Moving to Another Country With U-Haul

Posted: August 17, 2023
A U-Haul employee carefully moves a U-Box container that'll be sent internationally.

More and more people are studying or moving abroad for many reasons. It’ll take some serious planning on your part to prepare for such a big move.

By using Moving Help® and U-Box® storage containers, you can make your international move easier knowing that your items will be safe and protected when using multiple services together.

What Should I Do With My Items?

When trying to figure out how to move to another country, the first step is departing with your current items. You won’t need everything you own, and the more items you bring, the more expensive it’ll be to ship them. Maybe if you don’t love an item or can replace it at your destination, it’s time to sell it, gift it, donate it, recycle it, or throw it away. 

If you sell your items, such as your furniture, not only are you bringing fewer items with you, but you’ll also make some extra cash, which is important when you’re trying to save money. 

Perhaps you’re having a hard time departing with your items, have an unbiased friend to help keep you on track when going through your belongings. International moving will be easier with fewer items. 

How Does Using Moving Help Work With U-Box?

If you’re moving to Canada, Moving Help has moving labor providers in the United States and Canada. That means, you can have someone help you load your U-Box in the United States, have U-Haul ship your items to Canada, and then have moving labor in Canada unload your items.

If you want to do even less work, have your Service Providers deliver U-Box containers right to your door. You’ll be surprised by how much they can fit into one container, and they’ll know what can’t go in the storage container.

Moving Help and U-Box containers can still help with international moving even if you’re not moving to Canada. Moving Help can help you load your U-Box storage container in the United States, and then the containers can ship to wherever you move internationally.

Once you figure out how many U-Box containers you need, you can begin loading. Packing a U-Box container isn’t always easy depending on your items so keep this in mind if you’re planning to load it by yourself.

Moving internationally can get difficult. Moving with U-Box storage containers will make that process less complicated for you.

Who knows? A storage container might be a cheaper way to move long distance vs. your other options.
