Corporate Relocation: Relocating Employees

by Arik Snow on August 9, 2011

Planning to move your business to another city or state? You should definitely take the most important part of your office with you, your employees. A successful company always needs its big guns to keep it going the right way. A corporate relocation includes the relocation of its employees. There are two ways for employees to make an interstate move.

The first one is that the company buys a complete relocation package from a moving company. This will include all the office equipment, set up of the new office and finding and moving the employees a new home. This package is more favorable for an employee. As the moving company does the entire work one can concentrate and keep on delivering the goods. Moving companies have real estate agents who are experienced in assisting corporate employees identify and purchase their new houses in the right area and at a suitable price. They also help your employees sell their homes and find them temporary homes until they get a new home in the area. All you (owner of the company) have to do is call them up for quotations and you are done. Let them review everything there is to move and at the end of the day you get a few reports and now all you have to do is select the best choice for you.

The second way that employees can relocate is doing the relocation individually. Each employee is allowed to hire their own moving company and get things done themselves. In this case an employee is over burdened and mistakes can happen. With the lump of money usually given by the company It would not be difficult to choose a moving company. But still you should be aware of what is available in the market. There are hundreds of movers available but only some of them will offer you the services you are looking for. Go over the internet and read some reviews or you can ask someone who has recently relocated for a recommendation. Once you have shortlisted the moving companies you can call them up.

They will send an agent over to your place who will give you a quotation. Once you have the quotations you have to review them and choose. Now most relocation companies offer moving insurance but they don’t mention to what extent the insurance will be covered. Two types of insurances are available and with all that money by your side you should choose the actual value type insurance. This insurance completely covers up all damages. Another thing to do is hire a real estate agent to get you a house in your new area.

Hiring a relocation company will help you save your time in planning and packing. However the best fit for an employee would be if the company handles the relocation itself.
