How to Move to America from Hong Kong

usa-1327120_960_720


It doesn’t matter why you are moving to America from Hong Kong, you’ll need to ensure everything is sorted out before you get on that plane, let alone set foot in one of the most exciting countries in the world. Allied Pickfords can help you achieve a less stressful move with our range of international relocation services.

The United States is one of the most popular destinations for expats in the world. Regardless of whether you are looking to move there for work, to build a new business or to live a different lifestyle, there is something for everyone.

The USA is home to some of the largest Western cities in the world, offering glitz and glamour, 24-hour entertainment and vast opportunities to make your stamp on the world. There are also quaint towns with large rural surroundings for anyone in search of a quieter life.

Moving to America

While the US is one of the most popular destinations for expats, it is also one of the more complicated countries to move to. Many people transfer to the States with their company, so they are – fortunately – sponsored by their organisation.

The complexities of the often-prohibitive Green Card visa lottery can cause much disappointment. Other choices are to apply for a visa that has been supported by a US citizen or family member with permanent residence.

Making the Move

Once visas are in place, you can start to plan your move. It is important to check with potential schools for your children as you will need to obtain the correct documents in order to transfer their education.

When moving to America from Hong Kong, you may decide to take a lot of your furniture and possessions with you. If you are wanting to do so, you are going to need a removals company such as Allied Pickfords. Our brand travels to hundreds of destinations around the world and our teams are experts in international removals.

When moving abroad and you’re moving many belongings or shipping furniture, you may have to deal with customs rules and regulations along with potential language barriers. Due to the many niche rules for each country, it is important to hire an international moving company that has plenty of experience.

Save Time and Reduce Stress with Packing Services

One of the most arduous parts of moving is the packing and unpacking. When left to the homeowners, it is a chore that regularly gets postponed, with some homes still storing unopened boxes in their garages.

The stress on the household to finish packing can slowly increase as it nears closer to the moving date. Hire the team at Allied Pickfords to come and pack up all your property. We will pack it safely and securely, making sure to handle each and every item with care.

Delicate ornaments, family heirlooms and childrens’ favourite toys can easily become damaged when not arranged securely, but our teams of trained movers and packers can bundle up a home swiftly, saving you weeks of stress and days of work.

Remember, a happy move is a well-planned move, so feel free to ask your moving consultant plenty of questions before you relocate to the US from Hong Kong. Most of all, enjoy your new adventures in the land of opportunity.
