What to anticipate when relocating for your job?
Corporate benefit packages are different to each company. Your benefits administrator will provide the particulars of your relocation package and first steps. Depending on what benefits your organization provides, you will be directed to a specific mover, or you may be expected to find a mover on your own. Either way, Corrigan’s skilled team will be with you, assisting you during every phase of the move.
Your Home Survey
Because the cost of your move is calculated based on the weight of the shipment and total distance, a home survey is needed to determine the weight of what is being moved. During the move survey, you will show a professional moving representative throughout your home and out-buildings, discussing the things that will be included in your shipment. You will be asked to open doors, cabinets, drawers as well as see under beds for things that could be forgotten!
*Virtual surveys have vastly become the main form of conducting a move survey for our corporate relocation clients. All the same, in-home surveys with a personal moving representative are also a choice.
Reviewing the Estimate & Deciding Moving Needs
After finishing your move survey, you will be given a moving quote. Corrigan’s move coordinator will be able to discuss the estimate in detail and give choices for ensuring you stay within your allocated relocation budget.
Some things to think about when sizing your moving needs to reduce the cost of your relocation:
- If packing has been included in your quote, you can bring down the total price by boxing your own items, or, lowering the packing to include only the essential, fragile things.
- Did you include belongings that you no longer need? Giving away or selling items that you don’t need to save will lighten the load, extend your relocation budget, and declutter unused items in your new home.
- Are your moving dates flexible? If there is flexibility in your schedule, and you can adjust your dates forward or backward; you may see a cost savings. Make sure to tell move representative know how adjustable your move dates are.
