We’ve partnered up with Eagle Relocation, experts in relocation, to let you know our top tips for making that move.
Always plan your move in advance
It is always better to be over prepared in these situations. Often people can leave their move all until the last minute, meaning corners are cut or things are forgotten, the earlier you organise and schedule your move the better.
Always make sure you get a survey
This will prevent individuals being faced with hidden charges within the moving process. At Eagle Relocations, we make it mandatory for clients to receive one before their move in order to save issues further down the line.
Always insure your shipment
With belongings often spending over 6 weeks away from you, there are always things that can go wrong that are out of peoples control. It is always better to be on the safe side.
Always move with a BAR approved mover
Companies that are BAR approved must adhere to a code of conduct, they must use high quality materials. and fully trained staff If anything was to go wrong with your move, you have protection via an independent ombudsman.
Always have your items professionally packed
Leave it to the experts. When packing valuables and breakables it is crucial to pack them in a certain way in order to best protect them from any damage. It is worth spending that little bit extra to ensure your most valuable items arrive in one piece.
Use a broker when moving money abroad
When it comes to moving money overseas and relocating, cost can be high. We recommend using a broker as a bank could charge anywhere up to 5%. This can be a significant charge considering the same service is offered. Moving overseas can be expensive, dont let your money cost you more.
