What to expect when relocating for a job?
Corporate benefits are different to each employer. Your HR will provide you with the specifics of your relocation package and first steps. Depending on what benefits your organization provides, you’ll be directed to a specific mover, or you could be expected to find a mover of your choice. Either way, Corrigan’s knowledgeable team will be available, assisting you during every phase of the way.
Your Home Survey
The total cost of your move is calculated based on the total weight and miles, a home survey is necessary to estimate the weight of your shipment. For the home survey, you will walk a moving representative throughout your house and any other buildings, discussing what will be part of your move. You will be asked to open doors, cupboards, drawers as well as see under beds for belongings that are easily forgotten!
*Virtual home surveys have greatly become the primary form of performing a move survey for our corporate relocation transferees. Regardless, in-home surveys with a personal moving representative are still a choice.
Reviewing the Quote & Honing Moving Services
After doing your move survey, you will be provided a relocation estimate. Corrigan’s move coordinator will be able to discuss the quote in detail and offer choices for staying within your allowed relocation budget.
Some things to consider while sizing your relocation needs to bring down the cost of your relocation:
- If packing has been included in your estimate, you can bring down the overall price by packing your own belongings, or, lowering the packing to include just the fragile things.
- Donating or selling items that you don’t actually need will lighten the load, extend your relocation budget, and declutter unnecessary items in your new home.
- there’s adaptability in your schedule, and you are able to move your dates a little; you could see a reduction in cost. Make sure to let your move representative know if your dates are adjustable.
