What Does a Relocation Company Do?

Staff Writer · Jan 4, 2010

A relocation company can make moving a thing that’s anticipated (rather than dreaded) by taking the things that are undesirable about moving and doing them for you. You can use a moving service for as little or as much of the move as you want. For instance, if there’s only one aspect of the move that you find troubling, enlist the service for only that work. Here are some of the things that the company can take care of during your next move.

Paperwork Assistance

A relocation company usually offers help with paperwork needed for your move. This is particularly desired if one is going through an immigration process or visitation relocation. The company can go through all the paperwork for visas or other long-term documentation needed for your stay. It can walk you through the process and be your voice and legs in the city in which you are soon to move.

Your New Home

A relocation service can find you a new home in your desired city and neighborhood, even if you’ve never set foot in the city where you will soon reside. Accommodations can be short-term or long-term. You can dictate whether you want a house or apartment. You can even pick the neighborhood. In such a digital age, some agents even let you get live feeds of places that they visit for you. Inquire for specifics on how the agency you’re considering provides this service.

Job Hunt

If you are relocating for your career and taking your spouse along for the ride, a relocation service can work toward finding a job for your spouse. This can help the transition go more smoothly for both of you. It can alleviate the stress your spouse would feel while trying to settle in and job hunt. Even if it ends up being a temporary position, having a job set in the new town is comforting to many people.

Helping Your Kids

A relocation service can help find schools near your place of residence for your kids to attend. You can give specifics on the type of school you require for your children, and the agent may even help you find a place to live based upon the school that’s ultimately chosen for your child. A relocation agent is also usually willing to speak directly to your children to also get an idea of what they are seeking in a school. While the choice is ultimately yours, being a part of this process can help your kids feel empowered during the move.

Language Help

Relocation companies also help people moving into a country who don’t speak its primary language. It can arrange for an in-home language tutor for kids or language classes for the whole family to attend. This is a service that should be used if one hopes to succeed in the new country. Language barriers can keep one stagnant.

Moving Coordination

A relocation service can also coordinate things with a moving truck and service. If you plan to have a moving truck arriving before you do, you may be able to work with the moving company to have an agent there to assist with the reception of your items at the chosen accommodations. The relocation service can also help by introducing you to movers initially, and they can help with finding boxes and even with the initial shopping you’ll have to do once you arrive in your new city.

All relocation companies are different, and each one varies in the services it offers. This is a general overview of what you can expect from them.
