Re-uploaded on–24th Feb’20 (originally posted–18th Jan’20)

Relocation for work across another country, state or even city can be very challenging. It’s an exciting time for your professional life, but it leaves your personal life in turbulence! There are so many things you need to consider, and prioritization can be difficult if this is your first time.

In this post, we are discussing all the challenges that comes with relocation and how to tackle this list like a pro!

SHIFTING –

The most hectic part of relocation.

If you are moving on a long-term basis, then you have a lot of your stuff to take care of. Deciding what to take, and what to donate or give away can be stressful. We suggest making a list of all your stuff and organizing them can make a lot of difference. Do this at least 1-2 months before moving. Categorize all items as per your need and whether you can afford to buy the new one after moving.

If you are paying for the relocation, you will need to monitor the budget. In that case, consider taking help of the shipment company or movers. There are so many companies out there with an affordable range of prices. Try to go for flexible service providers, so you can decide to what extent you want the services depending on your budget.

FINDING THE GOOD PLACE TO LIVE –

Now comes the accommodation part, which you need to do before shifting. If your company is not doing this for you, then it becomes a lot tougher. You will require the help of relocation companies or online housing services for this.

Expatria also provides help in house/apartment search or temporary stay arrangements. Our relocation specialist works with people in choosing the accommodation of their choice. Call @ +91-9911997575 or mail your requirements at info@expatria.in

SETTLING WITH CHILDREN –

Nothing is difficult than moving with your whole family to another place. For children, these changes can be overwhelming. New people and a new environment can also make them stressful, which is to be expected. All this can be very exhausting but just requires time, patience and understanding to overcome.

Expatria offers settling help including school finding assistance for your children. So, just try to be understanding with your children, everything else we will help you out with!

EVERYTHING IS NEW –

Now, we understand that the cultural shock takes time to wear off, and not everyone responds to the changes thrown to them very well. But consider this a journey taking you to the path of self-discovery. Don’t overthink and try to tackle one thing at once. And you will find that there is a solution to everything.

BUY OR RENT –

Now, that’s a million-dollar question! What to purchase, what to rent? You just need to take a deep breath and think about your situation. Are you here for a shorter or longer term? Will buying the furniture or appliances be in your favour? Think about it and whatever your answer is, we will be here to help you out with that!

The bottom line is that relocation is hard, but with the right help and planning – you can make it easy! For any relocation or immigration help, you can contact us at our 24×7 helpline number +91-9911997575 or write your query at info@expatria.in
