Preparing your move

The preparation phase is essential for the success of an international move. In order to issue an accurate estimate, you will be asked for some practical information:

the planned date (summer being the most active period for our profession)
the access to the residence (floor, elevator, parking)
a description of the goods to be moved (to estimate the volume)
nationality and status in the country of arrival (citizen returning to the country, retired, expatriation for professional reasons or private move)
the type of service requested (partial or complete packing of personal effects)
the mode of transport (Activmoving offers its services by road, sea or air depending on the destination, the urgency and also the size of the move)

For the calculation of the volume, a visit to your home by one of our specialists in international mobility or a detailed list of goods or a telephone exchange will allow us to propose a detailed estimate adapted to your request.
