This guide was written prior to the October 2023 escalation of hostilities between Israel and Palestinian militant groups. The ongoing conflict has markedly affected the safety and advisability of travel to the region. Please consult with relevant authorities and exercise extreme caution when considering travel to Israel and the surrounding areas.
Relocation companies should be an expat's first port of call when navigating all the complications that a move to Israel would entail. There is often lots of uncertainty when relocating, leaving expats feeling stressed out and drained. These companies can handle everything, whether it's pre-departure particulars, neighbourhood orientation, home-finding services, utility hook-ups or school selections.
While removal companies offer a more limited scope of services, purely focusing on transporting goods, relocation companies provide solutions to all aspects of the move.
Here is a list of some relocation companies in Israel.
