You have been tasked with moving away from everything you know and love for work – already an incredibly daunting task, which can only be made worse by not knowing where to start with the packing!
As a whole, the packing process can be stressful to say the least, even if just for a holiday so it can be completely overwhelming when you need to pack up your whole life. Whilst some of the items that you will need in your new country will be available to purchase, others may be more difficult to find or much more expensive abroad.
The first thing to do before you even begin packing is to prepare and organise your house. This is the perfect time for a ‘spring clean’ and de-clutter! Get rid of everything you don’t need – dispose of old clothing, broken tools, and old toys etc.
To make things a bit easier for anyone who is relocating, the Clearview Relocation team have put together the following ‘ultimate’ list of packing essentials.
Important documents for your international relocation
