Corporate Relocations Need Experienced Help

April 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 169

For many people with a sense of adventure moving overseas is one of the choices they will make. For most young people, the move will depend on their culture, language and knowledge of their destination country. This is typically not about a career move but something that needs to be done before settling down to a career and family life. There is not a lot of effort needed as they do not need to worry about the logistics of moving a home. They simply pack whatever they can in a suitcase and go.

It is quite a bit different though if you are making a career choice, particularly if you have a family to consider. Corporate relocations could be in another state or anywhere in the world. If it is an overseas move it may be to a country where you be unfamiliar with the language, culture, customs, food and general way of life. In these cases getting experienced help is a sensible approach to what is a stressful and daunting period of time.

Unless you have a human resource department that has in depth knowledge of your new country the best option is to find a relocations consultant in that country. Packing, transporting and unpacking your belongings quickly becomes a small, but nonetheless important task as compared to finding a new home, schools for children and settling in to life in new surroundings. Some of the questions you might ask yourself before moving overseas are:

• How do I find a new home and what is the quality of homes available? Will it be similar to what I am used to be living in?

• What are the rental requirements - terms, deposits and obligations on my part?

• What is the right location to live in? Will it be safe for my family?

• How quickly will I be able to move in?

• What schools is there that will best suit my children? Are they in an area close to where we want to live?

• What other activities such as sport and gyms are available and are they close to my new home?

Choosing a home is therefore not just about finding one close to the office. It is complicated if you have variables such as those above. The more criteria you have the fewer options you will have to choose from. The real question is whether you have the experience and time to do this effectively and whether your best course of action is to have a specialist help you through the process.

The best way to find such professionals is to engage removalists that have services to cater for your needs. In fact most times in choosing international removalists with offices overseas you will find that they have expatriates that have gone through the same issues as you and have firsthand experience that is invaluable. They have relationships with local real estate companies and understand the landscape of your new country. Importantly, they will work with you before you leave your home country. They will be completely aware of your needs hopefully have everything in place well before you arrive.

Your strategy for moving overseas therefore should be to assess all your needs first and then choose a moving company that can satisfy all of them.

Geoff Cooper has undertaken a number of overseas assignments including two to Asia. His moving overseas experiences has been significantly enhanced by using the right removalists with international expertise that have a broad range of services to help families settle into their new location quickly and easily.
