Tips for the first month

Hi everyone,

I'm a dutch guy currently living in Barcelona. I have received a job offer for Project Manager in Schaffhausen to start on 14th October and I plan to move over there a week before so I can get settled before starting to work. I'm getting a little anxious and have doubts on how to approach this, so I hope that someone here can help me with advice and experiences.

My idea is to try to rent something for the first 2/3 months so during that time I can look for a bigger apartment for my family(wife and 2 kids) before they join me. At the moment I've arranged a viewing for a room in a shared flat and also to see a 1 room flat next week Tuesday 24th Sep as I'm taking the day to fly to Switzerland. Ideally I'd like to have a flat just for myself however I'm not sure if in such a short time, I'd be able to get something or I'd have to stick with the room in a shared flat. What do you think?

I've spoken over the phone with one of those relocation companies that offers support for looking and applying for flat and I'm debating myself whether it would be worth to pay for it or not. I get the impression that housing market is more than complex and since my German isn't that great yet, I worry I won't be able to do everything by myself.

Thank you all in advance for reading me. Any kind of advice is greatly appreciated.
