Five Reasons to Move to Italy

September 15th, 2017 Comments off

Italy brings a number of images to mind: a country in the shape of a boot, jutting into the Mediterranean; the land that spawned the Romans; the place where some of the greatest artists and thinkers lived and worked; and of course, the place where pasta was perfected.
Yes, Italy is all of that. But, it’s also a vibrant, modern place to live. Read on to discover five reasons to move to Italy.

Reason 1: The Food
Okay, we know we just said that Italy isn’t all about the food, but you can’t leave food off the list when talking about this country.
While pizza and pasta might be the first things you think of, don’t limit yourself to those options. There’s amazing, fresh produce, fantastic seafood and let’s not forget about the decadent gelato. Mangia bene!

Reason 2: Amazing Culture
Italy is steeped in thousands of years of history, yet it also embraces modernity. It celebrates its past while its residents very much live in the present.
You can attend religious festivals, watch horse races, and cheer on gondoliers in Venice dressed as witches in the winter without having to give up your cell phone, laptop or other modern conveniences. When you’re done, don’t forget to grab a bite to eat.

Reason 3: Excellent Public Transport
Want to get from Rome to a northern village for a religious festival you’ve been dying to witness? You can do it, thanks to Italy’s public transport system.
The public transport system connects the country from north to south. In the cities, it’s reliable and inexpensive. Furthermore, you don’t have to put your life at risk – Italian drivers are notorious for being reckless and disobeying the rules of the road.

Reason 4: Stunning Scenery
Italy is full of natural and manmade beauty, and you can find it across the country. It can even be as close as outside of your window.
Take Calabria in the southern part of the country – it’s got phenomenal views of mountains, the sea and picturesque villages. Then there’s Florence in the north. The city dates back to Roman times, although it’s best known for being the cradle of the Renaissance. You could spend ages exploring all of the architectural and artistic gems in Florence.

Reason 5: A Zest for Life
Although “joie de vivre” is a French term, Italians definitely possess this quality in spades. They have a passion for living.
This passion for living manifests itself in Italy’s food, its art, its language, and the country’s culture. The minute you step off the plane, you’ll feel like you’re on the path to la dolce vita.

5 Reasons to Move to Dubai

August 23rd, 2017 Comments off

Are you considering a move to Dubai, the largest and most populous city in the United Arab Emirates? You’re not alone – many people move there for work.

What are some of the benefits of moving to this vibrant city-state? We’ve rounded up the top five reasons you should move to Dubai, and if you’re moving there already, this is what you have to look forward to.

Reason 1: The Weather
The weather in Dubai is amazing if you love soaking up the sun’s rays. Dubai has an average of 342 sunny days per year. And those sunny days are warm – the temperature rarely drops below 20 degrees Celsius.

If you’re from a colder climate, such as Canada, you finally have the chance to sit outside in December and not see a single snowflake. And because Dubai enjoys such fabulous weather, that means there’s plenty of things to do, which brings us to Reason 2…

Reason 2: Lots of Activities
Love the beach? Dubai has a long coastline with miles and miles of sand. Do you prefer your sand without water? Dubai’s desert makes a great place for a camping excursion.

If you’re not an outdoors person, don’t worry. There are plenty of things to do inside. Dubai has fantastic, moderately priced restaurants, lots of shopping, cinemas, ice rinks, and aquariums. Whatever you like to do, you can find it in Dubai.

Reason 3: No Taxes
Nothing in life is certain except for death and taxes… unless you’re in Dubai. The emirate is tax-free.
You don’t pay taxes on your salary. You don’t pay taxes on any purchases you make. That means there’s more money in your pocket at the end of the month. Expats who move to Dubai can amass quite a large amount of savings if they’re savvy.

Reason 4: Generous Salaries
One of the reasons people move to Dubai for work is because the salaries are higher than they would be in their home countries. Why wouldn’t you want to be paid more to work in a country with fantastic weather and lots of attractions?

And when you’re not paying taxes on a large salary, there’s more take-home pay. At the end of the day, you come out
ahead on the deal.

Reason 5: Just Because It’s in the Desert, Doesn’t Mean It’s in the Middle of Nowhere
When you think of Dubai, the first thing that comes to mind is, “It’s in a desert.” But that doesn’t mean it’s cut off from the rest of the world.
You can easily catch a flight to Europe or Asia from Dubai. If you’ve always wanted to see other parts of the world, now’s your chance!

Your List of Moving Day Essentials

August 9th, 2017 Comments off

We know – moving is stressful. There’s so much to do and pack. The big day can be even more mentally taxing; you’re rushing around, trying to check off everything on your to-do list. Once you’re finally moved in, you might realize that amidst the hubbub that you’ve forgotten something important, such as your toothbrush.
That’s why we’ve compiled a list of moving day essentials. Read on to discover what things you absolutely need to have for moving day.

The Things that Keep You Running
Today, you need your cell phone, laptop and/or tablet. And those devices need to be charged. Don’t pack those items – keep them in an easy-to-access place. The same goes for spare batteries for any devices.
If you take medication or vitamins, keep them with you as well. It’s expensive to get emergency refills.

The Things that Keep You Comfortable
Imagine this: you finish unpacking and you order takeout. You look around for something to eat off of, and realize you don’t have anything. Or, you spilled some soda over dinner and want to clean it off, but you’ve got no paper towels.
Bring tissues, toilet paper, paper towels, recyclable plates and cutlery so that the first night in your new home is comfortable and pleasant. If you’re planning on taking a shower, take along a shower curtain, too.

The Things that You Need for the Move (and Beyond)
It might seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how many people wind up packing important items and documents such as their wallets or paperwork for the purchase or lease of their new home. You might need to pay for an unexpected expense, so you need your credit card available.
Consider carrying a backpack with these necessities in them, and don’t let it out of sight until you’ve finished moving. It’s helpful to pack snacks and some water in this bag, too, so you don’t get hungry or thirsty.

The Intangible Things that Make the Move Go Smoother
While you might have excellent reasons for moving and you’re looking forward to starting a new life someplace else, the process of moving is headache-inducing. Everyone approaches it with a sense of dread.
However, your attitude and how you respond to the situation plays a role in the moving experience. If you’re flexible, have a sense of humour and are patient, the move won’t be so bad. Also, the more organized you are, the smoother it will go – you won’t be scrambling to do things at the last minute, which is very stressful.

Orbit International Moving Logistics Ltd.: Your Moving Experts
Here’s another thing that makes the moving process go better: choosing experienced, professional movers.

How Much Should I Budget for Utilities After Moving?

August 1st, 2017 Comments off

When you think of moving, the first thing that comes to mind is packing. However, there are other things to consider.
One of those things is how much you should budget for your utility bill after you move. Read on to learn about the amount of money you’d need to budget for utilities at both your current address and your future address without wasting money.

Why Is Budgeting for Utilities Important?

Unless you’re not paying for utilities in either your current property, your new property or both properties, knowing how much you’re going to pay for electricity, water and other vital services is crucial.
Why is it so vital? The utilities company expects you to pay for the utilities you use in your current home. Once you move, you’ll have to start paying for utilities there, too. You don’t want to pay for utilities for both homes.

What You Need to Keep in Mind When Budgeting for Utilities

Utility companies typically charge customers for two things in addition to the utilities themselves: to connect your utilities and to turn off your utilities.

If you don’t disconnect your utilities after you move, you’ll continue to receive bills (even though you’re not living there and not using those utilities!). And, if you don’t pay to get your utilities connected after you move in, you won’t have access to electricity or water.
It’s also a good idea to keep the lights (and water and whatever other utilities you’ve got) turned on for one day after you’re scheduled to move. That way, if there’s a problem with your move and you’re stuck at your old place, the stay will be more pleasant – especially in seasons with extreme temperatures such as winter or summer.

Call your utility company and ask them how far in advance of your move you need to notify them of your move. If you’re moving to another country, this might be a bit more difficult. Instead, find an online forum for other expats who can walk you through the process.
Bear in mind that if you’re moving into a larger place, your electricity bill will be higher than it was previously. Also, some jurisdictions have more expensive electricity rates than others. Do a little research before you move so you won’t be hit by sticker shock when you get your first bill.

City-to-City Movers: A City-to-City Moving Checklist

July 13th, 2017 Comments off

Are you considering moving between cities? You might think it’s less of a headache than moving between countries. After all, you don’t have to learn a new language, you can most likely find your favourite food at the grocery store, and you’ll still be using the same currency.
However, there are still some things you’ll need to keep in mind. Read on for our city-to-city moving checklist so your move can be smooth and hassle-free.

Think about the Cost
You might think that it’s cheaper to move things yourself. The truth is that it depends on the situation.
How much stuff are you moving? Do you have large paintings, heavy furniture or antiques? If you can toss all of your things in a couple of boxes or suitcases and then shove them into the trunk, then you don’t need a moving company. There’s a pretty good chance that description doesn’t fit you, though.

At the very least, you most likely have heavy furniture. You’ll need a truck, and it might be cheaper to go with a professional moving company than to rent a truck and drive to a new city. When it comes to cost, think about the cost of your time. It might take you much longer to accomplish a job that professional movers would complete in half the time.

Think about Safety
In addition to the aspect of cost, take a second to regard safety (that of yourself, anyone who’s helping you move, and that of your belongings).
Professional movers know how to move objects of all sizes safely so they don’t injure themselves, you or your stuff. Moreover, they know how to pack your things properly so they won’t get damaged during the journey.

Get References and Quotes for Moving Companies
If you’re going to be moving from one city to another and you want to use a professional moving company, you need to get references and quotes. Ask others who have made similar moves about which movers they’ve used. They can tell you whom they loved (and whom they didn’t).

Just remember that references aren’t the only thing you should be looking at. Once you talk to some of the companies, ask for quotes. When it comes to quotes, bear in mind that cheaper isn’t always better. It’s a low quote because it might not include things like a truck or packing materials. Go for the most reasonable quote that includes the greatest number of services.

Orbit International Moving Logistics Ltd: Your Moving Experts
If you’re moving from one city to another, contact Orbit International Moving Logistics Ltd. Don’t be fooled by our name – we don’t only handle international moves. We can help you move from city to city, whether that city is 45 minutes away or across the country.

Cheap Moving Tips: Save Money When Moving House

June 28th, 2017 Comments off

When people think of moving, they groan about how long packing is going to take them, and what a pain in the neck the whole process is. However, there’s another complaint that people don’t always consider: moving is expensive.
Well, to be more accurate, moving can be expensive. But, there are ways to save money. Read on to learn about how to make the moving process cheaper.

Set a Schedule

This might sound more like organizational advice than a budgeting tip, though it’s actually a very important way to save money.
When you do things at the last minute, you have to scramble, and that leads to costlier choices. Let’s say you realized you don’t have enough bubble paper. Sure, you can find an all-night office supply store, but it might be more expensive than the stores that closed hours ago.

Compare Quotes, Carefully

You might think that you should choose the cheapest moving company on the market. “That will save me money, right?” you ask.
The answer is, “not necessarily.” You get what you pay for; there’s a reason the quote is so cheap. Read the fine print to learn exactly what it includes. The movers might not bring the right packing materials, which could lead to your belongings becoming damaged. It doesn’t save you any money if you have to buy new dishes.

Purge before You Pack

Even if you live in a small space such as an apartment or condo, you’ve still probably accumulated a great deal of stuff. The more stuff you have, the more it will cost to move.
Sort through your things. If you haven’t used something in the past six months and you can’t come up with a rationale for using it in your new place, sell it, recycle it, or throw it out.

Select the Right Season, If Possible

It will cost you more to move during some seasons than others. Summer is the most expensive moving season because it’s the most popular. People with kids want to move before the school year starts, and many companies experience a slowdown in the summer, so employees worry less about missing work.
Moving in the spring, fall, or winter is more affordable. You might be saying to yourself, “Well, that’s nice, but my schedule doesn’t permit me to move during that season. What do I do?”. If you absolutely must move during the summer, try to move on a weekday. Not many people move during the week, making it somewhat cheaper than the weekends. And book in advance – the longer you wait, the less chance you have of being able to book an available truck.

Safety Tips for Moving Furniture

June 22nd, 2017 Comments off

You’ve probably seen movies or TV shows in which the main characters try to move furniture and fail hilariously (scenes of furniture hurtling down flights of stairs or getting stuck around corners seems to be a comedic goldmine).

While the scene might make you laugh, you definitely don’t want that to happen to you in real life. Read on to learn safety tips for moving furniture so that you protect yourself and your property.

Get the Right Equipment
Take a good look at that solid bookcase – you know, the one that your Aunt Ruth left you. It’s made of oak, and it’s at least 70 years old.
Well, if I take everything off of it, the bookcase should be much lighter,” you say to yourself. “Once it’s empty, I just tilt it and I’ll be good to go.

If you want to move the bookcase (or any other heavy furniture), you need the right equipment. A dolly, furniture slides and lifting straps are all crucial to ensuring your furniture doesn’t become damaged and you don’t hurt your back.

Lift Properly
Have you ever heard someone tell someone else, “Lift with your legs!” That’s not just some old wives’ tale – it’s actually good advice.

Moreover, you should lift gradually. Don’t make jerky movements – you’ll hurt yourself. And keep your back straight. That will reduce injuries.

Carry Carefully
You should carry tall or long items (such as filing cabinets, sofas and wardrobes)at an angle. And don’t do it by yourself – these pieces of furniture are heavy.
Large chairs and recliners are cumbersome, which is why you should carefully flip the chair on its side and hook the back around the doorway.

Don’t Rush and Don’t Overdo It
When you’re moving furniture, it’s important to take your time. Rushing leads to mistakes, which in turn lead to injuries to your body and damage to the furniture.

Also, don’t lift more than an amount with which you’re comfortable. Moving furniture isn’t a weight-lifting contest, and you shouldn’t do it to impress someone. If the furniture is too heavy for you, put it down and call in professional movers. There’s no shame in hiring outside help. In fact, it’s better to call a moving company than to hurt yourself because you were too proud to admit the job was too big for you to handle.

The Professional Packers’ Guide: All You Need to Know

May 24th, 2017 Comments off

If you’re getting ready to move (whether it’s across town or across the world), packing is probably the part of the process that you’re least excited about. You want to get your life started in a new place, but all of the stuff you’ve accumulated over time has to be dealt with.
That’s why we’ve created this guide based on the advice of professional movers. This guide will make the process easier and less stressful, so you can get excited again about the next chapter in your life.

Start Sorting Early

If you’re moving to a smaller place, there will be things that you won’t have room for. Even if you’re moving to a larger home, you’ve most likely accumulated quite a bit of stuff over the years. Not all of it is useful, and if that description fits an item, there’s no reason it should come with you.

Once you’ve decided you’ll be moving, start sorting through your belongings. If you can’t remember you even had an item in your possession, that’s a good sign you should either donate it to charity or throw it out.
Sorting through things early on makes moving easier – you’re not rushed or stressed when the time comes to move.

Consider Customs and Other Regulations

After you’ve sorted through your things and have decided what you’re going to bring with you, you should think about customs or other regulations if you’re moving abroad. Many countries have customs regulations – authorities will tax you if you bring in certain items (usually alcohol and tobacco products). Moreover, many countries have bans on certain items – the consulate or embassy of that country will have a list, so consult it before packing.

Even if you’re moving domestically, there are certain things that moving companies might not be able to transport. Check with your moving company before you break out the boxes.

Pack with Care Using Quality Materials

If you’re bringing fragile items such as plates, make sure they’re wrapped individually with a paper that won’t leave smudges. Don’t make any one box too heavy; you won’t be able to pick it up otherwise.
Use sturdy boxes. You don’t want them to fall apart during the move. When it comes to items such as antiques and paintings, putting them in crates might be a wise decision. Crates will protect them during the move. Crating should be left to professional movers.

Why Move to Malta?

May 10th, 2017 Comments off

Malta is a tiny island state located in the Mediterranean. Every year, people move to Malta for a variety of reasons. Some of them are freelance professionals, while others want to retire in the comparatively warm climate.

Read on to learn more about why people are moving to Malta – maybe you’ll be convinced, too!

Affordability

Malta is one of the most affordable places to live in the EU.
You can buy a pint of beer at an off-the-beaten-path pub for as little as €1.50. Moreover, public transportation is fairly reasonable, too – it costs €0.75 per bus ride. And if you’ve got a bus pass, you won’t spend more than €26 per month on getting around by bus. Utilities tend to be inexpensive in comparison to other EU member states, depending on your immigration status.

The Weather

Malta is known for its fantastic weather – it gets 300 days of sunshine per year! The temperatures are still high even into October (something you won’t find in some parts of Canada). So, don’t forget your hat, and stock up on sunscreen!
In the winter, it’s quite rare for temperatures to fall below 10 degrees Celsius. Just be aware that buildings aren’t as well insulated in Malta as they are in Canada, and there’s no central heating. Wear sweaters, cuddle up and have some hot cocoa.

Safety

Malta is one of the safest places to live in the EU.
The country has 0.3 incidents of violent crime per 1,000 residents. Cyprus is the only EU member with a lower rate of violent crime. In fact, many native Maltese still leave their cars and homes unlocked.

English Is an Official Language

When you move to Malta, you don’t have to worry about surviving in a foreign language. English is one of the official languages of Malta.
Everything you need will be in English – government documents, signs, menus, etc. In addition, 88% of the population speaks English. If you want to learn Maltese (a mixture of Italian and Arabic), go for it! Native Maltese will appreciate it. However, you can still get around quite well only in English.

Laidback Lifestyle, Friendly People

Life in Malta runs at a slower pace. This is great news if you’re looking to escape the rat race (although if you’ve got a Type A personality, Malta might not be the place for you).

The Maltese are some of the friendliest people on Earth. They are helpful, hospitable and warm – even to foreigners. You’ll feel at home right away.

If you’re interested in moving to Malta, contact Orbit International Moving Logistics Ltd. today. We’ve got over a decade of experience moving people around the globe.
