RELOCAND MEETS THE NEEDS OF THE EXPATRIATES FROM THE MOMENT THEY DECIDE TO MOVE TO ANDORRA UNTIL THEIR DEPARTURE.
HEAR WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT US
When we decided to relocate to Andorra, we had very little knowledge of the area, the customs, the regulations, and no knowledge of Spanish or Catalan! RelocAnd (Marta and Silvia) were involved in our relocation process every step of the way including immigration; our Dalmatian dog; logistics for our possessions coming from outside Europe; purchasing of a car; finding a home and builders; doctors; dentists; restaurants – I could go on but the page would be filled.
These ladies are excellent.
In addition they went (and continue to go) above and beyond in assisting us with any issues that come up on a daily basis and ensuring our easy integration.
We would not hesitate to recommend RelocAnd to anybody moving to Andorra.
With much appreciation
Having recently decided to relocate to Andorra from Switzerland, my husband and I had looked at a variety of local relocation companies to help us. Of those companies, Silvia and Marta from RelocAnd stood out heads and shoulders above any of the others, and this from the outset.
In addition to their excellent network of local connections, their warm and extremely client-oriented approach made us feel in safe hands from the moment we met them. Marta and Silvia not only had very clear and readily available information and answers to our questions and queries, but also made very useful suggestions of issues we had not thought of, making the whole process of moving to Andorra smooth sailing and without any waste of time, which, when dealing with a variety of government offices, may not necessarily be the case! They accompanied us every step of the way, negotiating the sometimes tricky maze of official channels and other administrative obstacle courses, smoothly and easily, always with a smile! From the smallest questions of where to find a cleaning lady to how to import a car or fiscal matters – you can always count on getting a quick and useful answer from RelocAnd, in Catalan, Spanish or in English.
After 6 international relocations all over the world we moved our family to Andorra. Without a doubt Andorra relocation experience has been the best.
We loved the attention and dedication of Silvia and Marta. They are extremely professional, serious and clear on what we needed for the relocation. We were surprised at how easy everything was going and before we realized it we had our home, our papers, our bank account, our driver’s license, lawyer, our kids were at school, and were up and running. Since then they helped us in many different ways: they helped us get residence papers for a Philippine housekeeper that has been with us for years and we wanted to maintain her with our family (getting residency permit for foreign housekeepers is not an easy issue), Silvia and Marta showed us how well connected and how efficient they are.
They also helped us open up a company in Andorra. Also they took care of our residence renovation after two years in the country.
To be sincere they are more than a relocation company, they become our “go to person” for many things and it is just a great pleasure to get their “always on”, “always positive” response. We really appreciate them and we are very grateful for everything they did for us. Their attention, help, and support has been way more than traditional or standard service. We do not have any relationship with any of the people that helped us relocate 6 times in other countries but we have a beautiful relationship with this magnificent RelocAnd team, which show the difference in their extraordinary service.
Based on this fantastic experience, we wrote this recommendation note, to inform any new comer that RelocAnd is the company to “go to” when you plan to relocate to Andorra. I am sure you will be as satisfied as we are.
