Moving to a completely new country is a huge step. A new culture, climate, language, you name it. Regarding the new language, we can assure you this will not be a big issue. The Dutch are known for their high level of English. Especially in Amsterdam and the rest of Noord-Holland the people are very open and willing to switch to English if needed. However, in case you really want to get immersed into society here in Holland, The Dutch Houses are happy to help you with all kinds of services, like a language course for example!
Immigration to the Netherlands
We’d love to help you to become “a real Dutchie”, both culturally and legally. When moving to a different country, we can imagine you’d rather think about other things than paperwork. Thanks to our experience in expat housing and with expats who work for large and smaller companies, we can provide excellent guidance in the relocation process. Apart from taking over the administration for you, we can take care of your family’s paperwork as well if they are moving with you.
Finding your new home in the Netherlands
How do you choose your new home? Where do you start? There are a few factors that you should consider, which will help you to find your new hometown. For example, will the company that you are going to work for, (partly) financially support your accommodation in the Netherlands? This will have impact on the types of houses to consider. And on a different note: would you want to purchase a car while living here? If so, then you might not want to look for apartments in the center of Amsterdam (or any other major city for that matter). There are a lot of factors to take into account and we would love to assist you in this process. We have in-depth knowledge of the areas and houses on offer, and can certainly find your most perfect home.
A Warm Welcome to (North) Holland
Next to all the formal support, The Dutch Houses aim for distinctly personal service. We want to make you feel at home! That is why we offer services to help you move and settle in. This starts as soon as you set foot in the Netherlands. Don’t worry about transportation; we pick you up and give you a tour of the region. Moving with the whole family? You probably would like some help with finding the best school or a great new job for your partner. When moving alone, we know from experience that finding a suitable sports facility is one of the most important things. Furthermore, you might be interested in hiring a cleaning service or a gardener.
We are here to help you with anything so that you can feel at home in our beautiful country!
Get to know us, we’d love to get to know you
We understand that moving to a foreign country, even one where almost everyone is fluent in English, can be an intense experience. There’s so much you have to think about, and meanwhile, your new boss expects you to hit the ground running. This is why we emphasize on a full-service relocation experience that caters to all your needs. As said, we’ll personally pick you up from the airport, show you around, drive you to visit different houses, and even stay in touch after you’ve moved in. We’d love to help you get used to living in the Netherlands and we’re more than happy to help you settle in. While we don’t go as far as to pick your kids up from school, we’ll definitely help you pick the right one for them!
