Moving is never an easy task, but with proper preparation (and of course, choosing the right moving company!), it will surely save you from any headaches. With so many things to remember, here is a comprehensive checklist of the things you should do for your move. The moving company you choose will also furnish you with convenient labels for sea, air, and storage items.

Take some time to thoughtfully plan goodbye gatherings with the various groups of friends that you have made during your stay in Indonesia, for yourself, your spouse and your children. Recognize that these friends have been your support group through times of crisis, fun, and learning.
