How to Pack for an International Move
Considering a move abroad? Gathering your belongings and planning for an international move doesn’t have to be a daunting task. Using the following list will help get you organized and ensure that you’re ready for an overseas move.
|Make a list and sort things that you need to take, leave behind or buy.|
|Sell or donate to charity items that you do not need or cannot take.|
|Buy things that will be unavailable or are less expensive in your home country.|
|Pick up or return items such as dry cleaning and library books.|
