Learn your countries new culture and rules: Tip 5

International moves can be stressful, but once your move is organised with the help of a professional moving company, you can begin to get excited at your new home. You may wish to research the new culture and customs you will be moving to, such as correct manners and what is expected in formal such as work and informal settings. Although many countries may speak English, it is also advisable to try and learn some of the basic language of the country to which you will be living in.

Moving abroad and to a new country, will certainly mean a different culture and more than likely different rules. This includes new regulations for importing goods into the country of your destination, so it is important for you to review these. The international moving company overseeing your move should be experienced in shipping and importing goods worldwide and will have the experience and knowledge to advise you on what you may or may not take with you to your destination country.

If you wish to learn more about what you can import then visit the countries destination government website, where you should be able to find more details on their customs, or you can also check with the U.K. Embassy in your country. For example, you generally c cannot ship perishables and some countries prohibit the import of alcohol and firearms.
