Just a few reminders before your moving

Are you about to move from your country to another one for the first time? It can be a stressful decision and requires a lot of organisation. You may need some help to remember every detail. Find out here what are the most important steps.

Get the administrative follow-up done

The first thing to do is to make sure the country of arrival has special agreements with your own. You will then be allowed to stay for an indefinite period, but also buy a house and work as soon as you arrive. When the time comes, make sure you have all the paperwork (passport, special visa for the whole family and pets, driver's licence, and so on) ready on time.

When your decision is final and you are ready for your new life, you should check with your family doctor if you need any vaccine three months before your departure. This is also the time to ask your children’s old school for the document which will be required for another registration. Likewise, if you have a pet, you will also need the record of vaccination. Furthermore, you will need to respect the pet transport rules of the boat or plane company. This is also the time to decide if you will open or not a bank account in the country you settle in.

Prepare the actual move

Start by sorting out your belongings before anything else. Indeed, this step is an important one in any removal but is of crucial importance when moving into another country or another continent. No one wants to move with unnecessary belongings that will cost you to ship and take place in your new home. The key here is to keep only what is of absolute necessity. Once this step is accomplished, you can tidy up and place them in boxes. We advise you to identify every box to make sure that you will find once you move in your new home. One month prior to the departure, make sure you have the insurances which protect you from breakage problems.

Choose your moving company

Make a list of professional removal firms – whether in your departure and host country – that are used to provide that kind of service. Contact them to get a quote request with all the services included and the price and ask them how they handle the transport of fragile items. Some of them will help you with a "to-do list" containing any administrative formality and when you have to fulfil them.

Tips to choose your moving package

professional mover packing

Many moving companies usually offer the same basic packages that include the removal of all your belongings from your current home and the setup in the new one. In other words, expert movers will load the truck and transport your goods and furniture safely.

Those companies might also interest you in premium offers, giving you more options and a much more comprehensive service. Those packages often include the packing into boxes, the dismantling and re-assembling of your furniture, and so on. If you are travelling with very fragile items (such as a piano or other musical instruments, glass furniture, or work equipment), do not forget to mention it to your company, as they might not offer international moving or transportation of professional items (industry or office equipment, archives...).

If you don't have the time or know organisation is not your thing, you could be interested in one of these comprehensive packages: you'll receive help from experienced movers, who can organise and use different tools properly such as a van, a lift and so on. Moreover, it is a way to make sure all your valuable and fragile items are moved with caution thanks to special packing.

Even when you don't choose the special packages, your expert is available to give you extra tips. Is it your first move? Then, do not hesitate to ask for a list of all the steps you have to fulfill: for example, when is it time to tell your electricity supplier, your internet provider, your insurance companies that you are about to leave your place or even what are the things you should pack first, what documents you will need the day of your move.

Do not forget to contact the company at least three months in advance if you want to ensure you can book the day that suits you the best. Around the same timeframe, make sure you inform your lessor that you're leaving the apartment or the house in case there is any notice period. From there, you have a few months to carry out any necessary repairs.

When you move out, it is often time for a big sort out. You have kept so many things you don't use or don't even know you still have. If you don't want to keep everything, you can give away clothes, books and even household devices to charities in your surroundings. If you have damaged furniture, contact the bulky waste service or check the day you can leave them outside your door.

Make your removal easier in Brussels

Whether you chose to move in a house or in an apartment, you might want to use a lift in order to drop your furniture and heavy goods on the right floor without using the stairs or the elevator. This is an operation that would otherwise result difficult for you and also that might damage your stairwell.

You're also probably aware that, in big cities, and especially in Brussels, the traffic is quite dense. That is the reason why your removal company will advise you to call a lift service company. Those experts will book a place to park just in front of your new home so that you will not be disturbed by cars during the whole process.

Be organised

Most of the time, when you are beginning to pack your belongings, you suddenly realise you own many more things than you thought you had. In order not to be overwhelmed, it is important to be organised. There is a precise order in which you have to plan a removal. First things first, have a look at your furniture, your clothes, decorative items, and so on. Are they still in good condition? Do you really need it? Will it match your new home? At this stage, you might want to sort out your things and give, sell or throw away everything that is not absolutely necessary. When you begin packing things, put heavy objects in small boxes, so that it will be easier to move and it will prevent tearing. Finally, if you pack all your cables together, do not hesitate to use colours in order to identify the matching device.
