Welcome to Move In Smart, an international service provider dedicated to making international relocation easier. We are a small company, but we have significant firsthand experience with moving abroad. It was never easy, and settling into our new cities always took a tremendous amount of time… but we believe travelling abroad is the best experience anyone can get. Like Candide in Voltaire’s famous book, we have learned to “cultivate our garden,” and we believe it is possible for anyone to bloom, no matter where they are planted.
Whether you are planning to relocate to the United States for business or study purposes, the right preparation can help overcome many obstacles and challenges. Move In Smart will help ease your transition to ensure you enjoy your relocation experience as much as possible.

Our goal is to simplify the relocation process and remove stress by listening carefully to our clients’ unique situations and expectations. We will make you feel at home within 48 hours. *
Every year, the United States of America attracts more and more students with their prestigious universities. And as the business world continues to get smaller, talented individuals and families are often required to relocate to the USA.
Relocation is stressful in any situation. And crossing a border to a place with different customs only adds to feelings of frustration. What do you do when your new home doesn’t match the pictures you had in your head? What do you do when your expectations are not met? When standards are different? How are you supposed to find an apartment, the right apartment, and furnish it, quickly enough without creating an enormous hotel bill in the process? You feel like you are rushing, trying and hoping to put all the right pieces together. By the time you start your job, or school, you still don’t feel settled and everything is feeling more and more complicated…
Having faced these challenges and frustrations ourselves numerous times, our idea was simple: What if we could make it easier for others? What if we could use our experiences and save people from the frustration, the stress, and the often unexpected expenses that often overshadow what should be an exciting time?
Move In Smart was created specifically to help students and business people settle efficiently in major US cities without the stress. We listen carefully, and will help you select the right place based on your requirements, budget, standards, and other necessities, before your arrival. Our range of services starts with simple assistance in finding your apartment, and goes all the way up to a complete setup: furnished apartment exactly matched to your specifications with the right number of bedrooms and beds, TV/DVD player, fully equipped kitchen, internet hookup and phone service, and paperwork for a bank account, driver’s license, green card applications, etc. We can even fill your fridge and pick you up from the airport in a limousine if you wish.

Why should I spend so much money on your services?
Relocation is expensive. Our customized services not only make moving easier, but they often save clients money in the long run by streamlining the process and eliminating mistakes. Think about it: staying at a hotel for 10 days might cost $1,500 (perhaps $2,500 or more in NYC!). 10 days of a car rental will cost at least $500, and if you choose not to rent a car and use a taxi, you will pay delivery fees to get your furniture. Plus internal phone calls overseas 3G can increase your phone bill by $200. Dining out at restaurants for 10 days could easily cost another $300. Add the cost of furniture. So consider $4,000, maybe $5,000 as a low estimate to how much it could cost you to move on your own. Conclusion: Move In Smart will definitely save you time, and probably save you money.
