Comparing Overseas Moving Rates

As you look from one overseas moving company to the next, you’ll certainly want to keep your budget in mind. The best way to accurately compare overseas moving rates is to perform apples-to-apples comparison. This can be done by acquiring international moving rates from companies using the same shipment volume, international shipment method, start location and end destination. Once you have all of the quotes you have requested you can compare them side by side. Though it is important to maintain a reasonable overseas moving budget, it is also important that your budget does not prevent you from being able to use the best overseas shipping company available to you. Consider reducing your shipment volume or using a cheaper shipment method so that you are able to stay within budget while using the international shipping company of your choice.

What to Expect When Moving to Norway from New York

If you have decided that moving to Norway is for you, you will benefit from its strong economy and pleasant quality of life. Norway, which is situation in Northern Europe on the Western Scandinavian Peninsula, is a beautiful country of naturally wondrous sights and wildlife. Norway’s strong economy is one of the top in the world, supported by oil reserves and other natural resources. If you’re moving to Norway with a family you’ll be happy to hear that Norway has a sophisticated healthcare system which is government funded, higher education which is subsidized and a strong social security program. Norway has an extremely varied climate and environment, so if you’re moving to Norway you can choose whether to live in the more temperate climate along the coast or the slightly more severe climate inland. The cuisine in Norway attests to its longstanding existence as a fishing and farming country. The capital city of Oslo is the largest city in Norway and is essentially the government, business and cultural hub of the country. Definitely a fun place to consider living in if moving to Norway. The official language of Norway is Norwegian, so it’s definitely a good idea to begin learning basic Norwegian prior to moving to Norway so that you and your family are able to acclimate smoothly to your new international home. The currency in Norway is the Norwegian Krone (NOK), so you should discuss how and when to convert your currency with your international relocation specialist. Also, NY International Shipping suggests contact your local Norwegian Consulate to research whether or not you will need to obtain a visa prior to moving to Norway. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time prior to your overseas moving day to have your Norwegian visa processed as it can take a substantial amount of time.

If you still have questions regarding overseas moving or if you would like to schedule moving to Norway, please be in touch. We’d love to hear from you!
