How does relocating internationally differ from moving domestically?
If you’re planning on moving to Colorado from the UK, the relocation process can be extremely challenging and frustrating if you try to attempt it without the help of the professionals at All American Movers. The main considerations when moving from the UK to the US are planning and preparation. There is a great deal more of this required when moving overseas compared to moving domestically. Here are some of the key differences between international and domestic moves to be aware of:
Advanced planning is a must – unlike moving domestically, an international move involves much more planning and preparation. So, it’s important to start on this well in advance of your proposed moving date
Customs regulations – customs papers and passports aren’t required when moving domestically. However, when moving internationally, you’ll need to have a passport, proof of international relocation, and a detailed value inventory of everything that you’re shipping to the US.
Organization – naturally, organizing is a part of domestic and international moves alike. It just takes more time when moving across the ocean to the US. By organizing and reducing the items you want to move with you, it will make things considerably easier.
