Guiding you through the relocation process as part of your international assignment
If you are going on assignment with your employer, then a relocation support package can help you focus on making your new role a success in the knowledge that everything is being taken care of in the background.
What are relocation services?
The term “relocation” relates to the broader process of finding a home, arranging schooling, the household goods move and the process of settling-in and adjusting to the new environment. “Relocation services” are designed to support this broader requirement, encompassing both the logistical and emotional needs of the family unit.
Let our experienced Client Services Manager guide you
We provide you with an experienced Client Services Manager who will be your primary point of contact throughout your relocation. They will expertly guide you through each stage and provide you with support whenever you need it.
Your Gerson Client Services Manager will conduct your initial consultation call to understand your specific requirements, what is most important to you and then develop a relocation plan to meet these needs within your company’s policy.
Focusing on your relocation experience
We focus on ensuring your relocation experience runs as smoothly and effectively as possible. In our years of managing international relocations, we have found that by focusing on understanding the needs of the people we relocate first, everything works better.
By taking this approach, the people we relocate are happier and better prepared for their arrival at their new location. Relocation costs are also managed based on needs and what is going to create the best outcomes which is more effective. By focusing on ensuring the relocation experience is managed as effectively as possible, we create better results for everyone.
Integrating moving and relocation
Where we are the selected household goods international mover, we can combine the home move as part of a complete international relocation services package. Below are some of the key services we offer:
As part of a pre-assignment visit, our team of Client Services Managers and local area experts work together to ensure you are supported locally, are familiarised with your new location and able to settle-in more easily.
We ensure all transfers are by a reputable, approved and friendly driver. Our airport collection services make sure relocating you are safe when travelling in a new location. This can make a huge difference when arriving in an unknown country with little time.
Serviced and temporary accommodation
Serviced accommodation is useful for business travellers and short-term assignments. It costs roughly the same as a hotel per night if you are staying longer than 28 nights which makes them popular and sometimes difficult to source. Our team of experienced Client Services Managers and our local area experts have preferential arrangements in key destinations and can find serviced apartments in line with the needs of your relocation and budgets. Where serviced accommodation is not the best option, we are able to provide a range of alternative options to suit your requirements.
Home search – rentals
Finding the right leased property is a challenge in any location. Our team of Client Services Managers and locally based home search consultants will help you find the perfect rented accommodation that meets your needs, while also taking your relocation policy, budget and local legislative requirements into account.
As one of the biggest considerations of anyone relocating, your children’s education is something that needs to be approached carefully. Our team of Client Services Managers and local education experts will find education options and schools that provide your children with a safe and happy education.
We manage the door-to-door movement of your household goods. Our service includes the pre-move survey, professional packing, shipping, storage, customs clearance and delivery to your new home.
From learning about your new country, to making sure your home is set-up and utilities connected and you have everything you need to start your new role and life in a new country, our team of Client Services Managers and local area experts will help you settle-in to your new home properly and make a success of your relocation.
Relocating to a new country can be extremely confusing due to cultural differences between each location. Our cultural training providers will remove the culture shock you may face in your new home location.
It’s difficult for you and your family to settle when you don’t understand the local language. Our language training providers can help you and your family learn the language of your new country to give you a head start.
The growing number of dual career families means that companies relocating their employees often need to support their partner’s career aspirations as part of a relocation process. Our partner support process assists your accompanying partner in furthering their career whilst on assignment.
If you are in a rental property whilst on assignment, our tenancy management service ensures that repairs are completed and that landlords honour the terms of their lease. Our tenancy management experts will manage everything from lease agreements to inventories and deposit recovery.
Leases and lease renewal
Our lease review service helps to prevent against unusual clauses and costs being included. We also manage the renewal process where required. Our Client Services Managers and tenancy management experts can also renegotiate the lease.
Ending an assignment is just as complex as beginning one. Our departure services ensure you have all the support you need to finalise and close down all local commitments such as lease termination, utility disconnection, and memberships before moving back to your home country, or to the next assignment location.
Local support worldwide
Our relocation services are available worldwide and we only use the best and accredited partners in each destination. This includes everything from pre-move services, to settling-in services and everything else required to support the people we relocate.
