Moving to Japan

Planning a move to Japan takes time, effort and organisation. New Wave International Movers recognises that many of its clients prefer to leave this to somebody with moving experience and detailed knowledge about Japan.

Our staff have years of this type of moving experience and can provide you with advice on how to plan your move. If possible, you should contact us at least four weeks prior to your intended move date.

Moving information

With New Wave International Movers, moving to Japan is easy. We offer step-by-step guidance throughout the moving process, ensuring that everything runs smoothly.

The moving process is made up of three stages:

  1.   Pre-move preparation
  2.   Quote acceptance and move planning
  3.   Move day

Stage 1

Pre-move Preparation

During Pre-move preparation, a staff member:

  • visits your home
  • conducts an inspection of your home and the items to be moved
  • creates an inventory list of those items.

Stage 2

Quote Acceptance and Move Planning

At this stage, a staff member creates a quote for your Japan move.

Our removals quote is free (conditions apply) and you are under no obligation to accept it. The quote outlines all of the moving services included as part of the move, as well as any moving services that are excluded or require an additional fee.

Once you have accepted the quote, our staff member works with you to create a personalised moving plan.

Our staff member:

  • sets a move date
  • discusses the need to organise any additional services, such as storage, insurance, professional packing and cleaning
  • arranges for the delivery of appropriate-sized cartons and other packing materials, if self-packing.

At this stage, we advise you to:

  • decide on items to take with you, what to store and what to dispose of, or recycle
  • separate items to be transported by sea and air.

Stage 3

Move Day

On the day of the move, a staff member is available onsite throughout the move.

If you are still in your home or residing locally, we also recommend that you be available during the move, to provide instructions or answer any questions relating to your move.

A Moving Checklist and a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) are available, providing useful information about all stages of your move.
