Make a list

One of the most important things you can do when relocating to Malta is to create a list of all your belongings. Not only will this help you keep track of everything, but it also allows you to establish a value statement. This statement can be used towards compensation if any of your items are damaged or lost during the removal process.

Creating a list is especially important if you are moving to a new home that is smaller than your previous home. You may need to downsize and get rid of some items, so having a list will help you determine what to keep or get rid of. Furthermore, having a list will ensure that all your boxes are labelled correctly. And you will know exactly where everything is once you arrive at your new home. It will also help you avoid any unlabelled boxes that may confuse you.

However, even if you have a list, it is crucial to review the terms and conditions of the removal company. This way, you can ensure that you will be compensated if any of your items are damaged or lost during the removal process.

Overall, creating a list of your belongings is a simple yet effective way to ensure that your relocation to Malta goes as smoothly as possible.

 

Request insurance

Most removal companies will offer you damage insurance to cover any unforeseen incidents that may occur during transportation.

It is always a good decision to request insurance to give you peace of mind. Most removal companies’ insurance policies will cover your belongings from the moment they are loaded onto the truck until they are unloaded at your new residence. If you have valuable or fragile items, it’s important to let the removal company know, as they may require additional coverage.

Make sure to ask the removal company about their insurance policy and what it covers. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, and requesting insurance will help ensure that your belongings are protected.

 

Terms and conditions

Before loading and after delivery of your belongings, it is crucial to sign a waybill. This document specifies the terms and conditions of the removal company’s duties to uphold when transporting your items. By signing this document, you acknowledge that you have read and agreed to the terms and conditions.

Other terms and conditions may specify the services that the removal company will provide. For example, some companies may only provide packing and transportation services, while others may offer additional services such as unpacking and reassembling furniture.

It is crucial to read and understand all the terms and conditions before signing the waybill. If you have any questions or concerns, it is essential to seek clarification from the removal company before signing.
