For some children the prospect of a new school, new friends or even a new bedroom can be daunting. Talk to your children about your move and get them used to the idea well in advance. There are many good websites and many good books which touch on the best way to handle children during a move.
• Involve your children in the planning process.
• Help them learn about the new community where they will be living.
• Let them be honest with you about how they are feeling.
• Try explaining the concept of moving to young children by play-acting with dolls, boxes and a truck.
• Above all, keep your children safe on the moving day and reassure your children that you’re not going to leave them behind!
No. TRANSFERET requires its Network members to provide special wrapping and packing materials. Availability of certain materials vary by country but in general we have a number of specialised cartons for the common items such as books, toys and normal home contents. In addition, most locations have both
flat and standing wardrobes for clothing.
One of our favorites is our Essentials box which is used for furniture hardware, remotes cables, etc.
No matter how unique the item being moved, we can provide the right packaging.
Vehicle regulations vary from country to country but they are almost always highly detailed in terms of paperwork, regulations and procedures. Before sending any vehicle overseas, be sure to check with our office first. Then also check the local Embassy of the destination country and insist on seeing the
regulations in writing. If there are any doubts or concerns about what is or is not allowed,
our office can assist in checking at the destination with reliable sources.
Pet owners are often more concerned about their pets than their personal effects. We know this and employ specialists or specialist partners to deal with pets. As with vehicles, the regulations vary greatly and importations of pets or animals are carefully watched at destination. Be absolutely sure of the rules
before embarking on shipment of a pet. Also be aware of requirements for inoculations and quarantine.
