International Moves FAQs Answered 👇🏻

What Should I Pack First When Moving? 🤔

The question of where to start packing can confuse even the most organized among us. Here’s a fun fact: The Library of Congress, with over 170 million items, took over a year to move. Thankfully, you won’t need that long!

Begin with items you use less frequently: your Christmas decorations, the waffle iron that comes out for Sunday brunch, or books you’ve already read. Save your daily necessities like toiletries, kitchen utensils, and work essentials for the last couple of days. Not only does this make your packing process smoother, but it also reduces the chaos on arrival. And remember, whether you need packing or unpacking assistance, our team is always ready to help!

How Do I Navigate Through Customs? 😅

Tales of customs can sound confusing and complex, like the mythical Labyrinth of Crete. But with Arpin by your side, you’ve got nothing to fear. Our team handles all the necessary paperwork and ensures your belongings pass through customs smoothly. 

Do Moving Companies Pack for You? 📦

This question brings to mind an amusing anecdote. We once had a client who convinced that moving companies don’t offer packing services, tried to stuff his wardrobe into his car. Needless to say, it didn’t work. At Arpin, we offer comprehensive packing services to ensure all your items, whether it’s cherished photo album or a fragile china set, toy box, or wine collection, reaches its new home safely.

Can I Move My Pet Internationally? 🐾

YES, and you don’t have to be as inventive as the Australian man who tried to ship himself (and his dog) in a wooden crate. 😊 While Arpin does not directly move pets, we work closely with the best pet relocation agencies worldwide. We coordinate with these experts to ensure your pets are moved with the utmost care and comfort. This way, every family member, whether furry or not, is taken care of.
