Why do people relocate to the UK?

Many people decide to relocate to the UK for work, love, family reasons or simply for a change of lifestyle.

Some employers will offer a relocation package and take care of all the paperwork but you still need to find your own accommodation.  Or you may not know the area you are moving to and might not be able to get the area you are moving to, prior to your move.

If this is the case, using a relocation service can be priceless!

Enjoy your time when you relocate to the UK

Here are the 8 main reasons why you should consider using such a service when you relocate to the UK –

1. Local knowledge

If you use a smaller, local relocation agent in the town or city you are moving to then they will have the best knowledge of the area.  One example of this is Steel City Relocation Services who offer relocation services for people moving to Sheffield and the surrounding areas. They have a lifetime of experience of the area, they know which areas are best suited to your needs.

2. A good understanding of your requirements

A relocation service can get your brief and look for appropriate housing. They have the inside knowledge of which areas would work best for you.  This is particularly relevant if you have a family and need good schools. Similarly they will know of what kind of amenities are available which would suit your lifestyle.

3.  They will do your viewings and give you advice

A relocation agent will view the properties on your behalf. They will be able to see all parts of the property you are considering and spot red flags such as hidden damp and any parking problems. They will take photos, videos and provide you with objective feedback about the property.  They work for you, not for the lettings or estate agents so are completely unbiased when it comes to giving you their honest opinion. They will have good contacts though with the estate agents so will often see properties before they come on the market to give you the best chance of getting the property you really want!

4. They will liaise with Estate Agents/Lettings agency on your behalf

Should you like the property then the relocation service can liaise with the estate agents and act as a go between, taking care of mundane tasks and asking the right questions. In this competitive housing market, having a relocation agent can put you at an advantage as they will be able to put you in the best light possible when it comes to the vendor/landlord making a decision on who to accept as a buyer or tenant. When someone uses a relocation service is shows their commitment to the move so reduces the risk of time wasters or someone who may change their minds.  Using a relocation service will free your time up, allowing you to spend your time doing other things.

5. Offering in-depth information about the area

If your offer is accepted a relocation agent will be able to support your through the process. They will provide information on health services, schools, utilities and even where to get your furniture from!

6. They can be your reliable person on the ground  before you move

Relocation services offer a host of other services. Steel City Relocation Services for example also offer “waiting in” services. Should you require your furniture to be delivered prior to you moving in they will wait at your property and ensure the delivery people can get in.  They can even organise for someone to set up your flat pack furniture.

7. Offer interim services whilst you relocate to the UK

If you have signed for your property but cannot move in immediately, a good relocation agent will check in on your property regularly, making sure that everything is safe and ready for your arrival. They will deal with any post and make sure the heating and water is working.

8. Help with trades people and support staff

When you do move in, your relocation agent will be ready and waiting to help with anything you need on the day. They can provide details of reputable removal agents, solicitors, surveyors as well as trades people.  They can even provide recommendations for support staff such as nannies, gardeners and cleaners. They can do this because they live in the city you are moving too so have a lot of contacts and people they may have used themselves. A good relocation service will be there for you throughout your journey, making it as smooth and stress free as possible. They are a safe pair of hands and friend for you in your destination location.
