Relocation service

In the late 1980s various financial institutions and insurers presented relocation service to its clients. Collaboration with market leaders in the moving business was therefore unavoidable, because it quickly became apparent that managing a move involved a completely different discipline and knowledge during an international transfer. Not to mention the impact a move has on a family. Change of house, environment, language, friends and / or schools quickly turned out to cause a major cultural shock.

The owners of Yellow Move have also followed and experienced these developments. We are convinced that relocation service from ‘movers heart’ can be managed much better than, for example, by an accountant or financial institution.

Yellow Move also works in collaboration with your own trusted suppliers such as your banker, accountant or insurance company, if you prefer. You are welcome to ask us for advice.
