What are the most significant differences between domestic and international relocations?

If you’re contemplating an overseas move, the relocation process presents many challenges that our international movers in New York are well-equipped to deal with.  As a result, an international relocation can be very stressful.  Consequently, there are some very significant differences between moving domestically and overseas other than the distance and shipping methods involved.  The biggest differences include:

  • Considerably more time-consuming planning and preparation – unlike moving within US boundaries, an international relocation requires planning well in advance of your moving date and additional preparation.
  • Culture shock – keep in mind that you’re moving thousands of miles from your home country to a foreign land. Because you’ll be in the midst of different cultures and customs, planning your move will be more complicated.  Consequently, NYC Movers & Packers suggests doing some research about the country you are moving to.
  • Customs regulations – unlike moving domestically, international moves require that you have the proper customs papers and a passport. Plus, every country has different rules and regulations regarding prohibited and restricted items.  Other important items that you may need include proof of your overseas relocation and the value of the household items that are moving with you.
  • Registration – domestic moving companies are required to have a US Department of Transportation number whereas international movers need to be registered with the FMC or Federal Maritime Commission and be affiliated with the IAM or International Association of Movers.
  • Systematic approach – it’s obvious that you don’t want to be moving unnecessary items only to discover that you didn’t need them in your new location. This is the time to start organizing and reducing your belongings.  This will result in a less costly international move, especially when customs fees are charged for certain items.

Granted, there are the above significant differences involved when moving overseas.  However, don’t forget that you’re moving from one country to another.  But no matter if you’re moving 500 or 5,000 miles, the fear of moving to a foreign country can cause a person to be anxious and fearful about what they’re doing.  The best way for you to combat these emotions is to be excited about moving to a new home and maintaining a positive attitude about it. And we are here to help you. From planning your move, documentation process to helping you pack and move to the new country, we’ll be with you every step of the way.
