PorchLight Expands Global Destination Assistance Services Department

PorchLight Rental Service has expanded their Global Destination Assistance Services Department with the addition of multiple team members, as well as by extensively growing their network of destination service specialists and licensed real estate agents who provide settling-in services throughout the United States and Canada.

PorchLight has experienced a heightened demand for international in-bound relocation services and therefore, has moved to meet these needs by broadening its offerings for this fast growing segment. PorchLight’s development of an Electronic Arrival Guide has been one stand-out tool clients are embracing. This electronic guide is part of an overarching proactive approach to helping transferees familiarize themselves with information they will need in advance of arriving in their new city.

Upon arrival, they will work with PorchLight in obtaining a social security number, driver’s license, opening bank accounts and advancing funds for a security deposit and any other fees required to secure their new home.  Guidance with setting up school appointments and acclimating families to their new environment and communities is also provided as a part of PorchLight’s Destination Service offerings.

PorchLight believes this is the best approach for making the move successful for not only the transferees and their families but for their employers as well. Without the help of destination settling-in assistance, transferees are often left feeling overwhelmed and unable to transition as easily.

“We pride ourselves on the fact that PorchLight manages the entire rental home finding and settling- in process for the transferee and we are very pleased to have the client demand that affords us the opportunity to grow our Destination Assistance branch of services,” says Diane Ayres, President. “Our personal approach with the initial contact from a PorchLight International Rental Account Manager combined with our unique use of destination specialists and local real estate agents, offers the highest level of service and expertise for the transferee.

PorchLight Rental strategically works within the stipulations of relocation policies to assist transferees with their rental housing needs. Since 2003, the women owned firm has supported companies from around the globe with their rental and destination service needs, both domestically and worldwide.
