Moving to a new home within the same area is difficult enough, but if you are relocating to a different part of the country the decision making process involved in moving home becomes all the more difficult, due mainly to a lack of local knowledge of the area you are moving to. This is where using a relocation company can be extremely beneficial to you. What could a relocation company do for you?• A relocation company will discuss with you and find out exactly what you are looking for in a home, then will then start searching for properties for you, whether this be rented or bought, 2 bedroomed or 3, they should be able to find you something. • If you are unable to view the properties yourself, the relocation company will view the properties for you and feed back to you the facts about the house, and whether they thought it would satisfy your needs. • When it comes to making offers, playing hardball and negotiating on a final price, the relocation company will completely take over for you, trying to get you the best deal possible. Unlike traditional estate agents, they work solely for you and don’t benefit from the house being sold to you at a higher cost. • A relocation company expert will give you an orientation in your new neighbourhood, they will tour you around the area and make you familiar with it. They will also show you the important things, like where the hospital is, where the doctors and dentists are, where the local shops and supermarkets are located and where your child’s school(s) is located. • They can help you to find and register your child with a good school. As well as registering the family with a doctor and dentist and even registering the pets at a vet.• These companies can help you to move your belongings from your old home to your new home and if your new home is not ready they can arrange temporary accommodation.• The companies can also provide you with information booklets and packs, detailing what is going on in the area, any leisure facilities you might like to use, or clubs you’d like to join. • Help you to settle in, by doing things such as helping to get the telephone and broadband set up, sky television installed, etc. What are the benefits to using a relocations company?• They offer you support throughout the entire move, they understand how difficult this time can be for you and help you in any way possible to ease the strain you feel. • These companies work solely for you, nobody else.
