Relocating is, in the first place, making an agreement with a reliable partner. After all, all of your possessions will be in the hands of strangers.
In practice, your mover can help you with practical advice, gathered through years of experience.
You can always reach us for practical information, for we’re not solely here to bring your possessions from point A to point B.
We hereby like to show you our prices and some practical information.

Once you have set the relocation date, you can start preparations and make a schedule.
Inform all the stakeholders of your relocation in time.
Think of: the moving company, friends or acquaintances that want to help, but also the companies that take care of the gas, water, electricity, telephone company and the post.
We advise you to ask for multiple prices quotes; at Limo J.C. we are aware of our efficient approach and our rates.
You’ll be convinced of this after you’ve consulted other relocation companies.
Avoid surprises and inform yourself in advance about:
What you should know before locating to a new commune:
If you are moving abroad, you have to report this at your local Belgian commune where you are registered. If you are staying abroad for less than one year, you can remain registered in Belgium (you will be considered “temporarily absent”). You will have to report this at your commune once again once you return.
Have you forgotten to report that you are leaving, the commune where you live can give you a certificate of erasement, once you prove you are indeed living abroad. This certificate is necessary to register with the Belgian diplomatic or consular post abroad. This will be registered on your Belgian id-card, but is only valid for two months.
Which formalities must be followed?
Whether you are relocating within Belgium or abroad, you have to report this to the government.
Take your id-card to the town hall, so the department of Population can make the necessary changes. You have to report your change of address, even if you are relocating in the same commune. You have 8 working days to report your new living address. If you cannot go to the town hall yourself, you can do this with a written statement.
If the change of address is for the entire family, one member reporting this will suffice, as long as they are an adult.
If a minor changes address, he has to be accompanied by someone who has parental authority.
In the days after your change of address, a policeman will come by to check the new address.
You risk a fine by not reporting your change of address.
Report your change of address to:
Consult your moving company before you start packing. Pack what you can, once you have the boxes for packing. Are you short of boxes? Call your moving company!
It’s wise to pack per room and label the boxes with the content and the number of the room of the destination. Give each room in the new residence a specific number.
If you so wish, you can make a list of each box with an elaborate description of its content. This will take more time, but helps you find what you’re looking for.
If possible, use the original boxes of the equipment and take precautions for your computer and stereos.
Fill the boxes with newspapers, wrapping paper or blankets. You can unplug the washing machine yourself. Do not forget to drain the remaining water in the machine and put the machine in transport mode if possible to prevent damage.
Tie a rope around the defrosted fridge to prevent the door from opening and make sure it is standing up during the move. Eat everything in the freezer.
Talk to your moving company how to best move and pack fragile objects. Dishes and tableware should be packed with extra attention. Your moving company has special wrapping paper to wrap the tableware in, after which they can be put in boxes. Fragile objects should be wrapped very well to prevent damage.
You could wrap them with blankets, for example. Use special stickers to point out which boxes need extra attention (for example FRAGILE, GLASSWARE).
Heavier objects (such as plates) should be at the bottom of the box.
Fragile glassware (such as wineglasses) and bottles should be upright in the box. Do not pack sharp objects with fragile things.
It is unwise to pack a lot of small, heavy objects (like books) together in one box. Use these books as bottom in the box and put in lighter objects on top of them to fill up the box. The books should be transported lying down to prevent damage to the book cover. Don’t make the boxes too heavy and use small boxes for heavy objects. This makes the moving easier and prevents it from being damaged.
You can hang clothing in special clothing boxes. Your moving company can supply those boxes. This way the clothing will be transported without wrinkling them. Do not fold the clothing, but roll them up to prevent wrinkles.
Curtains and lamps
You can get the curtains off the rails and put them in boxes. Unplug lamps and put them upright in a box. Be careful when packing these objects.
Clocks and paintings
If you have a clock, make sure all of its parts is secured. Leave big (standing) clocks, but also mirrors and paintings to your professional movers to wrap. This way you are certain of the best protection during the move.
Depending on the distance and moving time, we advise you to take plants with you. Smaller plants can be put together in a box, big plants can be handled by the movers.
Cars and motorbikes
Empty the tanks as much as you can and unplug the batteries. Always be watchful for leaking or fragile objects during the move.
Do not leave keys in closets and desks, as they can get lost. Make sure keys, money and cheques are in your hand luggage. Do the same with jewelry and important documents.
Keep your work tools separate, so you can start working in your new residence straight away.
Flammable and dangerous substances
Keep them separate!!!
