Here's What You Need to Know About Moving Internationally
Moving to a new country can be difficult for many reasons. So it is even more important
that you are properly prepared for your international move. It's not just about
finding the right mover, but making sure your health, medical status, and cultural
understanding are in order as well. Here are some of the things to consider when
making a move abroad:
International movers must be licensed by the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC).
They should be licensed with a tariff and bond.
The FMC only regulates movers who travel overseas (so a ground move to Mexico or
Canada are not regulated by them).
Consider having a professional help you pack since transport may be more rough than
a typical ground move.
Make sure you do research regarding visas and any travel restrictions before you
See a doctor before you move and find out if any immunizations are recommended for
the country you are moving to.
Learn about your new country's culture so you can have a better idea of what it
means to fit in there.
