Don’t take what you don’t need
Don’t take what you don’t absolutely need. You should consider what’s necessary to take and what isn’t. The more you bring, the more it’s going to cost.
Furnished vs non-furnished apartment
While bringing more items may increase the shipping costs, it can actually work out cheaper than renting a furnished apartment. It is important to research the cost of furnished apartments in the city you’re moving to and decide whether it’s most cost-effective to ship your furniture or rent a furnished apartment.
Ask your employer what they can do for you
If you’ve got a job lined up on the other side, ask what your employer can do for you. They may be able to help facilitate your move.
Think about sea vs air freight
When moving your items overseas, there are two shipping options: sea freight and air freight.
Sea freight is the more affordable option; however, it can take anywhere between 4 weeks and 4 months to get your belongings. Air freight is the quicker yet more expensive option and it might save you money in the long run as you won’t have to go out and buy furniture or clothes because your sea freight hasn’t arrived yet.
