When you decide to move overseas, you will need to review some international moving companies and choose one to handle the shipping of your goods.

Whybirds Removals and Storage is a premier moving company that offers a wide range of solutions, including packing, unpacking, transportation and storage.

No matter where you’re going, it’s a much smoother process if you know what to expect.

That’s why having some handy tips is always a great idea.

Here is some of the best advice from people who have moved overseas and know what it’s all about.


If you’re moving for your job, this step is already covered for you.

However, if you simply want to live somewhere else, it’s best to have a job lined up before you go. After all, you won’t be able to afford a home or necessities if you aren’t working.

Look at international job sites and share your CV or resume when you are interested in something.

That way you have a steady income when you get to your new country.

Go Through What You Have

Before you start packing, consider going through your belongings and weeding out the things you don’t want or need to take with you.

Donate or throw away the stuff you won’t be taking along and you’ll have a lot less hassle packing and unpacking it.

This saves time and stress when you have so many other things to do in regard to your big move.

Take Care of Practical Matters

This involves everything from getting healthcare to opening a new bank account to finding schools for your kids.

This is all important stuff and things you should take care of long before you get to your new country.

That way should someone get sick or hurt, you’re prepared and your kids won’t miss any school either.

Get started early so you aren’t having to deal with all of this at once.

Learn About Your New Home

It might not seem like a big deal, but you’ll be a lot happier in your new home if you are familiar with the neighbourhood and the culture.

Spend some time exploring and meeting your neighbours before you’re there permanently and you’ll enjoy your new home so much more when you get there.

Other things to do include locating a nearby supermarket and other places you’ll need to visit often.
