People are more likely to forget when they are in stressful situations. Moving abroad with all your belongings to an unknown future is as stressful. As the moving date draws closer, more things need to be completed. You could forget to gather your things or hire a babysitter. For a smooth relocation, it is essential to have a to-do list of all the frequent items individuals forget to pack and complete before traveling overseas. 

To ease things for your move, we've compiled a list of all things vital, so you have one less thing to worry about. Also, there are many apps that can help you organise your move too, but our list is short, concise, and to the point. 

Start by comparing the quotes from the various international moving companies. 

Make sure you get free quotes from at least three different businesses. Make a list of everything you want to transfer in an inventory format. Ask about the movers' complete or partial packing services, storage facilities, and foreign car shipment options.

Knowing more about what each international moving business offers can help you decide. 

After picking a moving company, run a background check.

The most crucial step in choosing a company is conducting a final background check. This is to be sure your expensive goods will be in skilled and trustworthy hands. Start by looking up the company's credentials for licensure. You may view the mover's profile and see if they have permission to transport household items abroad by using this number. The number also gives you access to the mover's profile.

Organize your important documents and keep them in one designated area 

Your top priority when moving overseas is to remember to bring all necessary travel papers.

As a result, you should gather and arrange all the required papers. Choose an area in the house where everything will be stored until the moving day. Here is some of the paperwork you need:

  • Visa
  • Passport
  • Driver's license
  • Social security cards
  • Birth certificates
  • Medical records
  • Marriage or divorce certificates
  • Work permit 

Select a desk drawer, a shelf in your house, or an accordion folder to store the papers. 

Notify all important people and companies of your relocation 

Imagine you move to the other part of the world and still getting charged for the monthly subscription to Vogue magazine that's getting delivered to your old apartment. As insane as that sounds, it's pretty standard. Unfortunately, people, in the stress of moving and packing, forget to cancel their subscriptions. To avoid this, we've listed all the subscriptions you should cancel before moving overseas.

There can be severe consequences if you fail to remember to inform specific people and businesses of your relocation. If invoices and mail continue to come to your previous address, it can even affect your finances. So take some time and get everyone who needs to know that you'll soon be moving to a new place of residence aware of your plans before you start packing delicate goods and storing expensive possessions. The following people should be informed: 

Your gym

Invoices will keep stacking on your gym membership. 

Your magazine and newspaper subscription

The same for your magazine and newspaper subscription. You will keep getting charged unless you talk to the companies and get unsubscribed. 

Utility provider

Paying for utilities for an apartment that you don't even live in? In this climate? It couldn't be us. 

Wifi and TV 

These are at the bottom of the list because they should be the last thing you unsubscribe from before leaving. Wifi and TV are what everyone uses up until the previous day.
