Collect all the documents, early.

Sort your children's school matters, upfront.

Inform your children’s school at least one month in advance about the house shift. This will give them to time to prepare for all the relieving formalities. You will be required to clear the dues if any. You will receive all the relieving documents only after you do that.

If you are relocating in the middle of a school year, try to look for schools in the new city, or country, even before you move. Many schools allow you to complete the admission procedure online. You can communicate with the school you choose and accordingly have all the required documents ready.

Ensure continuity in education.

Planning early about school will ensure that your children will not miss too much school and their education will not be hampered. This will also give your children a chance to do some research about their new school and be prepared for what awaits them in their new home. Writer Relocations can help you find the best school for your children, in the destination city, according to your educational preference. Check out our Orientation Services.

If you are working, remember to collect all documents from your employer as well. It will be difficult to arrange these documents over emails once you are in a new location. These documents are very important in case you plan to work after shifting to a new city or country. Even if you don’t plan to work right away, it is always better to have all the documents with you because you will never know when you might change your plans.

Read what people like you say about packing and moving with Writer Relocations.

"Writer Relocations has been affiliated with the Piramal Art Foundation and has never failed to deliver their promise.

Their meticulous and highly professional services enabled us to embark upon an ambitious project, which has just being concluded. Writer Relocations were our packaging and transportation company for an exhibition Pages of a Mind, Raja Rajiv Varma: Life and Expressions. This exhibition involved collection and delivery of highly valuable works of art. The entire procedure was carried out to our great satisfaction and we hope to continue the relationship that has been established."
