Concierge Services - Assistance with the relocation process
Moving home is commonly known to be one of the most challenging life events, and even more so if you are emigrating abroad.
If you are moving to the UK, our concierge and international relocation services can take the stress out of your move. We can handle not just the actual international relocation of your belongings to the UK, but also a host of other related services, depending on your needs.
From finding a suitable property for purchase in the UK, to arranging the international transportation of your belongings, vehicles, and pets, and then unpacking your belongings and even signing up for local healthcare service and utilities….we can handle every detail, so that you don’t have to.
The services you agree with us will be tailored to the specific needs of you and your family. We strive hard to ensure your high expectations are met and understand the importance of making sure every stage goes smoothly and efficiently.
We are excited to work closely with you on this important move and to help you get settled into your new home in the UK as seamlessly as possible.
Why choose us?
Moving to the UK or any new country involves many time-consuming, demanding jobs and administrative tasks that can sometimes seem overwhelming. You may be going through an immigration process of applying for a visa or citizenship, and on top of that you may also need to handle securing a new property, possibly selling your existing home, arranging the move, and maybe even arranging for your beloved pets to move with you. And then there’s actually getting through the day of the move including flying internationally, and from there getting settled in a new country with all that that entails. It’s a tall order for anyone.
