Greece Europe International Moving Advice Britannia Bradshaws

Plan ahead and research

An international move takes a lot of coordination and planning and you should begin to plan your move as soon as you know you're moving. Research the country you're moving to, as well as the town you'll be settling in. The more you know about the locals, customs, traditions and the day-to-day life of your new home, the quicker you'll settle in.
