If you’re considering moving to a luxury home abroad, it might be wise to get your affairs in order first.
From documentation to business affairs, to languages and healthcare, here is a guide on the 5 things that should be on your to-do list before moving.
1. Get Your Documents in Order
There’s no worse feeling than realizing you’ve lost your documents in the back of a drawer somewhere.
Make sure you get everything together and put it all in one place. If you’re prone to disorganization, consider investing in one of Maxwell-Scott’s sturdy leather folders to keep all your documents held together securely.
2. Invest in Recruitment Software
If you own a business, there is no better time to get some recruitment software than if you are moving abroad.
With all the stress and pressure, it’s worthwhile to have software that can make the recruitment process easier for you.
An example of intelligent recruitment software is Oleeo, which uses artificial intelligence to select candidates based on the qualities that best fit the job descriptions that you input, reducing the length of your hiring process to just 3 days.
This reduces the time that you need to concentrate on hiring and frees up your time and energy to manage the moving process.
3. Look into a Removal Team
If you’re looking to move overseas with furniture and bulkier belongings, you may want to research an international removals team who can help you transport your goods.
This will take away the stress of planning and executing the move and will be less time-consuming for you to manage.
Additionally, belongings are kept safe by the experienced teams that handle the logistics of your move and will be aware of any customs regulations that you may not understand or have time to research. You can often get a free quote online to estimate the cost for you.
4. Learn the Language
There is no better way to prepare for moving to a new country than to learn the language. You can invest in books, audiotapes, and videos to educate yourself on the language.
Practicing little and often with family and friends will help you to learn faster, and will help you build better relationships with locals and neighbors, not to mention business connections.
5. Sort out Your Healthcare
Whichever country you will move to will have its own rules regarding healthcare, so it’s best to be as prepared as possible.
If moving from the UK to a country in the European Union, you will be eligible to apply for an EHIC card that will cover emergency treatment for the first 3 months of your stay. Following this, you would have to organize private insurance to cover your healthcare.
You can use websites online to compare medical systems around the world to decide which precautions you need to take for your health.
