Relocation settling-in services
Prepared for performance
Experience shows that better-informed transferees are more likely to adjust to the experience and make it a success earlier.
There’s a big difference between visiting a place and living there. Add in the weight of expectation that accompanies an assignment or transfer and the potential for difficulty is magnified. As corporate relocations have expanded and our company has grown, we have learned how to increase the likelihood of success.
Home-finding trips are not a vacation; they're more of a fact-finding mission.
With people on the ground all over the nation and in nearly 60 countries internationally, we are well placed to manage a preview trip or home-finding trip to any destination.
All our consultants are passionate about their locations. Their local knowledge, combined with a breadth of experience helping transferees, gives them unique insight into how to get things done in their cities.
They’ll create a fully accompanied tailor-made preview trip—each one a positive, in-depth introduction to any location; addressing all specific concerns, ensuring the visit is effective and objective.
Every destination offers a wide range of accommodation styles to suit the needs, lifestyle and budget.
We’ll impartially explain the options available, advising on different residential areas, community facilities, safety and entertainment—keeping in mind the transferee’s needs and budget.
Our consultants are prominent in local housing markets and able to negotiate and coordinate all the formalities in securing a new home for purchase or rent.
For international relocations, our property services extend to helping with departure, concluding a contract, and exiting a property with minimum cost and effort.
On arrival, we can help to make the process of setting up a property as simple as possible during those overwhelming first days and weeks, whether the relocation is within Canada or overseas.
For international relocations, we can even take care of organizing basic utilities, advising on banking, driver’s licenses, insurance services and local registrations.
Particularly helpful for international assignees with family, our settling-in orientation service helps everyone get to know their new neighborhood. Similar to a preview trip, orientation takes into account the many immediate questions that arriving in a new place can create.
Preparation is everything, but there will always be surprises. Your employees will need support, and we’ll be there.
