What you need to know as a newcomer

Several reasons may lead you to settle in Brussels. Maybe you found an interesting job or you decided to follow your partner or maybe you just fell in love with the capital of Europe! If this is your case, you already know that moving abroad is a big change. And Brussels has its highlights: it is a vibrant, welcoming and multicultural city. When taking public transportation, you will always hear different languages. First things first, you need to know that Belgium has three official languages (French, Dutch and German). Moreover, many European or international organisations are located here, attracting many expats. But as you have not arrived yet, you should try and benefit from the help of a professional mover in order to give a good start to your new life .

It is always the case, but preparation is of the essence when moving into another country. Make sure to select the items and clothes that you want to take with you before leaving your home country. As everything will probably take the train, plane or boat, we recommend that you try to reduce as much as possible the volume of your belongings. You might also be able to find and buy some items here in Belgium.

What to do immediately after your arrival

When all your personal belongings are in place, it is time to visit the office of your local authorities. Indeed, you have 8 days to register at your local town hall. This is where you can apply for a residence permit. Nevertheless, the procedure to get it may take a few months. As a non-European person, you will have to bring your long-stay visa and to apply for a work permit as well.

During this process, the local police will drop by your place to ask you some questions and see where you live, what your job is, etc. It is a simple and usual enquiry. Do not forget to put your name on your doorbell and your letter box so the police officer can find you easily! Once everything is in order, you will get an electronic ID card.

The following steps consist in opening a bank account, subscribing to a healthcare program (if not provided by your employers) and taking out insurances for your house, car, etc.

What removal services can you expect in Brussels?

The experts available in a professional removal company are ready to offer their experience for a large number of services. Their help is welcome even before the day of the removal on its own, but also after having moved your goods from one place to another. The goal is to provide an all-inclusive service for your entire satisfaction:

  • relocations: complete service to help you during your relocation from one country to another; it may include the search for a new place, assistance for the lease contract, and so on.
  • packing & unpacking: all your goods and pieces of furniture can be packed and unpacked by experienced removers.
  • loading & unloading: the removers will carefully load all your goods in a removal van and arrange them in your new home.
  • moving: it is the most usual service offered, the moving van will transport all your stuff to your new place.
  • furniture storage: you can benefit the storage of your belongings during one week until several years.
  • operating a lift, so that you don't have to use stairs or the elevator; it is essential for all the people who move in an apartment or have more than a floor.
  • reassemble your pieces of furniture; therefore you can use them and tidy up everything as soon as you have moved in.

Every moving company offers the removal from a place to another, as well as the re-assembling of furniture. Nevertheless, some people don't have the time or the sense of organisation to fulfil every task. Indeed, if you need help, do not hesitate to take advantage of their comprehensive package: you'll receive the help of experienced men that can organise and use properly the different tools such as the van, the lift and so on. Moreover, all your valuable and fragile items can be moved with caution thanks to special packing. If you are moving out for the first time, it may be useful to ask your provider if he has some pieces of advice for you. Quite often, they dress a list including all the steps you have to follow and when to fulfil them. 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. At the same date, you'd better have to warn your lessor that you leave the apartment in case there is any notice period. From there, you have a few months to carry out any repairs needed.

Then, the company provide you a list with valuable tips: when to inform your electricity supplier, your internet provider, your insurance companies, what to pack at the very end, the documents you will need on hand, etc. Finally, they have some pieces of advice for the day before (switch off all electrical devices and the heating) and how to prepare for the moving day.

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 pieces of furniture, you'd better have to contact the bulky waste service or check the day you can just leave them outside your door.

Make your removal easier in Brussels

Whether you chose to move in a house or in an apartment, you will probably need 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.

Nevertheless, in big cities, and especially in Brussels, the traffic is quite dense. This is why your removal company will advise you to call a lift services 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 as long as your removal lasts.

Be organised

When you’re planning to move out of your house or out your apartment, this is the moment you realise you have way more goods than you thought you had. That is the reason why, you need to keep organised.

First things first, you should sort out your stuff and give, sell or throw away everything you don’t need anymore. 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.
