International removals from Dublin can be quite easy thanks to the world-famous Dublin Port. Dublin Port is Ireland’s most prolific port for sea freight, handling nearly 50% of all imports and exports for the Republic of Ireland. Being so close to such a well-equipped port is very lucky indeed, since it will make shipping your goods overseas simple.

Here are some of the questions you need to answer before you leave Ireland’s shores for your new home:

What am I bringing with me?

Overseas moving costs depend on two factors: where you are going, and how much stuff you are bringing with you. Many people use an international move as a reason to replace old furniture or other items that just aren’t worth shipping. Also, some items may not hold up well during the moving process as they bump or lurch their way across the ocean, such as fine antiques or other glass items. Also, consider how your grandmother’s armoire may handle moving to a more humid climate. Some items may be best left behind with a trusted relative or friend. office removals

How will I transport my belongings?

Bringing less means spending less for your move. A full container load can fit the contents of an entire 2-bdrm home but what if you don’t really need all that space? For smaller loads, you can go with a less than container load and only pay for the cargo space you need. However, be advised that a less than container load is a shared container load. This can mean delays in transit if your container needs to be loaded or unloaded at several ports of call along the way.

What about the paperwork?

The paperwork involved in moving overseas can be onerous and complicated. Every country in the world uses its own special forms and procedures for handling international imports. You will always need your Irish passport, but all other paperwork can differ from destination to destination.

For example, some countries require visas, while others don’t. If you will need a visa, you should apply for it as soon as you can. The process to receive a visa can take weeks to months to years. Don’t leave this part to luck.

Check with the local embassy of your destination country to find out what other documents you will need. Some countries require paperwork from your employer, bank statements, residence permits, and other vital records. Do your homework to ensure that you arrive with what you need.

How much will this move cost?

Getting an instant online quote from removal companies can be easy, but the estimates are very broad and not specific to your needs or situation. For example, one carrier says that the cost to ship a full container from Dublin, Ireland to New York City could be anywhere between €5,700 – €7,800. From Dublin to Tokyo, Japan could cost anywhere from €7,900 – €10,700. You don’t have to be an accountant to see that there is a really big gap between those two numbers that can wreak havoc on your budget.

Customer Reviews

I want to take a moment to say thank you to the extremely hard working crew that handled my move. I admit I was skeptical of hiring a company to move my household stuff but I was so pleased with the services. These guys packed everything up and had it loaded and delivered in no time at all. Everything was taken care of from start to finish and my wife and I were able to take some much needed time to check out the new town without having to worry about getting things unpacked. Three Movers took care of everything and we really appreciate it!
