A great promotion, a big raise, and a bright future—life is good, right? But what if the dream job requires a relocation? Cincinnati, OH-based, Wayne and Family Moving has a few moving tips that will help ease the logistics as you transition to your new job and your new city. Even if your employer is covering the costs, it can still be challenging in many ways. Following these tips can help with your transition whether it’s long-distance moving or a move to a nearby city.
Before you choose the moving company, be sure you understand what they offer and their limitations. For instance, can your moving company offer packing and crating services? Whether it’s fragile art or your collection of vintage coffee pots, it matters to you, so be sure it matters to your movers, too. There may be a nominal additional cost for the crating considerations, but it shouldn’t break your budget.
If you need to clear out clutter, do so before you move. Otherwise, you’re paying to move something you don’t even want. Don’t wait until it’s too close to the actual move, either. Your mind is already in overdrive with the changes you’re undergoing—the new job, the new people—and the last thing you need to think about is a chore that you’ve put off until the last minute.
Be sure you understand any limitations your employer has placed on the moving costs reimbursement. This is important simply because it has the potential to be a headache if it takes you by surprise. Keep your receipts. Your company may require you to do so, and even if they don’t, they may come in handy during tax season.
Finally, don't forget to purchase moving supplies. Ask the moving company what supplies they will bring the morning of if you have last-minute items to pack. Most will bring furniture pads, tape, and bubble wrap.
