Relocation Services

Relocating means moving for a medium to long period of time to accomplish an international assignment. It involves finding a new house for the employees and their family.

Finding a new home can be difficult and costly for both the employee and the company. A&P will help the assignee find a home and a school for the children. We will provide assistance throughout the whole process.

To relocate means moving to a different place (town, country, continent) to work and live in. It commonly refers to medium-long term transfers and it involves  both the employees and their family.

A&P takes care of finding a house and a school in the most suitable neighborhood for an expatriate. Moreover, we offer personalized services to match the assignees’ needs in order to make them and their family settle and excel in a new environment.

Nowadays, international companies often have to move employees to work in a different country. Managing these processes can become time-consuming for the employee, who might not be aware of the local laws and thus incur in problems that would result in high costs for the company and dramatic effects for the assignment.

Housing is one of the main causes of aborting an international assignment. However, A&P will make sure that the assignee finds the most suitable housing solution. In addition, A&P will work to satisfy the expectations and needs of assignees and their family in order to help them accomplish their assignment abroad.

A&P will provide assistance throughout the whole process of relocation of employees, which entails a number of practical fulfillments, among them:

  • finding a home in the most suitable area for an expatriate, that will happily satisfy both the assignees and their family;
  • finding the proper international school for the children with internationally recognized qualifications;
  • drafting a lease contract according to local law;
  • fulfill mandatory registrations at local authorities.

Area Orientation

Our relocation services include visits to the new city with a local consultant, in order to get an overview of the city and the main residential areas.

It is an occasion for the employees and their family to be personally accompanied by a local consultant.

They will be able to acquire an overview of the city, including potential future residential areas, shops, schools and other facilities.

To give the assignees a real taste of the residential market and facilities of the area they are moving to. With the help of a local expert, the area orientation helps conducting a successful home search.

  • An A&P consultant will contact the assignees, prior to the beginning of the assignment, to collect their preferences; 
  • Based on the assignees’ requirements, we will organize and accompany the assignees during the orientation tour of the city. 

2-3 days for the organization, 1 day for the visits.

Temporary Accomodation and Hotel Booking

A&P relocation services also include support in finding a temporary arrangement in case your permanent housing solution is not available yet.

While waiting for your permanent housing solution to be completely ready, A&P will help you find a temporary accommodation and coordinate the required payments, or book a hotel in alignment with the company policy.

Employees will have the support of a professional to make sure they have a proper place to stay, while waiting for their permanent house to be ready.

Assignees won’t have to worry about accommodation and can concentrate on their new job.
