This week, we’ll be sharing some Pre-Move Planning Tips to help you relocate overseas. 

Pre-Move Planning

Great! You’ve decided the location of your new home and have contacted a couple of recruiters who are helping you search for your dream job, now it’s time to start your pre-move plan. To make the most of your move, we recommend you:

Search for good airfare deals

As borders start opening there are many airline companies who are offering discounted rates to incite people to travel, so make sure you shop around.

Ask your doctor for a complete check-up before you leave

Lucky for us Kiwis, New Zealand has one of the best healthcare systems in the world, so before you leave make sure you ask your doctor for a complete check-up, as doing so can help you save thousands of dollars. Also, you may want to consider other medical check-ups such as dental and optical, and you may also want to top-up on your current vaccinations to ensure you’re protected. 

Visit online forums and communities for money saving tips and advice

You’ll be surprise at the amount of information available online, you may even find information about your new city/suburb including shops, sights, schools and local regulations.

Exchange your money locally

We suggest you avoid money exchange providers at the airport as they have higher fees and lower exchange rate. Also, don’t forget to read the fine print and ask the broker about the fees involved. 

Relocate with your current household belongings rather than buying new ones

Perhaps one of the best ways to help you save money is by choosing to relocate with your current valuables rather than buying new items. But with so many options, how do you choose the right moving company for you?
