Packing Pointers

Winter Wardrobe: You don’t need to bring as many clothes as you think you do. Your entire wardrobe is too much to bring with you when you’re moving. People are not that concerned with what you’re wearing. Unless you already live in the great white north, you can buy a decent coat when you get here that will help you through the winter months. It’ll be far cheaper to purchase winter clothes after your relocation that it will be to bring them with you.

Appliance Science: Bring a few USA to UK plug adapters with you for any electronic items that you want to use. Computers and other electronic equipment are a lot more expensive in the UK than in the States so you may want to consider shipping your PC over.  Appliances on the other hand, are quite cheap. Don’t bother shipping your appliances, they won’t fit into your new apartment at all. Your cute Victorian walk-up won’t take modern American appliances.

The best thing that you can do when you’re starting to plan your relocation is to make a list of your requirements, and hand it over to your relocation agents who will be able to tell you what to bring with you and what you can purchase once you get here.
