It is so important to plan any international move properly. You will need to think about selling or renting out your current home, packing all your possessions, placing some items in self-storage, organising removals and probably freight shipping. It is also just as important not to take a risk and move to a country you aren't entirely sure is the right choice for you long-term. Of course, for some people moving from country to country is OK. However, if you are looking to make a permanent home away from your own country, it is important to do your prior research.
One really important thing to do before you plan your move to Europe is to instead, plan a trial move. This will give you some real first-hand experience in your country of choice, helping you to make the best possible decisions for your family.
Here are 6 reasons a trial move to Europe is a great idea if you are thinking of leaving Brazil:
- You Can See How The Children Cope
Children can adapt so well to a new life in another country, but sometimes they may struggle. A trial move gives you the leeway to reverse your decision to move permanently if the children really do struggle with the change.
- Arranging Things Is Easier
If after a few months you all decide that a move to Europe is a great idea, you're in a really good position to start making arrangements in your country of choice. It can be difficult to make arrangements when you're in a different country.
- Learning A New Language Can Be More Successful
Being immersed in the country the language you are learning is spoken in means you will learn it much easier than just on an app, or in a classroom. This will help a permanent move run much more smoothly long-term, especially for your children.
- Testing Different Areas, Or Even Countries
Perhaps you are unsure if you want a coastal location, or a rural location within a specific country. Perhaps you are unsure on which country you want to move to. A trial move enables you to sample different areas without commitment, and to try different countries if you feel you need to.
- Lowering Risk Of Failure
It is risky to move without properly trying a new area out. Locally the risk is low because you can easily move areas, but when you move countries, you're putting a lot more on the line. A trial move lowers your risk of moving and then realising you've made a mistake.
- Organising A Professional Moving Company
You can organise a professional moving company from your new location with ease because you will be there in person. Perhaps the international moving companies are better in your new location, which means you can easily source the best organization because you will be there and not just on the phone.
The above 6 points are just a few reasons that a trial move to Europe is a good idea. It makes sense to try out the lifestyle first before fully committing to a move. With the right first-hand experience of your new country of choice, your international move is much more likely to be successful long-term.
