective steps. Below are some of the steps that you should consider.

First of all, you need to start the packing process well in advance of the time when you need to make the move to your new residence. Depending on the items that you need to move and the flexibility of time that you have to make the move, you should start by preparing a schedule of tasks and activities to ensure that you don’t have any last minute rushes. If for instance you own a boat that you need to export it to your new resident country, it may be better to have someone hold on to it for a while as you settle down, before you can import a boat from your new resident country. The same goes for shipping a car and other very bulky things that you may not need immediately. As you do the planning, start collecting packaging material including boxes and garbage bags that you will use to pack your belongings. If you have time, you can look for cheap or free packaging boxes to cut down some of your costs. The next step will then be to determine what you want to keep from your current belongings and what you need to purge. Once you decide what you want to keep, you can hold a garage sale and make some money from the staff that you don’t need, you could donate to charity or you could simply dispose of what you don’t need.

Apart from boat shipping or car shipping where you may have to be intricately involved in the process, it may also be better for you to find an international shipper to get involved with the details of the international shipment of your personal belongings. Doing so will take a big headache off your hands and leave the professionals to handle these affairs. Of course it will be vital to engage a shipping or logistical company that you can trust to handle these matters for you. If you want to maintain a good mental image of the things that you have in your home, it will be a good idea to take photos of the stuff that you have in different rooms and then to pack the stuff according to the rooms where you want to keep things.
