Expert packing tips for Macau removals
Properly packing your belongings helps avoid damage during transit. For the best results, we suggest hiring a professional packing service to save stress. Otherwise, take your time and follow our top tips below. For further expert advice, check out How to choose a box for shipping and How to pack our boxes.
Make a list of everything in your home and decide what you really need to take to Macau. After all, the less you ship, the cheaper it will be!
Be careful with valuable items:
Fold in the flaps of your box and seal using three overlapping layers of parcel tape. Repeat at the lid once full. Use bubble wrap on every item and use three layers for fragile goods. Place heavy things at the bottom and lighter items above and away from the sides.
Fill gaps with cushioning materials like towels and packing paper. Once complete, give your box a shake. If you hear a sound, add more materials till it's silent.
Secure a parking spot for our vehicle:
Purchase any necessary parking tickets or permits for our vehicle. Doing so allows our driver to park within twenty metres of your building's entrance and ensures a successful collection day.
A trolly is available to help transport your containers to our vehicle. Our driver can offer tips and answer questions but must be able to keep the van within eyesight at all times.
Get ready for collection day:
Move all your containers as close to your building's exit as possible the evening before. For your and our driver's safety, the maximum weight for each container is 30kg/66lbs.
Weigh each box, bag and suitcase on bathroom scales. If one is over the limit, transfer some items to a lighter container until it's under.
From start to finish, it was a pleasure. Seven Seas Worldwide's communication via e-mail and telephone was great. I never had to call them to follow up — their systems worked. The drivers were very helpful and friendly. It was the easiest part of my immigration process!Debbie
Moving to Macau: an expat's essential guide
Macau people embrace both their multicultural heritage and a modern way of life. They are known for their warmth, hospitality and a strong sense of community. So, if you're looking for a traditional home to raise a family that doubles as an entertainment and shopping mecca, the City of Dreams could be for you. But before you rush to the airport, we've put together a few essential facts to help with your relocation:
Types of visas: visitors from over seventy countries can reside for up to 180 days visa-free, depending on the nationality. To live and work in Macau, you must apply for a visa before arriving.
Job opportunities: as a thriving tourist hotspot, expats have ample job opportunities in the entertainment and gaming industries. Other in-demand roles include bankers, retail staff and IT professionals.
Healthcare: taxation funds Macau's health services. Expats can enjoy access to free healthcare with a valid ID. Private healthcare is also available for shorter wait times and a broader range of services.
Education: children receive fifteen years of free, compulsory schooling if enrolled at schools meeting specific requirements. World-ranked institutions include the University of Macau and the Macau University of Science and Technology (MUST).
Lifestyle: enjoy a lively urban environment packed with culture, entertainment and yearly sunshine. From choosing which glamorous restaurant to dine at to lazing on golden beaches, there's plenty for expats to enjoy.
Relocation checklist for overseas moves
Even though our international removers make shipping household items easy, this handy checklist helps you prepare for the big move itself:
- Gather your paperwork: keep all important documents, such as birth certificates and bank statements, in one place for quick access if needed.
- Apply for a visa: research Macau visas, then apply for one that suits you and your family's needs and await approval.
- Arrange accommodation: either sell or rent your current home, then buy or rent once in Macau. Renting lets you adjust to your new surroundings before making a significant decision, like buying a home.
- Book international movers: get a quick free quote on our website, then choose an appropriate date so we can collect your home belongings.
- Arrange travel: book flights ahead of your shipment so you can settle into your new home stress-free.
- Sort your finances: let your banks know you're leaving the country, and take out some Macanese pataca to cover any last-minute purchases or emergencies.
- Speak to a doctor: ask for a three-month supply of your current medications to last until you find a healthcare provider in Macau.
- Pet relocation: if your furry best friends are moving with you, arrange for their vaccinations and buy a safe pet carrier. You must show proof of immunisation by an accredited vet with ten days of travel and obtain a pet import permit.
- Have a declutter: carefully choose which home goods you'll ship to Macau. Sell, donate or recycle whatever you're leaving behind.
- Pack your belongings: place your home possessions into sturdy containers. To guarantee a successful loading day, move all your boxes, bags and suitcases as close to your building's entrance the evening before.
- Settle into your new home: once your shipment successfully passes through customs, log into your account and arrange delivery to your new home. All that's left to do now is unpack, relax, and settle into your exciting new life in the Far East!
