What to anticipate when relocating for your work?
Corporate benefit packages are specific to each employer. Your Human Resources will give you the details of your relocation package and initiation directions. Depending on your personal level of benefits, you’ll be directed to a particular mover, or you could be required to pick a mover independently. Regardless, Corrigan’s knowledgeable team will be available, helping you during every step of the way.
Your Move Survey
Because the full cost of your relocation will be based on the total weight and miles, a home survey is necessary to estimate the weight of your household goods. At the home survey, you will walk a moving representative throughout your house and garage, discussing the things that will be part of your move. You will need to open doors, cabinets, drawers as well as look under beds for things that are easily forgotten!
*Virtual home surveys have greatly become the typical way of performing a home survey for our corporate relocation transferees. However, in-home surveys with a personal moving representative are also be available.
Assessing the Quote & Deciding Moving Needs
After finishing your move survey, you will be provided a moving quote. Corrigan’s relocation representative will be able to go over the estimate in detail and offer options for ensuring you stay within your allocated relocation budget.
A couple points to consider when refining your moving needs to lower the cost of your relocation:
- You can bring down the total cost by packing your own things, or, lowering the amount of packing to include just the essential, delicate things.
- Donating or selling things that are no longer useful will reduce the weight, extend your relocation budget, and remove unnecessary items in your new home.
- there is latitude in your dates, and you are able to push your dates earlier or later; you may see a reduction in cost. Be sure to inform move coordinator know if your dates are fixed.
