Bridge the Gap To Moving

Relocating anywhere can be a stress in itself. Then there is the added fact you have you live in temporary accommodation until something more permanent turns up. Now all that stress and worry can be handled with the help of us. Ben Glover finds out more.

It is a place we have all been to at some point in our life – moving home. Some have moved to a different part of the world, some in the same country or even city. Either way it can be headaches at the ready with your only friend a packet of paracetamol. Then there is the cost estimated at an average £3000 a move, adding the admin fees, hire cost and cleaning charges it all adds up.

The problem with many people who relocate for business reasons is hunting for that right place to live. Sure many companies help with the relocation fees but what do you get for that, a tiny box room with food that requires a small mortgage to buy thus blowing the budget after only a few days. And then there maybe the family in tow doubling the pressure to settle as soon as possible in order to reach some point of normality.
