Checked out from Istanbul and can vouch for the role of Turkey Relocation team in making our stay most comfortable and delightful. Apart from the usual great things that the team brings to the table, their resourcefulness, both inside and outside our company, is remarkable. This combined with the human connections that the young (yet experienced) Turkey Relocation team establishes with expats/families stands out. My family and me have benefited tremendously from Pelin’s and Ecemsah’s patient counsel on all walks of expat living. Team will always be on top of my reco list of partners to work with.
It was a lovely experience with Turkey Relocation, especially with Pelin, Fırat and the rest of the team. Your level of hospitality and client support was top notch. You are great professionals and great human beings! Take care, and wish you all the best!
I enjoyed working with Pelin and Meriç during my time in Istanbul. I appreciated their consistent courtesy and patience, in particular when providing their services in more abnormal or challenging circumstances.
“I have been dealing with Turkey Relocation Team for almost 3 years now, the team is highly professional, knowledgeable, supportive and friendly.
Turkey Relocation Team showed fantastic planning ahead when it comes to dates and documents required for my work permit renewal and my kids residence permits, they also arranged the appointments with immigration authorities in a professional way where all the authorities requests were fulfilled and documents provided in a timely manner which made this process really easy and time effective for me.
When it comes to housing processes, the team provided an accurate shortlist in different neighborhoods satisfying my needs with all related information about access to public transportation and nearby services, they extended their timely and effective support after i moved to the selected home providing help specially when there is a language barrier.
During COVID-19 times the team was always available and supporting when it comes to announcements and government decisions updates providing timely information with translations and extending their follow up and support whenever needed.
I’m glad that I’m dealing with such professional teams, especially Ecemşah, Pelin and Firat with the great support of Duygu.”
I would be happy to recommend Turkey Relocation and particularly your help and support to my family. Whenever me or family needed support, I found the team ready and willing to lend a helping hand. I am particularly thankful to Pelin Ozmen for her exceptional support. Best wishes and success to the team for future.
Thanks and Regards,
I would like to express my gratitude to the company of Turkey Relocation Management Services and personally to the company employees Fırat and Ecemşah for their work. They did a great job of preparing all the necessary documents, starting from a contract for the rented apartment and connecting utility services, ending with paperwork for a work permit for me, and an accommodation permit for my family. Such assistance is difficult to underestimate for a foreigner. All the help was provided even at the most awkward times and without any delays during the paperwork.
“Relocation to another country always means a lot of stress and difficulty, and many do not pass the test and return home.
I was lucky in my relocation as I was assisted by Fırat and Ecemşah. For any question, even for the most insignificant one, I always received a detailed answer. When we had difficulties about the house or with the landlord, about any kind of paperwork, questions with the Internet or cellular communications, we always had the opportunity to write a letter or call the Global Mobility Center staff and get a detailed answer.
After almost one year of living in Turkey and recalling the difficulties that I encountered when I came here, I think that the main merit in my calmness and successful arrival is the help of Fırat and Ecemşah.
Thank you for all kind of support.”
“I’d like to state that we were very satisfied with services provided by Ecemşah from Turkey Relocation team with her proactive approach to the job. Thanks to them, there was no need to worry about the expiration date of residence/work permits, as they would remind in timely manner. I did not meet any difficulties in attaining work/residence permits in this process as I only submitted requested documents to Ecemşah from Turkey Relocation team and the job was done.”
“Let me express my sincere gratitude for your fruitful cooperation. The responsibility with which your company Turkey Relocation Management Services approached the process of transporting my family’s belongings, as well as the speed with which documents were processed pleasantly surprised me. I would especially like to mention the assistance of your employees Fırat Bakır and Ecemşah Güven. Thanks to their efforts, responsiveness, and desire to always do their work efficiently, my family and I quickly completed all the necessary documents for living in Turkey, including residence permit and house rental. Placement of children in school and many other related issues were also quickly solved thanks to Fırat and Ecemşah as they were always ready to help with one call. I sincerely hope that in the future you will remain in the list of our company’s partners. I wish you and all your friendly team success in the professional field and prosperity!”
“The team at Turkey Relocation have been phenomenal in providing quality relocation services from the day my wife and I landed in Turkey. Pelin and Fırat provided tremendous support and ensured a very smooth immigration process for the both of us. They have also extended utmost support with our settling in which enabled us to feel very comfortable in a new country and continue our lives hassle free. Both Pelin and Fırat are very approachable and resolve all issues efficiently and in a timely manner. I am very pleased with their support and have my strongest confidence in their abilities. Highly recommended!”
“Moving to a new country is always a challenge because of the huge amount of details that you need to take care of. Having the right partner for relocation service is the key to make it a smooth one. This is exactly what I got dealing with Turkey Relocation, specifically Pelin and Meriç. Starting from the VISA process, awareness visits, households movement, schooling, house searching till day to day support during my last 12 months in managing residency renewal and continuous follow up. They are very responsive and professional. They are subject matter experts on what they are doing and when they don’t know they simply continue searching till they provide the right answer on the right time. Can not imagine my move to Turkey without their professional help. Managing deadlines, documentation and the move itself sometimes associated with stress and some anxiety. Yet, with their always calm attitude, you always feel safe and in good hand. Thank you Pelin, Meric and Turkey Relocation!”
“The support that I am receiving from Turkey Relocation is highly appreciated and important for our family. As we are in our second year of assignment, the need for frequent support has obviously decreased.
However, just recently the team has supported us in a very proactive way to extend the contract with the landlord. This went very smooth and did not require any more work from us than signing the extension.”
“I would like to thank you for all the support you have provided me during last year. I was able to rely on you for all issues and requests. You have always responded fast, effectively and with a great attitude.
So far you have shown expertise in all topics I queried about and you have been very helpful. I would like to wish you a successful 2020!!”
“I lived in Turkey for +4 years during the period Aug 2015 – Dec 2019 working as the Marketing Director Consumer Healthcare in a global pharmaceutical company. During my expat assignment, where I was based in Istanbul, along with my family, we had the pleasure of having Pelin Ozmen as our primary point of contact as our relocation consultant working with Turkey Relocation. During the time we have worked with and known Pelin, I found her to be extremely dedicated and professional in handling situations where we required her assistance. Not only was she very quick in responding but was also great at following up issues till proper closure.
She has a wealth of experience and contacts when it comes to helping to resolve various types of issues that an expat might face in a new location. She is a thorough professional who exhibits patience and articulates her point of view well thereby making communicating and working with her a great experience.
I wish her the best of luck for the future and would highly recommend her in the role of relocation support.”
“Both Meric and Pelin have been assigned to me and I have had nothing but great experiences with them. They have been more a friend rather than a consultant and always there to help when needed. Always very responsive and patient in responding to questions, problems or concerns. These both are an asset to the company and should be recognized. I have had more interactions with Pelin and she has built a trust relationship where if I give her something or ask something, she will give the best possible answer or solution. She is indeed someone special and should be treasured!
Thank you for making my experience in Turkey feel like home.”
“I’ve found Turkey Relocation team is always helpful and considerate. They try their level best in finding a solution and have good insights about typical issues that expat families can face in Istanbul, Turkey.”
The team of Turkey Relocation has provided an extraordinary service to me and my partner and we are very happy about the way in which they received us in Istanbul. They are excellent professional but even more importantly great human beings. They pay attention to every little detail and make you feel at home from the first day you arrive to the city. They really go the extra mile to help the expat feel comfortable at every step of the relocation process.
Thanks to Duygu, Tuba, Leila and Müge and the rest of the team for their fantastic support.
“I am in the process of shifting over to Istanbul along with my wife and a three year old daughter. I have been coordinating with Turkey Relocation team for the last two months that has involved a familiarization visit to Istanbul as well.
I have found the team led by Duygu thoroughly professional and meticulous in their ground work. I was impressed with the way in which my preferences on housing options were taken before-hand and three-day schedule was mailed across a week before we were to start our familiarization trip. Once in Istanbul, me and my wife were further impressed with the patience levels and listening abilities of Duygu’s team, which was punctuated with timely recommendations from them. This not only helped us to express our preferences/non-preferences to the team in a more effective manner, it also helped bring clarity of our thoughts. We also found the levels of process adherence very remarkable, which was demonstrated in dispensing of important information of relocation policies as well as city info. All in all, we are extremely satisfied with the work done on housing and schooling options and looking forward to our settling down in Istanbul with the help of Turkey Relocation.”
The team Turkey Relocation has been extremely diligent in every step of the way during my relocation from Bogotá, Colombia to Istanbul. They have taken careful and considered approaches at every moment making the transition very easy.
They did take the time to make sure that my preferences and needs were taken into account – especially during my accommodation period – making it feel very smoothly.
Duygu, Müge, Nisan and the rest of the team have been very kind, approachable, honest, transparent and tremendously helpful! They are open-minded, know how to adapt very easily, and they make sure I felt comfortable with every decision that was made. Really happy to be relying in such a competent team.
“Turkey Relocation Management Services provided excellent support for my move to Istanbul from Sarajevo. At each stage they were well prepared: my own preferences were well taken into account for accommodation selection and the company was highly responsive over email with answers to questions arriving back on the same day or within the shortest possible time frame. The removal of personal effects was done quickly and very professionally. I felt greatly reassured about my move from the accommodation support provided. Once on the ground, all the needs were met from airport pickup to temporary accommodation. Everything that was foreseen was delivered on time. The company provided representatives to accompany me through administrative procedures which was simply indispensable. Turkey has complex regulations and the company navigates these very knowledgeably and competently. They maximised the time available to deal with multiple processes simultaneously. Within the first two weeks, the majority of the expected official administrative procedures had been completed.
“The company and its representatives have also been more than willing to take on more complicated items such as car import – not a straighforward process and the orchestration of the various required processes with entry papers, insurance and technical inspection was superb. The company’s representatives followed this issue closely including at weekends to make sure everything proceeded as planned, right up to speaking to customs representatives on the phone as the car entered the country. It showed impressive commitment. I am very glad to have a continuing relationship with the company through its support to my office and will certainly be recommending their services.”
Moving to another country is a difficult decision to make, specially if, like me, you have three young kids. The expat process is never easy, but Turkey is such a complex country, with continuous regulatory changes and a very tough bureaucracy, that I would say that it is IMPOSSIBLE to successfully move without the help of a good relocation agency. TURKEY Relocation agency, and specially our caring and supportive agent, Canan, have made our life much easier, always looking after me and my family along the whole process (house and school hunting, residence permit red tape, dealing with banks and providers, supporting us in all daily life’s issues, etc.) .
Thanks to their support, moving to Istanbul last month of August was much easier than expected.
Recently my husband was relocated from Canada to Istanbul Turkey. His employer contracted the services of a relocation management service, TRMS. It is my pleasure to take the opportunity to provide this letter of reference regarding the services provided to us during our move. To assist us in setting up our utilities, phone, TV and internet, managing partner obtained a power of attorney for my husband so the company could arrange the accounts and services on his behalf. This would have been extremely difficult to arrange on our own due to my husband’s work schedule, lack of knowledge of whom and where to call to arrange services as well as language barrier. When our furniture arrived, managing partner, another colleague came to our home to provide any translation or assistance required with the moving company. We had some glass broken on our furniture and she arranged a company to come to our home and repair the damage. She took the care and time to ensure she found a reputable company that would do a good job.
The company also assisted us in organizing our banking. In Turkey it can be quite a challenging experience ensuring the monthly utility/service bills are received or just obtaining some explanation of why/what things are needed. I required assistance numerous times and they provided this service whenever needed. Personally, it was very helpful and provided comfort to have the ability to call somebody when help was needed. They worked hard on our behalf and consistently looked out for our best interest.
Turkey Relocation Management Services provided a professional personal service according to what we needed assistance with. They were always friendly, kind and courteous.
We could not have managed our relocation to Turkey without their services.
We have been using relocation services of Turkey Relocation Management Services for over two years and have always experienced an excellent quality of work. Their expertise, quality standards and support are exceptional. Our expatriates save time, energy and frustrations, thanks to your team; they appreciate the decent organization, involvement, enthusiasm and energy your team put, especially in the house search and the introduction to Istanbul. The staff has been informative, patient and helpful at all times. Professionalism and quality services are the keywords to describe Turkey Relocation Management Services.
I want to thank all the people at Turkey Relocation Management Services for showing me several key and interesting places within the city I am planning for relocation. The detailed knowledge and vast information you were able to provide was most helpful, and afterwards made me feel very secure in my decision. I highly recommend that anyone planning to move to Turkey should first consult with TRMS and their highly skilled staff. I don’t know how my transition would have been made possible without the assistance you offered. I look forward to this exciting new opportunity in Turkey, and may very well need to contact you again in the future. Thank you again for everything, it was truly appreciated.
We are very satisfied wi.th Turkey Relocation Services. All the services provided have been in time and met the qualitative standards of our company.During all the process, before and after settling-in in Istanbul, the support was continuous; the personnel were reachable at any moment, during the weekend and even late evenings. I strongly recommend Turkey Relocation for their speed, understanding, proactivity, problem solving approach and professionalism. With their services, relocation to Turkey will be smooth and efficient.
I have been exceptionally impressed with the services provided by Turkey Relocation Management Services during my transition from London to Turkey. No effort was spared to find me the property which met my exact specifications: we must have visited at least 20 properties, in the area of Istanbul where I was advised to look and Burcu Ozdemir was tireless, and patient, in her efforts to find me exactly what I needed. The transition service after arriving in Turkey has also been excellent; I have been offered help with choosing furniture, finding a suitable home help and fixing up all the essential services in my apartment as well as a number of useful introductions both in the Turkish Community and with other expatriates. The service offered by Turkey Relocation Management Services is tailored to individual needs and both Burcu and Beliz are personable, approachable, charming and easy to work with.
I have no hesitation in recommending them both to any other expatriate seeking to relocate to Istanbul.
Turkey Relocation Management Services was the best insider help that my husband and I could have had during our visit to Turkey. From their knowledge of hotels and private residences to her connections at great restaurants (critical for two foodies) and her ability to magically make everything come together, they made sure we were taken care of like locals. My husband and I took to calling our relocation agent “The General” because her ability to get things done effectively and efficiently was outstanding. We would recommend their services to anyone who wants to get the local hook up in Istanbul!!
Via a Dutch friend we got in contact with Turkey Relocation Management Service.
We were moving to Turkey for six months with our 5 month old daughter and our dog, and needed help finding an apartment. We had already visited quite a few apartments with some real estate agencies, but found none we liked. Burcu and Beliz listened carefully to our needs, and within two days found us three apartments we absolutely loved. Apartments which weren’t on the market (yet), and absolutely exceeded any expectations we had. We now have a fabulous apartment in the middle of Bebek which is both great for a baby, a dog, and us!
Next to this Burcu and Beliz helped us getting around Istanbul, and getting settled into Turkish life. We couldn’t have asked for a better partner. They know everyone and everything, and get things done quickly. From finding furniture, curtains, nannies, even an office for my husband. Their service is outstanding.
I would describe Turkey Relocation Management Service as personal, dedicated, fast, and exactly what you need.
They are great people, and great at their work and I would recommend their services to all my friends.
I am delighted to recommend Turkey Relocation Company to anyone relocating to Istanbul. It is indeed a daunting task to start a new job and simultaneously attend to the logistic of the move. Turkey Relocation team ensured that it all came together for me. I was able to find accommodation that met my brief, within timeframe specified by Turkey Relocation, who also attended to all the details of lease requirements and utilities. In addition, relocation team followed up effectively as our representative towards everything I need in Istanbul. The Fact that the move was worry-free and smooth for me is testament to a lot of hard work and high degree of service.

We are sincerely thankful for them being so reliable and for treating our case with the highest level of flexibility and genuine enthusiasm as if it was really their own project. This is what we call customer focused and customer centric services.
This is my second international move and I can say that this experience was much smoother than the previous one. I was assigned a helpful relocation consultant (Duygu) from Turkey Relocation who identified my needs and then worked to deliver them. She also went out of her way to make sure that all the things we take for granted when living in our home countries, but forget when we move, were highlighted, organised and delivered. Requests were dealt with quickly and professionally and no request ever seemed too big or small. I am certainly grateful for their support as I know it helps with the adaptation process. I would therefore thoroughly recommend them for your relocation needs.
I want to thank you very much for your professional services and support you have provided to us. You were able to address all our needs and requirements. Our relocation consultant, Duygu, was patient and good listener. Thank you for you cooperation to find us our desired place in Istanbul.
We have found Turkey Relocation to be a thoroughly professional and attentive partner in our relocation process. The ability to see our needs through with relocation team and evolve the scope through a good understanding of our requirements has delivered great resultsina very quick and efficient manner. We can personally recommend Turkey Relocation asa strong partner for all professionals.
I appreciated the availability, quality and the fast response carried by Turkey Relocation Management Services’ consultants. The property viewings were excellent and fully matched my requirements. They were very helpful with finding an office place, its re-design and construction and moving processes. I can recommend this company to ones who are relocating to Istanbul. It has been a pleasure to work with my assigned consultant and she made our work easier on many aspects. These guys are just a phone call away. Thank You!
I’m very glad to work with Relocating Turkey and I hope to continue working with you on 2014.
Me and my wife’s relocation to Turkey has gone very smooth everything has worked out to the best of our wishes. I thank you for the prompt and efficient service.
Duygu has worked very hard to help me to find a good apartment in Istanbul. Since I didn’t know the city, she has helped me to understand the better areas, to go through the visits and to discuss with the agencies and landlords.
She has been very supportive and kind to understand my needs and to avoid that I could feel alone in the research.
I thank her very much for the job done.
Best experience of service abroad after so many relocation in Europe/Asia and Middle East and Turkey was the easiest and fun one. Turkey Relocation Management Services made everything so simple and easy for me and my colleagues.
Beliz, as manager of outsourced company, demonstrates the highest level of professionalism showing that customer is clearly at the foundation of her activities. She provides a level of service satisfaction rate which is rarely experienced in today’s global business environment.
Hi Turkey Relocation,
I just wanted to say thank you for all the help you have given us since we arrived. It has been really great to have that support and feels like we are finally settling in.
Take care and thanks again.
I reached Turkey Relocation through a friend. From the first minute they were really helpful and tried to present solutions according to our needs and preferences. We found exactly what we were looking for at a great price and all the items that needed to be negotiated they helped us with those as well, since the language was a barrier between us and the rental company. If you need to find an apartment in Istanbul, get in touch with them, they will present you really good options according to your budget and preference. Thank you…
Thank you for your services I got ! Last time, I had been under emergency when I lost everything. At that time, I really appreciate your help. Also, you always respond to my request immediately not only business days but also holiday. Therefore, I would be satisfied with your service actually.
Thank you as always.
I must thank Turkey Relocation Management Services for the utmost professionalism. By this it currently helps me finding my way in rules, regulations and habits in Turkey and more particularly in Istanbul.
Thanks again for your continuous support.
“Having sort residence in many countries throughout my professional life one thing that has proven abundantly clear time and time again, is that understanding and navigating the various bureaucratic hurdles that one must face, is always the hardest part.
As such it is essential to have the support from the outset of an experienced team who can help mitigate the stress from what appears to be an ever changing regulatory process.
Turkey Relocation Management Services were key in overcoming all of the challenges that presented themselves during the process of the last minute renewal of my residence permit and my agent was always available in person or at the end of the phone to address the inevitable last minute surprises.
Without their support I very much doubt I would still be enjoying my time in Istanbul.”
