Corporate relocation can involve moving employees thousands of miles across the globe. ‘Relo’, as it is often known, is on the rise – and it is not cheap. According to the Worldwide ERC, in 2012 companies spent an average of $19,303 to move a new hire renter, and $70,000 to move a new hire homeowner. Companies like AGS Relocation offer such services, designed to ease the burden of both employees and companies during these challenging times.
Ultimately, the company and the employee want the same thing – a smooth transition from one place to another which takes as little time as possible and ensures that the person moving can hit the ground running in their new location.
The company also has the added incentive of wanting to keep costs down.
With that in mind, it is not surprising that the process can be both complicated and expensive, so it makes sense to use a company with proven credentials to take on such a potentially complex task.
Having a strong reputation built up over years of service in the field also helps.
AGS is one such company – and a quick glimpse at their credentials illustrates why they are such a popular choice.
AGS is a member of the EuRA (European Relocation Association), the professional industry body for relocation providers and affiliated services, as well as Worlwide ERC, the largest organization gathering more than 3’500 companies from the mobility industry.
AGS were formed in 1974, and now boasts a network of 141 locations in 94 countries worldwide.
As one of the leaders in the industry, they assist over 80,000 families to relocate each year.
