Planning Your Move to the USA

Postby texkourgan » Sun Jun 23, 2013 2:49 pm

Hello and welcome!

Are you planning to move to the USA and are worried about the moving process? One of the first steps to succeed with your expatriation is to properly prepare yourself for the move.

How should you arrange the move? Can you do-it-yourself with help from friends, or do you need help from a professional international mover?

What do you plan to take and to leave? Will you need all your furniture, or will it be easier/cheaper to buy most things once you have arrived? Are electrical appliances compatible to the USA?

How can you bring your car? Is it worth it?

What tips and advice can you share with us about your move to the USA? If you are preparing for your move currently – what questions do you have? If you have already completed a move – what are your tips?

We also recommend following our series "The Move to America" as Molly details the process of moving to the States. Thanks in advance for sharing!

Once I moved from India to the US, I planned properly about my move. Surely I need my furniture and all my belongings, so I want to go with the relocation company. I do not know any relocation company and get some relocation advice for a company. They helped me to go with the best mover in the world and I am happy with my move.

While selecting the mover company, look at the pricing rate for each product, insurance percentage and the responsiveness to the clients. At least get the quotation from 3 to 4 moving company and plan your move.
