International Moving Tips: Do Not Pack Your Important Documents
Here’s what I’d like to share with all of you about packing.
Do not pack your important documents such as W-2s, birth certificate, income statement, tax returns, etc along with other household goods. Make sure you have all your documents with you in your carry-on luggage.
If you need to apply for a mortgage or other loan, no need to wait for the moving company to delivery your goods (which would take weeks!).
