Many people will tell you that a move is a move, whether it’s local or international. They’ll explain that packing up a home takes just as much effort, as does the unpacking at the other end. The only difference will be the length of transit of your possessions. This isn’t true at all, as there are many different moving pieces involved in an international move. For example, your removal van will be crossing borders if it’s travelling by land, and will be entering a new country’s harbour if your goods are travelling on a ship. This takes a lot of paperwork, and will be further complicated as the UK separates from the EU and more regulations and control might be introduced. It’s essential that you are partnering with a company that has a depth of experience in this area and knows exactly how to get your overseas move completed smoothly.
What to look for in an overseas removals company in Exeter?
For a start, you need to partner with a removals company that has good experience in organizing international moves. It might be that the company can transport your possessions as far as the harbour and will then arrange with another company to pick up the container and transport it to your final destination. Repeatable companies who have a good track record in arranging these overseas moves will have established partners around the world that they work with, and will have formed relationships with people that they trust.

Other areas to consider
Regardless of their history, you should always enquire about the level and type of insurance that is offered – particularly if your possessions will be transferred from one company to another. Who will take ultimate responsibility and who should be held accountable if anything goes wrong? In the UK, it’s a good idea to find a company that is registered with the British Association of Removers, so you know that they operate according to certain standards and that you will have recourse if you’re unhappy. Knowing how long a company has been in operation and the security system that will protect your goods is also very important. For an overseas move, knowing exactly what the process will be and an accurate idea of the arrival time of the crew, and other details of each stage of the move will give you peace of mind.
