Moving abroad doesn’t have to mean moving into the unknown. Different countries have different customs rules, and familiarising yourself with them can be daunting.

Luckily, Robinsons, fully-experienced staff are trained to guide you through the process. We’ve been moving people abroad since the 1960s; we definitely have the know-how when it comes to paperwork and other custom procedures.

Your move will be co-ordinated and managed by a designated Move Manager. As your single point of contact, your Move Manager will be in touch regularly prior to your move date, so that any problems or concerns are picked up early and resolved quickly, so you don’t have to worry about trying to think of everything.

If you have concerns regarding borders & customs, why not get in touch? Our friendly, dedicated staff are always happy to help. Alternatively, have a browse through our country-specific customs guides.
