Our Customers Say...

Good evening, I would like to express my thanks to NY International and most of all Mr Wayne Townsend my consultant. You should ask for him if he is available as he really knows his job far better than anyone else I spoke to in my research on whom to use for our relocation, And it was not easy, I was moving with my wife, 2 small children and a teenage daughter, so you can imagine our stress to begin with. And after talking to many companies we could not understand what really to expect or who to use or trust, But then luckily I found NY International online. Wayne really made this part of our stressful move very easy for us, He really knows his job. He explained to me what to expect and we had no issues or surprises from start to finish. He even stopped by our Townhouse in person to talk to us and give us tips and advise and his estimate was perfect. As soon as we met him we all felt a huge weight lift of our shoulders. He is very informative and very knowledgeable and it especially felt good speaking to someone who really knew where Oxford was and he answered every question we asked him without any hesitation. We all knew as soon as he left the house that we would use this company. We really did make the right decision. On the day of pick up the crew turned up on time and were so professional and careful. I could not believe my eyes, these guys wrapped up everything even the furniture better than I can wrap presents, its a joy to watch, just that was worth the money. They left our apt empty and clean and I did feel at ease with my choice. BUT i still had to wait and stress waiting to see how it arrived !!!! Today I received a call from my wife who is in Oxford UK, to tell me that the delivery crew had just delivered our goods and set everything up for her and everything is in the same shape as it was when it left NY. Perfect !!!! She and the kids are very happy which makes me so happy. I cant explain the feeling I have, I was so concerned that this would be a nightmare as I have been burnt a couple of times moving locally in NYC. But this was so easy. I would recommend NY International to everyone, and I have already talked to a couple of work colleagues today about them and not to stress for months like I did and just call them Once again THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

Moving With Kids

Leave the Stress Behind

Moving overseas can be extremely difficult for anyone, but children seem to be especially sensitive to this kind of change. We have put together some helpful information to assist parents in preparing for moving overseas with kids:

  • Inform your child as soon as you know you are moving to avoid making him/her feel rushed or blind-sided.
  • Lead by example! Remain as positive as possible about your upcoming family relocation when discussing it in front of your children so that they too will feel positive and secure.
  • Educate your child about the new city and country you’ll be relocating to. Things like videos and language learning programs can be fun ways to get him/her more excited and ready for your new home.
  • Answer your child’s questions about where you’ll be moving to.
  • Keep your child busy by giving him/her jobs to do. Jobs may vary based on his/her age, but may include packing toys, making lists, organizing, etc.
  • Pack favorite/security toys in luggage you will be keeping with you so that your child is surrounded by familiar things.
  • Let your child help decorate his/her new room and make him/her a part of picking out new things such as furniture for your new home.
  • Make the trip fun whenever possible by including activities in carry-ons while traveling. Consider making a stop at an exciting attraction along the way.

It is critical to help your child understand what he/she can expect. Younger children may worry about what will happen to their favorite toys or pets, while older children may be concerned with making new friends and attending new schools. If possible, take your child on a trip to see his/her new home and school prior to your family relocation. If your child is able to see everything ahead of time, it may make the actual transition a bit easier. Your child will be able to begin planning what he/she will do after you move with a better understanding of where you are going.

Educating Kids Overseas

Overseas education is often a big concern for families moving overseas with kids. There are many international schools available across the globe and you may want to consider this for if you’re making a short-term move. By attending an international school, your child will be surrounded by peers that are going through similar transitions. Those making long-term moves that choose to attend international schools will not be immersed as quickly in the culture of their new homes, making transitions more gradual and difficult. If you’re planning to stay long-term, you may want to have your child attend a local school for their education overseas. Consider what is available and what may be best for your child in the long-run before making a decision about educating your kids overseas. You may also want to consider allowing your child to have a say in which school he/she feels most comfortable with.

Educating kids on overseas relocation can be difficult, but with NY International Shipping taking care of the relocation details for you, you can focus on your family and make it a peaceful, smooth transition for everyone.
