Moving, whether it happens to be through a corporate relocation specialist, international relocation companies, or even if you are just moving on your own, can be a huge hassle. If you are getting help through a corporate relocation specialist, there are still a lot of things that you can do to prepare yourself for the move. Here are a few things to put on a corporate relocation checklist that will make the entire process a little bit easier on you, your family, and even on the people who are helping you take care of your big move.
Did you know that approximately 40 million corporate moves occur each year? As a result of all of those moves, the average company spent an estimated 16,000 Dollars to relocate this year. If you are planning on taking part in a big corporate move, then you should probably do a little bit of research first so that you know exactly what it is that you are getting into.
Before your relocation services actually come to move you to your new home, you will probably need to pack your belongings. Now, this will depend on the corporate relocation specialists that you are working with, so you will need to check with them before you decide to do anything. But if they do not offer any packing services, you will need to do it on your own. When you are packing up your kitchen it can be helpful to go through all the items, the kitchen often has the most in the home, and see which ones you do not need to take with you. This is true in every room in your home however. Decluttering is actually one of the most important aspects of your move. There is no need to being items that you will never actually use to your new home.
Moving bigger items, like electronics can be very dangerous. You should always refer to the manufactures’ guide or user’s guide for special moving instructions when you are packing up electronics. If you are having trouble finding the manuals for the items that you need to bring to your new home, then you should be able to find digital copies on the company’s website.
