Assignment Consultant Assistance
The consultant coordinates all services and payments for temporary accommodation under the tenancy management programme. In addition to initial contract negotiation and maintenance, support includes negotiations with the landlord or the letting agent over any extension or reduction to the term of the tenancy.
The consultant also provides advice on property maintenance, especially on how to minimise damage as the end of the tenancy approaches and arrangement of professional cleaning after the employee has vacated. Using a formal needs assessment and interviews to isolate appropriate properties, the global assignment consultant assists the family in screening facilities, executing lease agreements, coordinating moving dates and arranging for other assistance as needed.
Furniture Rental for Temporary Accommodation
SIRVA can coordinate the rental of furniture and appliances in the destination location on behalf of your employees and transferring families. We use our volume buying power to negotiate sizeable discounts, which means you can benefit from the lowest rates available. Although the delivery of rental furniture can vary by country and location, our consultants attempt to align furniture delivery with the relocating employee’s arrival dates.
Our preferred providers offer several packages for the employee to choose from based on their policy parameters. Typically, employees can expect to receive similar accommodation as they would in a corporate furnished apartment.
