What People Say

This summer I was moving to the Netherlands from Switzerland for work. Everyone who ever had to move countries knows how stressful it gets, and the things you have to take care of are countless. Connect Relocation was recommended to me by one of my future colleagues, who also hired this company during her move to NL. And I can't emphasize enough how happy I am that I followed her advice and hired them as well. 
Monique, who was working with me, pretty much took over all of my tasks as a newcomer - she found me a flat, arranged registration formalities, took care of setting up contracts for utilities etc etc. She's a great source of information, and came to my help any time I had questions or doubts. She anticipated my needs and made sure that my move to Groningen is going smoothly, and that there are no delays in my settling in. And trust me, one should not underestimate how difficult it is to figure everything out in a new country, leave alone finding a new nice flat in a very competitive rental market. Aside from being extremely efficient and professional, Monique is very pleasant in personal communication, and it's always nice to see a friendly face upon arrival.
All in all, I'm very grateful for their help at every step in the first few weeks that I've moved to Groningen. I definitely recommend their services to newcomers in the Netherlands.

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.

The service provided by Connect Relocation was one of the best I've ever received in any area. It made the relocation process way simpler than I was expecting and everything worked smoothly. For people that don't have any knowledge on how things work in the Netherlands like me at the moment I arrived the support provided by the Connection Relocation team is really helpful and allow us to concentrate in other aspects of the big move.
 
I would like to thank you for helping me in this process and for the great service you've provided. Especially Astrid and Paula that worked directly with me and my wife in this journey. 
Ronney Bezerra Brasil March 2019

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.

Astrid was easy to work with, spoke impeccable English, and helped present the steps we needed to take to settle in the Netherlands in a clear and concise manner.  She accompanied us as we looked at houses and had keen insight into the neighbourhoods we visited, as well as the surrounding areas around Eindhoven.  Connect Relocation was also able to help us find a house we would not have been able to find on our own.
When we applied to rent the house, they were able to negotiate a lower rent price and they did the home inspection for us.  This made it possible that when we moved from England, we could arrive directly at the home that we were renting.
Astrid also helped explain the details of the rental contract, which was very helpful because our Dutch language skills are not good enough yet to understand it all on our own.
In every way, hiring Connect Relocation to help with our international move was the best choice for us.
Amy and Tom Harper United Kingdom August 2018
It is very hard and stressful to relocate to another country and we were worried about that. But it turned out to be a very nice and smooth moving.
Even in the late night, Connect helped us and somehow very quick ordered a taxi and we safely arrived at the hotel.
During the first weeks, Connect Relocation looked after us and gave us advice, help, and care.
Pavel and Anna Shchegolev Russia August 2018
I would like to say big thanks for a great job that you've provided, especially to Monique and Astrid.
Your company showed themselves as they would really care about their clients, provide all the information that is needed with honesty. I haven't met any unforeseen difficult situations as you have provided everything before. The service of your company is one of the best that I've seen in my life 🙂
Thanks a lot!
