Meet Our Partner - Tips4Expat

As an international there are a lot of steps to figure out in order to make your dream of working and living in the Netherlands a reality. It can be overwhelming to try and decipher the Dutch system and to know who to turn to for help. Although our focus at Undutchables is on helping you find a job, we know that getting established in the Netherlands involves more than just landing a great new position. That's why we have teamed up with some great companies that can assist you with the other steps of the process. We interviewed one of our partners this week and want to give you a chance to get to know them and learn about their services as well, so without further ado, let us introduce our housing and relocation services partner - Tips4Expat.

1. What is Tips4Expat?

Tips4Expat offers tailor-made services to prepare, welcome, guide and integrate individuals & families to their new relocation adventure. We provide “á la carte” services to help both corporations and individuals.

Relocation can be a great adventure but also a challenging one.
First, the Tips4Expat team takes the time to get to know you and your family's, or your company and employee‘s, specific requirements. Depending on the client needs, we partner up with other professionals when necessary, such as real-estate agents, moving companies, financial advisors, education specialists, life coaches etc.

Our main focus is to plan a safe and smooth landing for our clients and their families in their relocation adventure.

Tips4Expat was created in 2016 for internationals by internationals. We know how it feels to relocate to another country. The Tips4Expat team has experienced it many times in and outside of Europe. We understand every relocation aspect to and from The Netherlands.

Each client is unique and deserves a unique service.

2. Why do you do what you do?

The main mission at Tips4Expat is to prepare the smoothest landing possible for our clients in their new host country. We really put the emphasis on the human factor - taking the time to understand our clients and their unique requirements. We value personal relationships, listening, understanding, and adapting for the relocating client.  

Thus, our tailored services are designed to make settling into a new country and a new culture a positive and exciting adventure. Due to the complexity of the relocation journey efficiency and personalization are integrated in our T4E approach, using our efficiency-based business processes from years of experience to handle all aspects of expatriation. 

3. Which products/services do you offer?

Tips4Expat offers a comprehensive “à la carte” service to organizations, individuals, and beloved ones relocating to the Netherlands. Our packages are adapted to each and every client. Our personalized assistance begins with a kick off exchange allowing us to design your tailored relocation support plan.

For every client need we have an answer. We are like The “Swiss knife” of relocation, providing solutions for all the relocation topics - relocation mindset, virtual or face-to-face housing search, support for renting or buying, partner integration support, administrative aspects, day to day life information, and more. For those leaving the Netherlands, our “outbound relocation” package ensures a smooth departure.

The motto of Tips4Expat is: “Happy family = Happy employee = Happy company”!
Our goal is to ensure a smooth transition and landing for our clients.

4. What is the current market like in your industry?

The overview of the relocation market shows that over the last few years not only were there many people relocating for their company, but also more and more people have been choosing to initiate their own relocation as a “life project”.

On the housing aspect in the Netherlands, the market is challenging due the shortage of houses, government regulations

 and challenging economy. Especially in and around the bigger cities, it is difficult to find a property and settle down.
At Tips4Expat, we have the special expertise and network to help with this. Knowing how the system works, we efficiently negotiate and complete our clients home searches and find their new “home sweet home” sticking to the local market reality.

We love challenges and impossible is not in our vocabulary!

5. What are your unique selling points for the international community?

  • The T4E personalized and comprehensive approach and services: Our “à la carte” vision ensures that individuals, families, and businesses receive tailored relocation assistance to meet their specific needs. 
  • The T4E expertise and proven efficiency process: Efficiency-based processes, our “Swiss knife” skillset, and our partner network ensure a smooth and efficient landing for our clients.

Tips4Expat was created by internationals for internationals, so we know what we are talking about and can take a personal and relatable approach with our clients. 

6. What has been your most memorable moment working with internationals?

The most memorable moments working with internationals are when we receive heartfelt reviews from our clients that encapsulate the essence of the Tips4Expat mission.

Our clients often express profound relief and happiness, highlighting the challenging nature of relocating and the potential for significant emotional and logistical strain. We especially love it when the review emphasizes the vital role that the Tips4Expat team played in facilitating a smooth transition and allowing our client to focus on other important matters. It underscores the importance of providing not just housing solutions but also a whole relocation support with arrival assistance, day-to-day practical information, cultural insights and unwavering support throughout the entire process. It underlines our core mission: Tips4Expat is your relocation partner in every step of the way.

The acknowledgment of our dedication, professionalism, and ability to make difficult things easy always leaves a lasting impression, reminding us of the meaningful impact we have on individuals navigating the complexities of international relocation.
Happy clients = Happy Tips4Expat team

7. Do you have any industry tips for our readers?

Moving to and from the Netherlands can be overwhelming and can also have a significant impact on the rest of your family. Not to mention the challenges of adapting to a new culture, navigating different rules, and adjusting to a new environment.

While you can choose to research and prepare for this transition on your own, it's easy to get lost, leading to frustration that can also affect your family—a kind of domino effect you'd rather avoid.
You don't have to do it alone, Tips4Expat team can be your partner every step of the way.
We firmly believe that the human factor is the cornerstone of our service. Our dedicated international team will always go the extra mile to ensure you a seamless transition.
