Everything You Need to Know About Employee Relocation

Once you’ve decided to take a job in a new city, there’s a lot that you need to do in order to get prepared. Getting packed and moved is a big part of the process, but there are also other things to consider. You want to get to know the new area you will be living while making sure you are ready for the big moving day coming up.

First Steps in Employee Relocation

Make sure you take the time to get to know the city you are moving to if you aren’t already familiar with it. While you’re there, consider hooking up with other employees at your new place of employment to get a coffee and chat. Some of these individuals may have advice they can offer you about settling in.

This is also the right time to ask your new employer whether they will be covering any of your relocation expenses. Many offer a package to help you get settled into your new city. You should also speak with human resources to find out any specifics about the relocation that you may not be aware of.

Next Steps in Relocating for a Job

You should start searching for housing as quickly as possible, which might involve hiring a realtor to walk you through each neighborhood. You also want to take this time to consider how much you can budget toward the relocation. This will help you determine how much you can spend on packing and hiring a moving company.

Once you have a budget worked out, you can start looking for the right moving company. You should be aware when choosing a moving day that the month, week, and even day you choose will have an effect on the cost of your move. Weekend moves and moves in the summer are often more expensive.

Further Steps When Relocating for a New Position

At this point, you can start packing up your things. If you need temporary storage throughout the process, you should consider booking that quickly. There are various websites that offer options for storage units in your area that can hold your valuables until you are ready to pick them up and bring them into your new home.

If you are moving somewhere with a different climate, this is also an excellent time to start tailoring a new wardrobe. If you’re moving somewhere that is colder, you may need more layers and outerwear for your closet. Those moving somewhere warmer will want to consider lightweight clothes of linen and cotton.

Last Steps in the Process

During the last few weeks before your move, you are going to want to set a date for your mail to be forwarded. This is also an excellent time to set up a post office box if you think you will need one. Don’t forget to get your utilities transferred to the new home so you aren’t left in the dark when moving day comes. Before you know it, you’ll be all set up and living your best life.
