Expats moving to Saudi Arabia will likely have many questions, and finding the answers to them can be tricky and time consuming.

Relocation businesses provide companies and individuals with a full suite of services including both pre-departure and neighbourhood orientation, home-finding services, lease negotiation and utilities hook-ups, as well as school selection, visits and registration assistance. Expats can have all their moving needs, including shipping and transporting, met through the help of a relocation firm. It may be an expensive route to take, but it takes all the stress off of one's shoulders. Removals companies, on the other hand, offer a more limited range of services that tend to focus on just the transportation of goods.

Here is a list of some relocation businesses to consider when moving to Saudi Arabia.
