Global Van Lines offers some excellent international moving tips including ways to save money on your international move:

  • Don’t pack anything you don’t currently use as it will only add weight to your moving costs.
  • Hold a garage sale or donate items to local charities to help save time and money.
  • Pack properly by packing each box fully and closing it tightly using packing tape. This allows the boxes to stack neatly creating more space for other items.
  • Mark boxes clearly by designated room so that these can be grouped together or unloaded accordingly at their final destination. This will save time and, in turn, money.

Global Van Lines has plenty of other helpful tips available as guides that can be downloaded from their website.
