When moving in Stockholm, you need information about the life in the city. You have to discover and learn from genuine experiences of the expatriate community. It would be helpful to read and participate in expat forums and blogs. Here are some important things to remember before moving to Stockholm.
At least three months prior to moving, you may have to obtain visas, work permits and other legal documents. Sort which belongings you want to bring with you in Stockholm and which things you want to leave behind. Also consider that it might be better to purchase things in the city instead of bringing these stuff with you. Make a list of all you need to have and do. Careful planning will help the move go without hassle.
It is advisable to make certain that you already have a place in the city for your convenience and smooth transition. Scout for a place months before your scheduled move to Stockholm. It is a good thing if you have someone in the city to look and negotiate for you.
The city offers apartments, villa, condominium, and more. These can vary from your budget and taste. Some property owners would consult websites to present their properties to interested buyers: some would want to directly close the deal with the buyers while others would choose to have a realtor to help them offer the place to interested buyers.
When it’s the time to move, it is wiser to get professional movers. Choosing a reliable moving company is essential to any expatriation project. Make sure that they have a large network to assure you quality service and specialized internal quality processes and packaging.
Also for non Swedish speaker, it is essential to enroll yourself in a Swedish class. The city offers you the finest schools.
