The specificities from move to France Overseas

Moving is synonymous with heavy procedures and anticipation. When it takes place overseas, the procedures are even more important.

For large international moves it is advisable to hire professional movers, so you can worry only about the essentials.

First of all, note that a move to the French Overseas Territories should be planned at least two or three months in advance.

Transportation by ship is often preferred to air for cost reasons. The delivery time is variable and sometimes very long. On average, moving by boat from France to the West Indies takes 4 weeks and 6 weeks for the Indian Ocean.

Depending on the type of contract you choose, several services can be offered: the mover takes care of the entire move (packing, loading, unloading, unpacking) or you take care of the packing and unpacking in order to save money and sort the goods you will leave behind.

In order to choose your mover, have several estimates made and compare the services provided. In order to establish reliable estimates, the movers will have to make a technical visit to your home. 

This will allow you to evaluate the volume of your goods and to choose the objects and furniture to be transported. It is wiser not to move furniture in kit form, often fragile and impossible to reassemble. 

Prioritize the goods that you particularly care about. Your technician (main contact for your move) will determine with you the fragile objects (paintings, mirrors)... requiring a specific packing.

The estimate must include essential information: volume of your goods, delivery and loading addresses, dates, mode of transport, distance, services, price and payment terms, general conditions of sale, but also taxes, customs fees and insurance.

On the day of your move, make sure that your boxes are well labeled and that you have all the necessary administrative documents with you.

A move to the French Overseas Territories requires a reliable contact who knows the local specificities and who will take care of all the customs formalities. 

Finally, note that a move in off-peak period is more advantageous in terms of price and more easily negotiable (except for the summer months and the end of the year)...
