If you’re planning to relocate just a few employees to different offices or even planning a large-scale relocation of your entire workforce, you may think you can do it in-house, relying on your human resources staff to assist in booking a relocation company to, well, get things moving.
But a relocation company (otherwise known as a moving company) may not offer all the help you need. Don’t be mis-led by a name. A relocation company, which often estimates the cost of a move based on weight and mileage, offers little more than packing and transport services. Sure, a relocation company can help you transport your household goods, pets and vehicles — and do it well. But when you’re talking corporate relocation, there’s a lot more involved.
Understanding What a Relocation Management Company Can Do
A relocation management company will provide one single point of contact for all your other relocation services (including that relocation, or — more accurately — moving company). If you already work with relocation management providers, there might be no need to switch.
Your relocation management company will assess relocation service providers and the value they offer, making recommendations for new service providers when appropriate.
