We’re here to help
Crown’s World Mobility provide a complete range of departure and settling in services. These services are designed to alleviate stress, minimise relocation costs and contribute to a positive relocation experience for our customers and their families. We have over 50 years experience in delivering these services to, and from, most worldwide locations.
Finding the best place to live
Our Crown Mobility consultants are enthusiastic advocates for the cities they live in. Their role is to understand your housing needs and provide quality information and advice on housing conditions, availability and pricing prior to your arrival. Once there, we will arrange on-site housing visits (generally 2-3 days) for both short and long-term accommodation needs. Everything will be shortlisted to your exact criteria to avoid wasted time and unnecessary viewings. Your Crown consultant will take into account school zoning, local community facilities and other relevant factors for your consideration. Once you’ve made the choice we can even help negotiate the lease and ensure you are fully informed of local tenancy conditions.
Home find service
Crown offers you the benefits of our extensive worldwide network of real estate partnerships/relationships that we have built up over many decades of business expansion. The primary aim of this service is to facilitate getting you / your family settled in a satisfactory housing option as quickly and cost effectively upon arrival as possible.
Our expert consultants will provide quality information and advice on housing conditions, availability and pricing prior to arrival. Once you are there we will arrange on-site visits (generally 2-3 days) to the short-listed homes that match your criteria. Your designated consultant will discuss the merits of each property taking into account school zoning, local community facilities and other relevant factors for you to take into consideration.
School search service
Making sure that your children are settled in can have a major impact on the success of your relocation. We will help you find the best schools for your children. Our Mobility team know the local conditions and will provide accurate information about international education systems, various school requirements and ensure that your housing choices are compatible with your children’s education needs. A structured ‘school search’ will typically include an accompanied tour of suitable schools, detailed explanation of testing procedures, and assistance with interviews, applications and enrollment.
Our programme components:
- Pre-arrival needs analysis
- Overview of education system
- Coordination of school appointments
- Assistance with enrolment process (where required)
- Fee guides and prospectus copies
When you arrive in a new country there’s nothing better than to have a good look around within a few days of arrival. After all, you will be in a brand new environment and need to acclimatise. Our escorted orientation tours are typically either a half or full day and tailor made to address specific questions and concerns you may have. This may include an overview of local schooling and housing, banking, transport familiarisation, sports clubs, medical facilities, leisure activity options and other specific interests. Our Mobility Consultants love to show off their cities so these tours are fast paced and action packed.
Bundled settlement services
In many circumstances a bundled combination of settling in services is the most cost effective and efficient use of the Mobility consultants time. Often this will include elements of the orientation tour, school search, and home search programmes.
Converting your money
An often-overlooked part of the international relocation experience is converting money to your new countries currency. It’s highly recommended to use online currency transferal companies for this, as it reduces the high rates involved with converting cash or going through a bank.
Crown proudly endorses the services of OZFOREX to make this process as easy as possible.
