International Moving Checklist

Moving Checklist with Allied International

Moving internationally can often be a complicated and stressful experience– specifically not knowing where to begin. Making a list, and also a timeline, for your move is a great starting spot though. Here are some helpful pointers to get you going.

A Few Months Before Relocating

There are several things you can do to help get ready. For example, you will want to choose exactly what you want to do with your current living arrangement: sublet, sell, or end your lease. You will also want to do some research on the country that you are moving to, such as examining quarantine laws, international health insurance coverage, and finding an international moving company, like Allied International. On that note, you will want to make applications for visas and other international documents, as well as, making copies of important documents pertaining to your family like birth certificates, marriage license, and medical data. You may have to give notice to your children’s school so they can get school records together. You will also want to find out if your family will be moving at the same time as you, or sometime after.

There are still more steps to take. You will want to alert the post office, credit card companies, and your banking institution of your move. You will also want to find out of your bank has branches in your new location. Also, you should check with your current employer on how your insurance and direct deposit will translate into a new country. Furthermore, check with your doctor to see if you can get any contact lenses and prescription drugs early, in case you run out before finding a new doctor. In that case, you should also learn the generic names for drugs you take so you can find them abroad. You can also think about having a yard sale so you can cut down on the amount of items you have to pack and move.

A Few Weeks Before Your Move

Hopefully you will be on schedule and taking care of some little things here and there. Things like, making sure your friends and family have your new address, making sure your pets are immunized and have the proper documentation you need, and contacting any other companies you pay regular bills for to inform them of your move. You can also continue to downsize your items so you will not have to move too many things, especially clutter you have accumulated over the years. Perhaps the two biggest things would be tidying your home so it looks good when it hits the market, and of course packing your things.

Other Documents to Bring

No matter where you are relocating, the following documents will be necessary for you to take with you. You will want to get these documents together early in your planning, so you will not be scrambling around at the last minute. These documents include: passports, travel documents, tax documents, insurance papers, school transcripts, medical records, driver’s licenses, adoption paperwork, divorce records and of course any birth or marriage certificates.
