Expats moving to Saudi Arabia will likely have many questions, and finding the answers to them can be tricky and time consuming.
Relocation businesses provide companies and individuals with a full suite of services including pre-departure- and neighbourhood orientation, home-finding services, lease negotiation and utilities hook-ups, as well as school selection, visits and registration assistance. Removals companies, on the other hand, offer a more limited range of services that tend to focus on just the transportation of goods. But expats can have all their moving needs, including shipping and transporting, met through the help of a relocation firm. It may be an expensive route to take but it takes all the stress off of one's shoulders.
