What People Say

Moving long-term to another country is definitely not an easy journey, especially during the covid restrictions, but thanks to your services the whole process ended up being as stress-free as it could get.
After the introduction call with Monique I already had a very good understanding of all the necessary steps, required documents and the timeline. I was provided with a very handy follow-up email so I could always verify I’m not missing anything. I received great advice and tips regarding the rent market and areas which helped me to adjust expectations and search criteria.
I had a great pleasure working with Astrid as my main contact point throughout the whole process: submitting all the paperwork to immigration office, searching & setting up viewings of apartments, writing rent proposals, setting up contracts for internet & utilities – everything was pretty much done for me, all I had to do was to follow simple instructions from emails. Communication was always fast & seamless. Weeks after my arrival I’m still receiving guidance and answers to my questions as needed while settling in.
Paula helped me a lot with the remote apartment viewing process / receiving keys, going to the appointments on my behalf and having me on a video-call. She met me at my new place on the day of my arrival to hand over the keys, gave me a full tour around the building and contacted T-mobile customer support to resolve the home internet issue.
Thanks!

Hello everyone, My name is Anton, I was born in Russia and recently moved to the Netherlands as a high skilled migrant. Moving is always stressful, I thought before I moved to the Netherlands. I want to tell you that this is not the case if you are doing it with such a wonderful and great team as Connect Relocation. I would like to express my great gratitude to them for their work, for their support at EVERY step of the move, starting with obtaining a visa and ending with assistance in obtaining all the necessary documents directly in the Netherlands, assistance in finding housing, opening bank account and much, much more. Thanks to this team, my move was no more difficult than moving inside my native country. The whole process with their help was as smooth as possible, with zero stress. If you are planning your move to the Netherlands, then be sure that you have made the right choice by contacting Connect Relocation team for help. Thank them very much!

In terms of my feedback, I think what you provide is really twofold: there’s the actual relocation service, and then there’s the confidence and peace of mind. This was our 3rd international move (though our first with our dog), and it was by far the easiest, which is particularly remarkable given that we made this move in the middle of covid. I remember after my first conversation with Astrid, I felt like you all really understood what we needed and what was important to us, and I especially felt the confidence that it was all going to be possible. Since then, it’s been surprisingly easy and smooth. Astrid helped us find the right schools and navigate the process of finding a house within a reasonable distance. Even when we began exploring a city (Utrecht) where the Connect team didn’t have as much experience with the rental market, they were able to find the right people who could help us figure out a very difficult housing market – and we ended up finding the perfect house for our family and moving in the moment we arrived in the country. We’ve been here just over 3 weeks now, our kids are in school, all of our utilities are setup, we’re registered with the town. It’s been so seamless, I really can’t believe it. If we would have tried to do this ourselves from a distance, I’m not sure that we would have been able to…and even if we had, it would have been much more expensive than the service that Connect provided for us. I would recommend them in a heartbeat for anyone considering moving to The Netherlands.

Your services for our move from Antibes to Zaandam were very good. It made sure of a smooth transition and we didn’t feel much of a difference with the move. From finding the apartment (with video visit), setting up utility to finding school for our son, it was good and informative. Thanks to the calls you planned at each step I was aware of most of the dutch processes and laws around living in NL even before we moved here. Because of your help we didn’t have any surprises (specially in these COVID times). Thanks for all the help

I enjoyed working with Connect Relocation very much. Most of all I liked the personal approach, especially at stage of the apartment search. It’s funny that when I finally chose the apartments, it was the first option that was sent to me, and it had all the features that I needed, even the minor ones. I also appreciated that all information was structured and given at the right moment, so the relocation wasn’t that overwhelming. And special thanks for asking me to do some steps in advance, like getting the public transport card in the airport, it was very handy later.

I think that I cannot name anything that you can do better, so thank you again for such a great job!

The team at Connect Relocation put me at ease from our first interactions. They were kind, empathetic, and asked me the right questions to find what I was looking for. Moving to another country is a stressful and difficult process at the best of times, but during the COVID pandemic, it certainly wasn’t made any easier. By leveraging their expert knowledge of the Netherlands, they were able to guide me to the right locations, put me in touch with the right services, and even hosted remote viewings so that I knew where my new home was before I was in the country.
Going beyond my initial considerations, the team had organised meetings in the city of residence to get my Social Security number and bank account created.
I don’t think I would have been able to juggle all the factors required in moving countries by myself, and I’ll be forever grateful to Connect Relocation for their great work and care.”
I sincerely mean it! Thanks so much for helping me get started in the Netherlands.

Dear Connect Relocation BV team

You guided me and my family through the relocation just impossibly perfectly by:
1. Answering extensive lists of my questions, each and every – accurately and in detail
2. At each step providing me with just in time information I needed, preserving from irrelevant one at the moment
3. Communicating with each external provider instead of myself whenever it was possible and thus reducing my cognitive load
4. Being friendly, compassionate, supportive and empathetic
I couldn’t have imagined such a complex process especially during pandemic might go so smoothly. You made me love your country even before stepping out of the plain. I greatly appreciate all your help, it was a pleasure to go through it with you.
Thank you once again!

Joe and I always felt in good hands with Connect Relocation team. The team was phenomenal at walking us through the process, understanding our needs,  and setting expectations. We were confident that everything we needed would be done timely and correctly. Connect Relocation is a pleasure to work with and we feel very lucky they helped us with our relocation halfway around the world, during a pandemic. We can recommend Connect Relocation without any hesitation. Thank you so much!

The decision to ask Connect Relocation for assistance with the home search was one of the best decisions I made last year. The market for apartments in Groningen is challenging, and therefore Connect’s assistance saved me a lot of stress. They found us a nice place that met our expectations. What is more, when we had some problems with the energy provider (the company wrongly claimed they didn’t get a signed contract from us and threatened to cut the electricity off), Connect acted quickly to solve the issue. That was highly professional. If you’re looking for an apartment in the Netherlands, do yourself a favour and hire Connect Relocation.

I was so happy to get support your team.

Because I recognised that you were highly professional and deep knowledge upon immigration process in the Netherlands.  Especially in my case, I’m from outside of EU, the requirement and process of Dutch immigration is complicated to me.  I am convinced that I could not get through all process in a few month time frame unless you supported me.  If your assist was not available, I think I would have spent several month to clear everything. Not only for VISA process, I also recognised very high professional skill and service give by your team for settlement daily life in the Netherlands.Arrangement of apartment hunting, opening bank account, connecting water and energy services, your team arranged and set them up very quickly. Time spent for them were much shorter than I expected before arrived in the Netherlands.

 In summary, I was so impressed and satisfied with high professional support, transparent communication, very clear advices from your team.
