International Move from Cyprus – Are you planning to relocate to a different country in 2021? Possibly from Cyprus to the UK? Planning an international move is never easy at the best of times, so it is essential to have everything organised well in advance, and take advice from the industry experts. In this article, we look at ways to prepare for your big move and what you should be considering when selecting a removal company in Cyprus. The selected company will always be working with a removal partner at your destination country, so you should also look at this company.
We spoke with Peter Morton, Director of Peter Morton Removals, to find out how they facilitate and manage their international moves from Cyprus. We also asked him for his best advice on planning an international move from Cyprus to the UK.
ARE YOU PLANNING AN INTERNATIONAL MOVE FROM CYPRUS?
SURVEY – ESTABLISH YOUR SHIPPING COSTS FROM CYPRUS TO THE UK
Before you can calculate the shipping costs, you’ll need to book a Free Removal Survey with your chosen removal company in Cyprus. Once they have detailed everything that needs to be moved and provided you with an International Move Quotation, you will then be in a position to understand the actual shipping costs. This is where you need to learn the vocabulary and fully understand how it all works.
QUOTATION |ARE ALL SHIPPING COSTS INCLUDED?
It is essential to look at your Quotation to ensure that you are fully aware of what is and what is not included. Whilst a quote might look good on paper, if it only takes you as far as the port, you will incur extra costs. Ask lots of questions at this stage, to make sure that everything is covered, and your quote also includes basic customs clearance. At Peter Morton Removals, they always quote for a full international move and in the event that there are additional costs, due to the contents of the container, they will always point these out to you.
Following your Free Removal Survey, you will need to establish whether you are going for a Full Container Load (FCL) or Less than Container Load (LCL). If you are advised that you are LCL, you will be presented with the option of sharing space in a container. If you are doing an FCL, your Removals Surveyor will advise you as to whether you need a 20ft or 40ft container. Your shipping choices will impact the shipping time to or from Cyprus. While an FCL will take 2-4 weeks to arrive at its destination, an LCL will take 4-8 weeks. If you are planning an international move from Cyprus to the UK or from the UK to Cyprus, get in touch with Cyprus’ leading overseas moving company, Peter Morton Removals. They offer all types of shipping options from a single pallet to a full container load.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE SHIPMENT ARRIVES AT THE OTHER END?
ARRIVAL TO | INTERNATIONAL REMOVAL PARTNERS
It is essential to remember that your chosen removal company, in Cyprus, will always be working with a removal partner at your destination country, so you should always look at both companies. It is so important to understand who you will be working with at the other end. For many years, Peter Morton Removals have worked with their UK partner, Chudley International, based in Somerset. They can pick up or deliver, anywhere in England and Wales. In Scotland they work with Purdie Worldwide Removals & Storage. All companies share the same ethos for offering the highest level of relocation shipping from Cyprus to the UK.
STORAGE | STORAGE OPTIONS AFTER THE INTERNATIONAL MOVE
Now is also the time to consider storage options in your destination country. Whilst you hope that everything goes to plan and your new property will be ready and waiting for you at your destination, sadly this doesn’t always work out. Delays can occur with regards to legalities relating to the purchase of a property or problems with finding a rental property. You want to be sure that when your goods arrive, and if your property is not ready, you have the facility of safe storage.
For example, if you happen to be planning for an international move to Cyprus from abroad, it is worth knowing that Peter Morton Removals has Cyprus’ largest dedicated state-of-the-art storage facility. With 24-hour security and a professional wooden storage crate system, this is the safest storage facility in Cyprus for storing your goods until your international move can be completed. To give you peace of mind, they always include up to 4 weeks of FREE storage, in the event that you might need it. This means that you can arrive in Cyprus, find your feet and take your time in choosing your property. In every destination country, the storage facilities will be different. Make sure you check these companies before committing to anything.
