    What is the purpose of a video survey?

    The purpose of the survey is manifold and is a key stage in planning a move. Most commonly it is described by international movers as a way to accurately identify the volume of items you wish to move to your new location necessary to provide a quotation. However, at Gerson Relocation we use the survey to greater effect, using it to help identify any items that are particularly delicate or those that require special care to ensure we define the correct packing methods to prevent damage.

    For international moves, it is essential to identify those items that have special customs considerations so that we can advise you correctly and how they should be handled from a customs process. Which enables us to minimise your costs.

    We also check important points such as parking and access points to make sure everything goes perfectly when you come to move.

    Where we use Gerson Relocation’s experienced move surveyors, we are able to offer more than a simple volume checking process. They will be able to answer your questions about your move, how we manage each stage of the process and identify the most cost-effective way of managing your move. They can discuss best practices to ensure that your personal possessions and items of personal value arrive at your new home in excellent condition.
