Europe and International Relocations with Woods

Posted on January 1, 2018 by Shaun Vallance

At Woods Removals, we pride ourselves on being able to take on any removals job. No matter how big or small the job is, we move hundreds of customers in and out of Dorset every year. And by any type of removals job, we also mean people who are relocating to Europe or further afield.

Moving to a new city can be a stressful experience, so you can imagine what it’s like to move to a new country. The Woods Removals team are always looking for ways to help our followers prepare for their big move. That’s why we’ve put together some essential tips for relocating to Europe or Internationally.

Tips on Moving to a New Country –

If you have a destination in mind, then it’s time to get online and do as much research as possible. One place you should get the contact details for is the British Consulate in your new city. They will help with any issues that might arise, and they can assist with connecting you to the correct municipal departments.

One of the best pieces of advice we were told by a customer who lives abroad is to start learning the first language of the country you’re moving to as soon as possible. Although you’ll learn it by living and hearing it every day, the sooner you can ask basic questions the easier it will be to begin

Another solid piece of advice is to visit the area you’re moving to at least once, several times if you can afford it. It’s not a good idea to submit a bid for a property if you don’t know the city or town you’re moving to. Your visit will also be an excellent opportunity to test out your conversation skills and to visit the British Consulate in person.

Get a reliable estate agent, hopefully, one that is fluent in English and the first language of your new city. This will help you filter out unsuitable properties before you start viewing. They’ll also help you with any differences in property related law or inspections.

Last but not lease – remember to cancel all utility bills and local council before you move. The last thing you want to find out is that you’re still paying your utility bills or council tax.

Why It’s Important to Use a Reliable Company –

One of the most important things to remember when organising your move is to use reliable companies at every stage. It can sometimes be tempting to try and save money by using price comparison websites. However, with things like international removals you could fall into the trap of poor service. Quality of service is always better than companies that offer extremely low prices.

The best way to find reliable companies for removals is to check their online reviews and if they have accreditation. At Woods Removals, we’re fully BAR accredited, and we post our reviews on our website. If you’re struggling to find a company’s reviews or testimonials, that’s not a good sign.

It’s also vital that you use companies that you can contact throughout the moving process. That means being able to discuss your relocation when you’re still planning, all the way to the big day. A reliable removals company will be friendly and approachable at any time.
