Planning and Preparation

On this page, we list the important aspects of any overseas removals. And remember, we’re on hand to offer advice and guidance based on our knowledge and experience.

  • Immediately Embrace the Declutter!

  • Don’t Forget the Three Rs

  • Financial Considerations

  • Visas and Important Documentation

  • Working with Our Removal Company


Before packing, be ruthless about your belongings. Sell, donate, or recycle items you no longer need. This will reduce the volume of items you need to ship, which will save on removal costs and free you from the burden of excess possessions in your new life.

The Three Rs – Research, Research, Research!

Immerse yourself in information about your new home. Explore customs regulations for importing personal belongings. Familiarise yourself with the cost of living, housing options, and healthcare systems. The more prepared you are, the easier the transition.

Financial Considerations

House removals overseas have various financial implications. Factor in shipping costs, currency exchange rates, potential temporary accommodation needs, and any additional expenditure associated with the move. If you’re unsure, we’re happy to help.

Visas and Documentation

Understand the importance of securing the proper visa for your destination country. The process can be time-consuming, so factor this into your schedule as you could wait months for the paperwork. In the meantime, use our storage facility and get packing.

Working with Aspen Movers
