What do you need to bear in mind when moving furniture overseas?
Moving abroad is one of those things that generally sounds extremely exciting to many of us - at least until the time to actually move arrives, when we discover just how stressful it can be as well.
While we can't cover all of the things that you could possibly forget about when moving furniture overseas within a single short blog post, the below are some of the 'big ones'.
Sometimes, it's best to just buy new
Switching your residence to an entirely new country is surely as obvious a chance as you can get to 'wipe the slate clean' and start afresh. Is it necessarily wise to bring along those cheap, heavily scratched bedside cabinets or the chest of drawers that literally falls apart whenever you use it?
You need to be ruthless here, as the money you could save leaving behind those things you don’t really need or want could leave you enough to buy them new when you arrive in your new country, making for a less stressful experience during the packing process .
Don't move everything if your relocation is temporary
Many people move overseas knowing full well that they may only be in that country for a few months or a year before heading home. If that's the case for you, does it make much financial or practical sense to bring literally everything?
This is where you should weigh up the respective costs of transporting versus storing some of your furniture back home. It may be that you expect to spend some time in temporary accommodation when you first arrive in your new country, thereby making the storage of some of the larger pieces of furniture a 'no brainer' while you look for more permanent living quarters.
Simpsons provide medium to long term storage solutions at affordable prices.
Packing can be much more arduous than you think
Packing your furniture items for a major move is about so much more than simply wrapping everything up and putting some of the smaller pieces in boxes. Export packing and wrapping of your goods by removal experts is always recommended.
Have you, for example, asked your remover to measure all of your furniture beforehand so that you know the volume of your move is likely to be?
Simpsons will export pack and wrap, label each box and furniture item, and provide you with a detailed inventory so that you're aware of what it contains.
Would you like to lower much of the stress associated with moving furniture overseas? In that case, you really need to get in touch with Simpson Removals. Call us on 0800 515 930 now for a quote.

Don’t forget these 3 things when moving house
As your friendly home moving services provider, here at Simpsons Removals, we would hate for you to forget to do any of the things you need to do when you are packing up and getting ready to call a new place home.
The below list is not an exhaustive one, but nonetheless covers three of the things that those moving home most frequently forget.
- Letting people know you’re moving
You might be surprised by the number of people who end up walking into a house that they thought was still occupied by a close friend or family member of theirs, only to be greeted by a stranger – all because the former occupant didn’t even let them know they were leaving.
Even if there’s no chance of the above happening, it is still important to notify your bank, utility providers, doctor, creditors and employer of your new address, so that the next occupant of the property doesn’t need to keep forwarding letters to you long after you’re gone.
- Taking final meter readings
It’s an unglamorous task, but it’s nonetheless vital to take water, gas and electricity meter readings at your property and let your suppliers know prior to the move.
This is easier to do than you might think – utility companies tend to have ‘change of address’ forms on their websites, or at least make it easy for you to call and email them with the essential details.
It’s normally possible to move into a new property with the gas and electricity companies that you’re already signed up with – in which case, you just need to let them know and they will arrange the switch.
- Applying for a parking permit
One other frequently overlooked must-do among homeowners who also have a car is to check whether they are moving to a residents-only parking area, and if so, apply for a parking permit prior to the move, so that they can park legally outside the property as soon as they arrive.
You will need to request a parking permit from your local council, or if it is a private residential parking scheme, directly through the company that runs it.
Remember that here at Simpsons, we are dedicated to taking the stress out of your home move so that you can quickly turn your focus to enjoying life in your new home. Request your free removals quote from us today, or give us a call to ask any questions that you may have about our service.
