Stay constantly prepared for military moving
October 20, 2014
If you’re in the military, you know you could be deployed to a different base at a moment’s notice. As such, you need to be vigilant at all times and be in a constant state of readiness to pack up and go. This can be difficult with a family in tow, but a good plan and some reliable out of state movers will help ease any transition. Here are some tips to integrate with your daily life to ensure moves won’t take too long.
Keep receipts for everything related to your military moving, even well after the movers have brought everything into your new home. Many costs, including gas and supplies along the way, may be reimbursed by the military. Don’t expect to have to pay for everything until you’ve been told otherwise.
Make sure your kids understand you might have to move very quickly. Of course, you don’t want them to avoid making friends or enjoying themselves. However, preparing them for the fact you might be deployed elsewhere is kinder than avoiding the issue and springing it on them at the last minute.
Maintain a storage space somewhere you trust. There are some items, such as family heirlooms or memorabilia you probably don’t want to have with you until you’re much more settled. Keep them at a family member’s house or in a storage facility near a good friend or relative who is less prone to moving than you are.

3 more moving and packing tips for international relocations
February 27, 2013
Moving out of state is a breeze compared to moving abroad. International relocations require people to file mountains of paperwork with foreign and domestic governments before they can start finalizing their plans. Expatriates must go to great lengths to ensure that they are allowed to move.
Consider the following moving and packing tips when you’re planning an international relocation. Failure to take these steps may prevent you from leaving your country for a new one.
Apply for traveler’s insurance
Traveler’s insurance is a necessity when going on a trip, but it is doubly important when moving to a foreign land. According to Lifehacker, many governments will not allow expats to stay if they do not have coverage. The news source writes that traveler’s insurance is required to obtain a visa in most countries.
In most cases, foreign relocation boards will only approve your residency for the length of your insurance policy. For instance, if you only have a year of coverage, you can only live abroad for that same time period. Research various policies and determine how long you will need coverage. You can always cancel your insurance if you need to move home.
See your doctor
Lifehacker also points out that countries have different healthcare systems and that traveler’s insurance does not cover emergencies. Expatriates are surprised when they cannot receive the same treatments that they do at home. Additionally, the bills will be much steeper due to the lack of insurance.
Visit your primary physician months before you move. Undergo a complete exam to ensure that there are no major health problems that could hinder your international relocation plans. Schedule your appointment months before yourhousehold moving company is slated to arrive. This lead time ensures that you have time to address any medical concerns before you leave.
Research citizenship requirements
When you move out of state, you have to change your address with the post office and update your driver’s license. The Matador Network notes that international relocations feature similar tasks, but you have to be careful not to forget any of your responsibilities.
Research citizenship and temporary residency requirements before filling out any paperwork. The news source recommends retaining these documents in case you need to extend your stay.
Be aware of financial requirements. Some countries like New Zealand require expatriates to earn a minimum income to gain citizenship. Ensure that your finances are in order so you can move to the country of your choice.
