How to Make Your Relocation Run Smoothly

October 25, 2017

RelocationWhether you are relocating for professional opportunities, being prepared for the move can make the transition much less stressful.  Here are some tips to keep in mind that will make your relocation go more smoothly.

Consider a Relocation Package

If you are moving for work, your company may have a relocation package which can be a big help. These packages may include temporary housing, a city orientation, education, government registration, health care, moving services and other services to help you get settled in. These services can even help you to set up things such as car insurance, banking, cable and television providers and more. It really helps to have support on your side when you are undergoing a relocation.

City Orientation

One of the first steps will be to get yourself oriented in your new home. Many relocation packages will include a city orientation which will give you an overview of the city and help you to get your bearings. You’ll learn about how the city is laid out, how public transport works and where important amenities are located.  This will also help you to determine where in the city you want to base yourself. You can figure out the best location that is close to schools, shopping malls and your place of work, while still within your price range.relocation

Government Registration and Immigration

If you are relocating to another country you will need to go through the immigration process. This will require a lot of official documents, such as birth certificates, work permits and other legal paperwork.  If documents need to be authenticated, it is easier to arrange this before moving. A relocation service can also assist with organizing this documentation and making sure every box is ticked.

Temporary Housing

Finding the right place to live before you move to a new country can be difficult. You may need to base yourself somewhere for the short term while you do your research and shop around for a home. Temporary housing for relocations, such as the apartments offered by DelSuites, are very convenient and much more economical than a hotel. Look for a short stay property near your place of work to save time.

HealthcareRelocation

It’s also very important to think about healthcare and how you will access it in your new location. Will you be covered by the health insurance provided by your employer? You should also register with a dentist and a doctor near where you live – before you fall ill.

School/Education Services

If you are traveling with children you’ll also want to consider where they will be going to school. Do some research into the schools in the area to determine which one will be the best fit for their educational needs. Here’s a few great tips for finding the best schools for your kids when you move.

The most important tip when relocating? Take a deep breath and stay calm. It’s a big task but if you approach it one step at a time you will get it done.

Why Furnished Rentals Beat Hotel Stays

October 13, 2017

Furnished RentalsFurnished rentals are an alternative to hotel stays when you are traveling for business or pleasure, but it also gives so much more. Here are a few of the benefits that apartment furnished rentals in Toronto have to offer.

With Furnished Rentals, you’ll have a full kitchen.

Part of the joy of traveling somewhere is checking out the local culinary scene, but if you are eating out for every meal during your trip it can get old (and expensive!). With your own kitchen you will be able to cook whenever you wish and even host guests or business meetings within your own private space.

It’s so convenient to have your own kitchen, so that you can whip up a quick breakfast in the morning before a day of sightseeing, or cook dinner for yourself with simple ingredients from the supermarket when you want to skip dining out and save money. The option to self cater is also a huge life-saver if you have special Kitchendietary requirements that make it difficult to dine out.

You’ll have much more room.

Another delight of staying in a furnished apartment rental in Toronto that you just don’t get with a hotel room is the amount of space you will have. In a hotel room you will usually just have the bed and perhaps a table, but in a furnished apartment you will have a living room, a separate bedroom and a kitchen. This means that if your travel partner wants to stay up and watch TV and you want to go to bed, you can do so without disturbing each other.

According to the Association of Serviced Apartment Providers, on average you will have 30% more space than the equivalent standard of hotel. However, they figure that serviced apartment prices are typically 20% less than hotel rates of the same standard. So, you’ll be getting more space for a better rate.

You can do launFurnished Rentalsdry.

If you are in a hotel you have to send your clothes away for cleaning, which will cost extra. In your furnished apartment, all you have to do is pop them in the washing machine, add some soap, press a button and Voila! This means that if you spill food on your shirt before an important business meeting, there’s nothing to stress about. Also, you can pack light even for a longer trip, making getting around so much easier.

You’ll have parking.

Parking in the city is a pain, but when you stay in furnished apartments you’ll be able to keep your car safe and sound in the building’s covered parking lot. This saves you a lot of hassle. Plus – you may not even need a car. Many of our furnished rentals in Toronto are so well located that you’ll be close to public transit and you’ll be only a short walk from anything you might need like shops, entertainment, restaurants and more.

When it comes to having a comfortable, homey place to stay, furnished rentals in Toronto beats a hotel room – hands down.
