Relocation businesses abound in the United Kingdom, both locally-based companies that may focus on a region, such as in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, and international companies that offer relocation services worldwide.

When moving to the UK, expats have much to organise, and visa and immigration regulations are constantly under revision. To ease the burden of the move, relocation specialists offer a full suite of services to corporations and individual clients. Their programmes include, but are not limited to, immigration support, shipping and removals, pre-departure orientation and language- and cultural training. They also offer home-finding services which may include everything from lease negotiations to utility hook-ups. Relocation firms are also good for neighbourhood orientation, school selections and registration assistance.

Given the abundance of relocation firms in the UK, there are several factors to consider when selecting the most suitable one. Expats must consider the cost of services (and ensure that there are no hidden costs), reviews from clients, the company's professional affiliations, extent of services provided and geographical range of cover.

For help when moving to the United Kingdom, here is a selection of relocation companies.
