Many expats report that getting the support of a relocation company relieved most of the stress of their move. From pre-departure orientation and home searches to lease negotiations and neighbourhood orientation, relocation firms can provide specialised and personalised solutions. Their mobility solutions extend further than the scope of a moving company, where the focus is limited to simply transporting goods.
Relocation firms are a more expensive route but these professional consultants have the expertise to help minimise culture shock and expat worries when settling into a new home.
Take a look at some relocation companies in Malaysia, both local and international.
