Personalised Approach

Hi! We are Arlainé and Sherianne and we were inspired to build this business after experiencing the ups and downs of our own movements between Amsterdam and Cape Town. Moving with a family and pets was stressful as was trying to decide on whether to bring our furniture, where to live and how to find good doctors, hairdressers and the milk aisle in the grocery store!

Navigating New Spaces

Cape Town is an exciting city with so many great things to do. It is also really expat friendly. However, it can be equally overwhelming. There are many times as expats that we have felt taken advantage of, been confused about a process or felt as if we had overpaid for a service. Home.Made offers us the opportunity to use these experiences to guide our clients so that they can prioritise the exciting bits about Cape Town, and avoid some of these pitfalls.

Tailored to You

In Amsterdam, Sherianne has spent the last few years trying to recreate aspects of her life that she found comforting in her home country. This has involved finding routine, the right grocery stores for her lifestyle, the best places to have her nails and hair done, the Dutch products that most closely matched her favourite South African products and the restaurants that best cater to her diet and style. Using our tailored packages, we offer the exact same to you, our clients, so that Cape Town becomes the home you deserve it to be.

Philosophy and Products

A bespoke relocation you can count on

Home.Made offers premium luxury relocation services by taking a personalised, tailored, and customised approach to assisting individuals, couples, and families with their relocation to Cape Town. We are distinctive in the sector: Home.Made is the only relocation service in Cape Town that replicates aspects of clients' current lifestyles on the ground in their new community.

Our gold standard in expat relocation is built on the understanding that expats are busy professionals who require a stress-free, smooth, and swift transition. At Home.Made, we understand that relocating can be overwhelming, stressful, and expensive. As expats ourselves, we understand that moving between two countries is more than just shipping furniture.

It is a personal journey, and we are invested in this personal aspect of your process, which is why we are not your typical relocation service. To ensure this personal approach, clients can tailor their relocation package by picking and choosing from a list of our services. Clients are also able to select one of our Home.Made packages. Our services are available to clients at the start of relocation and beyond – after all, Home.Made clients are lifetime clients.
