Plan Your Move Early - Talk to the Professionals


Now you have made the decision to move to or from Malaysia, it is time to dive into the logistics of this exciting stage in your life. There is no doubt that moving is a stressful event, yet it will only take a few weeks then you can focus on enjoying your new home. Anyone who has moved will agree that the key to completing a successful move is to plan early on. Agreeably this is not the most exciting of tasks but putting it off will only complicate things down the track. 

Create a Timeline

On average, it takes 12 weeks to plan a move effectively. Having a strategy with plenty of room for error or unexpected changes in your itinerary is even more important when you are dealing with an international relocation. If this move to or from Malaysia is for professional reasons, ask your employer if they are paying for relocation expenses so you can start planning as soon as possible. You can begin by outlining the tasks that need to be done each week to make it easier to tackle anything that comes your way. 

Contact Your Mover

You will need to start by deciding what you will take to your new home and what will be donated, sold or put into storage. Once that is done, you need to talk to the professional movers at Allied Pickfords Malaysia or your home country. They will want to visit your home to have a clearer idea of the size of the job and give you an accurate quote. In the case of an international move, doing it on your own will usually lead to a huge headache so is best to trust the experts. They will deal with all the paperwork for customs clearance and ensure your belongings make it safely to their destination.

Your movers will require a minimum of 8 weeks’ notice and even longer if you’re thinking of moving during the summer. Most families prefer to use the time off school during the summer holidays to relocate and that means that movers cannot guarantee you a space – so keep that in mind. 

Easy Sailing

The great thing about hiring professionals is that they can also take care of other time-consuming tasks, such as packing and unpacking. Another advantage is they can give you comprehensive information about items they are not able to take to your new home. This is very important if you’re relocating as many countries have a long list of restricted items. This will let you deal with other equally important tasks, such as contacting your bank or service providers. 

If you have pets, your mover can put you in touch with an international pet relocation agent that will help you with all the necessary documentation to make sure your furry or feathered friend arrives safely at your destination. An Allied Pickfords move coordinator will be your guide throughout the process so call them and get started on your new adventure. 


So when you’re ready to make the move to Malaysia, come to Allied Pickfords and we’ll get your belongings there safely, on time and at an affordable price.
