Step 3: Pre-Move Prep

Before choosing an international moving company, do everything possible to lessen the items you will put into a shpping container. You can organise a garage sale to sell those stuff that you had wanted to get rid for years.  Items that don't sell but are too good to be discarded can be donated to your local charity organisations.
