The term ‘relocation’ is often associated with a particular notion: someone packing up their family to move cross-country or even internationally for a change in job or career and specifically at the request of and sometimes with the assistance of, their employer. But did you know that the majority of moves RAN (Relocation Agent Network) members assist with take place within neighbouring areas and by people managing their own moves?
It’s true! According to RAN data, nearly half of all people they looked to assist were looking at short distance moves*, within their current region. Meaning that whilst the customer may have been looking to move out of their current village, town, or city, they were still looking to stay within the same region. When we move the parameters out further, over 80% of leads stayed within the same general part of the UK. Less than 1 in 20 home movers who RAN assisted moved any great distance (e.g., North to South, East to West, or vice versa).
