The Stress-Free Guide to Starting a New Life in Cyprus
A Wealth of Experience
Moving from one country to another certainly requires the services of a reputable and experienced moving company. Attempting to move your entire worldly possessions to a new country is no easy feat. A well accredited international removal company will know the rigours of importing household effects and vehicles into Cyprus, inside-out. They’ll be fully conversant with the bio-security requirements and the various shipping methods available and will be on hand to advise you on the whole process.
This knowledge and their years of experience of dealing with every possible scenario of moving into and out of the island is highly valuable and will avoid any unpleasant surprises upon your arrival in the country.
From the outset, ensure that you have a clear budget in mind. Factor in as many of the additional costs as you can so that there are minimal ‘hidden costs’ that present themselves as you go through the process. Planning ahead of making the move to Cyprus will enable you to gauge whether you have saved enough or if you need to make arrangements for extra funds.
Store it up
It is common for international moves to Cyprus, and elsewhere, to involve the household effects being placed into storage. You may decide, for example, to rent a property in Cyprus in the first instance, whilst continuing to look for a property to purchase. A storage facility will provide a safe and secure temporary home for your possession during this time. Using a removal company who can offer storage options is important.
Booking the Move
If you are planning to use an international removals company on your move to Cyprus, it’s advisable to make contact with them as early on as possible. A good removal company will send out a surveyor to your home to assess the volume that you wish to move, answer any questions about the process of shipping your effects and can also offer advice and recommendations on other services allied to the removals process, such as currency providers etc.
