The first order of business for future expatriates is often a visit to the location of the possible new assignment for a pre-move orientation. The purpose of this trip is to acquaint the transferee with their new work and living environment, local living conditions as well as identifying housing options. This visit is very important
and sets the foundation for an organized and comfortable transfer in addition to establishing peace of mind.

The pre-arrival orientation includes area familiarizations, assistance with school selection and home viewing. The scope of these services is based on the needs of the transferee and the primary goals of the visit. These objectives are determined by the completion of The Delaney Agency Pre-Arrival Questionnaire as well as direct client requests. Around these objectives an itinerary is established to provide for a concise and organized program.
