When you’re thinking about moving abroad, there are probably a load of things that you will be wanting answers to. There are so many different ways in which a move can go wrong, that when you throw an overseas relocation into the mix, it’s a recipe for disaster! Knowing exactly how to go about the process of transporting all of your belongings overseas is almost as daunting as setting up a new life in a foreign country, and when you have that to worry about as well, you’ll want to be reducing your stress as much as possible! The best idea is to hire a reliable NW1 moving company for hassle free international removals, as they will have the knowledge, experience and wherewithal to get your job done as efficiently as possible, saving you the heart attack inducing job of doing it yourself…

It all sounds fine and well if you can afford it right? I’m sure that most people will be thinking that they would certainly go forward with a removals company if they had the cash, but for some the expense is an unrealistic amount, as the idea of shelling out that much is just not on the cards. Well, if this is the case then there are a couple of things worth noting in this article, firstly, the fact that doing the move on your own can quickly become just as expensive, but more stressful than if you were to hire a removals company, and secondly, that there is another way to move abroad without needing to use the services of a NW1 mover, nor having to worry about it all yourself…

So, you’re thinking of doing it by yourself. The process will be a long one, but it is possible, the thing you have to weigh up with some consideration is the risk element. Will you be putting yourself out there in the face of so many possible problems that the whole thing starts to cost a lot more than you ever expected? You will need to spend a lot of time planning the move, working out the best ways in which to get everything done. This includes the careful packing of items, which can take quite a while, and also a lot of research in to how international shipping works. You may discover that you have quite difficult decisions to make about which way you get your items transported, as there can be lots of different factors to come to terms with, form weight restrictions, surcharges and speed, it will be hard to know which is best. You will also need to know the language of the country that you are heading to, which may not be a problem, as it could be one that speaks your tongue, or you may be fluent. If not however, then any problems that arise may well result in serious difficulty in trying to sort them out, as you will have to speak to many people, and explain to each of them what the issue is, or even find out from them what the issue is!

So… what have we learnt? If you want to do it yourself, then fine, but the problems that you could face and the expense of paying to sort them out will probably be more costly, and way more stressful than just hiring a movers in the first place. Or, you could just sell everything, and use the money to buy nice stuff when you’re at the new house!
