Area Familiarisation

When you arrive at your destination, you may feel a little disoriented due to the unfamiliar surroundings; some local expert guidance would be helpful. Our local specialists will contact you before your departure to discuss your specific needs, including the best housing locations and neighbourhoods.

We plan and customise a comprehensive area familiarisation tour for you, including a guided excursion to suitable residential areas. The tour includes essential local amenities, schools, medical facilities and transport connections, as well as any specific requests you and your family may have.

We also arrange viewings of some example properties to give you an idea of the various home styles and pricing so that you know what to expect during your home search.

Our housing consultants are on the ground to support you in making the right decision about your new location by sharing practical, everyday advice and knowledge about your new area and typical life in the new location.

Mr H. – Private Client

“We have been extremely satisfied with Joanne’s friendly efficiency and professionalism. She has been an invaluable support for us during the course both of our search and of the lead up to our Edinburgh visit.”

Ms C. – Toy Production Company

“It was a pleasure meeting you yesterday, and I could see why my team was so positive about you. I was really impressed about how your schedule and recommendations were spot on.”

Mr C. – Media Company

“Thank you so much for all your efforts, patience and, beyond that and even without being able to see you, for doing everything with a smile.”

Mr Y. – Management Consulting Company

“Now that we are officially settled in to the new apartment (and have christened it with our first IKEA trip), we’d like to take a minute to thank you & the team for all of your help over the past two weeks – I’m sure you hear it often, but we genuinely don’t feel like we could have figured all of this out without you all. Having this team to lean on has very much enabled us to have an amazing first two weeks living here, which absolutely would not have been the case had we gone at it alone. So for that, thank you all very much!”

Ms L. – Cosmetics Company

“We can’t tell you enough how much we appreciate your time, professionalism, kindness during our tour of the neighborhoods. As a result we feel more confident/comfortable about the move to Amsterdam. Thanks again for a lovely day.”

Mr G. – Banking Company

“We are really excited about the place. Keith did a fantastic job yesterday and has provided us with great service. We enjoyed the experience, and we are happy with where we are landing.”

Rental Market State of Play: May 2022

Klippa Relocation rounds up the forecasts that may affect the cost of renting and the choice of properties in the future, and balances this with a “per month” value* snapshot.

Rental Market State of Play: April 2022
