Expats relocating to Italy are likely to be stressed during the process, which is normal with any move. How does a person find accommodation in Italy? Which school in Italy do they choose for their children? How does shipping and removals of furniture, personal goods or pets work in Italy?  What about Italian visas? Expats will have lots of different questions that often require looking in a lot of different places. Fortunately, relocation companies provide a one-stop solution to all of these.

The difference between removals companies and relocation companies is that relocation businesses offer companies and individuals moving to Italy a full package of services. Removals companies, on the other hand, usually offer a more limited range of services that tend to focus mainly on transporting goods. Relocation and mobility solutions include pre-departure orientation, neighbourhood orientation, home-finding services, lease negotiation and utility hook-ups, as well as school selection, visits and registration assistance.

Here's a selection of companies that can make the move to Italy easier.
