FIDI's ultimate goal is to position its members as the movers of choice for global relocation. They can help with all aspects of overseas removal and storage.
If you aremoving to Lithuania, it is recommended that you have the removal company pack your stuff for you. Obviously, you could pack yourself, but you could also save yourself time and hassle. The expertise of a removal company when packing items for shipping is invaluable, and if you decide to pack yourself, you will have to be wise on labeling boxes as PBO (Packed By Owner). This will make customs more likely to examine your belongings, sometimes causing you a delay and extra costs, which is the last hindrance you need. If you do pack, make sure you start as soon as you know you are moving. For overseas moves, it is best to begin packing and getting yourself organized a few months before you move; even earlier if possible.
