International pet transportation
Relocating overseas would not be complete without taking your furry, feathered, or scaly family members with you. However, actually getting them from A to B can seem like an impossible task. Fortunately, there are a number of trusted pet transport companies dedicated to getting our much-loved critters to their new homes safely. It can seem frightening, leaving your pet in the hands of strangers, but with most UK companies DEFRA, IATA, and IPATA approved you know the safety and comfort of your pet will be paramount to them. They will also be able to help with the paperwork you need to complete for your pet, taking away the stress of forms you may find confusing.
It’s amazing how many belongings we accumulate in our homes. Sometimes, it’s not feasible to take everything with you when you initially move abroad, or your new home overseas may be a little smaller than what you’re used to. Fretting over what you’re going to do with your surplus items can send you into a spin. However, there are solutions available to ensure your possessions are safe whether in the UK or anywhere in the world.

Financial and legal matters
Whilst nobody enjoys the small print or filling in countless forms, there will inevitably be a plethora of documents to complete before your move. A great place to start is ensuring your passport is in date and you have the correct visa in place for your move, if one is needed. You will also need to considering healthcare and banking in your new country and it is possible to get this in place before you set off.
