Managing a move over a long period of time is always complicated. It takes a lot of organization, time, and especially good advice to succeed this step without problem. Here are some answers to guide you in this long process.
An international move over several months
Where to live during your move?
If your move is over a period of several months, it is likely that your next home is not immediately available … Do not panic if it is the case because there are different solutions to this problem
- B & Bs and lodges: sites like bedandbreakfasts.com, airbnb.com, or bedycasa.com will help you find a homestay for rent.
- You will find a place to live in a hostel in case you are a student.
- Another solution is available to you, the hotel's apartment that can accommodate you if you are hurrying by time and want to be hosted in the city of your new home.
Where to store furniture during a move?
You have found accommodation, but you don’t know what to do with your furniture … The use of furniture storage will keep your goods safe.
There are two types of storage: in hangar, or container. The duration of the storage can vary depending on what you want for a few days, several months, or even years. However, once your goods are stored, you will not be able to have access to them for the duration of the storage. If you prefer to have access to your furniture when you want, there is the solution to “self-storage”. You take care of carting, transporting and organizing your storage space. Moving equipment and commercial vehicle rental offers are often proposed. The company only deals with the provision of boxes and handling equipment, as well as their supervision. The security of your property is ensured 24/7.
Compare the rates
Once your type of furniture storage selected, you must evaluate the need for storage of your furniture and finally compare the prices of several providers because the differences are sometimes important. Do not forget to add to the basic rate the price of the insurance, and possibly the administration fees and related services.

FAQ | Long international move
Is it advisable to relocate during the winter?
Moving out in the cold can have its drawbacks. First, since ice is a big concern, if you do it by yourself, it may take longer than it would have done in any other season. However, if you ask for a corporation, you could get a reasonable price, but it will take a little longer since there will be more obstacles. So it's a bit of a gamble, but you can always try.
How can I calculate the volume of my boxes?
In general, you'll know the volume of a cardboard box when you purchase it; just add it to the volume of your inboxed items, and you'll have a rough estimate. Now, when it comes to refrigerators and the like, you can look up the model number and see how much space they take up.
I need to relocate a few items; how can I do it on the cheap?
If you don't have any furniture, renting a truck isn't necessary as long as you have a vehicle to transport your boxes. It's just fine. However, if you need to move substantial items, such as a refrigerator, you'll almost certainly need to hire one.
I recently did some research on a new local moving business; can I trust it?
Try to gather a few pieces of information to check whether they're trustworthy; some companies provide excellent working conditions and may yet offer a competitive price. You are free to do so as long as you are satisfied with what they have to offer.
