She has great news for you! To start off on the right foot, she's sending you to the new Paris office. Only problem is that you'll need to move within a month. It is instantaneous panic that sets in. Don't contact your therapist. City Removalists offers these tips for home removals.

Get in touch with Australia Post first!

The redirect and hold mail service offered by Australia Post works even for overseas moves. In case you're taking your family with you, you can submit a list of all their names so their mail will be redirected to your new address.

When you apply, make sure you have your passport or driver's license with you since they'll need to verify your identity. Once you return home, let your mail service know when you will receive it.

Australia Post offers an international mail redirection program for overseas moves. They will send your mail to your new overseas address once you give them your new address. There is, however, one caveat. Neither Australia Post nor customs clearance can redirect mail that requires a signature. Those kinds of packages can be received by someone else here in Australia and then sent directly to you. In this case, they will be returned to the sender as undeliverable. This is especially if you are considering interstate removals.

Take this step as soon as possible. If you are moving within three days of filing your application, you will need to do so.

Call your removalists next!

Moving your furniture may not be necessary if you return within a year or so. Some things, however, may be worth keeping for removals storage so they're in a safe place. If, however, you plan to move elsewhere upon your return, you might want to store all your belongings with your removalist until you move back.

No problem if your schedule is tight. Movers and packers are available from most reputable removalists to help you save time. You will have plenty of other things to do!

Prepare yourself for changes in culture!

It's time for a crash course in the culture and language of the country you're moving to if you don't speak the language. Prepare yourself to communicate at the market, with your new healthcare provider, and in other situations.

You should make friends with the locals, especially when you are there on business. By learning the culture and speaking the language, you will earn a five-star rating for your company.

If you need help untangling the language in legal documents, such as residency permits, apartment applications, and contracts, make sure you have the name of a good translator on hand. Bring patience along, most importantly. Especially when communication is difficult, bureaucratic systems work slowly.

It pays to know the local culture and jargon when moving to another English-speaking country. Expressions that may be perfectly acceptable in Australia may have a completely different meaning abroad. Make sure you understand the local culture, so you won't offend them.

Using these tips, you'll be ready for your temporary overseas move in no time. Get help from a removalist if you need it and we can certainly help, if you need a removalist in Penrith, please give us a call on 1300 441 331.
