International Packing Tips
As an expert international move manager, we believe it is our responsibility to help our customers in any way we can with their international move.
Packing alone is a big task that requires complete attention to detail. Along with our packing services, following the simple packing tips below can help you maximize your packing process and help you prepare your possessions for international shipping:
- Create an International Packing Checklist: Write down everything that needs to be accomplished during the packing process. Use this list to prioritize each task including items such as sorting, gathering packing material, hiring a packing and moving company, etc.
- Research Shipping Solutions: International shipments require special attention and can be handled in one of the three following ways. Review what option will work best for you.
- Wooden shipping crates known as lift vans.
- Steamship containers, which are made of steel and limited in the number of sizes available. In this case, the volume of a shipment will determine the size of the container used.
- Air freight boxes, which are typically used for smaller shipments or for items that need to arrive at the destination country within a short timeframe.
- Only Carry Essentials on You: Go through each item and determine whether it is “essential” or “non-essential.” Essentials are typically the things you can’t live without each day such as your credit card, license, toothbrush, etc. These items will stay on you when moving. All “non-essentials” such as seasonal clothing, furniture, other electronics, etc., can be packed and shipped.
