What People Say
Your help and support for our move was invaluable. It was our source of calm and reassurance in the midst of a very chaotic process. Above all we really appreciated the effort to ensure we would have a lovely home to live in right as we arrived. A lot of people were quite surprised when we mentioned we already had a place to live as soon as we got here. The coordination for the paperwork and the proactive attitude to help in the negotiations/discussions to ensure we would have a place to live, even though we didn't have our residence cards, municipality registration or anything like that yet, was invaluable to us. We really appreciate all the help.
Connect Relocation did everything to take the stress out of our move. Of course they took care of the formal things like visa application, appointments and contracts, but also they did so many small things to make me feel like they really care about my affairs personally, and I was not on my own. Monique and Astrid had a few calls with me and answered my many emails before my arrival. When I arrived in The Netherlands Monique personally took me to every government and bank appointment and a few apartment viewings, arranging everything very efficiently so I did not have to take a lot of time off work. When we found an apartment she helped me with my move from the hotel. She was always available to call or text, and answered every question on any topic. The team helped me to make a checklist of everything I needed to do, did some of those action points for me, and followed up with reminders on the remaining things.
Monique from Connect Relocation helped me a lot finding my current flat. I felt very well advised - from the first telephone talk right through my first weeks in the new flat. Since I live a little far away I was not even once in the Netherlands during the entire time of the apartment search. Monique visited the flats, took pictures and we talked via Whatsapp, telephone and Skype. I had the impression that she was always available, responded very quick and was always ready to talk about my concerns. I greatly appreciated that since especially in the beginning of the home-searching phase many questions and uncertainties may arise. It was of great help to know that I could count on Connect and their professional advice. I got the impression that Connect Relocation is extremely service-oriented, taking my personal wishes and concerns very seriously, providing all the information I needed while at the same time always staying calm and giving the impression that we can find a solution for everything. I would recommend Connect Relocation. I got the impression that they work professionally, are reliable, friendly, and have a positive mindset (which is very important in face of the Dutch housing market ;))
A big thank you from Cecilia and myself to you and the team. It was our fortune to have your help during the last few weeks as it made everything easy and stress-free for us. Thank you as well for the kind words in the card--we just got it--and for the sentiments. We're enjoying our time here already and looking forward to what's to come.
I cannot thank you enough for your support throughout the process of finding a home for me. It has been certainly a very positive experience, and I would have not managed to do all this without you. You have definitely taken away a lot of stress so that I could fully concentrate on the relocation from Cambridge to Groningen, saying good-bye to the many friends etc. I am also extremely grateful that you are still there for questions after this process. Thank you very much!
When we knew that our large family would be relocated to the Netherlands, we knew we would need help finding a home. We contacted several relocation agencies, and Connect Relocation was the first to respond to us. They also had the best offer, which was excellent for us as we were paying for the services ourselves. We were able to discuss what services we needed the most, and then were happy with the estimate we received.
