A relocation specialist is a professional who helps with aspects of the moving process, generally hired by clients who don’t have time to handle the process themselves. A relocation specialist is knowledgeable about the area their client is moving into and can suggest specific properties and real estate. They can also coordinate logistics like packing and unpacking.
That’s the general outline of what a relocation specialist does. But how exactly does the nitty-gritty of the job work? What are the benefits of hiring one? Read on to find out.
They Know Location
Almost more than anything else, what a relocation specialist can most help you with is zeroing in on a particular area once you know where you want to move. They have extensive knowledge of local schools, businesses, and services, and can advise and guide your moving decisions.
Looking to move into a specific income bracket? They know just the right little town that suits your needs. A relocation specialist is a far more relevant and comprehensive source of information than a google search or realtor.
Planning is Priority
The other main benefit to hiring a relocation specialist is if you don’t have time to deal with all of the logistics of your move. Relocation specialists can help you stay on budget, ensuring that you don’t spend more than you’ve allocated. Often, they have contacts with moving companies and can suggest one that caters to your needs and budget.
There are a thousand and one minor details that crop up when making a move. If you don’t have time to deal with them, a relocation specialist is there to handle them.
Who Uses a Relocation Specialist?
Those with high profile enough jobs to both be able to afford one, and lack time to handle all the details of a move themselves. CEOs, athletes, and high priced lawyers or doctors are all professionals for whom it doesn’t make sense to sweat the little stuff themselves.
For example, in a previous post, we looked at the process of how the president moves into the White House. A relocation specialist is exactly suited to that kind of situation, and would be invaluable: the president elect’s time is already at a premium, and figuring out furniture and decor details isn’t something that requires his personal attention.
