What is a Relocation Consultant?

Move specialist talking to customer

Relocation consultants are experts in all aspects of moving, including customs regulations and logistics. Sometimes called relocation specialists or move specialists, they provide hand-on support to individuals and families throughout the international relocation process. 

Does your current moving to-do list include…

  • Pre-move planning
  • Packing
  • Searching for real estate
  • Reassuring your family…(and yourself)
  • Generally stressing out?

If you are like most of us, your answer is yes!

Let’s face it, Google is great, and you can find a lot of helpful information online about relocating.

But moving overseas – especially if it is your first time – can be overwhelming. Even experienced expats who have multiple relocations under their belts can find moving complicated due to language differences, customs requirements, or other issues. 

An experienced move specialist can cut through the noise and answer your questions quickly and easily:

  • Can my pet fly with me if I am relocating in the summer?
  • Can I ship my 300 bottle wine collection? 
  • Can I import antiques without paying duty?
  • What kind of inspections does my classic car need?

An experienced move specialist will not just answer your questions. They will also help you with the logistics of your move, including preparing customs forms and booking any additional moving services you may need.

Throughout the move process, you will have their support solving problems as they arise. 

That sounds expensive. How much does a relocation or move specialist cost?

If you think hiring a relocation specialist sounds expensive, it can be. But you may be able to work with one free of charge. 

Relocation companies that specialise in international moving may offer in-house consultants as a complementary service to their clients. Ask if your relocation company offers move specialists and how many years of experience they have.
