About Moving to Thailand

Thailand offers an enviable lifestyle for anyone who finds themselves there. Ripe with beautiful scenery, luscious forests, pristine beaches and islands, and dozens of nature reserves throughout the area, Thailand is truly a tropical paradise worth dreaming about.  In addition to being beautiful, Thailand is also one of the friendliest countries in the world, and the culture is notorious for being welcoming to visitors from all walks of life. Influenced deeply by ancient Buddhist and Hindu traditions, Thailand is a diverse, celebrated, and historic place just waiting to be explored. If you’ve been considering moving to Thailand in the near future, here’s a simple guide to help you get started. For many people, moving to Thailand is a dream come true. Between the beautiful waterfront attractions and the cheap real estate and housing, it’s easy to see why Thailand has become such a popular tourist and expat destination. Regardless of where you come from or what you’re hoping to find in Thailand, it’s safe to assume that it exists here and that building a new life will be simple and enjoyable. In addition to being exceedingly welcoming, Thailand also has a reputation for being a very diverse and active place where it’s easy for expats to get established within the culture.  When it comes to job opportunities, they vary depending upon where you choose to live in Thailand. Working in the tourism or restaurant industry is always an option, as is teaching English or tutoring in Thai schools or privately in Thai households. While it may be somewhat difficult to find work in major Thai companies, it’s always possible to find work in varying sectors of the economy, and many expats choose to teach to utilize their skills while also playing an important role in Thai society.  By being prepared for the move to Thailand and understanding what goes into a move to Thailand, it’s easier to enjoy a streamlined experience and a more effortless move, regardless of your motives. While Thailand stands out as a beachside paradise for many people around the world, it’s also a lovely place to live and families, retirees, young professionals, and students alike will all find something to love in this beautiful and scenic place.

When you are moving your valuables internationally, it is a good idea to make certain that they are insured against losses or damage. Although it is very rare, you never know what might befall your goods during transportation, they might get lost on the way and if you have not insured them, you will be forced to compensate for the losses. Reduce the risk of such occurrences by being appropriately insured whether you are using ocean or air as a means of your shipping because accidents are unpredictable and no one knows when they might arise.

Insuring your goods will save you the time and avoid obstructions in case there are claim issues about the shipment. You will have more control over your items by making sure that the insuring assessments, restrictions and standards provided by insurers on deliveries are sufficient to meet your needs and requirements. Moreover, because in foreign countries chances of dealing with their courts are high, you will resolve claims dealing with foreign insurance companies easily and faster with a valid insurance.

Following a general average (an internationally recognized standard in a case where when a vessel incurs certain types of accidents all the parties involved will share equally in the loss) as the exporter or the importer, you may be obliged to make a cash deposit or post a bond to be able to obtain the right to release your shipment. Now in this case if you have insurance on your goods, the company will take care of all the expenses and make sure your cargo is released. Carriers have limited accountability on the loss of cargo that may occur in transit and that’s why it is very important to insure your goods with a moving company.

The majority of movers will not ship your pets for you, most of the time they will arrange for a specialist company to handle the transport of your pet safe and securely.

We all know that packing can be so hectic and challenging, and we tend to develop a negative attitude towards it; however, this shouldn’t be the case. Following these simple tips will inspire you to do it quicker and in an organised manner:

  • Since there are many things that one needs when packing, you should start early — like some weeks prior the moving day.
  • Start with the things you are less likely to use on a daily basis. As days go by, do the same until there is nothing to pack and you are ready to move.
  • Label the boxes you have filled for easy identification during unpacking.
  • Make sure to fill all suitcases with clothes instead of packing empty ones. Make sure you use every empty vessel.
  • Put all the boxes in a single room from where you can grab them easily and put them in the moving vehicle.
  • Put heavy items in small boxes, and light objects in large boxes to avoid them being torn due to the excessive weight during transportation.
  • Take apart all the furniture.
  • Instead of packing blankets, wrap them around other items like lampshades.
  • Do not pack hanging clothes — keep them on hangers and pack them in your car.
  • Lastly, to save on the money, be organised and ready before the movers arrive to use the least possible time.
