Planning your move

Planning a successful international move is a bit like building a house. All the key elements have to be co-ordinated in a single operation.

Packing, for example, requires careful thinking, particularly if you want to move your car or antiques. In order to minimise hotel expenses, the shipment may be split so that essentials are delivered by air.

Co-ordination will be needed with agents handling shipping, customs clearance and final delivery. The broader issues of housing, schooling, transfer of pets, dealing with different languages, cultures, local regulations and import duties must be professionally addressed, too.
