Checklist for International

PUMYANG provide you with a moving checklist to help you

  • OBTAIN PERSONAL RECORDS from schools, doctors and dentists. Check your family's passports to make sure they are up to date. Check progress on your visa applications. Purchase airline tickets and book flights.

    MAKE SURE YOUR INOCULATIONS ARE UP TO DATE, take care of any pending medical or dental problems and obtain a supply of prescription items you need regularly. Travelling is more enjoyable when you are in good health.
  • RETURN BORROWED ITEMS, such as library books and videos. Collect items that you have lent to others. NOTIFY UTILITIES AND DELIVERY FIRMS of the date of your departure. Settle your accounts with the supermarket, newspaper etc. Arrange for essential utilities such as gas, water, electricity and telephone to continue through moving day so that these services will remain in effect until you leave the premises. PREPARE CHANGE OF ADDRESS NOTICES for post offices, subscriptions, friends insurance companies and credit cards.

    Arrange with your bank to transfer your account to your destination city.

    SEND OUT GARMENTS AND CARPETS FOR CLEANING. Clothing and carpets travel best when clean and dry. Cleaning will also reduce chance of mould and mildew enroot. A few days before.

    DEFROST AND CLEAN YOUR REFRIGERATOR AND FREEZER. If you are moving these appliances they should be washed and wiped dry and along with your washing machine allowed to air with the open door for at least 48 hours.

    GATHER VALUABLES, jewellery, keys and important papers from your safe deposit box. Also collect your passports, tickets and other travel documents. Select the clothing, shoes and other items that will accompany you on your trip. Check your suitcases and purchase additional pieces of luggage you need.
  • IF POSSIBLE TURN OFF YOUR ROOM AIR CONDITIONERS and use them only when necessary during the packing. Furniture kept in a constantly cooled climate and condensate when suddenly exposed to hot air. Allowing your furniture to adept to the warm air will be helpful in eliminating moisture problems during transit in the tropics.

    PACK YOUR SUITCASES and remove them, together with your valuables, passports and tickets, to a safe place, such as trusted neighbour's home. This will protect them from accidentally being packed with other goods.

    SET YOUR PERSONAL TELEPHONE AND ADDRESS BOOK ASIDE. You may want to keep it with you to get in touch with people later. DISPOSE OF ALL REMAINING FLAMMABLES, DANGEROUS OR HAZARDOUS MATERIALS. Throw away bottles of nail polish, and liquids in glass bottles. Bleach the ammonia, if spilled, broken or leaked can cost considerable damage to other items in shipment and should not be packed. Neither should cleaning fluid, explosives or other dangerous items.

    GET A GOOD NIGHTS REST. Plan your farewell party a few days before or after packing. We don't recommend taking pills to stay awake or sleep now. Having your wits about you is far more important.
  • RELAX! Let the professionals handle your move. You and your spouse should be around to oversee the packing, making sure that everything that needs to go is packed. Make sure your documents are in order. Be sure you have the contact telephone number and address of your moving company at destination. Last but not least we wish you and your family best of luck.
