Relocation Services

When you are relocating to another country, it is possible to get help from a relocation agency. The employer normally hires the relocation agency, but sometimes the employee does. The offers and services may differ, so it is smart to make a list of all the things you would like to have arranged for you before you start searching for the proper relocation agency.
