What to Expect when Moving to Spain

Moving to Spain, a colorful country with a beautiful culture and eclectic body of citizens, can be a wonderful opportunity for you and your family. You probably already know that the language spoken throughout the country is Spanish, so consider brushing up on your Spanish or beginning to learn before moving to Spain. Also, the currency in Spain is the Euro. You will probably convert your currency over during immigration or when you open a bank account near your new home. Ask your relocation specialist about the best way to do this when moving to Spain. You’ll find that the climate in Spain is quite diverse, ranging from warm and temperate to cooler and often cloudy. This is largely due to its varying terrain, which includes high plateaus and mountain ranges to coastal shores. Spain has much to offer from entertainment to fashion, food to rich culture. It’s no wonder it is one of the top tourists destinations worldwide! If you are moving to Spain and not currently a member of the European Union you will be required to attain a visa in order to live and work in Spain. Regulations and timeframes can vary. Contact the Spanish Consulate in your area to learn more about the requirements and procedures associated with obtaining a visa when moving to Spain. Make sure you give yourself a fair amount of time before moving overseas to begin the visa process as the procedure can take a while. Once you have obtained your visa, your relocation specialist will make sure you have that as well as any other necessary documentation and paperwork to ensure that your moving to Spain goes smoothly as scheduled. NY International Shipping will even take all of the worry and stress of passing through customs from you, seeing your shipment through from beginning to end.

How to Compare Overseas Moving Companies

NY International Shipping knows that it can be confusing to weed through the claims of dozens of overseas moving companies. We suggest making a small list of the best candidates and doing some in-depth research to determine which is the best to use when moving to Spain. There are certain key things you should look for in a reliable overseas moving company. Begin by asking for referrals. Any company that provides excellent service to their clients should be able to produce referrals from past clients that describe their positive experiences with the overseas moving company. You may also wish to look at third-party review websites to see the ratings on each overseas moving company. These ratings are generally based on the experience of the client as well as the services offered by the company. Next, pay a visit to the physical location of the company or companies you are considering. As you plan moving to Spain it can be very helpful to see how the overseas relocation company you are considering functions in person.

When comparing international moving rates between multiple companies, the easiest way to do this is through apples-to-apples comparison. You can do this by getting quotes from each international moving company you are considering using the same shipping volume, service, point of origin and destination. Once you have gathered all of the quotes, you can easily compare the rates as they will be based on the exact same details. Keep in mind that rates are not the only factor worth considering. It is very important to look at everything the company has to offer. Any experienced overseas moving company worthy of helping you move to Spain should have a profile similar to NY International Shipping’s:
