How to Avoid Damaged Cargo When Moving Abroad
Moving to a new house can be very exciting for all family members. Moving to a new house, making new friends, and maybe even landing that dream job you’ve always wanted while the kids attend a new school can be an awesome experience. But when you’re about to relocate to a different country overseas, that can cause twice the excitement, for the change is greater and more meaningful.
Moving abroad can be scary too. After all, you are about to move to a country you don’t know, where they speak a language you don’t understand yet, with different rules and laws, different culture and different habits. But that’s not the only cause for that fear, you’re also afraid for your belongings. Shipping them to a new, far away country can keep you on an edge until you’re certain everything has arrived in one piece.
Shipping Boxes Internationally
If you don’t want to worry too much about your belongings, and want to make sure you’re fully covered, there are few simple things you should do:
- First, find a professional moving company, licensed and certified, that offers to provide a wide range of moving services, including shipping and packing services.
- Then, make sure that in the packing process, all packed objects are properly packed and wrapped if necessary, and are placed in a package that fits their size.
- You can ask the moving company for packing services, and get professional packing solutions by well trained and experienced packers.
- When shipping boxes internationally, it is strongly recommended to purchase insurance for your belonging. That way, if anything goes wrong you’ll be covered.
- Mark each and every box with a short description such as: fragile, very fragile, kitchen, kids’ room, etc. That will not only help the movers protect your belongings better, but it will also help you unpack your things more quickly and more efficiently in the new house.
