What does a relocation package include?

If your employer offers you a position that is a substantial distance away from your current position, you are likely to be offered a relocation package in addition to salary. A standard relocation package covers a reasonable amount of the expenses associated with moving, such as shipping household goods, but what if you need additional support to help you find the perfect home and settle in? Well that’s where Dovetail can help! Our dedicated team can help you with house hunting, school searches and much more to make your UK relocation as simple as possible.

What is the purpose of a relocation company?

Most corporate businesses need to transfer employees to a site when their skills are required to grow the business and these skills are unavailable locally. Relocation companies are responsible for helping these employees and their families in making the transition as smooth as possible.

At Dovetail, we regularly help both individuals and families when relocating to London and the South East of England. Our 8-step relocation checklist means that every single element of the relocation process is covered, so that you can hit the ground running in your new role without having to worry about other relocation related issues.

How do I move things abroad?

It goes without saying that arranging for your belongings to be transported to your new country should be near the top of your agenda if you are due to relocate. By speaking to the relocation specialists at Dovetail, you will be provided with shipping quotes from multiple reputable moving companies, who will ensure that your belongings arrive in England safe and sound for the best possible price. Once you select your moving company, your relocation specialist will handle all the arrangements with them to make sure your household items arrive in perfect condition and in good time.
