My partner and I are typical accountants. When we first started discussing using London Relocation vs. doing it on our own, we created a spreadsheet. We determined that for our budget, we would be better off using this agency after 18 days of renting short term accommodation. And this was going to be very basic accommodation. Not to mention the endless packing up and moving, tube and taxis costs and days and days of time… So we took the plunge. In the lead up to getting to England I researched this relocation agency to death and to be honest, I was a little skeptical when I could find not one bad review online. It made me start to think that perhaps it was too good to be true. Since our day out though, I can honestly say I understand why everyone is so happy with the service. Their team were really helpful and from the outset and went through what we were looking for in a lot of detail. On the day we saw about 20 houses and would have been happy to rent about 1/3 (which is pretty good odds!) We ended up with our first choice and managed to move in 2 days after our initial viewing (and it would have been sooner but we had Good Friday to contend with!) They negotiated our lease agreement for us (including getting the weekly rent decreased considerably) and negotiating break clauses (both of these things I doubt we would have been game enough to try by ourselves). The written information they send through is invaluable and it’s how we managed to set up our power and water – strangely the real estate agent had no interest in dealing with us after we’d signed the lease, so thank god for London Relocation. I highly recommend this relocation agency, they made moving to England so simple. We had definitely underestimated how important having a home base would be when we started looking for jobs and started settling into the UK life. These guys are worth their weight in gold!
