Settling in Services
Settling In Services
Here at Crown Relocations we provide a comprehensive programme of cost effective services carefully designed to ensure that families can settle happily into their new location. It is all too easy to get caught up in the logistical details of a relocation and forget to address the emotional strain a relocation often has on families. But Crown’s expert consultants have decades of experience streamlining and tailoring these settling in services to minimise your stress levels and enhance your relocation experience.
Traditionally settling in services have been primarily provided by companies to employees on transfer, but this is fast changing with a growing demand from private movers who recognise the many benefits gained by utilising settling-in support.
Our dedicated team of specialist Crown relocation consultants are strategically located around the main centres in Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Hawkes Bay, Palmerston North, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch and Dunedin. They will take a hands-on role and work closely on an individual basis with all relocating families, assisting in identifying housing and education needs. Their aim is always to get people settled quickly into permanent accommodation while minimising the cost of the transition period.
This is an organised tour typically completed upon arrival at the new location – although in some instances clients prefer an Orientation Tour to be undertaken some time prior to the physical move. Each tour is tailored to meet individual needs and address specific questions and concerns about the new environment. A typical tour would include local schooling and housing options, banking, transportation system, sports clubs, medical facilities, leisure activities, shopping centres and other specific interests.

We understand that when undertaking a significant move most customers are often highly focused on the needs of their children. The school search programme is tailored specifically to each families’ individual needs and circumstances. A Crown assisted school search involves a pre-arrival assessment with a Crown relocation consultant, followed by a half, or full, day visit upon arrival at the destination. It includes a full overview of the education system, in-depth information on available education options and an introduction to appropriate schools. Find out more about our school search service
Our home find service facilitates the sourcing of suitable housing options quickly and cost effectively upon arrival. It involves the provision of detailed real estate information and advice with regards to housing conditions and prices at your New Zealand location prior to arrival. Once there we arrange conducted visits (generally 1-2 days) to a shortlist of homes that match your criteria. Our Crown Relocations consultants will explain the merits of each property, taking into account school zoning, local community facilities and other noteworthy factors. Once a property is found, our consultants can provide assistance with negotiating the lease and/or purchase price on favourable terms. Find out more about our home find service
Tailored relocation services
In many instances our customers require a combination of support services that can include elements of the orientation tour, school search and home search programmes. In these circumstances our consultant will conduct an initial Needs Assessment with a customer and then prepare a tailored relocation service package specific to their situation. This method is very cost effective as the provision of services can be tailored to a specific budget and the programme planned to your exact individual requirements.
