3 Essentials of International Moving, Rochester, New York

International moving is an exciting, albeit scary, commitment. Whether your spouse was transferred at work, you're moving to be closer to family, or you simply desire to see another part of the world, relocating to an entirely new country is an adventure. Without the proper preparation, however, the process can be overwhelming. Becker Movers, a moving company located in Rochester, NY, advises expats to educate themselves on the essentials of international moving to make the process easier and stress free.

Before moving day, make sure you:

  • international movingCheck & Double Check Paperwork: Before you can start your life in another country, you must complete the required paperwork, including visa and passport forms, for both the country you are coming from and the one you are moving to. You will also be dealing with global money transfers, ensuring you meet the health requirements, and obtaining the proper documentation for any pets that are coming along. Before boarding the plane, make sure you have every piece of paperwork completed properly.

  • Understand the Cost of Living: Depending on where you reside in the world, the average yearly cost of living differs. Be sure you have researched and understand the cost of living in your new country to ensure you have the appropriate funds. Start saving the moment you decide to move.

  • Take Care of Your Health: Ask your doctor about any extra vaccinations you may need to live in a foreign country. It’s also a good idea to see which physicians your embassy recommends so you’ll have a doctor in your new city. Read about the different plants, animals, and insects in your new country in case you need to take any preparations before you go to get your body used to the germs you’ll encounter. 

By taking these simple steps, you’ll ensure your move is exciting rather than overly stressful. For international moving services in Rochester, turn to Becker Movers.
