removals and relocation

What is the difference between Removals and Relocation services?

This is a question that we often get asked because the word relocation means different things to different people. Removals is a very traditional term used for the physical movement of your belongings from one place to another. Some people do refer to this as relocation services but the classic meaning of relocation services generally incorporates support services such as home search, city orientation, school/education advice and cross cultural training.

Relocation support services are normally kick-started way before your removal takes place by exchanging information in the form of a questionnaire, commonly called a needs assessment. This provides essential feedback to your relocation consultant for the preparation of a personalised programme that will incorporate the individual requirements that you are looking for regarding your new lifestyle.

The next step is your arrival at your new destination and at that point you then receive hands on expert advice, guidance and much needed support so that you can make informed decisions right from the start. Good local knowledge relayed in the form of relocation services can save you time, money and a lot of heartache. This is particularly important when it comes to the selection of a suburb and home that has the lifestyle attributes that you are looking for and, in the case of a family situation with children involved, the schooling and education options that are available and assistance in securing places.

So remember, removal services are all about moving your belongings from your current home to your new home and relocation support services include services that help you settle in after the move.
