Things to Remember When Moving Overseas from Bath –
If you know the exact date of your relocation, you should book with Thomas Firbank as soon as possible. The reason for doing this is to ensure that you can guarantee the day and time when you ideally want to undertake the move. Another benefit of doing this early is that our team can assist you during the time leading up to your relocation.
It’s crucial that you only use a reliable removals company. And the industry standard accreditation for removals is being a member of BAR. Every business sector has their own certification board that oversees the quality of work. They are the go-to for any disputes and are there to protect consumer’s rights. If you don’t see the BAR affiliation, keep looking for a company that does. Thomas Firbank has BAR accreditation, in addition to our status as a member company of the Master Removers Group.
There are some practical things you should do before you leave the UK. Because your property is registered with your local authority, you’ll need to inform them of your date of departure. This will prevent you receiving any charges for council tax or other rates after you leave. Another task you will need to consider is contacting the authorities in the country you’re moving to. You’ll need to check if there are any visa or immigration requirements in advance of you set off.
The internet is an excellent way to do research, and you can learn a lot about your new home before you flu out there. However, it can never replace visiting the area. A decent amount of times to visit is between two and three. This will give you an idea of what your new location will be like when you move there. And while you’re there, it would also help if you can visit the seller or estate agent to check that everything is still on schedule. You will also need to do a final contact the week before you relocate to make sure everything is ready for your arrival.
And finally, remember to book your flights as early as you can. This will save you money, especially if you’re moving during the holidays. Prices will invariably be much higher during any festive celebrations.
Some Tips on Preparing for Your New Life Overseas –
If you’re moving to a country where English isn’t the first langue, you’ll need to start learning their language as soon as possible. If you already speak more than one language, you should be able to pick up another one easier than people who don’t. And don’t put this off until you get there, you’ll need to be able to hold a general conversation when you arrive. Being able to speak their language is vital for your integration.
You should also do as much research on your new town or city as possible. Get to know the different areas and the history of the area, in addition to the country. If you have some cultural references before you arrive, it will assist you in social situations. It might also help you avoid any awkward subjects and cultural mishaps.
If you have young children, you’ll need to start organising their new schools as soon as possible. The education system will no doubt be different to the UK, so start researching now to avoid any issues. Another vital part of your new life abroad will be healthcare. Go online and see what information you can find on your new country’s healthcare provisions. A lot of countries don’t have a system like the NHS, so you’ll need to factor in these costs.
If you want to prepare yourself for your new life, try going online to make new friends. There may be other people who are from the UK and live there. You should look for local interest groups on social media where you’ll no doubt find people you can befriend. Another piece of advice would be to try and plan your first month in your new area. See what sort of activities you and the family can do to make it as fun as possible.
