Moving to Hungary from the US
When moving to Hungary, hiring an international mover is highly essential. As you start your search for an excellent company, you must be watchful because some moving companies offer low-grade services which are very far from what they publicize. To safeguard your money and your goods, you must assess every company you encounter. Ascertain that a company has a great deal of experience in Hungarian moves, provides comprehensive shipping options, holds suitable licenses, offers free consultations and moving quotes, and has firm linkages with overseas shipping agents. To further assess the quality of moving services a company offers, ask for referrals and read online reviews and feedback.
International moving involves complex preparations to ensure that you meet all Customs requirements. The moving company you hire will assist you in gathering them. You have to prepare the necessary documents including an original Bank Guarantee, visa for long stay in Hungary, Passport, Residence Permit, Work Permit, items inventory, Power of Attorney, letter authorizing Destination Agent to clear you shipment and Guarantee Letter from your employer. All the aforementioned documents must be in Hungarian before they are submitted to the Customs of Hungary.
